I was tweaking the UPS rules at a client’s site, when I noticed that the base NUT configuration that we use didn’t really do a hell of a lot. The example config files had some hints as to what were needed, but unless I missed something fundamental, didn’t have the full picture.
After a bit of searching, my laptop battery ran out so I couldn’t carry on working onsite. I did get far enough to make some notes, but I have since lost the site I referred to, so can’t put proper attribution. It looked something like this one though, and was also dedicated to setting up NUT on a Mac, so I figure that will do.
