[WANDL] Changes in setup mode for "Sites" are not saved



Article ID: KB33950 KB Last Updated: 15 Mar 2019Version: 1.0

When trying to add/modify sites in setup mode (using GUI), even when changes are confirmed, they are not saved. Closing and re-opening the network does not help either.

The workaround is to manually modify the site.x file to your desired changes. This file can generally be found under /u/wandl/data/.network. Sometimes it may be found under /u/wandl/data/.network_plan.

  1. Make sure /u/wandl/data/.network contains file site.x

    [wandl@wandl-92 ~]$ ls -l /u/wandl/data/.network/
    -rw-rw-r--  1 wandl staff   506 Jan 16 09:34 site.x
    [wandl@wandl-92 ~]$
  2. Make sure /u/wandl/data/.network/spec.x file contains the line "site=site.x"

    [wandl@wandl-92 ~]$ grep site /u/wandl/data/.network/spec.x
    [wandl@wandl-92 ~]$
  3. To save the changes to sites in GUI:

    1. Open network in Offline mode and make any desired changes to "Site".
    2. Save the changes for Offline mode to any desired location.
    3. Copy the site.x (from location saved in Offline mode) to /u/wandl/data/.network
    4. Close the network and open the network again in Online mode and you should see the updated changes for Site on the GUI.
