apc smartups problem...

OpenSuSE 11.1
hardware: APC Smart UPS 750 RM 2U
software: apcupsd

Hi all,

I had some problems getting the UPS to work. In particular, the UPS was recognized easily but the killpower of the UPS during the shutdown did not work. I finally managed to get it working by turning the power off a bit early.

See the following mail thread for details:
SourceForge.net: Apcupsd UPS control software: apcupsd-users

I think this is an issue with the integration of apcupsd in SuSE and I suspect that somehow USB connectivity is gone at the moment killpower on the UPS is called.

I got it to work by using the KILLDELAY configuration parameter of apcupsd. I think it is a bug with integration of apcupsd in OpenSuSE 11.1. What do you think?


I have same issue on SLES 11. Killpower only works with KILLDELAY set.
