When you upgrade from a version prior to 7.4, the breakers will be placed randomly in a placeholder panel. The placeholder panel is a temporary panel and it does not resemble the actual positions of the breakers. To get the benefits of the visual breaker panel, it is important that you reorganize each breaker into the correct position in a new Breaker Panel. This can be done by right-clicking the PDU and selecting Reorganizing Breaker Panel.
Reorganizing Breaker Panels
Right-click a PDU and select Reorganizing Breaker Panels.
If you have already created a panel, you can find it in the drop-down menu in Destination Panel or create and name a new panel.
Move breakers to the destination panel.
- To place a breaker in the selected panel, click the desired cell in the panel and select a breaker. Only breakers with matching phases will appear in the drop-down menu. You can toggle this display limitation by using the Strict phase matching check box in the top left corner.

If the PDU is correctly configured prior to the upgrade, the breaker modules should automatically be placed in the right positions, but it is important that you verify.
Before you upgrade make sure that the modular PDU is correctly configured (model name and module numbers). Download the PDU Webmin plugin to identify configuration issues with modular PDUs before the upgrade. Download and use of the Webmin plugin is described here.
