Remote Operation Centers provides the flexibility for the collaborators to take shifts remotely. To be a certified ROC one must fulfill the prerequisites documented in "DocDB-9968-V1":http://minos-docdb.fnal.gov:8080/cgi-bin/RetrieveFile?docid=9968;filename=ROC_documentation.pdf;version=1. This documentation provides a full explanation of the hardware and software requirements, a step by step installation procedure and how the certification process works.

h2. Communication protocol during shift transitions

15 17 Stefano Tognini
Since remote shifts are different from shift performed at the Control Room, the hand-on and hand-off must be performed in a different way. This is a quick step by step guide of the protocol. A more detailed explanation about these steps can be found in "DocDB 9842-v1":http://minos-docdb.fnal.gov:8080/cgi-bin/RetrieveFile?docid=9842;filename=NuMIRemoteShiftProtocol-R2-1.pdf;version=1.

h3. Hand-on procedure
19 8 Arthur Kreymer
20 9 Stefano Tognini
* The oncoming remote shifter calls the current local (or remote) shifter before the end of the current shift to discuss the status of the experiment. It is strongly recommended that the oncoming shifter also checks the Logbook and the Memopad. (Ignore this step if there was no previous shift, but checking the Logbook and MemoPad before the start of the shift is strongly recommended and could avoid some problems.)

* The oncoming remote shifter calls the MCR to inform that a remote shift is starting.

* The oncoming remote shifter must add a note in the Logbook with the shifters name and the ROC informations (location and phone number).

* The oncoming remote shifter must ensure that the remote shift contact information is prominently displayed in the MINOS+ Control Room.

29 1 Arthur Kreymer
30 9 Stefano Tognini
* Oncoming local (or remote) shifter will call the current shifter (local or remote) before the end of the shift.

* The current shifter must state in the logbook that the current remote shift has ended.

* **service**: start an RC or OM application
41 18 Stefano Tognini
** Command: **@./rms service [om|rc] [near|far]@**
42 18 Stefano Tognini
* **numimon**: start the NuMIMon/JAS3
43 18 Stefano Tognini
** Command: **@./rms numimon@**
44 18 Stefano Tognini
* **announce**: display a message on minos-om indicating that a remote shift is in progress
45 18 Stefano Tognini
** Command: **@./rms announce [your name|kill]@**
46 18 Stefano Tognini
** Important to say that this will display a default message based on the name given on the command line and the number defined on the variable **@RMS_PHONE_NUMBER@**. The command will connect on minos-om and the message will be displayed via xmessage. The kill command will log in and remove the message.
