Incorrect use of the MOD Importer can cause lost objects in the Control Structure
When using the MOD Importer to bring MOD tags into the 800xA system a dialog will appear suggesting that the user "Restart all MOD300 Service Group Event Collectors". This is included to avoid the possibility of alarms occuring that are associated with objects that exist only under the Lost and Found object.
The dialog can be ignored if the correct order of importing is followed.Symptoms:
When you are creating the MOD Control Structure for the first time the manual tells you not to start the Service Providers until after the import is complete. This avoids the described problem.
When you are adding loops after the initial import then you must do things in a specific order to avoid the problem.
Create the loop in the Control Builder.
Import the loop using the MOD Importer
Perform a LoopLoad
This ensures the object is in the Control Structure before it becomes operational in the MOD controller. Any alarms will then be correctly associated with the correct object.
