thanks for the confirmation.
thanks again and maybe worthwhile to have this documented somewhere, not

the mail archive is indeed here for that.

>> Hi Spike,
>> sorry for the lag in answering, I was collecting the needed information.
>> I have a eaton 1500 that connects to an Ubuntu Xenial box via USB. The
>> UPS works, however exactly *ever 5 minutes* it disconnects and reconnects
