About this task

The Transfer CAFs to Multiple Controllers option allows you to transfer multiple CAF files 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 CAFs to Multiple Controllers. This menu option is only available when a CAF is not open.

The application files are transferred in series, which can take up to five times longer than the Transfer CAF and Attributes to Controller utility option which transfers application files in parallel.

After selecting the devices and specifying the CAF and attribute template to load, the utility transfers code to the devices in the following order:

Procedure

  1. Boot Code Transfer: Transfers Boot Code to all selected devices and updates the transfer status.
  2. Main Code Transfer: Transfers Main Code to all selected devices and updates the transfer status.
  3. Application Code and Attribute Transfer: Transfers application code and attributes to all selected devices and updates the transfer status.
    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.

    In some scenarios, you may be required to transfer the Boot Code to the device before proceeding with the workflow.

    During the transfer to device process, you can use the View Log and View Status options to see the transfer progress.

    See the Transferring CAFs to Multiple Controllers steps and Trunk Utilities - Transfer CAFs to Multiple Controllers Wizard screens sections for information on transferring CAFs to multiple controllers.
