Cause

There can be various reasons for the upgrade failing. At this moment there are two known issues:

1: Issue with specific LonWorks devices such as the T-Stat T7300

2: Too complex or long list of email addresses in notification objects

Resolution

Solution for issue 1: Issue with specific LonWorks devices such as the T-Stat T7300

Contact Product Support and ask for hotfix 1.5.0.4801


Solution for issue 2: Too complex or long list of email addresses in notification objects

1: Make a search for all email address objects searching for "EmailAddress" - You can import this search object to do it.

2: Copy all rows to this Excel sheet

3: Check the "Count" column - it counts the characters in the "Property value" column. There's no exact max character count as it also depends on complexity of the addresses, but a good indicator is if the count is over 270.

4: In SmartStruxure, delete the content of the objects having more than 270 characters.

5: Carry out the upgrade (if the upgrade fails, go back to step 3 and delete the content of all objects where the count is 260)

6: After upgrading copy the property content from the Excel sheet back to SmartStruxure
