I am shortly going to try and install a Belkin universal UPS on one of my FreeBSD machines running 5.2 using the nut utility.
Due to a failing in the Belkin protocol it requires some custom startup/shutdown scripting to make it work in an unsupervised recovery, This is shown in point 4 of http://eu1.networkupstools.org/protocols/belkin-universal/ The shutdown code needs to be run without disks mounted as read/write since it effectively holds the machine until power comes on or the UPS batteries die, in the latter case this would cause an unclean shutdown with the disks fully mounted and system up. The startup script needs to be run before disks are mounted in read/write and before filesystem checks for similar reasons. I've looked through some of the rc scripts, namely rc.shutdown and a few others but really aren't sure as to where I should make these changes so they execute at the correct time in the boot/shutdown process. Could anyone tell me where I should be making these additions?
