ALFOSC Sequencer processes, manual start and other goodies for specialists

Manual start

  1. On the Chooser click on the line

    'tessa.not.iac.es Willing to manage'

  2. Log in with username 'obs'. Password is the standard one.

  3. In a terminal window start the ALFOSC and FAPOL UIF

    /usr/local/bin/alfosc-interface.SEQDBSETUP &

    /home/software/alfosc/src/FAPOL/fapoctrl-socket-new.wsh &

  4. In a terminal window start the ALFOSC UIF sequencer server

    /home/software/alfosc/src/UIF-SOAP/alfoscuifserver &

  5. In a terminal window start the ALFOSC CCD control program

    ssh obs@ccd3-alfosc

    ccd3comm

  6. In a terminal window give the following commands

    setenv TCSACCESSCODE 1234567 (with the correct code)

    source ~/seq.aliases

    Now you can use the sequencer commands in this terminal window.

Manual Stop

  1. Exit the ALFOSC and FAPOL interfaces as you would normally do.

  2. Type quit to exit the ccd3comm program.

  3. Look up the alfoscuifserver process with ps and kill it.
