No, it isn't. We only use the (old) 'V' command if the (new) 'b' command
fails. Apparently, your UPS already replied to the latter, so we would
never see the reply to the 'V' command anyway and what is reported is the
answer we got for the 'b' command.

The format of the reply to the 'b' command is totally different. See the
link I posted earlier.

Usually the difference between standalone or rackmount (from the NUT point
of view at least) is irrelevant.
