The desktop itself can be considered as the basic window of the EM. Marconi Navigation Page Book Contents . The HP Desktop is available when EM is run directly on the console of the HP Workstation. Each operation opens a window in the desktop displaying the data relative to the operation.USER'S INTERFACE USER'S CONSOLE The EM ServiceOn Optical Element Manager Software can run on an X-Terminal or on the Console of the computer (if it is equipped with high resolution monitor). More than one window can be opened on the desktop. It is however possible to configure the CDE/VUE in a different way (Refer to the HP-UX Documentation).Refer To Title Page 339-1051/18 Issue: 1 . where are available some general purpose commands and the EM icon (on the left side of the tool bar). The X-Terminal consists of the following parts: n Color monitor n Base Unit containing the digital electronics printed-circuit assembly and the Ethernet module n Keyboard n Mouse THE EM DESKTOP The HP-UX CDE/VUE forms the ServiceOn Optical Element Manager working area. Following is shown an example of configuration of the HP tool bar. COPYRIGHT . The organization of the facilities offered by the desktop can be divided into two basic "objects": Windows and Icons. The X-Terminal is a graphic terminal which is connected to the EM Network Server by means of an ethernet LAN (Refer to Description Installation for more details). the limit to the number of windows open at any one time depends on memory available in the X-Terminal (refer to Description Installation).

ERROR MESSAGES
This chapter gives a list of the messages which can be displayed by the EM during the operation. The messages, which appear on the User interface within a dedicated message box, are listed below, in alphabetical order. The number in bracket after the term Error stands for an Operating System error code that is always specified within the message box. The more important values are:
13 Permission Denied 2 No such file or directory 17 File Exist

ACTIVE REGION CANNOT BE REMOVE.
The user tried to remove the region that is currently open.

ANOTHER REGION CAN'T BE OPEN
The User tried to open a region while another one is already open.

The software is not able to allocate the color resources necessary for the Network Element Shelf representation.

COMMAND NOT EXECUTABLE, PROCESS CRASH EXIT AND LOG IN AGAIN !
The process dedicated to the operation requested by the User is not correctly running. Restart the User Interface.

DATABASE DATA AND INSTALLATION NESTING LEVEL ARE INCONSISTENT.
The number of the levels managed and the regions which are stored within the database are incompatible.

DATABASE IS INCONSISTENT FOR THIS NETWORK ELEMENT…..
The contents of the Database tables has been lost or damaged.

DB TABLE NE_TYPE_INFO IS WRONG
The configuration of the NE Types managed is not correct.

DO YOU WANT TO REMOVE BACKUP FILES?
During the backup of Alarm history or quality data files the Backup files deletion option has been selected. The system asks for confirmation.
