CAEN Error messages and possible solution(s)

Error Message Possible Cause Possible Solution
CAEN Parameters Wrong: RDWn on ch 40=200 not 0 The CAEN Server has not been told to configure itself yet, or the CAEN "HV_config_file" settings don't match actual values set on the power supply. Run the CAEN Configuration Client to reload the parameters. (This does not affect the power supply but re-configures the CAEN Server.) If the error persists, determine which is wrong--the power supply or the file "HV_config_file" in the configuration/caen directory of DAQPackage.
CAEN channel names are given as a bunch of question marks. The CAEN Server has not been told to configure itself yet. Run the CAEN Configuration Client to reload the parameters. (This does not affect the power supply but re-configures the CAEN Server.)
