Updating IP address in a PM571-ETH CPU with SD Card
I'm struggling with PM571 (legacy) and other model that have 1.x Firmware:
It's possible to update the user program and the IP settings if I create an SD with online procedure (for the IP settings the PLC create their own files PM5X1_00.CFG and PM5X1_00.DBM in the SD card).
But is possible to do this without the PLC and olny offline with PS501 V 1.x ??
thanks a lot .

I have never tested this, but IMHO it's possible. You not have one "spare" cpu to test it?
You can try to prepare the boot project in SD card, in Automation Builder you can use this function, not in PS501.
Alternatively, you need to create the boot in SD card inside cpu, extract SD, modify the adress of IP the cpu and reload in SD the modified files
Hope this help you
Hi Flavio ,
thank you but I have only the PM571-ETH (legacy) ad it works only with Control builder Plus and I ask hot to do for this serie (also 581 and 591 that I havn't).
I know that for newer CPUs the SD card structure has CONFDATA folder and there you can set you net configurations.
