Margherita wants COT turned on for her Database work. Because there is a HV problem in COT it will not be running iFIX until the problem is solved.
Muon system was down while the broken port IO card was being replaced.
There are 2 pc's for TOF system. One in the counting room and the other at the 3rd floor. The one in the counting room is without an iFIX key. After discussion and Mark's recommendation we decided to remove the one at 3rd floor from network. The MCS policy is not to have multiple pc's for a system, which could cause complication during operation and it increases total number of pc's to maintain.
Daniele said his program allows shift crews to set HV values in addtion to the usual 'on', 'off' and 'stanby' buttons in the control room. The idea behind is that it would be safer than shift crews working from the local pc to set HV values or turn off a few channels etc. We need to come up with a policy for this.
Mark said all the pc's are in 100 Mb network and the FNAL domain now. You need a new password get into WindowNT for all the pc's in the network. A new file server is installed to back up the server at the 3rd floor. It will pick up immidiately when the server goes down.
Bill's proposal on Picture saving etc.:
Mark Knapp and I discussed the issue of developing pictures this morning. At the meeting yesterday I stated that pictures should be created and edited on the server so that everyone gets the latest pictures instantly. However, after discussing this issue I agree that for the safety of YOUR work you should follow the following guidelines.
1. Create and/or edit your pictures saving them in a folder YOU create for
this purpose on your local machine.
2. After you are satisfied that you have a completed picture and it is ready for distribution make a copy on the server. cdf-fs1\wdmacs\pic\cdfmcs\etc. (use the "save as" feature to eliminate any doubt about where your file is)
3. Quick or simple edits to any picture can be done on the server. Again use the "save as" to be sure it saves where you want it to.
We do plan to keep the pictures synchronized between the server(s) and local machines on a weekly basis. We will send email when we have this plan in place.
The four (4) machines in the Cryo control room on the first floor are SCADA nodes and are operating support systems. CDF-S1 is handling the flammable gas and cryogenic systems. CDF-S2 has the HVAC and water systems. CDF-S3 has rack protection and miscellaneous duties. CDF-S4 takes care of the solenoid interlocks etc and is standalone. Please cooperate with us on this issue. We ask that you not use those machines for development work.
Bill also pointed out that we should be very careful not to edit the SCU(System Configuration Utility) file of the server.
