[Nut-upsuser] HP/Compaq Rackmount UPS Support? [SOLVED]

Hi Denny.

Nice, i have entered the HP R5500 XR to the drivers.list
in the Testing and Development tree.

Some info for you when you setup the nut. The shutdown_delay
of the driver is internal to the ups.
It calculate the time it can run after low-battery with the
load. So when it comes to OB LB it starts the shutdown_delay and power 
off after it runs out.

This is the normal way, as you would like the ups to wait as long
as possible to get the line power back.

When it hit OB LB it issue a shutdown -h now to take the machine down,
and you have 'shutdown_delay' time to take it down. Most powerware
ups'es gives about 120 sec. And that should be ok to take it down.

If you have raid arrays to handle you may need longer times.
If you set it to high, you get a warning that the delay is longer than 
remaining power.

But if you want to do a premature shutdown you have to issue a
'upsmon -c fsd' and in the halt script do a 'upsdrvctl shutdown'
to power off the ups.

Read the shutdown.txt in the nut/docs/.
