One of my Thunderbolts is drifting

After several weeks of seeing the two sine waves solidly locked, now one of my TBs is drifting.

Both instances of LH show six sattelites green, and discipline mode normal.
One shows RMS 2nS, the other 38,000+

What's wrong here?

Try the !h keyboard command to hard reset it back to factory defaults...

Nothing has been changed in the settings for weeks.
Is that the only way?

Hi

If one shows 38,000 ns error, it’s no longer locked. It may *think* it’s doing ok, but it most certainly
is unlocked. What is the DAC voltage doing? ( in some cases the DAC takes a long time to get to
a limit and trigger an error flag).

Ok, I did the reset, and it's much happier now.
I'll keep an eye on it.
