System is being shut down in approximately 2 minute(s).

System shut down has been canceled. (Power Fail)
How can I, from a script in another process, figure out that the shutdown was started and then cancelled? I can't find any log file that records that a shutdown was ever started.
The HPPM log files are binary, not easily deciphered.

When I said the HPPM log is "not easily deciphered" that means "no text" - nothing for strings to show.

tail -f /var/adm/syslog/syslog.log
You will see shutdown data there.
Connect to the console, you will see ongoing data to that device.

I'd still be interested to know of any way to capture broadcast messages to a file.
