Parameters > Citect.ini File Parameters > Alarm Parameters > [Alarm]Ack


Determines whether CitectSCADA acknowledges current alarms on startup. The alarms are only acknowledged at startup if you have a single alarms server and no save file configured.

If you have a primary and standby alarms server, when an alarms server starts up it gets the current alarm states from the other alarms server. Because the alarms are in their current valid states, there is no reason to acknowledge the alarms at startup.

If you do not have a standby alarms server and you have a save file configured, the alarm states are recovered from the save file. If the alarms are recovered from the save file, they also are not acknowledged at startup.
