This error indicates that you are on version 8.1.3 or earlier and need to be on the latest version. 

You should have received correspondence via email and/or letter to give you details of your online portal (https://softwaredownload.csdental.com/en-GB) to download the new version (Our current version release is 8.1.5).

Re: Address Finder Expiry Notification

I downloaded the 8.1.5 upgrade today.

I backed up the database and endeavored to install the upgrade.

However, I got the following error message :

This machine is not the designated CSR4+ server, please run this update on the Server machine to continue.

However, I am definitely on the CSR4 server !

This happened previously in December 2020 when I upgraded to 8.1.3 and the helpline had to tweek a setting to enable me to effect the upgrade.

Next week is half term and exceptionally busy and given that all users have to log off  to effect this upgrade, I am at a loss to know when I might be able to so as all our appointment books are chock a bock.

Clearly, these upgrades need to be done outside surgery hours.

Can you let me know what I need to do to overcome this recurring error message ?

Is there a permanent fix or will a fix be needed at every upgrade ?

My designated CSR4+ server is a virtual Server running under Windows Hyper V and I wonder if that is the problem even though Carestream assured me that many sites ran CSR4+ on virtual Servers.

These upgrades really need to be run outside surgery hours.

Many Thanks,

Ed.Byrne.

Morning Ed,

Many thanks for your post.

The error message you received is due to running the upgrade via an RDP connection, when you access the server PC via RDP it messes up the registry and doesn't believe it is the server PC.

Do you have an alternate way of accessing your server PC?

Regards

Matt

Thank you Matt,

Yes you are right, I was endeavouring to do this via RDP from my surgery.

However, today, after everyone logged out, I went onto our Server, backed up the database and tried again, but got the same message appeared.

This machine is not the designated CSR4+ server, please run this update on the Server machine to continue.

I am running R4 on a Virtual Server. After logging onto the physical server, I connected to the R4 server via Microsoft Hyper V. I presume R4 is treating this as the same way it does an RDP connection.

My Server specialist recommended running R4 on a Virtual Server because at the time R4 was not tested on Server 2019 and so I am running Server 2016 on this Virtual Server specifically for R4 whereas I am running Server 2019 for my other programs.

I did check with Carestream beforehand and I was told that lots of R4 Users are using Virtual servers successfully. However, it does seem to be causing this issue with updates.

How do I get around this ?

Many Thanks.

Hi @edbyrne,

The issue would be that the registry has changed, there is a section in this that states "Is Server" this just needs to be amended.

If you could private message me your account number I will reach out and get this amended on the server PC.

Regards

Matt
