    Thanks Craig

    The device we are polling is TCP. Why do you ask - do you have an idea?

    Hi

    We are using v3.5.6
    We are looking at reading values from a PC that sits between mango and the end devices and buffers the data. So the mango will read values and timestamps from modbus registers on the buffer PC. I have worked how to read values into a modbus data point and have a separate data point in a meta data source that includes a script that sets the timestamp of the secondary data point (the meta one).
    I'm wondering if it's possible to achieve this without having to create the meta data point. ie set the timestamp of the modbus data point when it's read.

    Thanks

    This is working now. I think the main issue was simply that 'DHCP' needs to be upper case. Other things I noticed were that the script takes about 1 minute to complete, the LED's do NOT go off (even after about an hour) and the mango needs to be rebooted (it does not need a reboot when changing to a fixed IP address).

    Hi

    I'm running mango 3.5.6

    I am creating a set of queries for SQL Data Sources. I'd like to know if it's possible to include the value of a data point in the query. The concept is like a parameterised query. eg use the value of a data point in a where clause - like "Select "First_name from Employees where empno = [DataPointx.value]".

    Hi

    I have Core version = 3.5.6

    I would like to allow some users access to use the Data Sources page in the old UI, but I don't want to grant them SuperAdmin permission.
    I tried setting the permissions for the menu item (under 'Administrator') to 'User' and tagging the user account with 'User'. This allowed them to see the menu item, but they saw a "you do not have permission to see this page" type error message when clicking on it.
    I then went in tot Administrator -> System Settings -> Permissions and set "Data Source Management Permissions" (at the very top) to 'user'. After this, they could view the page, but couldn't see any Data Sources or Data Points. They can see all the Data Points from the "Data Point Details" or "Watchlists" pages (new UI). All Data Points have Read Permissions = 'user'.

    Is there any way I can allow a user to search for a data point using the old UI Data Sources page without giving them full SuperAdmin access?

    Hi Philip

    I'm back from 4 weeks holiday and following up on this. It occurred with several mangoes in a box of 10, so unlikely to be battery dislodgement. I have powered up a few mangoes that have been sitting around a while to reproduce the issue, but so far they have all held their date/time. Have you had any other reports of mangoes losing their date/time?

    Is there any way to upgrade to a specific version? eg 3.5.6?

    Thanks Philip
    I should have mentioned that I did use hwclock -w to set the hardware clock. A power disconnect of a couple of days has then lost the date. We will try new batteries. Do you have some idea of how long the backup batteries should last? I expect the total time disconnected from power is the most important measure. I would have thought it would be a couple of years?

    We have recently had 2 fairly new MangoeES's whose hardware clock and system time have reverted to Jan 2000 after they have been unplugged for a day or two. We are planning to try replacement of the button cell battery that presumably powers the hardware clock when power is disconnected. Maybe we have a batch with a bad batch of backup batteries? Any thoughts?
