Novell 5.1 server shutting down

I am working on a Novell 5.1 server that it shutting down over night.  The problem started after replacing an old UPS with a new one.  We hooked up the management cable to the UPS but when the server started shutting down we disconnected it.  Even after the UPS's management cable was disconnected, it would still shutdown at night.  I looked and I didn't see any UPS management software running on the server, but I haven't worked in a Novell environment in a few years.  Is there any sort of log files that I could look at on the Novell server to see why it was shutting down?

Thanks,

Post the autoexec.ncf.  On your workstation go to Volume SYS in the subdirectory SYSTEM and find the file autoexec.ncf. Open it up in a text editor and then cut and paste it here.  This is where the NLM's are loaded.  To create a log file once your server is up at the console prompt type   LOAD CONLOG    When you come in the next morning and have to restart the server you can look in the volume SYS   and either the root directory of SYS or in SYS:SYSTEM or in SYS:ETC  Can't remember right off.  In one of those places you will find a file called console.log  Do not add LOAD CONLOG to your autoexec.ncf or the next time it activates it will erase the previous.

Thanks for the quick responce.  I think the UPS is bad, or just not large enough to run the server at peak times.  Thanks for the logging info.
