The reboot worked. Thank You!
Now I get:
$ sudo upsdrvctl start
[sudo] password for wsadmin:
Network UPS Tools - UPS driver controller 2.6.3
Network UPS Tools - Generic HID driver 0.35 (2.6.3)
USB communication driver 0.31
Can't chdir to /var/run/nut: No such file or directory
Driver failed to start (exit status=1)
I'm going to do:
chown root:nut /var/run/nut
chmod 770 /var/run/nut
Is this right? Are the chmod permissions correct?
