APC UPS installation (original drivers)

#1

Post by onega23 » 11 Apr 2014 15:38

if you need install original driver for APC UPS:

dont use SERVICES > UPS
(disable)

1) give internet to server

2) run commands in shell >
-pkg_add -r perl
-pkg_add -r net-snmp
-pkg_add -r apcupsd

3) rename /usr/local/etc/apcupsd.conf.sample to /usr/local/etc/apcupsd.conf
edit apcupsd.conf and save

sample 1:

UPSNAME 11
UPSCABLE smart
UPSTYPE apcsmart
DEVICE /dev/ttyu0
MINUTES 1
TIMEOUT 60
WAKEUP 000
SLEEP 020

sample 2:

UPSNAME 11
UPSCABLE usb
UPSTYPE usb
### DEVICE /dev/ttyu0 ###
MINUTES 1
TIMEOUT 60
WAKEUP 000
SLEEP 020


4) use original DVD iso of freebsd 9 to get file /usr/lib/libsupc++.so.1 and copy this file, to nas4free server in /usr/lib
(for some versions need)
link to download libsupc++.so.1 file - http://gfile.ru/a7kcZ

5) add Variable apcupsd_enable value YES in SYSTEM>ADVANCE>RC.CONF

6) reboot server
7) test UPS

shell command >
usr/local/sbin/apcaccess status
sample
Image


Test power off and auto start-

1)power OFF
2)wait for auto server shutdown
3)after 3-5 sec - power ON (for UPS)
4)wait for ups auto shutdown (sleep in 1-3 min)
5)wait for ups auto start (in 1-3 min)
6)wait for server auto start (need bios setting)

Thanks in advance
files different, for x86 version nas4free - from х86 freebsd, for x64 version nas4free - from х64 freebsd
i have files /usr/lib/libsupc++.so.1 from freebsd 9.2 ,and it work for - Nas4free 9.3.0.2 - Nayla (revision 1391)
download link (yandex disk) - https://yadi.sk/d/O-YB73lxg6LSx

installation packages for "Nas4free 9.3.0.2 - Nayla (revision 1391)"

shell:

(downloading packages to /var/cache/pkg)

Installation original APC drivers on Nas4Free version 10

!if using APC drivers, SERVICES > UPS must be disabled

1) nas4free must have access to Internet
2) run shell (local command line) and input commands:
2.1) pkg install perl5 (and press key "Y")
2.2) pkg install net-snmp (and press key "Y")
2.3) pkg install apcupsd (and press key "Y")
3) add Variable apcupsd_enable value YES in SYSTEM>ADVANCE>RC.CONF
4) configure file /usr/local/etc/apcupsd/apcupsd.conf for you nas4free and APC-UPS

config example:

[spoiler]
## apcupsd.conf v1.1 ##
#
# for apcupsd release 3.14.13 (02 February 2015) - freebsd
#
# "apcupsd" POSIX config file

#
# Note that the apcupsd daemon must be restarted in order for changes to
# this configuration file to become active.
#

#
# ========= General configuration parameters ============
#

# UPSNAME xxx
# Use this to give your UPS a name in log files and such. This
# is particulary useful if you have multiple UPSes. This does not
# set the EEPROM. It should be 8 characters or less.
UPSNAME Smart620

# UPSCABLE <cable>
# Defines the type of cable connecting the UPS to your computer.
#
# Possible generic choices for <cable> are:
# simple, smart, ether, usb
#
# Or a specific cable model number may be used:
# 940-0119A, 940-0127A, 940-0128A, 940-0020B,
# 940-0020C, 940-0023A, 940-0024B, 940-0024C,
# 940-1524C, 940-0024G, 940-0095A, 940-0095B,
# 940-0095C, 940-0625A, M-04-02-2000
#
UPSCABLE smart

