To ensure that your upgraded site continues to access historical data, complete the following steps:
  1. Use the SCT to rename the Site Director or child device to match the new computer name. NxE85 and LCS can act as a child device.
  2. Use the Metasys Database Manager to update the Site Director and the device name in the JCI databases.

For more information about an out-of-place upgrade, see Performing an out-of-place upgrade.

To access the Metasys Rename Assistant, browse to C:\Program Files (x86)\Johnson Controls\Metasys Database Manager. Double-click Metasys Rename Assistant in the Metasys Database Manager folder.

Note: If you have large historical databases, the rename procedure may take several hours to complete. Purge your databases in advance in order to speed up the rename process. For more information, see Purging a database.
