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 su upscmd CyberPower load.off ### wait 10s upscmd CyberPower load.on
upscmd will prompt for a username and password (
admin and the root pw.)
To reboot DBBC3KE, use the following commands
ssh observer@flexbuffke su upscmd UPS-DBBC3 load.off ### wait 10s upscmd UPS-DBBC3 load.on
The upscmd will prompt for a username and password (admin and the root pw.)
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 . If that doesn't kill the running nut command, then restart the nut server with “/etc/init.d/nut-server restart”
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 load.off or
upscmd -l CyberPower load.on
You will need to run this as root, using the admin username.
