4 Pre-LFC Save System State


The system state backup saves vital calibration and scanner files. Follow the appropriate
procedures throughout this document precisely or valuable information may be lost. This process
takes approximately 10 minutes for GOC3/4, but in some cases it may take up to 30 minutes. This
process is more involved for GOC1 (IRIX) and GOC2 (Linux-Pegasus) upgrades.

Perform one of the following methods to Save System State, depending on current Operator
Console type. A current version of the System State is a requirement for continuing with this LFC
procedure.

4.1 GOC1 IRIX Systems Upgrading to Linux - Save System State Twice

For GOC1 (IRIX) systems, Save System State for Upgrading to Linux, see Table 3.

4.2 GOC2 Systems Upgrading to GOC3/4 - Save System State Twice

For GOC2 (Linux-Pegasus) systems, Save System State, see Table 4

4.3 GOC3/GOC4 - Save System State Once


Follow the procedure described in Table 2. Upon completion, proceed to the LFC installation
procedures in Section 6.

Console
For GOC1/GOC2 Console Upgrade Only - Install GRE/Xtream Console, see Table 5

6 Host Computer LFC


Whenever the Host Computer LFC is performed, the DARC software must be loaded using the
same software set version. Additionally, if the DARC Node is not loaded, ssh (Security Shell) issues
will result in an Unknown Host failure.

Before proceeding you must disconnect the console from the Hospital Network. Failure to
NOTE:
do this may result in the console broadcasting traffic out to the entire Hospital network.
NOTICE
After each reboot during the software install process, an 'Unrecognized X-Ray
Tube' message will be displayed (as shown in Tube Install Certification Tool -
Screens), until the tube identity has been selected and 'Flash Download' has also
been performed. The same “unrecognized x-ray tube” message will also be
displayed on the CSD Homepage, until the ID and flash download are done.

6.1 Host Computer BIOS Requirement

1. Open a Unix Shell and become root:

{ctuser@hostname} su -

2. Password: <password>

If the Password has not been modified by the site and is not known, the correct
NOTE:
course of action is to contact Local GE Service.

3. To determine the Host Computer BIOS version, type the following:

[root@hostname] dmidecode | grep Ver

Authorized BIOS versions

Version: JQ.W1.13US = 1.13 for xw8000

Version: 786B8 v2.10 = 2.10 for xw8200

4. Ensure that the Host Computer BIOS version is an authorized version as shown above.
5. If the Host BIOS version is not correct or if you suspect incorrect Host BIOS settings
(changes specified by GE from default), follow the instructions for your specific Host type:
o For HP xw8000, see PC BIOS Install& Setup for HP xw8000 Host Console.
REQUIRED: Manually configure all BIOS settings at this time.
o For HP xw8200, see PC BIOS Install& Setup for HP xw8200 Host Console.
REQUIRED: The HP xw8200 has the ability to place the BIOS 2.10 Configuration
Floppy into the Host and configure all BIOS settings without any manual entries.
Load the BIOS 2.10 Configuration Floppy at this time.

6.2 Linux Operating System (OS) Software Load - Host Computer

CAUTION
Potential for Loss of Patient Data.
This procedure will overwrite existing data.
Before performing this procedure, ensure that the Archive and Network Queues are
empty of patient data. If they are not, DO NOT proceed until it can be verified that
all patient data has been archived.
During the OS load you need to select "ignore" twice when it complains about I/O errors
with a SCSI device. These messages may occur with systems without a DASM:
NOTE:
Input/output error during read on /dev/sd?

Input/output error during write on /dev/sd?

1. Unplug the Hospital Network (HSP) cable from rear Console bulkhead. (See Illustration 2.)
2. Label the cable as HSP and set it aside during LFC.
3. Remove the Operator Console's front cover.
4. If present, ensure that the DARC/IG Troubleshooting Video Cable is not connected to the
Scan or Display Monitors during the software load.
5. Insert the OS DVD into the tray on Host Computer DVD-ROM Drive.

NOTE: The Host Computer must be powered ON to insert the disk.