# To get apcupsd to work, in addition to defining the cable
# above, you must also define a UPSTYPE, which corresponds to
# the type of UPS you have (see the Description for more details).
# You must also specify a DEVICE, sometimes referred to as a port.
# For USB UPSes, please leave the DEVICE directive blank. For
# other UPS types, you must specify an appropriate port or address.
#
# UPSTYPE DEVICE Description
# apcsmart /dev/tty** Newer serial character device, appropriate for
# SmartUPS models using a serial cable (not USB).
#
# usb <BLANK> Most new UPSes are USB. A blank DEVICE
# setting enables autodetection, which is
# the best choice for most installations.
#
# net hostname:port Network link to a master apcupsd through apcupsd's
# Network Information Server. This is used if the
# UPS powering your computer is connected to a
# different computer for monitoring.
#
# snmp hostname:port:vendor:community
# SNMP network link to an SNMP-enabled UPS device.
# Hostname is the ip address or hostname of the UPS
# on the network. Vendor can be can be "APC" or
# "APC_NOTRAP". "APC_NOTRAP" will disable SNMP trap
# catching; you usually want "APC". Port is usually
# 161. Community is usually "private".
#
# netsnmp hostname:port:vendor:community
# OBSOLETE
# Same as SNMP above but requires use of the
# net-snmp library. Unless you have a specific need
# for this old driver, you should use 'snmp' instead.
#
# dumb /dev/tty** Old serial character device for use with
# simple-signaling UPSes.
#
# pcnet ipaddr:username:passphrase:port
# PowerChute Network Shutdown protocol which can be
# used as an alternative to SNMP with the AP9617
# family of smart slot cards. ipaddr is the IP
# address of the UPS management card. username and
# passphrase are the credentials for which the card
# has been configured. port is the port number on
# which to listen for messages from the UPS, normally
# 3052. If this parameter is empty or missing, the
# default of 3052 will be used.
#
# modbus /dev/tty** Serial device for use with newest SmartUPS models
# supporting the MODBUS protocol.
# modbus <BLANK> Leave the DEVICE setting blank for MODBUS over USB
# or set to the serial number of the UPS to ensure
# that apcupsd binds to that particular unit
# (helpful if you have more than one USB UPS).
#
UPSTYPE apcsmart
DEVICE /dev/ttyu0

# POLLTIME <int>
# Interval (in seconds) at which apcupsd polls the UPS for status. This
# setting applies both to directly-attached UPSes (UPSTYPE apcsmart, usb,
# dumb) and networked UPSes (UPSTYPE net, snmp). Lowering this setting
# will improve apcupsd's responsiveness to certain events at the cost of
# higher CPU utilization. The default of 60 is appropriate for most
# situations.
#POLLTIME 60

# LOCKFILE <path to lockfile>
# Path for device lock file. This is the directory into which the lock file
# will be written. The directory must already exist; apcupsd will not create
# it. The actual name of the lock file is computed from DEVICE.
# Not used on Win32.
LOCKFILE /var/spool/lock

# SCRIPTDIR <path to script directory>
# Directory in which apccontrol and event scripts are located.
SCRIPTDIR /usr/local/etc/apcupsd

# PWRFAILDIR <path to powerfail directory>
# Directory in which to write the powerfail flag file. This file
# is created when apcupsd initiates a system shutdown and is
# checked in the OS halt scripts to determine if a killpower
# (turning off UPS output power) is required.
PWRFAILDIR /var/run

# NOLOGINDIR <path to nologin directory>
# Directory in which to write the nologin file. The existence
# of this flag file tells the OS to disallow new logins.
NOLOGINDIR /var/run


#
# ======== Configuration parameters used during power failures ==========
#

# The ONBATTERYDELAY is the time in seconds from when a power failure
# is detected until we react to it with an onbattery event.
#
# This means that, apccontrol will be called with the powerout argument
# immediately when a power failure is detected. However, the
# onbattery argument is passed to apccontrol only after the
# ONBATTERYDELAY time. If you don't want to be annoyed by short
# powerfailures, make sure that apccontrol powerout does nothing
# i.e. comment out the wall.
ONBATTERYDELAY 1

#
# Note: BATTERYLEVEL, MINUTES, and TIMEOUT work in conjunction, so
# the first that occurs will cause the initation of a shutdown.
#

