ICIMACS for CCDS: Software Notes

8/24/99 : JAM


Disk Synchronization

Users occasionally note that they are having difficulty getting the data disks between the WC and IC to synchronize on startup (symptom: prospero reports "-Synch" in its status screen and reports errors after running startup). If full reboots are not solving the problem, you can attempt to force synchronization of the disks manually: Check the WC status screen. Near the middle of the screen is a box with disk synchronization information. If any of the machines' names are followed by the word "-SYNCH", follow the directions below.

CB -SYNCH:
Make sure that caliban is running on the sparc station, then type

>WC REQ INITDISK

in the caliban console window.

IC -SYNCH:
On the WC keyboard, type

>IC REQ INITDISK

Note: If the instructions above don't help, then it may be the case that the WC was not able to detect the IC or IR disks on startup. The only fix is to follow the CCDS startup procedure.


Region-of-Interest

There is at present no region-of-interest selection with the CCDS detector. The ROI command has no effect on readout with this instrument
