Environment

Endura WS5000- All versions

Cause

Information regarding how to configure Alarm Arrays is needed.

Resolution

The name of the alarms and other configuration requirements can be modified within an Endura Workstation in the same manner as a native Endura alarm. These are configured under the Devices tab within Setup in the WS5000 software. Click on the filter icon in the top left hand corner to expand the filter options. Change Filter Types to Device Type. Under the Device Type column, select Alarm Array. Choose the desired Alarm Array from the Device list on the left side of the screen.

It may be necessary in some cases to restart the alarm service on the system manger. To do so perform the following steps:

  • Using Endura Utilities SSH in to the SM5000 (LL#13089)
     
  • At the root prompt of the SM5000 type:
     

/etc/init.d/virtualalarmarrayd stop {ENTER}

/etc/init.d/virtualalarmarrayd sart {ENTER}
