TPP Administrators: please pay attention to the DSAM upgrade instructions below.

It is highly recommended that TPP be upgraded to version 4.8 prior to upgrading DSAM firmware to version 4.1. 

DSAM Firmware upgrade support:

DSAM 3.7.3 (and earlier versions) for XT and non-XT (original) meters:

  • Deployable by all TPP versions.
  • Exists as an XML and ZIP file with the same name, except for the file extensions

DSAM 3.7.4 for non-XT (original) meters:

  • Deployable by TPP 4.8 and later.
    • TPP 4.8 and later will not list (or allow selection) of any XT meters for deployment.
    • This protects the customer from damaging their meter with the wrong firmware.
  • Only exists as a ZIP file (no separate XML file)
  • TPP 4.6 will not allow browsing to the DSAM 3.7.4 firmware, since there is no external XML file to find.
  • If the XML file is extracted from the upgrade ZIP file and you attempted to use this for upgrade, you will get an error message and be prevented from deploying the firmware

DSAM 4.1 (and future/later versions): for XT meters only

  • Deployable by TPP 4.8 and later.
    • TPP v4.7 and later will not list (or allow selection) of any non-XT meters for deployment.
    • This protects the customer from damaging their meter with the wrong firmware.
  • Only exists as a ZIP file (no separate XML file).
  • TPP 4.6 will not allow browsing to the DSAM 4.1 firmware, since there is no external XML file to find.
    • If a customer extracts the XML file internal to the ZIP file, they'll get an error which still prevents deployment of the firmware.

DSAM Meter Option and BPI+ Certificate deployment support:

  • All versions of these files (always with an XML and ZIP file pair) will be deployable by any version of TPP.

Upgrading TPP from Earlier Versions

In order to upgrade your TPP software to version 4.8, you must start from at least version 4.4 (see table below). If you have an earlier version than 4.4, you must first upgrade from your version to a higher version. Please call TAC if you have any questions.
