Now the license is activated.
New functionality is added and can be used by the system.
There could happen some occurrence were you should return your Dicentis wired license.
Reasons can be for example a hardware error, Windows software problems or an Windows upgrade of the Dicentis server etc…
The new INT-TXO Integrus Transmitter integrates the Integrus system in the DICENTIS via OMNEO. Old Radiators and Receivers stay the same and existing equipment can be used in the DICENTIS now with the new INT-TXO transmitter. It is usable from software version 4.20 onward and is made for DICENTIS only usage at the moment. But it will be open up in future for the usage of 3rd party devices which than are planned to be managed with the Dante Controller software. Please visit our product page for more information.
The DICENTIS Server has a own log file system which is working in the back ground and is called LogDump.
If something went wrong during the operation it will be reported in there. In many times this is a good tool for error analysis as well as fault detection and will often requested by the Technical Support for pre-analysis.
In the next Step-by-step guide it will be shown how to extract the LogDump file form DICENTIS Conference System.
For some reasons it could be necessary that the the Technical Support needs this logging to analyze what could cause the trouble. This guide will help you to get through . This topic can as well be found in the Configuration Manual of Dicentis wireless page 34.
You need at least a user with access right: Configure
Logging export is not available for tablets.
The log file can only store about 1200 lines! That means you need to extract the logging after the error or symptoms occurred before the system overrides the logging line. It may be to late if you extract the logging after some days.
If you are facing unknown problems with your DICENTIS wired system and you need advice from the technical support they will ask for a lot of different information.
For that reason this little program was created to make the extraction of all needed log files, system settings and other data more easily.
DICENTIS installation log files are needed for further analysis for Technical support team if the software update failed or later some errors occurred.
Below it is explained how you can extract DICENTIS installation log files.
In some cases the log file from the Dicentis Server become too big and it has to be cleared to reduce the size from time to time. The normal size is between 10MB and 50MB depending on the operation time but it should normally not grow over 100MB. If it does exceed, is most likely a fatal error within the DICENTIS system which produce a lot of logging each minute.
It could be possible that the driver of the Network Card (3rd party Server) to become intermittent and the log file to grow to 300MB. In the next steps we will show you how to clear the logging.
When using a fixed IP addresses in a multi-subnet Dicentis system, certain settings need to be made for the system to function well. If the settings are not made correctly, the system can stop functioning & disconnect from the server.
Trouble mixing and matching older & newer Dicentis cable assemblies, cables and connectors. The problem is usually that the cables and connectors do not fit together correctly or it's very hard to put them together.
If something is not working well in the Microsoft Windows Server it will be recorded in the Event Viewer (log files) and can indicate where the error occurs.
This is a good tool for the Technical Support to figure out if there are considerable issues in the Windows and other programs.
The Conference protocol is a platform-independent protocol which is based on Web-Socket technology to enable scalability of the DICENTIS system and it connects with the DICENTIS web server.
This is a small introduction to test if the web socket is basically working and if the connection is right.
Network Docent scans and visualizes the network environment and is giving simple insight into all devices and cable connections of a network based system. This Software can help you to identify network errors and find quick solutions to fix them. You even can extract an Network snapshot which is an important log file for the Technical Support.
If RSTP is not enabled in an looped system packets will loop infinitely exhausting all available bandwidth and could cause an overflow of MAC address tables.
In the end it will result in a broadcast storm and breakdown of the entire network.
The DetectDevices script was developed to give a fast feedback on connection problems or any other failure within the DICENTIS wired system. It will simulate a device and give out an advanced log file which can be used to track sporadic or normal connection problems. The technical support will provide this tool to get a deeper look into some issues if needed.
