Re: [foxboro] Global Variable Connections

Sean,

Even though this may work, I do not recommend it and it is not supported
behavior. ALMCNT, ALMSTATE, and other variables are created by the
hiinit process at boot for the Alarm Manager. They are considered
workstation global variables (know and available to the workstation
processes). Connections to these variables are not supported. No other
process should be altering these variables nor should they be deleting
and recreating them. This could cause unexpected problems with the AM.

This came up not so long ago with another client. It seems that the DM
variables are created with a special version of obj_create() that does
not announce the creation of the variable.

Since the (re)creation is not announced, the CP's OM can't reconnect to
it.

The work around was - are you ready for this? - on reboot:

1) Delete ALMCNTK0AW02 using omdel
2) Create ALMCNTK0AW02 using omcrt

This will cause the variable to be announced to the system.

I've never personally done this, but I've been told that it is working
at another site. I'd suggest trying it on a test system first.


If you happen to have AOS on your system, you might be able to do this
without the delete/create by using aosReconnect. I've never tried it
with a Shared Variable, but it ought to work.

/opt/aos/exe/aosReconnect ALMCNTK0AW02

should do it.


Hope this helps.
