This section describes how to determine if your computer or OWS has GPL processes on it by searching for these processes on the PMI network map. You can use the PMI network map or Windows Explorer to perform this search.

To use the PMI network map to review systems with GPL processes related to the NCM:

  1. Log on to the OWS.
  2. Single-click the associated system to select it on the Network Map.
  3. Select Go To on the top tool bar of the network map and select Process to launch the pop-up split panel window (Figure 1). This window allows you to view the GPL and OC Basic processes that reside on the Disk Side (computer) and the Field Side (NCM).
  4. Repeat Steps 2 through 4 to review all systems that have GPL processes related to the NCM with the VMA1832 controller.

To use Windows® Explorer to review systems with GPL processes related to the NCM:

  1. Start Windows Explorer.
  2. Locate the GPL file folder for the NCM with the replacement VMA1832 controller. The GPL file folder is located in <FMSDATA><network name>\GPL.
    Note: In Figure 2, an OWS is shown in which the FMSDATA path is set to the C:\FMS\DATA\JCI-HQTR\GPL network path.

    You can view all GPL files that may be affected by the installation of the VMA1832 controller in the GPL folder (Figure 3).
