    Installing updates and service packs 3.1 Introduction 3.1.3 Differences between maintenance and a software update with the redundant OS server Maintenance In this context, maintenance is considered a task performed when the OS server is deactivated and in which the OS software version is not changed. This may involve cleaning the OS server hardware, for example.
  • Page 12: Checking Plant Configuration

    Installing updates and service packs 3.2 Checking plant configuration Once all OS clients with their new software version have been connected to the standby server, the master server will be deactivated and its software updated. When the redundant servers and the OS clients have the same software version, the OS clients can be distributed between the master and standby servers with the help of the preferred server configuration.
