i have an apc smt750i with 3 debian computers connected to it. i want 
one of them act as a master to notify the other two in case the battery 
is about to exhaust.

upsmon in the slaves gets notified when the system changes from main to 
battery and viceversa. the problem i have is that the slaves are not 
notified and shutdown because of losing the connection to the master, 
but not for being notified to shutdown as i expect.

i'm using debian packages. i've tried two scenarios, one with the three 
machines using debian wheezy (nut 2.6.4) and another one with tree 
debian jessie machines (nut 2.7.2). in both cases i get the same log 
error when i force a shutdown with the command 'upsmon -c fsd':
