Perform a system backup of EcoStruxure BMS servers

Before changing the operating system or replacing the computer, it is strongly recommended that you archive the historical data and back up the EcoStruxure BMS servers to preserve the current data and configurations. For more information, see System Backup .

Return licenses when migrating

If you plan to migrate EcoStruxure BMS server to another computer, you must return all licenses to the License Activation Server.

For more information, see Returning an EcoStruxure Building Operation Software License .

Stop Enterprise Server Windows service

Use Software Administrator (or the Services tool) to stop the Enterprise Server Windows service. For more information, see Stopping the Enterprise Server Windows Service .

Stop License Server Windows service

If you are upgrading the License Server, stop the License Server Windows service. For more information, see Stopping the License Server .

Replace operating system or migrate Enterprise Server

Complete one or more of the following tasks:

  • Replace the operating system on the computer where the Enterprise Server is installed. Refer to the Microsoft Windows documentation on installation or upgrade instructions for the supported operating system. For more information, see EcoStruxure Building Operation Software Requirements .

  • Migrate the Enterprise Server to another computer.

To install or migrate the Enterprise Server on the targeted operating system or computer, you need to continue.

Install EcoStruxure Building Operation Software

The following flowchart shows the tasks for installing the Enterprise Server and other Build Operation software on a replacement operating system or computer. Related information can be found in the sections after the diagram.

Restore Enterprise Server database

In WorkStation, log on to the Enterprise Server and restore the server using the previously saved backup set. For more information, see Restoring the EcoStruxure BMS Server .

Verify TCP protocol and server communication

Use the Communications properties of the Enterprise Server to verify that TCP is set as the communications protocol for the automation servers and Enterprise Server, and the servers are communicating with each other. For more information, see Updating Communication Parameters .

Verify control and monitoring operations

Use Software Administrator (or the Services tool) to verify that the Enterprise Server Windows service is running, which ensures that extended trend logging restarts. For more information, see Starting the Enterprise Server or Enterprise Central Windows Service .

In WorkStation, verify that the control and monitoring operations of the Enterprise Server are functioning normally according to the guidelines specified for your site.

Back up the EcoStruxure BMS servers

Perform a mass backup of all the EcoStruxure BMS servers. For more information, see System Backup .

Install WorkStation Language Pack

If you are using a language pack for WorkStation, install the language pack.

For more information, see Installing a Language Pack .

Install WebStation Language Pack

If you want to use a language pack in WebStation, install the language pack and change the language setting in WebStation.

For more information, see Adding a Language in WebStation .

For more information, see Changing the User Regional Settings .

The process of changing the operating system or replacing the computer is now complete.
