How To Deploy OpenInsight 10 To Your Customers
Deployment in OpenInsight 10 is significantly different from prior versions. Because system information is now encrypted on a per-system basis, you must tell the copy of OpenInsight 10 that you are changing the serial number (which is used in the encryption process) _before_ you change it.  Failure to do this will result in a system that cannot be accessed (until you put the original serial number back into the system).

The steps to making a deployment as you want are as follows:

1. Request, and receive, the new authorization code from Revelation Software with the new serial number and new number of users;
2. In your "master" OpenInsight 10 system, in SYSPROG, go to the Settings/Users/Policy Setup menu choice in the IDE;
3. In the policy configuration window, check the box "System Deployment Preparation" and press the OK button;
4. In the Serial Number Entry dialog that appears, enter (and re-enter to verify) the new serial number you obtained from Revelation Software and press the OK button;
5. Remove or change as appropriate the REVPARAM file from the cloned copy of OpenInsight before deployment;
6. Clone your copy of OpenInsight
