General Issues:

  • New dbbc3 arrived for Hobart, installed as replacement for old dbbc - same name, in process of updating procedure files. Appears more reliable and stable. Will start vgos observing soonish.



  • 1800 UT had to get schedule from ivs schedules page (warren)
  • 1810 UT reboot mk5, looks like DIMino had started on top of jive5ab crashed mk5, fmset (warren)


  • General: There looked like an issue with slogit from opar, changed back to bkg. Drudging problem with Yg, Prc file needs to be moved to /usr2/proc/ manually from /usr2/sched/. No checkmk5 section for AUM041, added manually. Couldn't restart DBBC3ke, says ACCESS-DENIED?
  • Updated - pdu2ke bypassed for the Dbbc3ke - use the UPS power cycle commands from flexbuffke (UPS reboot instructions) Hobart 12m
    • Stick with bkg, if issues persist go through another server
    • Refer to wiki for how to reboot Ke and Hb DBBCs

Hobart 12m:

  • 1730UT All Delay Corr gone bad immediately after recording started, halt and reconfigure DBBC3.


  • No useful datarecorded - RFoF failure
    • Been resolved (bad connections). Expect a few power failures this time of the season


Hobart 12m:

  • Power levels on corr A and C are lesser than ideal.
  • 0100UT no recordings at all. ran setupaum (warren)


  • 1846UT- all samplers stats bad. Power cycled dbbc. (prad)
  • 0030UT no recording happening, mode not defined, run setupaum (warren)
    • Jamie to look at logs to figure out what went wrong for both Hb and Ke
