Unhappy APC Smart-UPS 700 SU700RM2U software

Hello,

I cant find valide information on the driver information for this product. Linux has multiple tools to monitor and setup UPS. I am presently trying to get NUT setup for this. how ever I can't seem to get it to work.

These are the step I took. http://networking.engadget.com/2006/...work-your-ups/

Here are the drivers I used. genericups and apcsmart.

I was also looking to install this how ever it does not seem to be compatible. apcupsd-3.12.4.

When I try this command I get this.

admin@Poweredge:~$ upsdrvctl start
Network UPS Tools - UPS driver controller 2.0.3
Network UPS Tools - Generic UPS driver 1.31 (2.0.3)
Can't chdir to /var/run/nut: Permission denied
Driver failed to start (exit status=1)
admin@Poweredge:~$


In my VAR file I dont even have these folders. /var/run/nut

Any one any ideas. Thank you

Create it like this:
Code:
mkdir /var/run/nut
You might have to change its permissions/ownership afterwards.
