    If the software is used on a mixed protocol network, can it repackage modbus to bacnet?

    In addition I sent you question about volume licensing for software only to your email address

    As always, thank you for the fast response Joel. When I go to the add data sources page, the mango you are reports a server error and a licensing issue. I created an additional account with a new email address and installed a a clean copy of the software. Still reports server error when I try to add data sources

    Edit=
    I do see modbus is available to add data points but bacnet is not in the drop-down menu. Perhaps I have not added the modules correctly?

    Can anyone tell me how to enable 3 bacnet points in demo mode? Before the 3. Upgrade it was simple or I could purchase the bacnet module 4 $50.

    I am doing a demo installation using the free license and I keep getting and error. Url redirects to http://.../ui/server-error and the screen shows....

    Any thoughts?

    **edit
    This occurs when I try to add data sources through the new UI.

    @mihairosu Just disable it in sources.list on your hardware. Phil has said they wont be servicing from this repo anymore.
    comment out the line

    someuser@mangoES1234:~$ sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list

    Ok. So I will comment it out of the repo sources.list until you publish otherwise? Easy enough. Thank you, Phil.

    Was there an alternate distro repo setup? mangoautomation:9902 is no longer valid?

    @Jared-Wiltshire My apologies. I thought I was continuing a discussion with Phil concerning the new UI. I will, of course, post in the appropriate place in the future. Thank you.

    BTW, the new interface is amazing. I never thought I would be a fan of angularjs but you have sold me.

    I also found the scroll bar after adjusting my resolution. My hardware and not the software.

    I have found two issues with the dashboard designer that are pretty minor. CSS fixes are likely the solution.

    1. When assigning the XID to a point source for any html object the dropdown list is too narrow to display usable name data. I have to cut and paste from a second screen.

    2. while designing in dashboard the visual port for graphical design window doesn't have a horiz scroll bar.

    Which css file assigns these features and I will modify them? is there an overrides folder for it?

    OK. I understand now. The pages you're referring to are the legacy Mango interface... the dropdowns on those pages. If I understand correctly, these are the pages generated by .jsp and use Dojo as they are pre-AngJS..

    No problems at all.. pages respond well, drop downs populate quickly, allow selection and redirect based on selection.

    For historical reference, I am using:

    ii  lightdm                               1.10.3-3
    ii  lightdm-gtk-greeter                   1.8.5-2
    ii  task-desktop                          3.31+deb8u1
    ii  task-xfce-desktop                     3.31+deb8u1 
    ii  tasksel                               3.31+deb8u1 
    ii  tasksel-data                          3.31+deb8u1 
    ii  xfce4                                 4.10.1       all
    ii  iceweasel                             52.2.0esr-1~ all 
    

    I omitted a bulk of the output from

    dpkg-query -l

    but I am happy to send it.

    @phildunlap I haven't been far enough into it to publish a dashboard with dropdowns. I am using a simple heads up display for onsite personnel. I am starting on the facility manager's home screen now so I might have some insight later next week. Can you describe the issue?
    ...menu lists weren't populating? selectively populating? wouldn't populate fully?
    ....wouldn't trigger on hover/mouseover?mousedown?

    I will watch for it if you can describe it.

    Also, I have been testing GUI performance using the Iceweasel(MozFirefox for arm7) browser... no limitations so far. I will let you know when the Dashboards are complete.

    Let me know if you try booting an ES without the .scr file. I read that it works but haven't had time to try it. The benefit is that any edits (even incorrect ones) wouldn't require the mkfile prior to boot and would omit a crucial and fatal mistake by field techs.

    In addition, I found two sources that might be of use.

    1. A generic kms helper file that expands the default resolutions to virtually any display rather a defined resolution. I don't believe that there are any licensing concerns.

    2. After trying multiple bootabe images for a recovery sd card... I found a very basic core image construct that worked perfectly. It allowed me to mount the eMMC partition and edit->make the boot.scr.

    I am happy to share links if you feel its appropriate or I can email them to you for review prior to making them available. I don't want to create a possible security concern on someone else's machine and I am not a Linux expert; just a deployment/ commissioning tech.

    @phildunlap I actually solved everything. It was the helper line in the boot.scr and my lack of experience with the arm architecture. After reading the source material you provided and building a platform from the ground up on a similar device I was able to recover the eMMC in place. Thank you.

    16:9 ratio screen works well now and I am exploring different browser solutions to avoid the firefox issues discussed. I feel that I created most of the problems thru inexperience and frustration but I am happy to share any details on the recovery. I am sure others will not have a similar experience.
    One question, if I may? Why use the boot.scr instead of just a boot.ini? The literature I read says that the .scr isn't necessary with the XU4 as it can build/load from the .ini file when no .scr is present.
    The entire boot mechanism is foreign to me and I have had no call to use the mkfile command before. My failure came from editing the .scr directly without "remaking" it. I tried after the boot.ini changes weren't propagated and I caused the boot failure which is quite a problem to overcome. Is it a legacy carryover due to the hardware update? Just curious.

    netboot capability for recovery would be a great addition but I know you guys work very hard on the product to ensure quality. Just a suggestion. Maybe I will work on that at a future date and send you anything interesting.

    Thank you for your expertise, supplied tech input and help!

    Phil, apparently I have a corrupt boot,scr file? I have been thru the XU4 forums top to bottom. I attempted to use an sd to rescue boot it and then access the eMMC but no joy. Is there a "hardware key" feature built into the MangoES expansion board? I have solved the display problem but now my tinkering may have caused a new problem. Can I buy a factory eMMC 8GB and field install.

    You have my apologies and I chalk this all up now to my inexperience with the XU4 hardware. I have everything else under control. Thanks for the assistance.

    Thanks, again, for the assistance Phil. I found that article and had been putting off trying that method. I will get on it right away. Have you had any success with using a netboot feature set. I may try to install one once I get it bootable again.

    Thank you
