    Uses Windows Task Scheduler to run daily. Eliminates hang-ups to Aloha POS by a hung batch.

    Supports Aloha EDC Single Processor, Split Processor and Multi-Index configurations.

    Supports a dedicated Aloha EDC Server.

    Supports Aloha EDCProcPath feature.

    System Pre-C heck function verifies System is setup and ready for Batch to Settle Batch Settlement Pre-Check function verifies Aloha EDC is ready to for a Batch Settlement. Anything from POS Off to the presence of a SETTLING marker file is enough for the program to abort the settlement or fix the problem before continuing.

    Program counts and records the number of TXN files in the Batch. If not TXN files, the Batch Settlement aborts. If one TXN file is discovered, that TXN file is inspected and if it is a Settle TXN file, it is deleted and the Batch Settlement is aborted.

    Program instructs Aloha EDC to start the Batch Settlement and records the start time.

    Program monitors the progress of the Batch Settlement every 30 seconds (up to 10 minutes)

    Once the Program detects that the Batch has settled, it records the finish time.

    If the Batch does not settle within the monitoring period, an error is declared and a NCR Command Center Alert is generated. The program exists with errors.

    Program includes a Real-Time Display in the event the End-Use is logged on to Windows and is using the Server.

    If a Batch Settlement fails the Program r reset Aloha EDC back to it Pre-Batch state. It stops POS in EDC, it deletes the SETTLING marker file, It deletes the Settle REQ and HLD files, Then it sets POS back to On. They site can continue to authorize cards until the Batch Settlement issues is resolved.

    When a Batch Settlement fails: an NCR Command Center Alert is created to notify Service.

    Batch Settlement actions are written to its own error log in the Aloha TMP folder called Debout. AlohaEDCSettle.Txt to enforces accountability and aids in troubleshooting.

    Aloha EDC Auto Settle Daily Operation

    The Aloha EDC Auto Settle Utility is diesnged to run unattended every day when a business is closed.

    It is started using a Windows Scheduled Task. It can also be manually started either by Running the Windows Scheduled Task or st

    arting the program directly.

    Aloha EDC Auto Settle Utility does show a Progress Screen when running, in case a manager be watching and is logged on.

    Daily activitiy is written to the Debout.AlohaEDCAutoSettle.Txt for accountability and troubleshooting. This is located in the Aloha

    TMP folder

    The Aloha EDC Auto Settle Utility starts by running a pre-check on EDC:

    1. Is EDCSVR installed as a Service? If no, abort.

    2. Is the EDCSVR Service Started? If no, it writes this to Debout.AlohaEDCAutoSettle.Txt and exit the settlement for today. 3. Is EDC POS On? If no, it writes this to Debout.AlohaEDCAutoSettle.Txt and exit the settlement for today.

    3. Is there a "SETTLING" marker file in the Processor folder? If yes, it deletes it the continue checking and trys to settled (again). 4. Is there a dangling REQ or HLD file in the EDC folder? If yes, it writes this to Debout.AlohaEDCAutoSettle.Txt and exit the

    settlement for today. Something is wrong.

    5. Are there TXN files for the Processor? If no, it writes this to Debout.AlohaEDCAutoSettle.Txt and aborts. If only one TXN file, checks to see if it si SETTLE TXN file. If yes, deletes the TXN file and abots as there are no cards to settle. Otherwise, writes the

    number of TXN file to the Debout.

    When the date stamp of the SETTLED file has NOT changed after 10 Minutes, the Aloha EDC Auto Settle Utility assumes that

    something is wrong and the batch has not settled. It then executes the Rollback Protocol., then creates a NCR Command Center Alert. The utility writes the batch settlement failure details to the Debout.AlohaEDCAutoSettle.Txt.

    Rollback Protocol:: This is executed when a batch settlement fails. It's goal is to return EDC to a Pre-Batch Settlement state so the

    site can continue to authorize credit cards while the batch settlement problem is researched and resolved. Specifically it will:

    1. Stop the EDCSVR Service. 2. Remove any REQ or HLD file in the EDC folder.

    3. Start the EDCSVR Service.

    Troubleshooting AlohaEDCAutoSettle-Installer.Exe, AlohaEDCAutoSettle.Exe, AlohaEDCAutoSettle2.Exe or

    AlohaEDCAutoSettle3.EXE can generate a false positive with some Anti-Virus programs.

    The Compiler used to create this program has been known to trigger "false positivefalse positivefalse positivefalse positive" alerts from some Anti-Virus (AVG in particular) programs. It may say the program contains a Trojan.

    Resolution: Placing the Aloha folder on the AV program's Exception Folders list, and running the program inside the Aloha

    folder provides a work around on this issue.

    Running 2 unattended BSG Utilities concurrently can result in both not executing.

    Resolution: Stagger running of BSG Utilities.

    AlohaEDCAutoSettle.Exe generates a Windows Kerne32.Dll message.

    Resolution: This has been traced to other installed programs conflicting with the utility. Unless the culprit can be isolated and

    removed, a workaround is to trigger the autosettle using Winhook.

    Program will not run.

    Resolution:

    1. Make sure your are logged on as a Windows Administrator if installed. 2. Make sure the Windows Scheduled Task is linked to a Windows Administrative User Account.

    3. Make sure Local Security Policies allow the Windows User to install and/or run programs.

    4. If an Anti-Virus program is installed, make sure the install folder is excluded. 5 Make sure Domain Policies are not blocking it from running.

    6. Makle sure Firewall Policies are not blocking it from running. 7. Make sure it is not already running.

    AlohaEDCAutoSettle-Installer.Exe or AlohaEDCAutoSettle.Exe appears to stay on the

    first LOADING INSTALLER PLEASE WAIT (1 of 2) screen for a long time.

    Resolution: This utility does an aggressive interrogation of the OS using Microsoft tools when first started. It appears that either the Processor/Memory installed or Security Programs installed slow this process, thus causing the delay. It ultimately continues.
