1. Preliminary Note

It is assumed that you start from an archived TSF module, e.g. emotsf.
If you need to make modifications to the ISF or some of the TSFs, follow the instructions in Section 2, then install as in Section 3.
To generate an IP from an existing module with no modification, go directly to Section 3.
Be sure to notify the configCtrl officer (P.LeSaux) of the changes.As a reminder, the list of authorized filters, grisms, etc is located in the Instrument Signature File, config/default.isf
Make sure that the IP file created has the exact format described below. If the ohsls version is not in the name then the execution times will not be calculated properly in p2pp and will not be displayed in ot.

2. Modification of the Instrument package


3. Offline creation of the instrument package

4. Online Installation the Instrument Package at telescope

After unpacking the ZIP file on the DHS, start p2pp under the instmgr account with any program ID/pwd.Otherwise some directories/permissions will not be created and the p2pp under visitor account would later fail.

5. Publish new IP

6. Install the IP on offline systems

This will be taken care of by LS-Archive once the above notifcation is made.
