Issues upgrading Automation Servers (AS, AS-B, AS-P) connected to an Enterprise Server (ES) from versions prior to 2.0.x to a version that is 2.0.x. ES and one Automation Server will upgrade but no others connected to that same ES will upgrade and will show an error while attempting to download the new software.
EcoStruxure Building Operation
- Building Operation Automation Server v1.9.x
- Building Operation Enterprise Server v1.9.x
If the Automation Servers within the ES environment are not uniquely named, and/or are the same name as the ES, an error will be received if upgrade is attempted stating "Deploy upgraded database failed".
As found within the Enterprise Central section of the 2.0 Release Notes, "All servers must have unique names".
*NOTE* Renaming the Automation Server will break any paths to that Automation Server, as such they will need to be corrected.
Follow these steps to address this issue:
- Prior to upgrading any devices within the environment, check for and find any servers with non-unique names
- Detach the Automation Server (with the naming identical to the ES or any other server) from the ES
- Rename the Automation Server with a unique name
- Correct any binding path issues
- Reconnect Automation Server to the ES
- Upgrade the environment to 2.0.x
