MCenter Control Room (MC-CR) x3726 or x8871

* Call the Main Control Room (x3721) at the start and at the end of shift. This is required, and pleasant.

* If the beam goes away for more than a few spills, look for Accelerator Alarms in ACNET (a default window). If the problem persists a few minutes, and you see nothing about it in the MCR elog, (or you just really want to find out more), call the MCR.  They're friendly, though they may be super-busy.

Any time day or night, please call experts if you are in need of help and the answer is not provided below.

h2. *Getting started*
49 152 Jason St. John
50 146 Jason St. John
* If you cannot ssh to FTBFLX machines: Get a kerberos ticket for yourself: @kinit <yourKerberosPrincipal>@, then ssh ftbf_user@ftbflx01 (or whichever machine...).
51 1 William Badgett
* If your Kerberos username and password are good, but you can't log on to FTBFLX[NN] machines:  Have someone who CAN log into those machines heck that your kerberos principal appears in @~ftbf_user/.k5login@ in the LArIAT section.

h2. *Trigger and DAQ system*
54 152 Jason St. John
55 1 William Badgett
* If the trigger crate has been power cycled and the V1495 is not emitting triggers: [[Reset1495]]
56 159 Jason St. John
* If the DAQ cannot initialize, and you suspect the configuration XML files were changed recently, check their formatting. [[XML Checker]]
57 161 Jason St. John
* If the DAQ is having trouble talking to the crates, try issuing the command @lariatReset 0 1@ and trying again.
58 83 Jason St. John
59 152 Jason St. John
h2. *Wire Chambers*
60 152 Jason St. John
61 162 Jason St. John
* If the wire chambers are acting strangely: "remote power cycling instructions":https://redmine.fnal.gov/redmine/projects/lariat-online/wiki/Communicating_with_the_wire_chambers including mini-DAQ and telnet interface.
62 135 Jason St. John
* If the wire chamber system is skipping spill numbers, it may be a high trigger rate (> 30 k per spill).  The wire chamber controller may still be reading out the hits from the last spill.

h2. *TPC Wire Noise*
65 168 William Badgett
66 168 William Badgett
* Anecdotal evidence has shown that analog noise on the TPC wire readout channels can be 
67 169 William Badgett
alleviated by power cycling the TPC electronics: ASICs and Warm Receiver/Drivers
68 168 William Badgett
* You can remotely power cycle the TPC electronics via the web site http:://lariat-pdu02.fnal.gov 
69 168 William Badgett
logging in as user "ftbf"   Further informations can be found on the white board in MC-CR.
70 168 William Badgett
* This mechanism is controlled by a smart power distribution unit (PDU) located under the 
71 168 William Badgett
TPC electronics power supply near the cryostat in the enclosure.   Due to electrical safety 
72 170 William Badgett
rules you must *NOT* use any of the other outlets on this PDU.  Do *NOT* remove the protective 
73 168 William Badgett
outlet covers at any time.
