Migrate V8i Projects to CONNECT Edition
The information below details how to migrate your V8i datasets and projects to the new OpenUtilities Substation CONNECT Edition.
New OpenUtilities Substation configuration variables have been introduced that can be set in any configuration file to achieve the same purposes that the setup.xml served in the V8i versions. See the Configuration Variables topic for a complete listing.
In addition, you may wish to review the Configuration Files topic to learn where these variables can be set to configure the software.
In Substation CONNECT Edition, these folders have been moved under a Workspace that corresponds to the electrical standard you wish to use which are found here:
C:\ProgramData\Bentley\OpenUtilities Substation CONNECT Edition\Configuration\WorkSpaces\Substation ANSI-IEEE Example\Standards\Substation\
C:\ProgramData\Bentley\OpenUtilities Substation CONNECT Edition\Configuration\WorkSpaces\Substation IEC Example\Standards\Substation\
To migrate your V8i dataset to CONNECT and deploy that dataset to all users within your organization you should refer to the Deployment Guide - Substation CONNECT Edition for details.
Updating the Project Database
An administrator can execute the update script file (SQL_UpdateDB.sql) provided with the software on their SQL Server Substation project database. The script file can be found here:
C:\Program Files\Bentley\OpenUtilities Substation CONNECT Edition\Substation\Electrical\SqlScripts
Refer to the Update a Project Database topic for details using this update process.
