View Full Version : APC XS1500 UPS Fedora 13
11th July 2010, 04:01 AM
I have a fedora file server in my studio. We have some issues with the power going out and brown outs. I recently bought a APC XS 1500 UPS. I can see the UPS in gnome but the machine runs at runlevel 3 usually. I was wondering if I set the settings in gnome and drop down to init 3 would the settings still stay? Is there a config file somewhere I can set these setttings in the command line?

I have the high end APC Smart-ups SUA1500, both it and your APC use a USB port to talk to the unit.
With mine I'm using the packages:
But really all you'd need is the first one (apcupsd) for runlevel 3 to be covered, the gui package gives you a nice
GUI tool to monitor the UPS and it even has a icon for the task bar so you can see what the UPS is doing.
the cgi one is for having a web interface if you have apache running.
Just install apcupsd package and use chkconfig or system-config-services to turn on the apcupsd service
after configuring the /etc/apcupsd/apcupsd.conf file
In my .conf file I set it to:
and all the rest I left defaulted as what the file came with, it seems to call various scripts
which do the proper things like do a graceful power down when a reasonable time elapses
during an outage or the battery goes below a certain percentage of remaining power.
That "DEVICE" option should be left as is (no second part), the comment in the conf file says
to so that's what I did.
