Unhelpful Exception message from xmlrpc_commander
From Bill Badgett:
I'm trying to revive the TPC RO at D0, but i'm getting the following in the tpc log file: %MSG-e tpc01_xmlrpc_commander: Starting 14-May-2020 12:12:44 CDT Booted xmlrpc_commander.cc:479 Exception when trying to start the run: Unknown exception %MSG Could someone please add more information to this exception? Is there a common error that's happening?
Looking into the code, this is coming from a catch-all block, but there are several common exception types that it is missing (boost::exception and std::exception come to mind), which could report more information. Additionally, the error message itself is very unhelpful, and should be improved.