6. Select one of the following methods to re-power the Operator Console:


a. If Applications are up select the [Shutdown] icon. On the Attention screen
(Illustration 3), select [Restart], then [OK].
b. If Application Software is down, at the Toolchest open a Unix Shell and type:
i. {ctuser@hostname} halt
ii. The Operator Console monitor will display a System halted message
when it is acceptable to power OFF the Operator Console. (See Note.)

(For 06MW03.X Software) Wait 1-2 minutes after the “System


halted” message appears, to allow the VDARC Node to properly
NOTE:
power-down. SW release 06MW29.7 and later has corrected this
issue.

iii. Power OFF the Operator Console at the front panel switch. (See
Illustration 4.)
iv. (For GOC3 Consoles) The Trackball USB-to-PS2 converter must be Part
# 5195935 (provided with FMI 25389). This prevents problems with the OS
load (mouse confusion) on the Host.
v. Wait 30 seconds to allow the disk drive to settle; then power ON the
Operator Console at the front panel switch.
7. As the Host Computer restarts, the booting process messages appear. After the booting
process completes, the boot: prompt appears. (The OS is a bootable media.)
8. At the boot prompt, type the following depending on system type:

(For English Keyboard only) GEHC2

(For International Command only) iGEHC2

If a DASM is connected, select [Ignore] as required for IO errors. If the boot:


prompt does not appear, then either the DVD is unusable or the Console
NOTE: Operating System Media is not installed in the drive. Typing GEHC (or iGEHC)
results in both scan and display being on one monitor and requires a LFC. Typing
any other command not listed in this procedure will result in a LFC.

9. After approximately 20 minutes, the OS is loaded on the Host Computer. A window


appears.
10. Remove the OS DVD from the Host Computer DVD-ROM drive when it ejects and close the
tray.
11. Press <Enter> to reboot.
12. The Host Computer begins to reboot.

Do not insert the Applications Software DVD into the Host Computer until the Host
NOTE: has completed rebooting and the [root@localhost ~] window appears,
displaying the prompt:[root@localhost ~]. (See Illustration 5.)
(For 6.2.9 OS) The bootup screen changes for each OS version. The 6.2.9 OS
Boot-up Screen display (shown below) contains output that may be misunderstood
as a Host hardware or software issue. For example, in the screen below refer to
“PCI: Failed to allocate mem resource #6” and “FATAL: Error
NOTE:
inserting...” errors). These are normal typical messages. Additionally,
whenever the HSP Ethernet cable is disconnected from the Operator Console
bulkhead, Firewall PNF errors may occur. Ignore these errors. Any other errors
should be investigated.
14. After the Host Computer reboots, verify that a window appears on the Display monitor with
the prompt: [root@localhost ~]#.
15. In the root@localhost ~ window, verify 3 Host hard drives and the SCSI Tower MOD and
DVD are present (for a total of 5 items listed for xw8000 and xw8200).

[root@localhost ~]# cat /proc/scsi/scsi

6.3 Application SW Load on the Host Computer

All Applications software will be loaded to the Host Computer during this process.

(For GOC3 Consoles) If a mouse hang occurs after the OS load on the Host, install the
correct Trackball USB to PS2 converter and reset the Host to continue. GOC3 Operator

8 DARC Software Load Process


This section describes the DARC Software Load Process. This section of the LFC is also used for
DARC reload and replacement. In the reload case, if any Service Packs have been released for this
version of software, refer to included instructions and load the Service Pack after the DARC
software load if necessary.

8.1 DARC Reloads Only- Confirm Host Software

1. Open a Unix Shell and type the following to determine Host Computer software information:

{ctuser@hostname} swhwinfo

07MW11.10<hardware revision info here>

2. {ctuser@hostname} swhwinfo –os for OS version

Release: GEHC/CTT Linux 6.2.9

Built: Wed Jan 3 11:05:37 CST 2007

3. Confirm that the Host OS and Apps results match the OS and Apps software versions to be
loaded for the DARC Node.

8.2 Check DARC Node Type

1. Log into the DARC and determine hardware type (Westville = WV or Jarrell = JR):

{ctuser@hostname} ipmitool -H darc -P '' fru | grep -i "Board


Product"

(Example) Board Product : SE7520JR23

Board Product : Intel(R) Management Module - Professional Edition

2. To determine DARC Node type, view the first line at the top of the response. (See
examples below.)
o Westville DARC Nodes will contain a WV string (example, SWV25)
o Jarrell DARC Nodes will contain a JR string (example, SE7520JR23)

Westville DARC2 Node (Front)

Jarrell DARC2 Node (Front)


3. If the DARC is Westville, proceed to Section 8.3.

If the DARC is Jarrell, proceed to Section 8.4.

