That is correct.  You must allocate the ups message queue specified in the
systems value QUPSMSGQ.  Do not lock it, here is a small ups monitor that I
use to keep a remote site from draining the UPS.

Not much to it but works for us.

Also, it memory serves me correctly and you setup a message queue for UPS
monitoring and that queue is not LOCKED, that can cause the system to
shutdown when
a message about UPS dropping off is received...

Anyone else recall this ?

Of course, Dean, you would be able to find these messages in QHST also...
