Freelance v9.2 SP1 hardware update
We have in my company a DCS system with AC800F, running with Freelance V9.2 SP1 under Windows 7 32bits. We have 4 computers (one server and 3 stations) running every day since at least 8 years. So I need to upgrade the hardware as soon as possible but not software version.
Could you tell me if I change the hardware, I don't need to reload the controller firmware ? I can change a computer, one by one, in production environment, it will be transparent for the users ?
Thanks for help
no need to reload the controllers. It will not be fully transparent, as you have to shut down every computer a certain time.
What is the purpose of the server? Trend server? Stopping the trend server will affect all Operator stations.
Are hardware locks used for licensing?
The biggest issue could be that you most likely have to stay on Windows 7 even with new hardware, please check the Freelance release notes.
