Diagnosing the problem

When a situation is acknowledged and de-acknowledged, and is currently under the Reopened status.

There are two ways to perform an acknowledgement:
1. Quick Acknowledge - this works on this reopened sit
2. Acknowledgement - this is how you can setup a timeout

Whenever the second one attempted on a Reopened event, even though the situation is opened/active, the following error is generated:

KFWITM016E The event is closed and can no longer be acknowledged.

Resolving the problem
