WORK IN PROGRESS
- First edit the /etc/ups/ups.conf file by appending the battery info. You can find this information by running nut-scanner
[root@dronetest ~]# nut-scanner -U Cannot load XML library (libneon.so.27) : file not found. XML search disabled. Scanning USB bus. [nutdev1] driver = "usbhid-ups" port = "auto" vendorid = "0764" productid = "0601" product = "OR1500PFCLCD" serial = "GXIFS2000130" vendor = "CPS" bus = "001"
- With the information above, append the following to /etc/ups/ups.conf
[nutdev1] driver = usbhid-ups port = auto
- For basic email alerting, create the following script and associated cronjob.
NOTE : This is a work in progress. This script would send you a ton of emails and is not smart enough to everything it needs to.
#!/bin/bash branch='location name' nutdevcount='1' nutdevlist='nutdev1' firstname.lastname@example.org' for i in $nutdevlist; do upsstatus=$(upsc $i@localhost ups.status) upsload=$(upsc $i@localhost ups.load) [ ! -z $upsstatus ] && [ ! -z $upsload ] && if [ "$upsstatus" = "OL" ]; then echo "Battery Online" > /dev/null elif [ "$upsstatus" == "OB DISCHRG" ]; then echo -e "Subject:$branch UPS has lost AC Power" | /usr/sbin/sendmail "$support" elif [ "$upsstatus" = "OL CHRG" ]; then echo "Charging" > /dev/null else echo "Status Unknown" > /dev/null fi if [ "$upsload" -ge "70" ] then echo -e "Subject:$branch UPS Load=$upsload" | /usr/sbin/sendmail "$support" fi done
Start NUT service Layers
systemctl enable --now nut-server
Old Startup Type
The following was used before I ran across the systemd unit files that came with the package. The other issue is that I am now getting the following error that makes this setup no longer usable in it's current state.
[/etc/systemd/system/nutstart.service:6] Failed to parse service type, ignoring: Simple
Have the following shell script in place
#!/bin/bash sudo usbhid-ups -uroot -a nutdev1 sudo upsd -uroot
Then create the systemd unit file /etc/systemd/system/nutstart.service with the following
[Unit] Description=Start NUT services After=network.target [Service] Type=Simple ExecStart=/root/nutstart.sh [Install] WantedBy=default.target
Then enable the service
