Nut Upgrade Broke



  • Hi, Nut was working just fine unitl this last upgrade now nothing works and the GUI is missing the link also.

    Here is my 1st error I got:

    starting NUT
    Network UPS Tools upsmon 2.7.4
    fopen /var/db/nut/upsmon.pid: No such file or directory
    UPS: APC-Smart-UPS-1500 (master) (power value 1)

    Can't connect to UPS [APC-Smart-UPS-1500] (usbhid-ups-APC-Smart-UPS-1500): No such file or directory

    Here is the second error I got:

    starting NUT
    Network UPS Tools upsmon 2.7.4
    kill: No such process
    UPS: APC-Smart-UPS-1500 (master) (power value 1)

  • I got bit as well. NUT doesn't even show up in the system after the upgrade..



  • Same problem here. Config page and service missing since update.



  • I have an APC Back-Ups 1300x connected to my pfsense box. All was working well with the previous version of NUT; meaning it read my UPS and display data as advertised. When I installed the upgrade of NUT last night, it will not longer read my UPS with the following error message:

    Status Alert: The UPS requires attention

    I have tried numerous driver/UPS type possibilities with no luck. My UPS is connected via a black cable with USB on one end and an RJ-45 connector on the other; which I believe to be serial. Anyhow; some resolution would be nice.

    Incidentally, uninstalling and reinstalling NUT I receive this installation output. I am hoping this is what we are supposed to see.

    **** This port installs snmpd, header files and libraries but does not
        start snmpd by default.
        If you want to auto-start snmpd and snmptrapd:, add the following to
        /etc/rc.conf:

    snmpd_enable="YES"
    snmpd_flags="-a"
    snmpd_conffile="/usr/local/share/snmp/snmpd.conf /etc/snmpd.conf"
    snmptrapd_enable="YES"
    snmptrapd_flags="-a -p /var/run/snmptrapd.pid"

    **** You may also specify the following make variables:

    NET_SNMP_SYS_CONTACT="zi@FreeBSD.org"
    NET_SNMP_SYS_LOCATION="USA"
    DEFAULT_SNMP_VERSION=3
    NET_SNMP_MIB_MODULES="host smux mibII/mta_sendmail ucd-snmp/diskio"
    NET_SNMP_LOGFILE=/var/log/snmpd.log
    NET_SNMP_PERSISTENTDIR=/var/net-snmp

    to define default values (or to override the defaults).  To avoid being
        prompted during the configuration process, you should (minimally) define
        the first two variables. (NET_SNMP_SYS_*)

    You may also define the following to avoid all interactive configuration:

    BATCH="yes"

    Cleaning up cache... done.
    Success



  • I think, before creating new topic you need to calm down, don't panic, do not to tear one's hair and read what  people are writing about released version and you will find out what is current workaround for your problem.
