APC PowerChute

[sol8, apc powerchute ent. edition]
got a problem with my ups after replacing the batterie..
there is no connection to the ups. when i plug this ups into a windows - laptop i can speak to it, but in solaris not. there are no messages in powerchute.err and the deamon upsd is running. restarting the deamon doesn't change anything. solving the problem i 've seen that there is no entry in the powerchute.ini, where the hardwarepath should be. i think that that is the problem.
anyone knows how to reconfigure these setting?
thx a lot
greetings Preßy

I found one link at docs.sun.com, but this may be way off; I'm not sure:

Appendix A - Installing and Configuring an Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS)

thx for the quick answere... i also found that docu on docs.sun.com but this explains how to integrate the ups into the RSC-Card/Program there is no readme about powerchute on docs.sun neither on sunsolve... ;-(
waiting for other good ideas ;-)

pressy i use powerchute plus for sol8.

are you useing smart signaling or dumb signaling?

if you dont have any comm going on check the port listed in powerchute.ini.


[ Ups ]
 SignallingType = Simple
 PortName = /dev/ttya
 AutoUpsRebootEnabled = Yes
 AllowedPortNames = /dev/ttya,/dev/ttyb

[ Ups ]
 SignallingType = Smart
 PortName = /dev/ttyb
 AutoUpsRebootEnabled = No
 AllowedPortNames = /dev/ttya,/dev/ttyb

And if I remember correctly, if the server only has one port, it is shared as A and B and you need a special cable from Powerchute to make it work on either A or B (your serial ports).