8.3 Westville DARC Nodes Only: DARC BIOS Boot Order Enable Load

Only Westville DARC and DARC2 Nodes require DARC Node BIOS to be enabled and then
restored. Jarrell DARC Nodes DO NOT require a DARC BIOS Boot Order change before or after a
software load (unless the vendor shipped the BIOS with incorrect settings or the DARC has been
previously used and restocked).

This section describes the steps necessary to change the Westville DARC Node BIOS to Enable
the OS/Apps load from the Host Computer. The Westville DARC Node BIOS Boot Order is modified
for Enable before the DARC Node OS load, and must be returned to final operational Restore
settings after the DARC Node load. Failure to return the Westville DARC Node BIOS Boot Order to
the Restore settings after the load process is complete may result in DARC boot issues (DARC
Node fails to boot up) that can occur randomly at any time.

If the DARC OS load fails, a pop-up may appear stating that the DARC BIOS must be
checked. Try reloading the SOL CD. After the BIOS is checked, if the DARC load
NOTE:
continues to fail, determine if the problem is the Ethernet cable, Host NIC, or DARC Node
(look for the LAN LED activity on the DARC).

1. Open a Unix Shell and type the following:


a. {ctuser@hostname} su -
b. Password: <password>

If the Password has not been modified by the site and is not known, the
NOTE:
correct course of action is to contact Local GE Service.

c. [root@hostname]service cliservice start


d. [root@hostname] telnet localhost 623
e. Server:darc
f. Username:<Enter>
g. Password:<Enter>
Login successful

h. dpccli> reset

ok

dpccli> console

A slight delay here is normal. Watch the screen for the [F2] prompt. If the
NOTE: prompt is missed for entering the BIOS, close the Telnet session and
retry.

2. Interrupt the DARC boot process to enter the BIOS Setup mode. When the message
“Press< F2> to enter setup” appears, press [F2].

<F2> must be selected in a timely manner or the process to access F2 will need to
NOTE: be repeated. There will be a short delay before the DARC BIOS setup screen is
displayed.

3. For DARC Node BIOS screen setup instructions for Westville, refer to Change DARC BIOS
Boot Order - Enable Load.

Verify that the initial Boot device Priority for OS load is set as shown below.

IBA 1.1.08 Slot 0338

ATAPI CD-ROM

Hard Drive

IBA 1.1.08 Slot 0339

Removable Devices

For Jarrell DARC Nodes, refer to Change DARC BIOS Boot Order - Restore
NOTE:
Settings, Step 3.

4. After saving the DARC BIOS, the BIOS SETUP UTILITY window should disappear (within
approximately one minute) and the DARC will begin to reboot. If this window does not
disappear within a minute or so, close the window and attempt to load the DARC Node. The
DARC Node may require a reset.
5. If necessary, close the Terminal Window.

8.4 OS / Applications Installation for DARC from Host Computer

No DVD is required during a LFC.. OS will be loaded from the Host Computer (initial OS load)
onto the DARC Node as long as the DARC BIOS Order is configured properly for your DARC Node
hardware type. The Apps will be loaded at this time also. This process takes approximately 30 - 35
minutes.
A DVD may be required for Reloading / Replacement of a DARC Node. The user must perform
the [root@hostname scripts] ./load_darc_subsystem -restart for all DARC Node
replacements or any DARC Node reloads.

