keyword=Change of configuration : painful
DVCSMux configuration seems stable once up and running. We changed to DVCSCaloLED for LED scan, then TWOARMS for multifoil and LH2 HRS runs. When trying to get back to DVCSMux to resume DVCS production, I got the following message (from TS1, but I'm not sure):
dow Board 20 : fa1e0000
daLogMsg: User Download Executed
roc_cleanup: try msgQSend args = 18ECD88.
daLogMsg: prestarting,run 3753, type 31

daLogMsg: connected to EB1 (adaql2-192.jlab.org, 36767, file21)
open_links returned : database query: MSQL server has gone away
I tried rebooting it, didn't solved the problem. Then I tried rebooting all rocs. Not enough. Then kill coda + reboot all rocs. At this point I got the known error ("") from ROC 18, so I restarted from scratch, trying a DVCS run to "warm it up" (run 3757). I stopped it quickly and changed configuration to DVCSMux. It is now up and running at the usual 100Hz.
This whole procedure took me around 15min (20:35-20:51). I recommend doing the two-times-a-day special runs at a different time, say 10h-22h, so that the expert is around, and thus avoid the 7am potential problems.
