Can someone help me with something related to ups setup? I was trying to setup the shutdown command properly and was reading through the nut-doc/shutdown.txt file and found this: -------------- snip -------------------- 2. Edit your shutdown scripts to check for that flag file and then call your UPS support program to do the dirty work. Something like this should work on most systems. Change the paths to suit your setup: if (test -f /etc/powerdown) then echo "Killing the power, bye!" /usr/local/ups/bin/apcsmart -k /dev/ttyS0 fi This file may be /etc/rc.d/rc.0, /etc/shutdown, or something else. Consult a guru for your OS/distribution if you're not sure. -------------- snip ---------------------- In debian, it seems that there is no shutdown script. The file /sbin/shutdown is a binary file. I already have the following in my upsmon.conf file: MONITOR SOLA-520-750VA@localhost 1 mypassword master MINSUPPLIES 1 SHUTDOWNCMD "/sbin/shutdown -h +0" POLLFREQ 5 POLLFREQALERT 5 HOSTSYNC 15 DEADTIME 15 POWERDOWNFLAG /etc/nut/killpower This seems to work, 'cause it did shutdown my computer when the power failed. However, the computer did not come back online when the power returned. I think this is because I didn't configure the shutdown "script" to check for the existance of that /etc/nut/killpower file and run something like this: /usr/local/ups/bin/bestups -k /dev/ttyS1 How do you go about configuring shutdown for a ups in debian? Do other people have success with their ups coming back online when the power returns? Thanks for any help. Cheers. Mark.
