ups problems


hey,

i have installed a ups on a pc running redhat 9 and the apc daemon. the problem is that when the pc boots it gets to where you would normally login, at this point it declares that it is running on batteries and shuts-down! it isn't running on batteries. i cant login and therefore disable it.

any ideas would be great!

unplug the UPS and restart to make the changes you want to.

Great to hear you got it solved.

Why don't you post what you did to this thread so that the next person who has the same problem can get a head-start with your advice
