Setting environment

Setting Saradna

If sardana is not yet set up run

$ Pool
  • enter a new instance name
  • create the new instance

Then wait a while until Pool is started and in a new terminal run

$ MacroServer
  • enter a new instance name
  • create the new instance
  • connect pool

Next, run Astor and change start-up levels: for Pool to 2, for MacroServer to 3 and restart servers.

Alternatively, terminate Pool and MacroServer in the terminals and run

$ nxsetup -s Pool -l2
