NUT and APC Smart UPS 750 RM USB



  • I connected a UPS to an SG-3100 but am not having luck getting it configured. It is an APC Smart UPS 750 using a USB cable. dmesg shows it:

    ugen1.2: <American Power Conversion Smart-UPS 750 FWUPS 09.3 ID18> at usbus1
    uhid0 on uhub1
    uhid0: <American Power Conversion Smart-UPS 750 FWUPS 09.3 ID18, class 0/0, rev 2.00/1.06, addr 1> on usbus1

    If I try to use the USB driver I get:
    Jun 19 16:51:22 upsmon 29314 UPS Smart_UPS_750RM is unavailable
    Jun 19 16:51:22 upsmon 29314 Poll UPS [Smart_UPS_750RM] failed - Driver not connected

    Jun 19 16:51:14 upsmon 28697 Startup successful

    Is there a specific configuration necessary? The info I find online is for the old serial cable Smart UPSs.
    Thanks,



  • Hello!

    I had a problem getting NUT to work with an APC-BE600M1 on a sg-3100. I ended up installing the apcupsd package and it worked right away.
