Description

We are trying to upload a geometry to the configuration database. As a starting point we decided to upload to either rgma (old test CDB server) or preprod, as it is clear we don't know what we are doing. I should say we tried several permutations on the URI without success. Email trail below:

Hi Chris,

So you know and before I forget, this was my last communication with Antony prior to leaving.

Also, I have the latest version of the geometry uploaded to ".maus_release/files/geometry/upload". Executing the "upload_geometry" command that we were running will post the files in that directory to the CDB. Probably an unnecessary point but I thought I should tell you that the files are there and that they are legitimate.

Cheers,
Ryan

Subject: RE: issue with geometry upload from miceonrec01

you can use http://preprodcdb.mice.rl.ac.uk:8080
NB at some point this will switch to port 80

This is a new machine and I'm not sure if it is visible externally yet, the plan is to open port 80 to the outside world

Regards
Antony

Thank you. That is helpful.

Another question: Mat suggested using the test server "rgma19.pp.rl.ac.uk<http://pp.rl.ac.uk>". Do you know if this server is indeed in operation.

Thanks again,
Ryan

cdb.mice.ac.uk<http://cdb.mice.ac.uk><http://cdb.mice.ac.uk><http://cdb.mice.ac.uk> is the default server, not the default upload server, by default you get read only access. Matt has a machine in the control room that he uses for upload. It should be configured to use configdb.micenet.rl.ac.uk
