Manufacturer Reason
for Recall
While merging exams in a test instance, merges carry forward in the production system, when the middle tier is configured to the wrong IP address of the Centricity Exam Manager. When a current and historical exam are opened at the same time, the system asynchronously tries to access the operation specifying how each image should be grouped, causing random image-series grouping errors.
