As Philippe mentioned, hosts running upsmon all get the shutdown signal simultaneously. In the NUT documentation, the machine with the UPS is the master, and all of the other systems are slaves. In your case, if one of the slave VMs wedges itself, you want the master to eventually time out, and shut everything down. See 'HOSTSYNC' in upsmon.conf:


Also, if you find out any specifics on running NUT with XCP or XenServer, please let us know. We don't have much documentation on virtual environments, but it certainly is an area where NUT would fit well.
