Before Starting the System Update Utility

The System Update Utility is a feature built into the System Administrator that lets you update your DSX system software. This utility is an alternative to using a CompactFlash card to update system software.

    • The latest version of the DSX System Administrator.
    • DSX System Software 01.01.27 or higher.
  2. Download the DSX System Software file to which you want to update.
    • To get the latest System software, go to the DSX Download Center at left and click System Software.
    • Download the system software zip file to a convenient folder on your PC hard disk.
    • Do not unzip the software file.
  3. Connect your PC to the telephone system (USB only).

      The System Update Utility transfers (uploads) the zip file from your PC to the system.
    • Phase 3: System Update
      The system updates its software. After the update completes, the system resets and operates normally with the new software version.
  8. After the system software update completes (about 8 minutes), the T1/PRI PCB may automatically load updated firmware (which takes an additional 6 minutes). The LEDs on the T1/PRI PCB alternately flash during the firmware upload.
