  • On-going tasks
    • Network setup ( done ) - SBS MPD side might need few cables - need pull network for SBS side (0%)
    • Scaler crate setup (70 % - Steve ) - Steve could not talk to CPU (done) - IP fixed with DHCP - need change fan tray - CAEN ( done )
    • documentation of VME crate names to power cycle - need to make sure all VXS are in dhcp -Bryan ( done ) https://hallaweb.jlab.org/wiki/index.php/SBS_Network_Devices_in_Hall_A
    • 3 rd GEM VXS crate install router moved up ( 100% )
    • need power and network in GEM bunker ( done )
    • boot VME controllers (100 % done - need ask hostname TS crate )
    • TS cables - all fibers plugged (done) - will post informations -hodoscope / grinch/ shower separate - can be combined at any time now everything plugged to TS

- new firmware for LHRS TI

    • detector cabling
    • new MPD production - about to start - FPGA shipped to Paolo -
    • MPD VTP readout - on-going in daq lab - still having issue getting APV sending data to MPD - events going through high speed link

    • setup portservers : 1 4 port portserver for VTP (done), still need to set up a 8 port one and HCAL portserver
    • need to install remote switch for crate in bunker (done hareboot32) - rest are VXS or VME64 - need put CAEN crate on network

    • need to adjust for HCAL transit time with different PMTs
    • status of cosmics paddles ( installed by Bogdan )
    • GEM fibers too short : Mark will order parts - ( fiber ordered - + 2 extensions ordered )
