If it is the same UPS model, then yes, it tells us that the problem is
most likely not with that model's UPS firmware.

The "manufacturer" of the USV virtual root hub includes the kernel
version, and it looks like this is a much earlier kernel than 2.6.9 as
seen on ES4. I think that there are probably a number of other
RedHat-specific kernel changes in their 2.6.9 kernel, but I don't know
why that would affect the outcome of retrieving that descriptor.