# If during a power failure, the remaining battery percentage
# (as reported by the UPS) is below or equal to BATTERYLEVEL,
# apcupsd will initiate a system shutdown.
BATTERYLEVEL 5

# If during a power failure, the remaining runtime in minutes
# (as calculated internally by the UPS) is below or equal to MINUTES,
# apcupsd, will initiate a system shutdown.
MINUTES 1

# If during a power failure, the UPS has run on batteries for TIMEOUT
# many seconds or longer, apcupsd will initiate a system shutdown.
# A value of 0 disables this timer.
#
# Note, if you have a Smart UPS, you will most likely want to disable
# this timer by setting it to zero. That way, you UPS will continue
# on batteries until either the % charge remaing drops to or below BATTERYLEVEL,
# or the remaining battery runtime drops to or below MINUTES. Of course,
# if you are testing, setting this to 60 causes a quick system shutdown
# if you pull the power plug.
# If you have an older dumb UPS, you will want to set this to less than
# the time you know you can run on batteries.
TIMEOUT 30

# Time in seconds between annoying users to signoff prior to
# system shutdown. 0 disables.
ANNOY 0

# Initial delay after power failure before warning users to get
# off the system.
ANNOYDELAY 0

# The condition which determines when users are prevented from
# logging in during a power failure.
# NOLOGON <string> [ disable | timeout | percent | minutes | always ]
NOLOGON disable

# If KILLDELAY is non-zero, apcupsd will continue running after a
# shutdown has been requested, and after the specified time in
# seconds attempt to kill the power. This is for use on systems
# where apcupsd cannot regain control after a shutdown.
# KILLDELAY <seconds> 0 disables
KILLDELAY 0

#
# ==== Configuration statements for Network Information Server ====
#

# NETSERVER [ on | off ] on enables, off disables the network
# information server. If netstatus is on, a network information
# server process will be started for serving the STATUS and
# EVENT data over the network (used by CGI programs).
NETSERVER on

# NISIP <dotted notation ip address>
# IP address on which NIS server will listen for incoming connections.
# This is useful if your server is multi-homed (has more than one
# network interface and IP address). Default value is 0.0.0.0 which
# means any incoming request will be serviced. Alternatively, you can
# configure this setting to any specific IP address of your server and
# NIS will listen for connections only on that interface. Use the
# loopback address (127.0.0.1) to accept connections only from the
# local machine.
NISIP 0.0.0.0

# NISPORT <port> default is 3551 as registered with the IANA
# port to use for sending STATUS and EVENTS data over the network.
# It is not used unless NETSERVER is on. If you change this port,
# you will need to change the corresponding value in the cgi directory
# and rebuild the cgi programs.
NISPORT 3551

# If you want the last few EVENTS to be available over the network
# by the network information server, you must define an EVENTSFILE.
EVENTSFILE /var/log/apcupsd.events

# EVENTSFILEMAX <kilobytes>
# By default, the size of the EVENTSFILE will be not be allowed to exceed
# 10 kilobytes. When the file grows beyond this limit, older EVENTS will
# be removed from the beginning of the file (first in first out). The
# parameter EVENTSFILEMAX can be set to a different kilobyte value, or set
# to zero to allow the EVENTSFILE to grow without limit.
EVENTSFILEMAX 10

#
# ========== Configuration statements used if sharing =============
# a UPS with more than one machine

#
# Remaining items are for ShareUPS (APC expansion card) ONLY
#

# UPSCLASS [ standalone | shareslave | sharemaster ]
# Normally standalone unless you share an UPS using an APC ShareUPS
# card.
UPSCLASS standalone

# UPSMODE [ disable | share ]
# Normally disable unless you share an UPS using an APC ShareUPS card.
UPSMODE disable

#
# ===== Configuration statements to control apcupsd system logging ========
#

# Time interval in seconds between writing the STATUS file; 0 disables
STATTIME 0

# Location of STATUS file (written to only if STATTIME is non-zero)
STATFILE /var/log/apcupsd.status

# LOGSTATS [ on | off ] on enables, off disables
# Note! This generates a lot of output, so if
# you turn this on, be sure that the
# file defined in syslog.conf for LOG_NOTICE is a named pipe.
# You probably do not want this on.
LOGSTATS off

