Post upgrade

  • Validate Login PI settings within the site to verify previous configuration has been retained
  • Copy-in custom workloads previously set aside into <PI_install_directory>\Login PI\target\workloads

For upgrading to 1.0.4 only:

  • Upgrade the PI_logon.cmd file in \\<AD>\NETLOGON to point to where the logon script is now, which is \\<PI_server_share>\target\scripts\logon.cmd

A new target logon script needs to be implemented:

  • Navigate to the Login PI Management Console settings (via cog icon in upper-right of interface); open page to create new AD Script
  • Accurately fill out form then generate and save the script.
    • If there isn't a custom AD structure then this script can safely be executed
    • Or if there is a custom AD structure then 1) open the AD script with a text editor, 2) locate the portion that creates a new target logon script, and 3) copy and paste this into <PI_server_share>\target\scripts\logon.cmd overwriting previous contents and saving the file
  • Restart jobs and verify target testing functionality and results generation/presentation
