Here is today's summary of NHC computer operations:
--- Pablo


1.) The Cable TV remains inoperable on the upper right west wall  
situational awareness display in TAFB and the large center TV on the east  
wall. NCO ticket open. Comcast coming in today to take care of this.

2.) Large monitor on EPAC desk, LX3 has a faulty video connector, and can  
cause video display issues is not treated tenderly. Doug G taking a look at  

3.) The automated danger graphic shows "CYCLONE" for Potential Tropical  
Cyclones. Is this correct? Matt Sardi to look into it.

4.) Security Camera display in WFO Miami and TAFB ops areas is frozen to a  
time from yesterday during daylight with "video loss" red banner showing on  
all 10 cameras. A new NCO TT was opened.

5.) AC Cooling Unit #3 in the server room had an alarm beeping last night  
and again tonight when we came in. Alarm display said "Short Cycle Comp.2".  
Cleared the alarm by pressing Enter. No issues noted with the temperature  
on the display - WIlliam Notified.
1.) The 21Z advisory graphics did not launch on 8/26. Chris Mello was able  
to troubleshoot the issue and get them released. If any issues remain,  
Chris to work with Matt Sardi on this.

2.) On 8/26 it was reported that the in-house JHT genesis tool continues to  
not function correctly, as the UKMET output is not being included both on  
its own as well as in the consensus. Craig Mattock to investigate.

3.) The SHIPS guidance for Harvey the 26th at 00Z did not print. Looking on  
the ATCF ftp site, the file for Harvey was available but it was an empty  
file. We had to resubmit guidance for Harvey and AL92 (twice) as the SDM  
could not see the initial submission. Issued appears to have been resolved.

1.) RFC 3674 to allow wpse account access to opah scheduled for Wednesday  
this week.

2.) RFC 3675 - Add NHC printer to NCEP Mail Relay - scheduled for wednesday  
this week. This change will allow a printer (, or  
carmenrohp.nhc.noaa.gov) to be able to scan to email with  
mrelay.ncep.noaa.gov port 25. This worked until recently.

3.) RFC 3647 - NHC Netapp snapshot policy changes scheduled for Wed weather  

4.) RFC 3651 - NHC Fix for Single Point DNS and NTP Servers scheduled for  

5.) RFC 250 - Automated "Key Messages Graphic" - postponed due to Harvey.  
But will be taken care of as soon as possible.
