burtwb missing on Solaris but installed on linux64
c1lsc stalled this evening, so I powercycled it.
After that, I tried to lock arms to confirm the computer is working.
Then I realized that the restore alignment buttons do not work from any control room computer.
I found that it was because burtwb command was missing. For Solaris, looks like there used to be /cvs/cds/epics/extensions/burtwb but now
there is no /cvs/cds/epics directory. I thought there were directories other than "caltech" in /cvs/cds/, weren't there ?
Right now, there is only /cvs/cds/caltech.
Anyway, I installed burt for 64bit linux computer (under /cvs/cds/caltech/apps/linux64/epics/extensions/).
At this moment the alignment save/restore works on allegra (and probably on rosalba), but not on op440m yet.
The automatic backup of /cvs/cds (and /frames/minute-trends ) to the LIGO archive in Powell-Booth,
which runs from fb40m using the scripts in /cvs/cds/caltech/scripts/backup ,
stopped when fb40m was rebooted on June 28, 2008,
and the check_backup script I run to send an email when this happens also failed due to a scripting error.
But we still have a backup of /cvs/cds from June 27.
The backup of /cvs/cds (excluding /cvs/cds/caltech and /cvs/cds/tmp)
circa June 27, 2008
has been restored to
Please check to see that it has what we need.
Before moving it over to where it belongs,
it would be really nice to figure out what happened...
Meanwhile, I have fixed the check_backup script and restarted the backup, which will run this evening...
but maybe I should wait till the dust settles?
Now is also a good time to think about whether there is anything else besides for
/cvs/cds and /frames/minute-trends that should be backed up regularly.
