Node down errors from aliased acnet nodes since erlang dpm shutdown
Probably since the Erlang DPMs were shut down, ACNET returns
[1 -42] (ACNET_NODE_DOWN) errors for devices from the aliased acnet nodes for
CLX58. There are several (
STCLRF) nodes which are aliased to
CLX58E?). What had previously worked was for the Erlang front-end to just run as the default node
CLX58, not the normal
CLX58E. That let things work. Now, we get 1 -42 errors both from the aliased node devices (e.g. T:1LQID, T:SQSYID) and from devices which are on
CLX58E itself (e.g. U:GRWD8A, T:CDLPCC).
When we run the Erlang front-end as default node
CLX58E, the devices assigned to it (U:GRWD8a) work, but the others (aliases) still don't (
[1 -42] errors).
Rich suggests that having Charlie restart the consolidating java node will clear this. But that seems like a non-ideal temporary solution.

Just a comment to add: the forwarding-requests-to-the-default-node feature was a hack to get OACs to work with virtual nodes. This feature wasn't advertised because it was never intended to be permanent. Charlie has been slowly moving the Java world over to
acnetd and when that's complete, this feature was to go away.
The better, long-term solution is to break your front-end into five. The
mk_acsysfe script would make this easy to do.
