When upgrading from standalone installations to floating installations, the existing client does not need to be uninstalled. There are a couple of configurations as described below:

Client Application connection to New Network Installation

A network server installation is made and the dongle is connected to a network server location.   

  1. Network Server installation instructions are here:  Install Network Server.
  2. Edit the following files from the installation directory: C:\Program Files\Innovyze\xpstorm2019.1.3_x64
    • Replace the existing stand-alone license file (XCF) with a network-enabled xcf license file.  
    • Edit the swmxp.ini file so that MODE is NETWORK rather than blank and the SERVER line is set to the Network Server's IP address or qualified domain name.  Replace 192.1.1.250 with the server name.

[NETWORK]

MODE=NETWORK

SERVER=192.1.1.250

STATUS=OK

Client and Dongle do not change

An existing standalone installation needs to be converted to network installation to support Remote Desktop connections. 

  1. Run the Sentinal Driver installer  https://innovyze-us01.s3-us-west-2.amazonaws.com/XPSWMM/Sentinel+Protection+Installer+7.6.9.exe 
  2. Edit the following files from the installation directory: C:\Program Files\Innovyze\xpstorm2019.1.3_x64

[NETWORK]

MODE=NETWORK

SERVER=127.0.0.1

STATUS=OK

Both the XCF and INI file can be found in either application directory:

  • C:\Program Files\Innovyze\xpstorm2019.1.3_x64
  • C:\Program Files\Innovyze\xpswmm2019.1.3_x64

Validating XCF License is Floating

Use XPDiagnostic to validate the XCF file is a Network Configuration as shown in the red square below:
