Procedure

  1. Upload the archive database of the demoted device using the Manage Archive Wizard in SCT, which also backs up the Security database of the device. This step is necessary only if you are using the same set of users on the new or an existing Site Director.
  2. Upload the archive database of one of the devices (ADS/ADX/network engine/SCT) on the site that has never been a Site Director and has never had a Site Director’s Security database copied to it (and, therefore, has a clean Security database with only the default user accounts).
  3. Copy the Security database that you created in Step 2 to the device that was demoted from the Site Director using the Security Copy Wizard in SCT.
  4. If you are using the Security database of the demoted device on the new Site Director, copy the Security database that you backed up in Step 1 to the new or existing Site Director.
  5. Create a backup of the Security database from the device that was demoted and restored with a clean database in Step 3.
    Note: This step ensures that the device Security database in the SCT matches the clean Security database you copied to the device in Step 3.
