i actually was a bit surprised, since my initial impression from what i’ve read online about the subject is that the NAS would shutdown when the UPS battery registers at 10%, and it did not do this.
i took a look at upsmon.conf, and did not see a line called “MONITOR” in it, so it is not really monitoring the UPS. at the bottom of the conf, the “FINALDELAY” is set to 6000 seconds, which is the time the NUT server waits (after receiving batt low) before initiating an actual shutdown. 6000 seconds is 100 minutes ! that does not make sense.
i would take the time to modify the NUT configuration, but the filesystem is set to read only so i can’t change the conf files. actually, i would want to just reinstall NUT on the NAS and configure it from scratch, but there are other things WD might have done that weave into non NUT files that I don’t know about.
if someone has successfully modded the NUT conf and can give me some examples, I’d be willing to try it out.
otherwise i’m putting this to bed and adding another exclamation point to my notes for buying a synology multi-bay this year.
i would def. invite you to participate in the Office-Space ritual I would do on the EX2 after I replace it … ha ha
