Can't claim USB device error

Excellent guide, the comment on permission and requiring /etc/udev/rules.d/50-ups.rules was exactly the problem installing the latest version from AUR. I would vote for Arch packaging NUT again as it is essential for all but APC compatibles UPSs that use apcupsd. David C.

Change in systemd units after update to NUT 2.8.0

This might just be an issue with my config, but it appears that after updating to 2.8.0 nut-server.service can no longer start the appropriate nut-driver by itself:

  • nut-driver.service is gone, and one must instead manually run nut-driver-enumerator.service which creates the needed nut-driver@<ups_name>.service link (wanted by the new
  • There's also nut-driver-enumerator.path which monitors /etc/nut/ups.conf and runs the service when it's changed.
  • Finally, there's a new which pulls the server and monitor services as well as the new driver target.

Needs revision

I have just installed 2.8.0 and the guidance given is no longer correct. The comment above by FeralHedgehog helped me to get it going but someone with good knowledge of systemd & NUT needs to redo the wiki page with some explanation as to what the various .service & .target files do . If I get time I might give it a go, but don't count on it! Vario (talk) 08:57, 9 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Starting on boot

I had trouble getting NUT (v2.8.0) to start on boot when enabling the units in this guide. Starting those units manually one by one did work. I disabled all of them and enabled just and nothing else, and that seems start NUT correctly when rebooting. I guess that's the way it's supposed to work now in 2.8.0(?).

The section about NUT-Monitor in the AUR should be modified or removed. NUT-Monitor is now packaged with Network UPS Tools. The nut and nut-monitor packages should also have their conflicts updated to prevent concurrent installation. Heidegger (talk) 15:55, 10 December 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

This conflict may not exist for everyone. I know that I have the git version of NUT v. 2.8.1.r249.g0ea95a760-1 and it does provide NUT-Monitor. Heidegger (talk) 16:52, 10 December 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
