S4PM 4.5.2 RELEASE NOTES
August 25, 2003
New Password Mechanism for Critical Tasks
- Tasks which before required a password only will now require both
a user name and password for the user's UNIX account on that
machine. If a user is authorized for that particular task and if
the password for that user is correct, the task will be performed,
otherwise, it will not. The tasks which make use of this new feature are:
- IGNORE_OPTIONAL - In Gran Find
- IGNORE_REQUIRED - In Gran Find
- EXPIRE_CURRENT_TIMER - In Gran Find
- DPREP_BOOTSTRAP - In Gran Find (for DPREP only)
- KILLALL - Associated with 'Kill All' button in TkStat GUI
New QC Continue Function - When a PGE fails due to ALL output products failing QC checks, the
correct action to take is click on *QC Continue*. This will make
sure that the bad data is correctly blocked from export and
downstream processing as well as correctly decrementing the uses.
Case-Based Reasoning Log - A new log file, cbr.log, will exist in the stations directory and the size and growth of this file should be monitored. The file is
named: cbr.log (for Case-Based Reasoning) and it is updated when a
manual intervention is made (e.g. when re-starting a failed job,
when selecting *Ignore Optionin the Gran Find station).
Detailed File Changes
Fixed the reference to the Specify Data configuration files
so that it looks in the specify_data_cfg subdirectory of
specify_data rather than in specify_data itself.
Removed the entering and processing of a password via the
GUI, as this is now handled via the new tk_pwbox.pl which a
user must get through first.
Modified to print out a bit more verbage when submitting
Modified slightly to handle the new ACL files associated
Modified to make use of S4PM::submit_trouble_ticket() rather
than doing it itself.
- Minor fix to the non-GUI command line mode.
