I thought the Compaq R3000 Line was a Series of laptops designed and built 
by Hewlett-Packard Corporation, not a UPS?

I'm not sure of your topology, but it looks as if it would be easier to 
separate the problem into pieces.

1. The servers.  Make one of the servers the master, and all the others 
slaves.  This then becomes a well known NUT setup for master + slaves, in 
which the master begins the shutdown operation as soon as status [OB] is 
seen.  All the servers need to have upsd and upsmon running.  The server 
master does not shut down the UPS.

2. Later, based on a upssched timer, some other system "S" running upsd 
and upsmon shuts down the power segments.

3. When system "S" detects the [OB LB] status it shuts down itself and 
calls for a delayed shutdown of the UPS.

This supposes that the power outlets of the UPS have been disconnected, 
and are reconnected when wall power returns.
