(adsec) change_elevation_limit script upgrade test

Software: XZ


DX ASM had a failure on April 26 08:55 UT. The cause is that the changing of elevation limit had failed. The changing of elevation limit failure happened when changing the limit for AdamHousekeeper, while the limit changing for AdsecArbitrator was succeed. Note: the same change_elevation_limit script was successfully executed on SX ASM side.


  • Identify the command execution is failure or not:
    • checking the outputs of the elevation limit change commands
    • read back the current elevation limits
    • check the current elevation limits
  • Give the user clear info about the commands results (failure or not)
  • Give instructions if the commands fails
  • To make the script more reliable, executing the two limit changing commands in the same "terminal".
