I've told systemd to wait up to 10 minutes for startup but it's still failing. Sometimes it fails with "timeout exceeded" and sometimes with the ASN error previously reported.
I went back to running upsdrvctl -D to see if I could see anything. On the third run I saw messages about "startup timer elapsed" for ups2-1 and then it tried again to launch that one (killing the existing one). It did this multiple times. When trying to systemd I see a bunch of zombie processes that used to be snmp-ups for one of ups2-1 or ups3-1 (depending on the run). I'm trying again with /etc/systemd/system/nut-driver.service.d/nut-driver.conf set to: [Service] TimeoutSec=600 and /etc/ups/ups.conf having maxretry = 10 retrydelay = 15 This time ps shows three apparently happy snmp-ups processes but upsdrvctl start is still showing up. ... and then everything vanishes but systemd doesn't complain. journalctl -xe shows a good startup then claims nut-driver.service isn't needed anymore and shuts it down: Dec 04 10:17:52 [redacted] snmp-ups: Startup successful Dec 04 10:17:52 [redacted] upsdrvctl: Network UPS Tools - UPS driver controller 2.7.2 Dec 04 10:17:52 [redacted] systemd: Started Network UPS Tools - power device driver controller. -- Subject: Unit nut-driver.service has finished start-up -- Defined-By: systemd -- Support: http://lists.freedesktop.org/mailman/listinfo/systemd-devel -- -- Unit nut-driver.service has finished starting up. -- -- The start-up result is done. Dec 04 10:17:52 [redacted] systemd: Unit nut-driver.service is not needed anymore. Stopping. I have a feeling that if I do get this working by setting huge timers I'm just cargo-culting a "fix". nomad On 12/4/17 09:38 , Lee Damon wrote: > Hi Charles, > > Running upsdrvctl -D start on the host with all three configured to > SNMPv3 kicks out 56 different "unhandled ASN 0x81 from ..." lines on all > three but importantly they all start up and keep running. > > I'm starting to suspect the startup is taking so long that systemd is > timing out and killing it. time -p reports real time of 133.27.
