apcupsd prevents users for loging in after a power failure
Last modified: 2013-09-16 13:45:19 EDT
Description of problem:
I am using apcupsd from Fedora EPEL on CentOS 6.4. The UPS is APC BackUPS ES 550 connected via USB cable.
After a power failure (after battery goes out), users are prevented for logging in via SSH when power is restored (the system restarts automatically, via BIOS); message is "POWER FAILURE". This is probably because the existence of /etc/nologin
A possible explanation is here http://comments.gmane.org/gmane.comp.sysutils.apcupsd.user/9304
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Have not tried.
After a power failure (after battery goes out), users are prevented for logging in via SSH when power is restored (the system restarts automatically, via BIOS).
Users should be allowed to log in.
this is probably caused by fix for bug #788707
I'll look at it
new behavior: apcupsd will remove nologin file on startup if this file contains 'POWER FAILURE' (apcupsd puts it there)
