AC415 GENUSD-O Block


We have AC415 backend controllers and frontend xa with PG2 graphics.

I have configured one GENUSD-O block with a soft selector switch in PG2 graphics.

There was some power outage in system and after that i am getting an error while operating GENUSD-O block with PG2 switch.

Error is "Operation is not allowed when process update is not blocked"

Same GENUSD-O block, I am able to operate from my Unix station but facing issue while operating from xa client with PG2 graphics.

Anybody have faced this issue before ?

Sounds like the object is in AUTO while order is only permitted in MAN mode. The power outage may have reset the state to AUTO.

Dual: Single operation or configuration is not allowed

Single operation/configuration is not enabled. This can be done by setting the

relevant SNG_DIAL property in the NODE_DESCR database element. Used for

test purposes only.

Whenever a change is made to a NODE_DESCR database element, a backup

and restart of the RTA Board is required. Otherwise the changes made will not

be implemented..
