Use the tool provided when FSM server application is installed, to manage export/import of configurations.
Please note: This tool is only for configuration backup and does not include logs and history.
With FSM 5.6 the database.xml structure was slightly changed and FSM 5.6 is supporting only the new database.xml structure.
This is leading after upgrade to a loss of the configured symbols (only the symbols, not the content of the devices configured on the floor plans).
Therefore after upgrading from older FSM version (e.g. 5.2) to 5.6, the already configured symbols of sensors on maps are not shown correctly, they are shown are dots/circles.
Please note: If before executing the file provided below the application was opened and the sensor properties were edited by approving > at that step the symbols changed to the default symbol and the previously configured symbol cannot be recovered.
If the Item "Panel" is e.g. 1-1.1.1 respectively 1-1.SI_PANEL.1,then this item is the Group item of the panel system status items e.g. 1-1.1.1-1 till 1-1.1.1-10.
Most of these system status items have NORMAL as value after startup, others can have ON, e.g. items from Condition Monitoring.
To silence all NAC's of one panel (FPA-5000/Avenar) from the map in FSM
Insert a sensor on the map of FSM
Under sensor properties choose:
Add symbol: FIRE_Panel_FPA_BG
Driver Instance: the panel / compound where the FSM is belongs to
Address-> e.g. Panel 1-10.1
! Please pay attention: there are other “Panel” possibilities to choose. Please do not choose Panel 1-10 (Communication)!
After inserting the settings click “ok”
At the map when you right click the panel symbol you will get the commands as shown below.
If there is a fire alarm, you can right click at the panel and then click at “silence on”.
Please be sure, that then every NAC which is belonging to this panel is “silenced”.
Additional: there is also a command "silence scope" which then has the effect, that the whole scope will be silenced.
