Try setting the battery level in apcupsd.conf to a high value like 90% # If during a power failure, the remaining battery percentage # (as reported by the UPS) is below or equal to BATTERYLEVEL, # apcupsd will initiate a system shutdown. BATTERYLEVEL 90 # You need to restart the apc daemon after you adjust the config files. Doing apcaccess from the shell, should reflect your changes. > > >but do these refer to shutdown of a unix client or shutdown of the UPS >itself? On the apc units I have used, it will send the "shutdown" signal to the UPS, so it will cut power to all the ports until street power comes back. ---Mike _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
