Overview

This document outlines the steps needed to update an existing Access It! Universal.NET v9 system to a later version of Access It! Universal.NET v9. The update process requires that a backup of the Access It! Universal.NET databases be performed prior to any update.

Upgrade Precautions

  • After the upgrade is performed, all SCP panels may be set as Uninstalled. This is done so that the dealer may install the SCPs one at a time allowing for a controlled system-wide reset. While uninstalled, the Access It! Universal.NET service will continue to process all panel events. Any database updates made while uninstalled will be processed after the panel completes the firmware download and reset.
    The SCP panels will be disabled only if there are any database changes or firmware updates between the starting and ending version of Access It! Universal.NET v9! See the SCP Automatically Uninstalled KB for more information 
  • Regional Server installations must use the Database Configuration Utility and drop all SQL replication Publications and Subscriptions. These should be rebuilt after upgrading.