1. Open a Unix Shell and type the following:


a. {ctuser@hostname} su -
b. Password:<password>

If the Password has not been modified by the site and is not known, the
NOTE:
correct course of action is to contact Local GE Service.

c. [root@hostname] cd /usr/g/scripts

The user must perform the [root@hostname


scripts] ./load_darc_subsystem -restart for all DARC Node
replacements or any DARC Node reloads that may experience an
unexpected failure. An Attention box may appear instructing the user to
NOTE: insert either the OS DVD or the Apps DVD. It does not matter which media
DVD you insert into the Host Computer; however, the Apps DVD is
preferred if it is known to be good (not a bootable DVD). If the DARC OS
or Application software is corrupt and requires a reload, then a LFC must
be performed.

d. Perform one of the following commands as required:


 For all full LFCs:

[root@hostname scripts] ./load_darc_subsystem

 For DARC Node Reloads, Replacements, or when load failures occur:

[root@hostname scripts] ./load_darc_subsystem -restart

e. An Attention window appears. (See Illustration 23.)


2. Follow the instructions in the Attention window.
3. Then select [OK].

SOL Service (Illustration 24) and DARC BIOS (Illustration 25) error and attention
NOTE:
boxes may appear.

4. The Unix Shell will display output during the 30 minute DARC load. Example output is as
follows:

[root@hostname

[load_darc_subsystem] [Start time] Loading the darc subsystem(OS +


Apps) takes 30 minutes

[load_darc_subsystem] [Start time] Loading the darc OS

[load_darc_subsystem] [Time] Loading the darc OS is complete

[load_darc_subsystem] [Time] Loading the darc apps


[load_darc_subsystem] [End time] Loading the darc is complete

[load_darc_subsystem] [End time] Load started: (Date) (Start


time)

[load_darc_subsystem] [End time] Load ended: (Date) (End time)

[load_darc_subsystem] [End time] Finished loading darc subsystem.

[root@hostname]#

5. Additionally, an sh window displays the OS and Apps load messages.

The DARC Load should complete in approximately 30 to 35 minutes. It will stop


prematurely ONLY if an error is encountered. An Error Dialog Box should appear
with a brief description of the error. Select [OK] after performing the instructions
displayed on the Monitor.

If failures occur during ./load_darc_subsystem, perform the


NOTE:
./load_darc_subsystem -restart command. If failures occur during
./load_darc_subsystem -restart, perform the ./start_darcOS
command with the OS DVD inserted in the Host Computer. Then, perform the
./start_darc_load command to load the Application software onto the DARC.
If the two previous commands fail and the issue is thought to be software, perform
a full LFC.
A %done status is displayed during the DARC OS load. This is a timed countdown
NOTE:
sequence and does not provide status of the actual load process.

7. When the DARC load has completed, the sh window will close. The Unix Shell provides the
status of the load process.

8.5 Confirm DARC Software Has Loaded / Security Shell

Verify the OS and Application Software has loaded on the DARC.

1. After the DARC is rebooted, open a Unix Shell and type the following:
a. {ctuser@hostname} rsh darc
b. {ctuser@darc} exit
2. If the prompt {ctuser@darc} does not appear, the DARC Node may require a reload or a
hardware failure may be present. Verify the remote shell is successful. If rsh fails, try the
ping darc command and check the Host ifconfig to verify the DARC address and
Running message.
3. Verify the DARC to Host security shell is successful. If the prompt {ctuser@darc} does
not appear, then the LFC process was not followed or a sshd config file has been
corrupted.
a. {ctuser@hostname} ssh darc
b. {ctuser@darc} exit
4. If both the ssh and rsh are successful, continue with next section.

If the rsh is successful, but the ssh command still fails, Application software will not start
properly and the system will eventually halt. Perform the following to correct for port 22
unknown Host issues:
a. Open a Unix Shell and become root:

{ctuser@hostname} su -

Password:<password>

b. [root@hostname] config_sshd
c. A message will appear:

[config_sshd] Setting up sshd on oc and darc for root and


ctuser accounts.

Starting sshd: [OK]

Starting sshd: [OK]

8.6 Restore Settings - DARC BIOS Boot Order (Westville ONLY)

This section describes the steps necessary to restore the BIOS boot order on the Westville DARC
Node to its original settings for normal operation. This is a required section for all Westville
DARC Nodes.

(For Jarrell DARC Node) Continue with Section 8.7.

(For Westville DARC Node) The Westville DARC BIOS boot order must be returned to the Restore
Settings (operational mode) to avoid a known Intel PXE boot problem, which can occur randomly
and prevent the DARC Node from booting.

