Help/advice needed with correct settings

This question was originally posted by Patrick on APC forums on 3/8/2020


Hi, 

I am new to using an UPS and would like some advice on using the correct settings to prevent trouble. 
I have an SMT3000RMI2U with an NMC. I use it to power my NAS (Synology 1517+, connected through USB), and Ubuntu server (connected using apcupsd) on the Group 1 outlet. My modem, router and smarthome controler are on the main outlet 

What I would like to achieve: 
- Gracefull shutdown of the NAS
- Gracefull shutdown of Ubuntu
- I want to make sure the NAS and Ubuntu have enough time to shutdown before the outlet turns off
- I want the Group 1 to turn off after the servers have turned off
- Shutdown of the UPC and network/smarthome to save some battery capacity when the power outage takes long (say more than 15-30 minutes), so I want Main to stay on until the 15-30 minute mark is reached 
- I want the setup to power back on after the power is restored (after 5 minutes or so to make sure the power is really back). First powering on the mains to restore the network, after that restore the power on Group 1 and sending signals to the NAS and Ubuntu to restore. 

The problem for me is that there are settings on three devices/applications (NAS, NMC and apcupsd), and I get lost in them. 
Can anyone guide or help me with some timings / settings?

Thanks a lot in advance!! 

Patrick

Hi,

What version of Ubuntu Linux are you running and what firmware revision is the NMC running?
