    1.   Access the APE product page (below). Download and install APE into the new server/computer. 2.  Transfer the license from the old APE server to the new one. Technical Support requires a copy of the computer signature from both the old and new servers. 3.  Start the APE Configurator. 4.  Select Settings > License Activation (see figure 1). Figure 1 License Activation page. 5.  Capture a screenshot of the “Active license” page from both the old and new server computers. Email a copy of both screenshots to The screenshot is recommended to ensure the Computer signature will be exactly as indicated on the page. 6.  Back up the database. Locate the tool “DbiTool”, located in the folder C:\BOSCH\Access Professional Edition\PE\bin. Open the tool and click the “Export all”  button (see figure 2). Figure 2  DbiTool page 7.  Manually back up the database and configuration folder. Locate the folder C:\BOSCH\Access Professional Edition\PE\Data (or locate the folder/path as modified during the initial install). Manually back up the “Data” folder. 8.  Import the configuration files and database to the new server computer. Manually paste the content of the “Export” folder contained within the previously backed up “Data” folder to the new server, in the same path: C:\BOSCH\Access Professional Edition\PE\Data\Export. The data folder also contains Formulas, Layouts and Pictures. Copy these items and add to the new server computer as needed. 9.  Use the APE configurator to import the configuration file. All Access PE configurations are stored in the folder “Data\Cfg”. The active configuration is called Active.acf.  Open the APE configurator, and click the   button. Choose the backed up Active.acf file. Activate the imported configuration using the   button. Propagate the active configuration to the controllers by pressing the   button. The dialog below appears. You can choose which configuration is sent to the controllers. Figure 3  Active Configuration page * Note: Before propagating the configuration to the controllers, make sure the old APE server is disconnected from the network. Import the database using the “DbiTool". Open the tool and click the “Import all” button. Note: The new APE server configuration will not be operational until the new license key is received from Technical Support and then added to the new APE server.

    This article explains the integration of B/G intrusion panels in AMS.   The integration of B/G intrusion panels AMS requires the installation of the intrusion RPS API version V2.1.25920 or later only applies to AMS 3.01 version of AMS and for version 3.0 the API version is V2.1.25454, also the earlier AMS 3.0 version RPS cannot be installed on the same PC. For small installations it is possible to install AMS and RPS on the same computer, with the following prerequisites: • AMS has never been installed on that computer • SQL Server database has never been installed on that computer • You install RPS before AMS The RPS API must be installed on the same computer as the RPS tool. The RPS tool is needed to configure and manage the communication with the B/G panels. The RPS API conveys communications from AMS to the RPS tool, which then communicates with the panels. SDK communication to the B/G panels is integrated in AMS. No separate installation is required, but Mode2 and a Automation Pass-code must be enabled on the panel   Step-by-step guide   1. Install the RPS API on the RPS Computer 2. Make sure that these processes are running on the RPS PC 3. Set the Automation Device and change the default password. While you are in RPS, also set the date and time of the intrusion panel. After you finished the work in RPS, load the configuration to the panel and disconnect the RPS from it. 4. AMS > Configuration > Panels > RPS API configuration menu Set-up the connection parameters to connect AMS to RPS API "rpspc" is the name of the PC on which RPS and RPS API are running User name to login to RPS - Default: Admin Password to login to RPS - Default: 1111 Press to test the connection Test is successful: 5. AMS > Configuration > Panels > Panel administration menu Define: To which division of AMS the intrusion panel shall belong to Whether you want the panel users managed from AMS (Under administration) Whether you want the panel to be the part of MapView The access data to the panel 6. AMS > Configuration > Panels > Panel administration menu Define the access data to the panel Use the password you defined in RPS for the Automation Mode 2 Device connection 7. AMS > System data > Authorization profiles for panels menu: Create authorization profiles and assign area(s) of panel(s) to it. Define to which user group of the intrusion panel will be this Authorization profile assigned 8. AMS > Personnel data > Card menu, Intrusion tab: If the selected Cardholder is planned to be a Intrusion panel user as well, then select the checkbox and define the necessary data. Only the Pass-code the Language are mandatory, the rest can be left blank 9. It is manddatory that the date and time settings are properly set at the intrusion panel and synchronized with AMS Server 10. Until the RPS is connected to the intrusion panel, AMS cannot synchroniza with the panel.
