Topic: Microphones remaining offline after QHost reboot
I have a strange problem in the UK with a CM system that is not polling PCU microphones at start-up. The Qhost reports all microphones as being offline. However the microphones themselves believe they are online (steady network LED).
The only way to bring the microphones online is to carry out a page from each microphone or cycle the power to the microphone and/or CAB8i or disable/re-enable the switch port for each CAB8i.
All of these force an event and after which the CM recognises the PCU.
System has 37 microphones, 34 PCU1's and 3 PCU2's
CM version 4.01b (not confirmed), rest of project here 4.01b (this project design is not mine, but i'm investigating problem)
Microphone versions are
PCU1 - 3.20
PCU2 - 2.10
After restarting the servers i'm getting this message every so often
ca485srv CABNW1 1 216 No RX activity
ca485srv CABNW1 1 216 CABS configured in ratc for CA485
When I generate a page i get this message (typical)
ca485srv CABNW1 1 216 Found addr 7 on MAC blah blah blah
ca485srv CABNW1 1 216 Ignoring type 0x4f sent by offline 7
ca485srv CABNW1 1 216 Sending who's there instead
ca485srv CABNW1 1 216 PCU1,3.20 ACTIVE
