 upsd + Leadman UPS
Author: paz 
Date:   19-05-00 22:47

Been trying to get upsd working on a FreeBSD 3.4 system. I loaded upsd using pkg_add, changed the permissions for the scripts so they should've run properly, but the system froze up at boot. I had to go to single user and make the scripts non-executable to get the system to boot again.

Dell P-166
Leadmon (425kVA?) UPS
DB9-DB9 cable between COM1 and UPS (no mods yet!)
System mouse is a PS/2 model plugged into the PS/2 mouse receptacle.

Thanks ---

Does upsd run OK after boot up? If so, rename the script to something like Script in /usr/local/etc/rc.d/ are executed in alphabetical order. so do an ls -l and make sure the script appears last.

Be careful you have the correct cable connecting the UPS.

If its like the APC Smart UPS's you *cannot* use a straight
through 9 pin cable. You must either buy the right cable,
or custom build one. Using the wrong cable
could lock up your system.

Maybe your ups is not compatible with upsd (look in /var/log/messages) for more info

It didnt work for my ups either (upgurads) so i had to write my own program
