About this task
The Transfer CAF and Attributes to Controller option through Trunk Utilities allows you to transfer an open CAF file to multiple devices on the same trunk and mass edit attributes using attribute templates and read/write functionality. Access this utility from the Tools menu by selecting Trunk Utilities > Transfer CAF & Attributes to Controller. This menu option is only available when a CAF is open.
With the Transfer CAF and Attributes to Controller option through Trunk Utilities, the application files are transferred in parallel, which is more efficient than the serial application file transfer in the Transfer CAFs to Multiple Controllers option.
After selecting the devices and working with the attribute template, the utility transfers code to the devices in the following order:
- Boot Code Transfer: Transfers Boot Code to all selected devices and updates the transfer status.
- Main Code Transfer: Transfers Main Code to all selected devices and updates the transfer status.
Application Code and Attribute Transfer: Transfers application code and attributes to all selected devices and updates the transfer status.
During the transfer process, you can use the View Log and View Status options to see the transfer progress.Note:
The Force Main Transfer and Force Boot Transfer check boxes allow you to force a Main Code or Boot Code transfer to all selected devices.
See the Transferring a CAF and Attributes to Devices steps and Trunk Utilities - Transfer CAF and Attributes to Controller Wizard screens sections for information on the Transfer CAF and Attributes to Controller and how to use it.
