Handover notes

Please use this page to write up any notes on anything that needs to be passed on to the next observer or should go into the end of experiment message.

Notes should be placed below the horizontal line as a new blog entry.

Continuing problems should be copied to the Current Issues page.

Be sure to add any specific notes about the experiment if required, for example “Special back end configuration for x reason”. Put as much detail as you can - the more the better.

  • 1730UT - Experiment started OK (Tiege).
  • 1742UT - FS has crashed, restarting has given me 'Allocating memory for antenna monitoring error'. Attempting to fix now. (Tiege)
  • 1825UT - Rebooted drive pc with: rem_reboot -r rakbus sys26m (in a newsmerd terminal), needed to do it twice as it crashed again almost instantly. everything seems to be OK now, first OK scan 344-1830b (Tiege)
  • 2130UT - Looks like post drive pc crash, receiver 3 (warm S band) has come on axis. S/X was definitely on at start of experiment, confirmed using rxp command, live page and webcam position. Warren thinks it may have something to do with Otter acting strangely currently (Tiege)
