Interesting. Sounds reasonable, but also slightly confused me. :)

How would the parameters have to be set up to shutdown outlet.1 or 2
automatically when reaching 20% battery charge then?

Something on .switch and .switchable?

As said, currently the server shuts down nicely and whenever it is off,
we want to later shutdown outlet.1.

Of course the server can just set the shutdown value for outlet.1 on
shutdown, but is that the way to go for then?

Is the "ups.status: OL CHRG" output common on MGE aswell?

Thanks for pointing it out, Patrick and Arnaud.
