Description Sergio Pascual 2006-08-01 13:37:43 EDT
Description of problem:
I have an APC Back-UPS 500 SC and I configured ups.conf this way:

driver = newhidups
port = auto

upsmon.conf has this line:
MONITOR apc-backups500@localhost 1 ups-obs passw master

when I start ups and upsmon starts to read, I get the following line:
Poll UPS [apc-backups500@localhost] failed - Variable not supported by UPS

Doing strace with /usr/sbin/upsd I get lines like the follwoing:

read(6, "GET VAR apc-backups500 ups.statu"..., 512) = 34
write(6, "ERR VAR-NOT-SUPPORTED\n", 22) = 221

It seems that ups is asking for ups.status and newhidups does nor provide it.
It is not in the ouput of upsc

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure the ups with newhidups
2. /sbin/service ups start
Actual results:
UPS apc-backups500@localhost is unavailable

Expected results:
upsd can speak with newhidups

Sorry but FC-5 is discontinued. If the problem remains in the recent Fedora
versions please reopen the bug.
