I am currently running API Buffer Server (BufServ) and looking to transition to PI Buffer Subsystem 126.96.36.199. Is this able to be done on a system that is online and how long of a process is it to configure Buffer Subsystem?
Upgrade API Buffer Server to PI Buffer Subsystem. This video walks through the steps required on a client machine. It talks about versions BufServ v188.8.131.52 to PIBufss v4.3, which you can use an intermediate step to upgrade and then jump to the required version of PI Bufss or refer to PI Bufss documentation to directly jump to higher versions.
