EMC HOWTO - Change Shift Schedule

  Procedure to change Shift Schedule

The Shift Signup/Schedule page is generated by a script. Direct changes to the webpage will break down the system. The following procedure needs to be followed in order to make proper changes to the webpage.

From babaremc account,

  • Go to where the webpage is:
    • > cd /nfs/farm/babar/emc/cronjobs/shifts/EmcShifts/html
  • Replace the current schedule with an empty one:
    • > cp shifts2008.html.save shifts2008.html
  • Go up one directory to where the actual shift entries are:
    • > cd ..
  • Make the wanted changes to the request file:
    • > cp ShiftRequest2008.archive ShiftRequest2008.save (just to be safe!)
      > emacs ShiftRequest2008.archive (study the format of the file before making changes)
  • Erase remains of old request related file:
    • > rm ShiftStats2008 (shift counter file)
  • All done! Now, place the new request file where the cron job will pick up and reconstruct the schedule:
      > mv ShiftRequest2008.archive ../ShiftRequest2008
      (IMPORTANT: the command is "mv" and not "cp". There shouldn't be ShiftRequest2008.archive file at this point)
  • Wait 5 mintes for the cron job to reconstruct the new schedule and check it
  • Contact if needed: Jong Yi