# Time interval in seconds between writing the DATA records to
# the log file. 0 disables.
DATATIME 0

# FACILITY defines the logging facility (class) for logging to syslog.
# If not specified, it defaults to "daemon". This is useful
# if you want to separate the data logged by apcupsd from other
# programs.
#FACILITY DAEMON

#
# ========== Configuration statements used in updating the UPS EPROM =========
#

#
# These statements are used only by apctest when choosing "Set EEPROM with conf
# file values" from the EEPROM menu. THESE STATEMENTS HAVE NO EFFECT ON APCUPSD.
#

# UPS name, max 8 characters
#UPSNAME UPS_IDEN

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

After power fail, nas4free must be shutdown after 30 sec ( TIMEOUT 30 ), then UPS must be shotdown also in 3-5 min (sleep mode). UPS must be shotdown automatically, even if electricity has been restored (in the process of shotdown Nas4free). After UPS restore power, immediately if the power is already there, or when power is restored.

If UPS work fine (auto turn off, sleep mode, auto start),
set APM Configuration settings in BIOS od Motherboard, for computer auto-start.
Bios setting example: Restore on AC Power Less = Power ON

Thank you.
Just to know better: which is the difference between SERVICES kind of drivers and this one you posted?
The ones in NAS4Free are generic and these are APC specific?
Any APC device can be used or is there a compatibility list somewhere?

Thanks

When use SERVICE>UPS, "Sleep mode" not working, and no information for "Auxiliary parameters" to fix problem.
No 100% autostart of nas4free computer (if Bios setting have "Power Less = Power ON)

after nas4free shutdown UPS must be shutdowned also (become sleep mode), and server must auto start (need bios settings) after UPS awake.
UPS must be shutdowned after server, even if the electricity was restored in 5 seconds after stopping Nas4free (or in the process of stopping Nas4free). Im test many APC UPS models and Nas4free versions with "SERVICE>UPS" options, and "Sleep mode" not working.

another difference:
if use "SERVICE>UPS" after nas5free shutdown - computer "turn off"
if use original APC drivers , afrer nas4free shutdown - computer work and system "halted" (is better for some server-motherboards, and some BIOS "Power ON" optoions). Some computers will not "auto turn on" if the shutdown was planned and correct. (even if the BIOS are used "Power ON" options, after AC power loss)
TeoLinuX wrote: The ones in NAS4Free are generic and these are APC specific?
yes, generic, auto shutdown computer work fine.
TeoLinuX wrote: Any APC device can be used or is there a compatibility list somewhere?
no have information , bur APC driver very universal (2004 year UPS model and 2016 year UPS model, use the same driver)

used models, all work (different versions freenas\nas4free, different versions of APC drivers):

Back UPS RS 800 (usb)
Back UPS CS 500 (usb)
Smart UPS CS 420 (usb)
Smart UPS 620 (Very old model, APC 940-0024E cable)
Smart SC-1000 (apc "serial" cable with COM to USB adaprer, APC 940-0024E cable)
Smart SC-1500 (apc "serial" cable with COM to USB adaprer, APC 940-0024E cable)
APC Back-UPS BX1400UI (2016 year model)

-some problems with "sleep mode"
-(rare problem) after nas4free server shutdown, some UPS contine work (no turn off, no server start if power fast restored, no server autostart), the solution to the problem - change version of nas4free or change model of UPS
-some old UPS models have "much delayed sleep mode" in 3-4 min (normal 30-60 sec) afrer nas4free shutdown, solution - use good battery.
No other problems.

------------

apcupsd.conf examples for some APC UPS:

config part for USB APC UPS:

UPSCABLE usb
UPSTYPE usb
# DEVICE (disabled options)

config part for smart UPS:

UPSCABLE smart
UPSTYPE apcsmart
DEVICE /dev/ttyU0
(after connect UPS, find new ".locked" file in /dev folder , is you UPS , example /dev/ttyU0.lock , config options "DEVICE /dev/ttyU0" )
