Hi Gary,

You're probably looking for /etc/init.d/halt.  You'd want to call
'upsdrvctl shutdown' just before the final halt but after any mounted
filesystems have been remounted read-only.  My Fedora Core 3 system has
the following nut shutdown code after the remount and display of
reboot/halt/fsck forced message but before /sbin/halt.local gets

------ sample /etc/init.d/halt NUT shutdown code -----

if [ "$command" = /sbin/halt -a -r /etc/ups/upsmon.conf -a \
    -f /etc/killpower -a -f /etc/sysconfig/ups ] ; then
        . /etc/sysconfig/ups
        if [ "$SERVER" = "yes" -a "$MODEL" = "upsdrvctl" ] ; then
                /sbin/upsdrvctl shutdown
        elif [ "$SERVER" = "yes" -a "$MODEL" != "NONE" -a \
              -n "$MODEL" -a -n "$DEVICE" ] ; then
                $MODEL $OPTIONS_HALT -k $DEVICE

----- end sample -----

Either ensure that there are no spaces after the \ characters at the
end of the 2 lines above or remove them and join the lines their on
with the line immediately following.  Hope this helps.
