C1LSC in coma
The C1LSC medm screen is frozen and the C1LSC computer is down. We tried to reboot and to restart it first turning off the power and then just rebooting remotely. None of them worked. We check whether any of the cable was unplugged but they were ok. Also all the led turned on to green after rebooting.
Trying to reboot we get the following error message: init_module: device or resource busy.
We called Alex who first suggested to check all the connection and then to swap the timing cable between two Pentek boards but the computer was still down.
It is possible that the board is dead. Alex and Rolf are going to look into this problem and for any spare board.
by now we can't lock any DOF of the IFO.
Alex, Rob, Alberto,
Alex replaced the Pentek board used by C1LSC with a spare one that they had at the Wilson house. That fixed the DMA failure but since the board had a channel broken, one of the channels (POY) was still not available.
Looking at the wiring diagram of the ASC crate, we found that one of the Pentek boards in it was actually not used by anything and thus available to replace the bad one in LSC. We switched the two boards so that now the one that Alex installed is mounted in the ASC crate and it is connected to the cable labeled 1x2-ASC 6.
C1LSC is up again and all the channels in the C1LSC screen, including POY, now seem to be working properly.