1. Open a Unix Shell (if needed) and type the following:


a. {ctuser@hostname}su -
b. Password:<password>
c. [root@hostname]service cliservice start

19 Tube Identification Certification


To perform Tube Identification Certification, refer to the steps below.

NOTE: For a visual description of this procedure, refer to the flowchart in Illustration 33.
NOTICE
(For Scanners with GE Tubes) If the software is installed by a non-GE person or the
GE field engineer does not have a service key, a GE Field Engineer is required On-
Site within 30 days, to perform the verification portion of this procedure. This
verification cannot be done by non-GE employees. If a GE Service employee is not
currently on site, please contact your GE Healthcare representative to arrange a
visit.

This section is absolutely critical to perform. Failure to do so will result in nuisance


pop-ups to the customer and tube performance may decrease.

If a non-GE supplied tube is used, GE cannot assure that the system performance will conform to
specifications.

1. The GE FE shall be called if not on-site for tube ID verification.


2. Visually verify the tube supplier (GE or other).
3. Visually verify if a “Tube ID” board is present (GE only).
4. The GE FE shall install the Class M service key.
5. Select the Service icon.
6. Select [Configuration], then [Tube Install Certification]. The Tube Install Certification
Confirmation screen appears. (See Illustration 34.)
7. Based on tube visual verification results from above, click on the proper tube type.
8. Select [Confirm], [Accept], and [Dismiss].

NOTE: The user will [Restart] the Console from the Service icon later in the LFC.

9. Depending on the process being performed, do one of the following:


o Full LFC: proceed to Flash Download after TIC

Or

o GE FE visiting after the LFC is completed: continue with the following steps
10. Select the Service icon. On the Attention screen, select [Shutdown], then [Restart], and
[OK].
11. The GE FE shall [OK] as required and verify during Apps startup that the pop-up messages
are in accordance with the selections made.

If the tube in your system has a “Tube ID” board, the software automatically selects the
tube identity and sets it to “GE Performix Tube.” There is no action needed. For all other
systems or if the software does not automatically select the tube identity, follow the
procedure shown below.

Verification that a tube is a GE Healthcare tube (called “GE Performix Tube” in the TIC tool)
can be done by checking the tube insert model number (2120785 or 2120785-2), which can
be found on the tube rating plate. (Exception: The “Performix Pro” is a GE OEM tube, but
does not have this tube insert model number.)

Do not “double click” the Tube Certification Tool. This will cause more than one
tool window to be displayed, one with message service key information
NOTE:
not available. If double-clicking occurs, close the window and try again. If
issues occur more than once, reboot the system and try again.
NOTE: TIC Notes:
Possible Pop Up messages at start up:

o If the tube selection is GE tube without time limit, no pop up messages


relating to tube identity will occur at Apps startup.
o If the tube selection is GE with time limit, a message with days remaining
for GE FE to verify tube will be shown at Apps startup until the GE FE
removes the time limit with service key. If not verified by the GE FE within
the time limit, the system will default to “All Others.”
o If the tube is set to “All Others,” an unrecognized x-ray tube installed
message will always be shown at Apps startup.

Please refer to Tube Install Certification Tool - Screens for examples of the screens
displayed by the Tube Install Certification Tool.

12. The GE FE shall perform the FLASH Download after TIC and Save System State sections.

20 FLASH Download after TIC


This is a firmware REQUIREMENT to load Tube Identification Certification parameters. A Save
System State is also required; this is performed later within this LFC.

1. Select the Service Icon, [Utilities], [Install], [FLASH Download Tool].


2. Select [Update].

NOTE: Ignore any initial errors or TGP “unknown” messaging. This is not a problem.

3. Once the Gantry Hardware Flash Downloads successfully, select [Dismiss], then close the
window and the Common Service Desktop.

required.

23.1 XW8000 and XW8200 Host Computer

23.1.1 Autovoice Settings (Fixed with Service Pack 2)

The Autovoice settings process must be performed for every LFC until Service Pack 2 is loaded. It
is possible that after performing a LFC without Service Pack 2 (or greater), the system may exhibit
two different problems related to Autovoice settings: Low Volume and / or Feedback (squealing or
noise) through the speakers.

