I stopped nut, I kill mge-utalk process

and I have this

My server with another UPS (MGE Pulsar Evolution2200 USB) is OK.

All scripts work

Is it possible to work with a UPS MGE CometExtrem 6 on serial port


Which driver can I use ?

I tried with mge-shut ou mge-utalk without any success

as per NUT HCL, Comet Extreme use the UTalk protocol.
so mge-utalk is the driver you're looking for.

when I start driver with upsdrvctl with mge-utalk

I have (after a long time)

Can't connect to UPS [MGE_cometEX] (mge-utalk-MGE_cometEX): No such file or



Network UPS Tools - UPS driver controller 2.4.3
Network UPS Tools - MGE UPS SYSTEMS/U-Talk driver 0.89 (2.4.3)
/dev/ttyS0 is locked by another process
Driver failed to start (exit status=1)
the above message shows that the mge-utalk driver can't start since there is
another driver locking the port.
so, first, stop everything, and issue a "killall mge-shut mge-utalk"
then start NUT as usual.
if something really goes wrong, stop everything and then try starting
mge-utalk in debug mode, to see if there is actually a problem, using:
$ /path/to/mge-utalk -DDD -a MGE_cometEX

Let it run for 30 seconds, and send us the output.
