Device Manager Upgrade and Hard Drive Requirements
StruxureWare Building Operation using Device Administrator for upgrade of Automation Server
A question has been raised following the training regarding the ability to upgrade 32 AS databases simultaneously, what storage space does the off server upgrade need, since it is now possible to upgrade 32 AS databases at once this could impact HDD space required, what about RAM, what about bandwidth requirements when downloading the converted DB to the AS?
Device Administrator 1.3.0 Update (12 Mb) was available Feb 1, 2013. This add-on significantly reduces the time it takes to upgrade an Automation Server from 1.2 to v1.3. It cannot be used for any other upgrade paths. For more information, please read Product Announcement PA-00249, and Release notes StruxureWare Building Operation v1.3 - UPDATE which is available on The Exchange Download Center.
Please take into consideration the number of Automation Servers to be upgraded and count 200 Mb of disk space on the Computer Hard Drive per Automation Server.
