Facts and Changes

'STB NIP2212'

Causes and Fixes


The following is recommendation on when a power cycle of the NIP2212 may be required to
recover from a fault condition that is shown in the status word.

  • A power cycle of the NIM may be required if, the bit for condition 'D9' (internal failure) is set in the
status word as described in the online help. 'D9' will get set when there is a global error. (i.e., if a
mandatory module is missing.)
  • Depending on the situation, some global errors may require a power cycle to restart the NIM or
island after the error condition has corrected.
  • Bit error conditions 'D8' and 'D10' may or may not require a power cycle.

Note: If the error condition can be corrected without power cycling the NIM, the error bit will get reset.
