When preforming an upgrade that already has a Spire licence the first screen you will see is the login to Spire server administration. The login user must be a Spire administrator.
This following screen lets you know that the current license information will be retrieved.
When you see this screen click on “Sign Up”, enter your email address then click “Sign Up“ at the bottom of the dialog.
Once the following screen is displayed, go to your email and select the verification email you received from Spire Central.
Click on “VERIFY YOUR ACCOUNT” in this email.
You will get the following verification.
Return to this tab in your browser and click the ‘login’ link.
You will then get a screen that says “Waiting for Certificate”. This can take a few minutes.
The upgrade is complete when you are presented with the login to Spire Server Administration. Log in with a user that is set as a Spire administrator.
When an administrator logs in they will see a screen similar to the following.
Note that Spire Server Administration replaces “Spire Tray”, and provides all of the functionality it provided. In addition to providing additional functionality, Spire Server Administration can be accessed from anywhere on the network where Spire is installed. Any user can logon to Spire Server Administration, but only admin users can perform all functions (backup, restore, report uploads, assign company logo, etc).
