All OpenLNS Commissioning Tool (OpenLNS CT) need to update to IzoT CT (KB1356)

All OpenLNS CT customers need to update their software to IzoT CT due to a bug with the OpenLNS Server OpenLNS Database Validation Tool.  This only applies if you are using OpenLNS Server 4.00.182.  If you are using IzoT Net Server 4.02+ you can ignore the rest of this KB article.
OpenLNS CT comes with OpenLNS Server.  Updating OpenLNS Server to IzoT Net Server makes OpenLNS CT into IzoT CT (even though the name may have not changed within the software) which means OpenLNS Server 4.02+ is called IzoT Net Server.

OpenLNS Server (IzoT Net Server) versions:

To check if you have IzoT CT, click the icon in the upper-left hand corner of the CT Design Manager (first dialog that comes up when you open CT) and select About Echelon IzoT CT.  If the OpenLNS version is 4.00.182 then you need to update OpenLNS Server.  If the OpenLNS version is 4.02+ then you already have upgraded CT to IzoT CT and ignore the remainder of this KB article except the warning at the end.
