Server State Buttons

The Server records a 'snapshot' of it's current state every 10 seconds and records the info as #DAT files in the \Server folder#
SERVER_STATUS#DAT
SERVER_CRITICAL_STATUS#DAT
SERVER_CDU_RTE_STATUS#DAT
SERVER_CDU_HDR_STATUS#DAT

This contains the system data and the CDU route informaion#

Whenever you press the 'Last State' button, the Server reads these files and applies the content to the internal structures#
Therefore if you have to restart the Server mid flight you should immediately press this Last State button to return to the previous situation#
You must press it within 10 secs of the server starting or it will be overwritten with the current state#
#FYI: After doing this, you may find that you need to switch the A/P OFF and ON again to reset it into the correct mode##

The 'Initial State' button loads the settings found in the INITIAL_STATE#INI
This is probably used more if you don't have a hardware overhead connected and you want to set certain switch positions on startup#
You can press the Initial State button anytime or set the entry in the SERVER#INI : LOAD_INITIAL_STATE_ON_STARTUP=1
