File | Advanced | Upgrade
This command starts the Upgrade Wizard tool. This tool is used to compare the software level of the control unit and expansion modules within IP Office systems against the software level of .bin binary files Manager has available. The Upgrade Wizard can then be used to select which units to upgrade.
The list area shows details of IP Office systems found by the Upgrade Wizard. The Version column details the current software each unit in the systems is running whilst the Available column shows the version of .bin file Manager has available for that type of unit (a – indicates no file available).
The check boxes are used to select which units should be upgraded. Upgrading will require entry of a valid name and password for the selected IP Office system.
The Validate option should remain selected wherever possible. When selected, the upgrade process is divided as follows: transfer new software, confirm transfer, delete old software, restart with new software. If Validate is not selected, the old software is deleted before the new software is transferred.
Sorting the List
To sort list of IP Office systems click on the Name or IP Address column headings.
Search for Particular Systems
The default address used by the Upgrade Wizard is the address shown in the Manager title bar, which is selected through File | Preferences. If the unit required is not found, the address used can be changed.
Enter or select the required address in the Unit/Broadcast Address field.
Click Refresh to perform a new search.
Changing the .bin File Directory Used
The directory in which the Upgrade Wizard looks for .bin files is set through Manager's Binary Directory setting. This can be changed using Files | Change Working Directory or File | Preferences | Directories. It can also be changed directly from the Upgrade Wizard as follows.
Right-click on the list area.
Select Select Directory.
Browse to and highlight the folder containing the .bin files. Click OK.
The list in the Available column will be updated to show the .bin files in the selected directory that match IP Office units or modules listed.
