I have a FreeBSD 9.2 system with NUT 2.6.5 (installed via the ports tree) with an MGE Pulsar 1500 connected. A while ago it complained it needed the battery replaced and it was finally replaced last week, however I can't find out how to reset the flag in NUT.

I've looked in upsc, upsrw and upscmd but none seem to have a suitable option.

The UPS is connected via RS232 and upsc output is as follows..

Any hints?
