Versions of the NCS
We distinguish the following versions of the coordinator software:
current version (v1.13): this is the version that is recommended to be used
fallback currenlty no fallback version
See /ncsServer/mrt/ncs/packages/coordinatorCurrent/Modifications.txt for information about features only available in the current version.
Please note: The NCS also uses software in other directories like /ncsServer/mrt/ncs/lib/python which is not changed when switching between versions ! (We might do this in the future as well)
How to switch to the fall-back version
In case of problems with the actual version (1.11) of the coordinator software the operator can switch back to a fallback version (1.10). Note: This is currently possible but might at some moment not be possible anymore because of change is other programs. Check always this page before switching to the fallback version!
On mrt-lx1, account mrt do:
stop all processes started with go, use ./goKill
stop all processes started with goOnce, use ./goOnceKill
- change the link coordinator in in directory /ncsServer/mrt/ncs/packages:
cd /ncsServer/mrt/ncs/packages/coordinator ./goKill ./goOnceKill cd /ncsServer/mrt/ncs/packages rm -v coordinator ln -s coordinatorFallback coordinator cd coordinator # restart goOnce and go: ./goOnce echo "time to switch display" sleep 5 ./go
(please note: this script has not yet been tested.)
