About upgrading GV STRATUS Rundown 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.

Note: Do not use the upgrade instructions in this document if upgrading with SiteConfig for the first time.

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 device:

  • GV STRATUS Rundown Server and Client

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 K2 SAN. Then you add your product devices to the SiteConfig system description that you are using for your K2 SAN.

Note: Do not attempt to upgrade software incrementally across the devices of a K2 SAN while media access is underway. Online software upgrading is not supported.

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.
