iirc, you have permuted user and group. should be "ups nut"

I've no solaris underhand, but it would have probably been easier and better
(and more generic) to use:
# add_drv -i '"usb<VendorID>,<ProductID>.1"' -m '* 0660 nut root' ugen
# reboot -- -r

where <VendorID> and <ProductID> have to be replaced by your values.
