Archiving termination of the system list
A description of this resolution:
- Archiving of the system list (SL)
The following general remarks are to be considered "mnemonic" archiving the system list.
For archiving the system list flexible disk types Maxel MF2-HD recommended by ABB should be used as far as possible. Using different types may cause temperature problems in the case of long archiving times.
On principle, preformatted flexible disks have to be used.
With a possibly "not properly" inserted floppy disk (message Floppy error), a manual access (e. g. DIR) can be effected as 1st access. Also if the flexible disk has to be exchanged there will be sufficient time left for a DIR access since only every 5 min. it is checked if a new flexible disk was inserted.
Other error messages:
4.1 Channel defective
a) Termination of formatting after done twice message Channel defective of mass memory unit and the first additional information archiving device (with 710A floppy).
The message appears after approx. 1 min. The error is eliminated from V7.2D .
b) Furthermore, termination with Channel defective may occur at high capacity utilization of operator station.
Cause: SL is archived via CPU of operator station. The mass memory CPU waits for execution within 30 sec. With high capacity utilization of operator station this time will be too short.
The error is eliminated fromV 7.1H und V 7.2D. The waiting time has been increased.
4.2 Format error
a) 1st message Format error => archiving continues (see TI 30/70-0116).
New is: Format error and 1st additional info 0501.
Remedy: MM Stop/Start
"Archiving termination of the system list" resolves the following:
- System handling
Due to various errors archiving of the system list is frequently discontinued.
Different error messages have been documented according to present findings.
This applies to SW >= V7.0.
The underlying cause is:
- Problems with archiving of the system list
The causes of error may be different kind which therefore do not require uniform handling.
