GRIDSMART Remote Update Procedure
|Use the following procedure with caution. In the event a problem occurs during the update, an onsite technician may be required.|
While the processor is updating, the Processor will place the intersection into Recall.
Step 1. Download the latest GRIDSMART software update from GRIDSMARTCloud.com.
Step 2. Extract the update package to a location on your computer, USB flash drive, or network.
Step 3. VNC into the target Processor. On the Processor, navigate to C:\aldis\update.
Step 4. Copy the correct .bin file from the update contents (from the extracted update package) and paste it onto the desktop of the processor.
If updating a v4 system, copy the bin file .../aldis/update/C3154D3B-02BC-4343-823C-4CD9CB722E3A.bin
If updating a v5 system, copy the bin file …/aldis/update/D4412EAB-1E12-441A-B2BA-33C5DB6B5280.bin
***The .bin file has everything necessary for the update. You do not need to copy the two folders or GRIDSMARTClientInstaller.exe.***
Step 5. Copy the .bin file from the desktop and paste it into C:\aldis\update
This example assumes updating a v5.x or later Processor. So, the file “D4412EAB-1E12-441A-B2BA-33C5DB6B5280.bin” is used.
Select the D4412EAB…5280.bin file and copy/paste it to c:\aldis\update on the Processor through VNC.
The below image shows the D4412EAB…5280.bin file copied to c:\aldis\update folder on the Processor.
Once the .bin is copied into the c:\aldis\update folder, the update process will begin automatically. The VNC connection will be interrupted briefly during the update but should return once the update is completed and the Processor reboots.
