Simulations designed and edited in the StruxureWare Data Center Operation: Lab exist only as separate simulation solutions and do not affect the data center model of the live environment created in the StruxureWare Data Center Operation application.

When you launch the application, it will open a copy of the existing data center model of the live environment from StruxureWare Data Center Operation. If you have more rooms designed, a dialog box will appear asking you to select the room or rooms that you want to open. Subsequently, when you launch the application, and at least one solution has previously been saved, a dialog box will appear asking you to select the solution that you want to open.

  1. To simulate how planned changes would affect the existing StruxureWare Data Center Operation data center model without affecting it:
    1. In the Open Solution dialog box, select Current StruxureWare Data Center Operation solution and click Open.
      (This step is not necessary if you launch the application without any previously saved solutions, as the application opens a copy of the existing StruxureWare Data Center Operation data center model.)
    2. Perform the desired edits, e.g. adding equipment.
    3. Select File > Save as and type a file name.
  2. To edit a previously saved test simulation:
    1. In the Open Solution dialog box, select Existing StruxureWare Data Center Operation: Lab solution and click Open.
    2. Perform the desired edits, e.g. adding equipment.
    3. Select File > Save.
