    How do I set up Win10 as network master?

    Hi. Iíve been running a Windows 10 desktop and an APC SmartUPS successfully for some time. Iím not using the APC PowerChute SW, but instead have Win10ís own battery monitoring function set up to shut down the PC after 1 minute when the APC signals itís on battery.

    I just recently figured Iíd like to have my Qnap NAS linked up so that, once the PC sees the UPS is on battery, it tells the NAS to shut down. Iím told I have to configure Win10 as a ďnetwork masterĒ to do this, and probably use a SW utility like NUT to drive the NAS. It seems most folks do it the other way around - hook the UPS indicator to the NAS and then set it up as the network master, but as my PC runs 24/7 and is in control of everything, I was hoping to have it drive things. Anyone done something like this?

    Running version 1909.

    Welcome to the forum. I dont know were you have your information from but the master has nothing to do with it I assume your talking about master browser? MB is only used by netbios so it has no effect on nas etc

    I donít think master browser it what was being referenced. The term I was given was Ďnetwork masterí. Iím not sure I know what that is. Maybe itís terminology that makes sense when using this NUT application.
