NUT snmp-ups failed to start
I'm trying to configure NUT on the latest pfsense version with a SNMP UPS (APC SRT 8000)
The service refuses to start :
[2.3-RELEASE][root@pfSense-vdmz1.fft]/usr/local/pkg: /usr/local/etc/rc.d/nut.sh start
Network UPS Tools - UPS driver controller 2.7.3
Error: no UPS definitions found in ups.conf
snmp-ups failed to start
However the config seems to be generated :
[2.3-RELEASE][root@pfSense-vdmz1.fft]/usr/local/pkg: cat /usr/local/etc/nut/ups.conf
[APC SRT 8000]
Someone has any idea ?
Thank you for advance,
same behaviour here… :-\
Monitoring a local USB attached ups is working fine.
as you see same error messages:
starting snmp-ups Network UPS Tools - UPS driver controller 2.7.4 Error: no UPS definitions found in ups.conf snmp-ups failed to start
user=root [SNMP-UPS] driver=snmp-ups port=192.168.0.43 mibs=ietf snmp_version=v2c

The first one is easy: the ups name cannot have spaces in it, so "APC SRT 8000" is an invalid ups name and will be ignored.
The second one not so much. "SNMP-UPS" is a valid ups name. I tested the ups.conf posted against NUT 2.7.4 and do not receive the "no UPS definitions found in ups.conf" error.
