    This entry is a followup to: 196434


    keyword=alarms fixed, running on hapc5 now

    Some issues with the voice alarms :

    1. Couldn't login to hapc7 because some process there is opening ssh
    sockets at the rate of about 3 per minute and eventually running out of
    connections. I guess we could reboot hapc7 but the experiment is happy
    so I avoided it. But that is NOT why alarms failed.

    2. Moved alarms server to hapc5 where less is going on.

    3. Noticed that adaql4 was rebooted at approx 5 pm yesterday. When
    "cron" restarted the alarms it failed because cron does not inherit the
    user's environment, e.g. $PATH. I fixed this partly but I still have
    the problem that "caget" does not work if launched within cron.
    That was the real reason for failure.

    I've left the alarms in a working state.
