Deprecation of 32 bit releases of CCS and uNIS

In order to provide improved support of current platforms, we have made a decision to deprecate 32 bit Windows releases of CCS and uNIS. For the last few years we have been delivering CCS exclusively for 64 bit platforms, and the 32 bit uNIS was never used. This will enable us to provide maintenance and […]

32-bit builds of TSC are deprecated

Due to low interest, we have decided to stop maintaining the 32-bit TSC build. The only reason to keep it was the CMDVS(1) data source that is not used anymore. Please note that the CMDVS2 data source plugin for C-STS FE equipment is available in the 64-bit TSC.The daily build has been removed from the […]

Time input is now consistent across the system

Time input interpretation has been harmonised across the system. You may need to double-check your sequences for correctness of time arguments to TOPE commands.When a time argument is passed to a TOPE command (e.g. tcsend or utope::processtmpacket), the system will interpret it in the following order: ISO time raw archive time (nanoseconds from the 1970 […]

Improvements in the MIB loading process

The system’s behaviour (TM&TC) generally remains consistent with previous versions, but the system is more rigorous in checking the loaded contents, especially where duplicates appear after merging several MIB’s.You are not obliged to clean up duplicates immediately, but you will see warnings. These warnings are correct, and you should clean up as soon as it […]

Text and numeric curves are allowed to have the same name

Therefore, remember to set a proper PCF_CATEG depending on calibration curves.The new release enforces that when a curve is textual (TXF/TXP) PCF_CATEG must be set to “S”, and not “N”. MIB ICD 6.9 page 46 specifies this.The reason is that SCOS2000 allows curves in CAF and TXF to have the same name, distinguished only by […]

Stored procedure permission with MySQL

The treatment for an error “Execute command denied for routine”.It may happen, when MySQL is the configured database, and TMIDX is getting large, that user ‘ccsuser’ doesn’t have sufficient privileges to execute stored procedures. Some users encounter this problem after a CCS upgrade, and ‘ccsuser’ had not previously been configured with these privileges.In this case, […]

TC stage and status can now be compared numerically

It is now possible to compare TC stages and states numerically.This can be useful to check when a TC has reached a stage or state “greater than or equal” to an expected one.It allows you to write TOPE scripts that can efficiently detect when a stage or state has passed before you checked it. Previously […]
