Delete Device Templates
SmartStruxure site with LonWorks
Need for site to delete Device Template.
Some templates are preloaded with the software, and if the particular device does not have a template that is supplied, you can upload a XIF file. This is done by selecting File/LonWorks import/Device Template and then importing the XIF from the manufacturer. Deleting these templates is the task we are speaking of here.
The Device Template cannot directly be deleted from Building Operation Workstation now, but they can manually be deleted from the PC installed Enterprise Server. When you import the device templates, you must understand that it should be in Enterprise Server or in Automation Server.
2. Delete the two files of template (its name is Pidxxxxx, and xxxxx are the numbers or letters in parenthesis behind device template's name that you can look at in workstation). Then you have deleted the device template.
3. After deleting the templates, you may need to restart the Enterprise Server.
Note: in newer releases the path has changed slightly, e.g. For V1.8.1:
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Schneider Electric StruxureWare\Building Operation 1.8\Enterprise Server\db\UDT\pu\public\lon2\devicetemplates
