That is odd. The development version of NAS4Free seems to be regenerating the entire upsd.users file:


To address your original concern (adding remote users for monitoring), I would edit the RC file, which is probably /usr/local/etc/rc.d/nut, to include something like this at the end of the nut_mkconf() function:

cat <<__EOF__ >> ${nut_upsd_users}
                password = abcd
                upsmon slave

(Be sure to add it after the line containing "... > ${nut_upsd_users}")

Of course, this will be lost when you upgrade NAS4Free, but maybe you can convince one of the developers to add this as a core feature, such that the list of slave users can be read from the XML configuration file.
