|0000552||Other Unix Port||Feature Request||public||2012-12-07 05:31||2022-05-14 16:17|
|OS||OS/2 or eCS||OS Version||various|
|Summary||0000552: NUT 2.4.3 port missing apcsmart driver|
|Description||I am currently using APC's PowerChute Plus for OS/2 version 4.2.3 and was looking for an alternative that could inter-operate with other platforms as this one is not compatible with current APC software, or any other software as far as I can tell.|
It was suggested I might consider NUT as a replacement and I was pleased to find your port of this to OS/2 and eCS. Unfortunately as it stands this is not usable to me, as it lacks the driver to talk to my APC Smart-UPS via the serial cable. Given you did this port long ago, I don't know if you could port this for the 2.4.3 release or if it would make more sense to port the current release including this driver as well.
|Tags||No tags attached.|
||Where did you find this port? I don't recall porting it, and have no such source on my hard drive.|
ok i found the .zip on google.
I don't even remember this one...
note the comment in the readme:
NOT tested as I don't have a UPS. SNMP and usb backends included
I found it on os2site via a search engine. As I have two APC SmartUPS units that connect via serial cables I was hoping that you would be able to port the apcsmart driver that is needed if I wanted to use NUT with them.
Given you no longer have the source I suspect this is not likely to occur. I have no idea how many others would find this package useful, but I suspect someone must have requested you do this port. Perhaps you could add porting the current release to your list of future ports.
As I noted in my initial note, I am at present using APC's PowerChute Plus for OS/2 with these units. It does the job, but lacks compatibility with any other software. As I am working more with linux these days I would like to be able to monitor these UPS systems from there, but as the systems being protected are those OS/2 systems I need either a package that can talk to PC+-OS/2 or a package that can take its place on the OS/2 systems.
