Virtual Datapoints being turned off by mango
I've got datapoints in a virtual datasource. They're used for forwarding control commands to a remote mango unit. I also update tags when i do this. Because of that I've got a $interval which checks the datapoint details every ten seconds.
However the problem I'm having is mango is disabling these points. I need them to work, and yet cannot set them because mango keeps disabling them.
Any thoughts as to what can be causing this?
I know I'm using 3.5.6 but I am not in a position to upgrade at this time.
EDIT: I did check the logs and I found an old publisher not going to anywhere (the unit died) using the same points. Data was regularly getting discarded. Could that be the reason??
EDIT 2: Nope, points still got disabled... customer's getting frazzled, i'm equally confused...
When you say updating the tags, do you mean changing them and then saving the changes? A point will get temporally disabled when it is saved
Yes but that doesn't explain why they stay off. Yes when a button is pressed, I update tags and use the $update() command. After some time I end up having to go back into the system to re-enable the points.
