The short term solution is to pull the cable from the UPS to the 270. Of course this way if there is a real power outage you run until those weak old batteries area actually dead and then 'thud'.
Better would be a program handing the power rather than IBMs build in code. This way you can do whatever you want. Set a message queue other than QSYSOPR (something like QUPSMSGQ for example) .and then set a break handling program on queue. The program then does what YOU want it to do.
Best of course is new batteries. But you knew that. :-)

It is set for 300 on this 270. I *think* that means that it should wait for 5 minutes before beginning the shutdown but it appears that when it detects a "weak battery condition" then it ignores the value and just shuts down on its own.

What's your System Value QUPSDLYTIM set to?
It should _NEVER_ be on *CALC with "normal" Systems. I usually have set
it to 300.
*CALC is only used for Systems with an internal UPS. Those no longer
exist. And the 270 didn't have an internal UPS.
