You have several firmware versions in the UMS. Your collection of clients and profiles has become large and confusing. You are losing track of assignments and connections between these elements.
You want to minimize the variety of firmware and profiles to simplify processes. You just want to see what you need.
The firmware, clients and profiles are interdependent. So, what is the best way to proceed?
The following are the main steps for reorganizing the UMS:
Downloading the new Firmware
For more information see Best Practice: Firmware Update.
Moving Clients to the New Firmware
Find out, how many different firmware versions you really need.
Upgrading all clients to the same firmware:
View Name: Show all UD LX devices with old firmware
Rule: Product name is like (!reg!)(?i).*Universal Desktop LX.* AND Firmware version is less than 5.04.100
Moving Profiles to New Firmware
Examine your profiles and decide which of them are relevant for the new firmware. You have three possibilities you can do now:
If the parameters of the new firmware match the parameters of the old version, a profile will work anyway. If they do not match, these parameters will be ignored.
Deleting old Firmware, Clients and Profiles that are no longer required
To finally clear up the UMS you now should delete obsolete objects.
For more Information see UMS Manual: Neue View erstellen.
Do you have also obsolete Views, Jobs, Template Keys? Delete them as well.
For Template Keys the Profile Relation is shown in the setting mask.
TextWe advice to make a back-up of the UMS, before deleting any components.
You can also use the UMS recycle bin for the deleted objects.
