Hi guys,

I just had a first real-life scenario with my build and here's the logfile. The UPS pretty much went on for another hour after the shutdown with router, TV and other stuff hooked up:
Code:
Mar 13 08:38:03 freenas upsmon[2229]: UPS ups on battery
Mar 13 09:40:38 freenas upsmon[2229]: UPS ups battery is low
Mar 13 09:40:38 freenas upsmon[2229]: Executing automatic power-fail shutdown
Mar 13 09:40:38 freenas upsmon[2229]: Auto logout and shutdown proceeding


I feel so happy. Wouldn't be possible with help from this forum. I.e. a big thank you all! :)

This is how it is done.

Buy a UPS, kids! There's no reason to have the world's most satisfying FOSS file server, and then not protect your equipment. By the way, I salute your choice of equipment. You have, I think, one of the best power supplies per dollar, and you've also maximized your bang-per-dollar for your mobo and CPU, pretty much driving right up the center of the forum expert recommendations. That UPS is a bit beefy/overkill, but, you *did* run your stuff for a good hour, so there is that ;)

Hats off to you, brother.
