Hi Charles,

Not getting error re login for upsmon now.
When turning off power I am getting the following failed error.

Sep 18 10:35:24 solus upsmon[685]:*UPS defender at localhost on battery*
Sep 18 10:35:32 solus upssched[1261]:*Failed to connect to parent and failed to create parent: No such file 
or directory*
Sep 18 10:35:44 solus upsmon[685]:*UPS defender at localhost on line power*

Is this another permission issue.

upssched.conf  root:nut 640

CMDSCRIPT /usr/etc/upsShutdownNow.sh

# mandatory fields that must be set before AT commands
PIPEFN /var/run/nut/upssched.pipe
LOCKFN /var/run/nut/upssched.lock

# the timers, here 120 sec after the ONBATT (ups on battery) event

# cancel the countdown if power is back

Note I didn't have  /var/run/nut folder so created one.

> Looks like you are using this as a master system (UPS is directly connected, and upsmon shuts down that system), so the appropriate NUT user needs "upsmon master" in upsd.users.

If you add a slave system that connects over the network, you might not want it to be able to shut down the master, so you would use a different NUT username with "upsmon slave" privileges.
