we have a Emerson Liebert GXT4, that we like to connect to our servers
to shut them down if there is a power failure (which happens quite often
in our area).

I couldn't get the GXT4 working with usbhid-ups driver. So I need some
advise to continue to get this device working. The GXT3 seems to be
working ok with NUT (http://networkupstools.org/ddl/Liebert/GXT3.html).

Here is my ups.conf

	driver = usbhid-ups
	port =  usb-0000:00:1d.0-1.2/input0
	desc = "Emerson Liebert GXT 4"

My system is running Ubuntu 16.04 with nut version 2.7.2-4ubuntu1.

This is what dmesg says:

[26530.061874] usb 2-1.2: new full-speed USB device number 11 using ehci-pci
[26530.156677] usb 2-1.2: New USB device found, idVendor=10af,
[26530.156684] usb 2-1.2: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2,
[26530.156689] usb 2-1.2: Product: Liebert GXT4
[26530.156693] usb 2-1.2: Manufacturer: Emerson Network Power
[26530.156696] usb 2-1.2: SerialNumber: 1607000058AFC23
[26530.174243] hid-generic 0003:10AF:0000.0008: hiddev0,hidraw2: USB HID
v1.00 Device [Emerson Network Power Liebert GXT4]

When I want to start the driver with "upsdrvctl start" it outputs:

Network UPS Tools - UPS driver controller 2.7.2
Network UPS Tools - Generic HID driver 0.38 (2.7.2)
USB communication driver 0.32
This Liebert device (10af:0000) is not (or perhaps not yet) supported
by usbhid-ups. Please make sure you have an up-to-date version of NUT. If
this does not fix the problem, try running the driver with the
'-x productid=0000' option. Please report your results to the NUT user's
mailing list <nut-upsuser at lists.alioth.debian.org>.

I've attachted the output of the following commands.
* lsusb -v
* /lib/nut/usbhid-ups -DDDD -x productid=0000 -a ups

What can I do to get this UPS working?

Best Regards,
