Hi Charles.

Debug output attached.  As you suspected, this is a fairly large 3-phase UPS running a range of live kit, so removing the supply is not an option.

Hi Chris,

Is this the patch you are referring to?

Please send the debug output from starting the snmp-ups driver directly (rather than through upsdrvctl). That should explain why the driver is getting those particular status bits. Bonus points if you can show the output for both online as well as on-battery conditions, although I recognize that can be difficult if the UPS is in production use.
