Patience is a virtue.   ;-)

Remember this when it comes to all the other metrics -- settling to 
good stability, in particular, which may take quite a while (weeks to 
months) since the OCXO has been off for so long.  My suggestion is to 
put it in an out-of-the-way place where the temperature is stable and 
there is little to no risk of it being physically jostled, and forget 
about it for a month.  Then see where you are.  (I mean, really 
forget it -- don't monitor it, don't look at the lights -- because 
those will tempt you to play with it, which will make it take even 
longer to settle.)
