First of all configure the application
18.104.22.168.Migration to the new DREAM UPDATE
This function is required to prepare the existing database to be managed by the new DREAMUpdate software. This operation must be done only once for database.
THERE ARE SOME REQUIRED OPERATIONS TO BE DONE BEFORE THE MIGRATION
– No one should use the DreamCen software during the processing
– First make a FULL DATABASE BACKUP
(using the DB Management software “es SQL.Management Studio”)
Note: Migration can be used also to do others operation on the database like transform MSSQL in MySQL database but these use actually are not supported.
From this section you can create and restore backup and send to DREAM central control and backup service.The new dreamupdate permit also to automatically upgrade the dreamCen software with a scheduled task (see next section)
INCREMENTAL -> MAKE INCREMENTAL BACKUP
FULL -> MAKE FULL BACKUP
AUTOMATIC -> MAKE SYNC BACKUP WITH DREAMAPI SERVICE
RESTORE -> RESTORE EXISTING BACKUP
SEND -> SEND BACKUP(S) TO DREAM FTP
CLIENT UPDATE -> UPDATE DREAMCEN CLIENT PROGRAM
Task Scheduler is present in all the various versions of Windows and helps the user to schedule the automatic execution of many tasks. In this case we configure two scheduled task both for the UPDATE of dreamCen software and for BACKUP and send. YOU CAN DISABLE the OLD dream scheduled tasks for the same purposes.
CREATE THE TASK TO BACKUP THE DATABASE ON THE CLOUD
VERIFY THAT THE TASK IS ENABLED
CREATE THE TASK TO AUTO-UPDATE THE SOFTWARE
1.2.Missed appointment control
With DREAM 5 we use a little software, we can schedule to run every day, to check missed appointments.
Unzip the MissedApps.zip file in a folder like c:\missedapps\ and set the correct server ip address and database code in the Option.xml file (open the file with notepad (!) and change the ip 10.10.0.3 with your server ip (or better use 127.0.0.1 if the task run on the same server of the dataase) and the database name (DREAMPRG_ZZ) with your Database name)
The Option file MUST be in the same folder of the CemMissedApps executable
Finally create a Windows Scheduled task that run the CenMissedApps.exe software each day.
1.3. Setup and upgrade
– Download the right version and language (for example Malawi centers have to download the _Malawi version)
– FC_XXXX_XX_EN.zip for English
– FC_XXXX_XX_EN_Malawi.zip for Malawi
– FC_XXXX_XX_FR.zip for French
– FC_XXXX_XX_FR_Camerun_and_Guinea.zip for Camerun and Guinea Conakry
– FC_XXXX_XX_PT.zip for Portuguese
– And so on …
Identify your SYS_PATH_DOC folder in configuration. If not configured is the right time to do it !
- Be sure the SYS_PATH_FOLDER is a network folder (like: \\yourservername\dream_srv \DOC\ ) and NOT a local folder (like: c:\dream_srv\DOC) or your clients cannot access the flowcharts and attachments. Be sure all the user can read and open files are in this shared folder from their PC.
- UNZIP the file FC_XXXX_XX….. in the SYS_PATH_DOC folder ( \\yourservername\dream_srv \DOC\ in the above sample) add or replace the “comuni” and “Flowchart” folders