23.1.2 Volume Adjustment (Fixed with Service Pack 2)

If Autovoice volume is too low:

1. Select the “Autovoice Volume” (“audioSetting”) tool from the Tool Chest menu to increase
the volume as needed.
2. Click [Save], then [OK]. Changing Autovoice settings may result in feedback issues. If this
occurs, proceed to Section 23.1.3.

23.1.3 Feedback Remediation (Fixed with Service Pack 2)

If Autovoice feedback issues exist, perform the following steps:

1. Open a Unix Shell.


2. Type alsamixer, then <Enter>. The Autovoice Settings screen appears (Illustration 35.

Settings shown may not depict the final settings for your console. Settings vary
NOTE:
from console to console.

3. Press the <right-arrow> key to move the cursor selection to the PCM slider.
4. Press the <up-arrow> key to increase the PCM setting to 100%.
5. If feedback is heard, press the <right-arrow> key to move cursor selection to the Line slider.
6. Press the <down-arrow> key to decrease Line setting until feedback is no longer heard.

NOTE: Do not mute the Line device, as it is needed for Autovoice Record.

7. When you have completed your adjustments, press <Esc> to exit AlsaMixer.
8. If the Line setting was changed, then STOP. You have completed Autovoice setup. If the
Line setting was not changed, select the Autovoice Volume tool from Tool Chest menu and
click [Save], then [OK] to save the PCM settings to file.

If Line setting was changed and then the Autovoice Volume settings saved, the
NOTE: Line value set via AlsaMixer is reset to “61.” (It was overwritten by the “Save.”)
Repeat steps 5 through 7 to adjust Line settings.

23.2 XW8400 Host Computer (Needed when XW8400 is introduced)


23.2.1 Autovoice Settings

After Service Pack 2 is installed, if the Autovoice setting is equal to 85 (i.e. factory default setting),
then do not perform volume adjustment. If the Autovoice setting is higher or lower than 85, it is
recommended to perform volume adjustment.

23.2.2 Volume Adjustment

1. Select the “Autovoice Volume” (“audioSetting”) tool from the Tool Chest menu to increase
the volume as needed.
2. Next click [Save], then [OK].

23.3 Gantry Tilt Adjustment - Initial Load Only

The 07MW software/firmware was changed on all 7.X and 5.X gantries to catch systems with tilt
speeds grossly out of spec. Since the gantry Home Zero point is reliant upon the Tilt Speed
adjustment, if the Gantry Tilt Speed is too slow or too fast the gantry Zero will be incorrect.

The 5.X and 7.X gantry tilt design has two Zero Home positions, one from the Forward direction and
one from the Backwards tilt direction. The two Home positions are slightly different, but at both
Home locations the gantry display reads 0.0 degrees. The two Home Positions are mainly driven by
the coasting-to-a-stop motion of the gantry. When the Forward and Backward Tilt speeds are set as
close to 1 degree per second as possible, it ensures the two Zero Home positions are the same.

Resolution: The Tilt speed needs to be adjusted to 1 degree / second

The following procedure can be used for 5.X systems. (For additional methods see the Hydraulic
Tilt Motor Speed Adjustment (Illustration 36) in the Systems Service Manual.)

1. Set the Service Switch to Service mode (Illustration 37).


2. Using the gantry controls, tilt the gantry forward and back and the gantry speed will be
displayed on the gantry control (Illustration 38).

24 System Sanity - Scanning & Network Operation


1. Select [Daily Prep] on the Scan monitor.
2. Perform [Tube Warmup].
3. Select [Quit] when tube warm-up is completed.
4. Successfully perform a Scout scan.
5. Successfully perform a Helical scan.
6. Successfully perform an Axial scan.

25 Save System State


To Save System State, follow the procedure described in Table 2.

26 Finalization
All PNF settings were restored from System State. Disabling telnet in PNF is
NOTE:
recommended. Remote telnet is disabled for security reasons; PNF acts as your firewall.
1. Set telnet via Product Network Filters (PNF) per customer request.
2. If the site has DICOM print configured, perform DICOM print to confirm network operation
with the PNF firewall set to ON.
3. If you have archive server configured, perform image archive & retrieve to confirm network
operation with the PNF firewall set to ON.
4. Remove the System State from the SCSI Tower DVD drive.
5. Verify that all software media has been removed from the DVD tray in the Host Computer
and SCSI Tower.
6. Verify that all floppies have been removed from the floppy drive in the Host Computer.
7. Verify all software media has been removed from the DVD tray in the DARC Node.
8. Verify that the DARC/IG Troubleshooting Cable is not connected to Scan or Display
Monitors.

The troubleshooting cable (used for DARC and IG Node) must not be connected
at either end of this cable except when troubleshooting. When connected to a
NOTE: monitor, the DARC/IG Node may take over the monitor, causing customer
confusion. EMC requirements are violated if the troubleshooting cable is
connected to either the DARC or IG Node.

9. Verify that the DARC/IG Troubleshooting Video Cable is not connected to the rear of the
DARC/IG Node.
10. Replace the front and rear Operator Console covers.
11. Remove any phantoms used during System Sanity Scanning.
12. The LFC process is now complete.

27 Drift Setdate
A second setdate is required to calculate a drift adjustment value. Drift varies for each Host
Computer. The usage of the system, internal Host Computer temperature, and the characteristics of
the clock located on the Host motherboard can all affect the time drift. Currently, Engineering
recommends waiting a minimum of 24 hours after the initial setdate. In the event that this 24-hour
interval is not possible, perform setdate now. Understand that setdate may need to be performed
more often at some sites.

The time entered must be based on the same clock source used during the initial setdate.

Open a Unix Shell and become root:

{ctuser@hostname} su -

Password:<password>

If the Password has not been modified by the site and is not known, the correct course of
NOTE:
action is to contact Local GE Service.

Utilize the time from your laptop to perform setdate for drift:

[root@hostname]# setdate

Note: Type “q” to quit anytime. Enter to proceed:<Enter>

Note: TO BE ACCURATE, this tool will prompt you to enter the “Second”.
Watch your clock or PC carefully to enter the proper value, and hit
[Enter] at the right second to set the accurate time. Enter to
proceed:<Enter>

Enter the current Year (1980-2030)[2007]:

Enter the current Month (1-12)[04]:

Enter the current Day (1-30)[14]:

Enter the current Hour (Military Time) (0-23)[18]:

Enter the current Minute (0-59)[13]:

Enter the current Second (0-59)[00]:

Updating the time on the OC and DARC, Please Wait...

Current OC date : Fri Apr 14 15:18:00 CDT 2006

Could not retrieve the DARC TimeZone.

Please make sure the TimeZones for the OC and DARC are the same.

Setdate completed with NO ERRORS.

[root@hostname]#

28 Restart the System before Customer Turnover

NOTICE
NEVER Use [CTRL - ALT - DELETE] to reboot. This technique will NOT reboot all
console subsystems, and as such is an unacceptable practice.

1. Select the Service icon. On the Attention screen, select [Shutdown], then [Restart], and
[OK].
2. If a Restart was not performed during the Tube Identification Certification process, the
related tube pop-up messages shall be verified now beginning at Step 10 of “Tube
Identification Certification.”
3. When Apps starts up, the Admin screen will appear if “HIPAA Present” was set to ON
during the Application LOAD process. The Admin screen requires the following input:
o Operation: Login
o Username: root
o Password:<password>

If the Password has not been modified by the site and is not known, the
NOTE:
correct course of action is to contact Local GE Service.

o Select [OK].
4. A pink pop-up Attention Message appears: Waiting for System Startup….
5. Select [OK] for FastCal and other message boxes that appear throughout the reboot
process.
6. Wait for the system to fully reboot with Applications software fully up before proceeding.

29 Final Save System State


The System State may need to be saved again. Refer to Service Pack instructions. The System
State must be saved after a new LFC and after the Service pack is installed. A Save System State
is also required if additional processes were required because settings were not restored properly
from the previous System State, or if the Service Pack corrections affected saved items. If in doubt,
resave the System State at this time.

30 Smart Step Option (Fixed with Service Pack 2)


When using Smart Step Option, the cradle release button on the Handheld controller does not work
without Service Pack 2 (or greater) loaded. Use the Cradle Release button on the gantry.
