About installing GV STRATUS VTR Ingest/GV STRATUS VTR Controller devices with SiteConfig

With the installation instructions in this section, you use SiteConfig from a network connected control point PC and remotely install/upgrade software simultaneously on your system devices. This is the recommended process for software installation and upgrades. When installing the GV STRATUS application or the GV STRATUS Control Panel application, if SiteConfig installation is not possible, you may install manually on the local PC. You must uninstall before installing.

If SiteConfig was not used for your previous software install, do not use the upgrade instructions in these release notes. Instead, use the SiteConfig Migration Instructions. Before you upgrade software using SiteConfig, each of your product devices must be migrated to become a SiteConfig managed device. This includes installing SiteConfig support on the device, manually uninstalling any and all components, and qualifying the device for communication with SiteConfig. These instructions are in the SiteConfig Migration Instructions. Also refer to the SiteConfig User Manual or SiteConfig Help Topics.

The upgrade instructions in this document apply to the following devices:

  • GV STRATUS VTR Controller

To upgrade software using SiteConfig, you must first have SiteConfig set up for system management and software deployment in your facility. These upgrade instructions assume that you have already done that for your GV STRATUS VTR Ingest and GV STRATUS VTR Controller. Then add your product devices to the SiteConfig system description that you are using for your software.

Note: To upgrade GV STRATUS VTR Ingest/GV STRATUS VTR Controller to version 11.8.x.x (and above) in SiteConfig, you are required to select the previous version of the package and run the uninstallation process of this version first. Then select GV STRATUS VTR Ingest/GV STRATUS VTR Controller package 11.8.x.x (and above) to install.

The following installation tasks provide information specifically for the upgrade to this version of software. Read the information in these sections carefully before attempting any upgrade to software.
