Hmm, I ran that exact set of commands under /bin/sh, and it worked on FreeBSD 11.1 (well, almost exactly - had to change the UPS name for my system). Be sure not to put any spaces between the characters "2>&1".

Is it possible that you are using a different shell for the root account? For csh, this might work:

/usr/local/libexec/nut/usbhid-ups -a APC_BR1500GI -DDDDD >& /tmp/APC_BR1500GI.debug.txt

but it won't show the output as it writes it to the log file.
