I've been putting together a new machine that Rolf got for us as a replacement for fb.
I've installed and configured the OS, and compiled daqd and the necessary supporting software. I want to try acquiring data with it. This will require removing the current/old fb from the DAQ network, and adding the new machine. It should be able to be done relatively non-invasively, such that none of the front end configuration needs to be adjusted, and the old fb can be put back in place easily.
If the test is successfully, then I'll push ahead with the rest of the replacement (such as either moving or copying the /frames RAID to the new machine).
I will do this work in the early AM tomorrow, September 22, 2015.
