The NUT control software is installed at a few sites and can be used to directly control Cyberpower and UPSonic UPS.

The main use at the moment is to power cycle the DBBC3s at both Mt. Pleasant and Katherine.


To reboot DBBC3HB, use the following commands

ssh observer@weather
upscmd  CyberPower
### wait 10s
upscmd  CyberPower load.on

The upscmd will prompt for a username and password (admin and the root pw.)


To reboot DBBC3KE, use the following commands

ssh observer@flexbuffke
upscmd  UPS-DBBC3
### wait 10s
upscmd  UPS-DBBC3 load.on

If you have error messages when running these commands, try killing any NUT processes (with pkill -9 nut) and then restart with /etc/init.d/nut-server start


apt-get install nut

Then edit the /etc/nut/ files - vc0/flexbuffhb/dell2ke have templates for a working configuration

UPS interaction and control

To see the list of available commands, use

upscmd -l CyberPower

To switch the UPS off or on, use:

upscmd CyberPower or upscmd -l CyberPower load.on

You will need to run this as root, using the admin username.
