- Alarm Acknowledgment.
'A Multiple DCN Rings / Multiple DPSS MOD300 System ( Version 14.2/XX..Multibus /SC Controllers based Systems) is allowing alarms to be acknowleged globally throughout the multiple DCN Rings and not 'globally' on a single DCN Ring level as the intended use.... granted, there are some export /import of signals among the various DPSS's of the inter-connected DCN Rings...but the Alarm Acknowledgement is not limited to these signals and is rather general and global involving all alarms on all interconnected DCN Rings where 'Global Acknowledgement' is enabled in the Environment.... Note that' Local Acknowlegement' setting in the Environment will prevent this from happening but then every console within the same DCN ring has to be acknowleged one after the other as the case normaly is... This is causing some inconveniences at the customer site...
