Changing UPS from asustor to ups

Changing UPS from asustor to ups

Postby drrevenge » Tue Mar 16, 2021 7:17 am

Hi All,

I just purchased a AS6510T and I have a Synology NAS as well.

I have my Cyberpower UPS connected to the AS6510T directly, and Synology has the ability to detect the UPS if NUT is configured to call the ups 'ups' not 'asustor' which it is by default.

I try modifying the ups.conf file to change the name, but when reloading the service, the AS6510T no longer detects the UPS and the Synology NAS can't see it as well. (When I run upsc asustor@IPADDRESS on the synology it returns what I would expect, but running upsc ups@IPADDRESS I get driver not loaded)

Does anyone have any suggestions on if it's possible to change the name? The only other thing I was thinking if it's not possible is to setup a raspberry pi and make that the master and make the asustor and synology slaves from that.

In the end, I could never get this to work.

I ended up getting a raspberry pi to work as the NUT server, and make both the Synology NAS and the ASUStor NAS run off the server and now that it can safely shutdown both NAS units. Just need to make sure the switch and the pi are on the UPS too. :)
