  1. Click New Scan from the main menu to create a new site.
  2. Enter the required Site Name, Filter by Country, and Branch fields.
    Note: If you start typing the name of the branch you are searching for, the list auto-selects the entry. If the branch you want is not listed, ensure you sync from the Home page and that the branch exists in Salesforce.
  3. Click the right arrow. The Customer Information message box appears.
  4. Enter the customer’s information and click the right arrow.
  5. Select your Server OS and SQL Server Version, and indicate if you have Metasys UI implemented on your site. You can also provide information on your Metasys license. If you are unsure of what information to provide in the Metasys license field, hover over the info icon. Click the right arrow.
  6. Select either SCT Archive or Online.
    Note: Online refers to a Metasys Site Director of a live system.
  7. Enter the IP or host name of the server or computer that has the SCT Site archive installed.
    Note: You can specify a different port number to access a site by placing a colon followed by the port number after the address. For example: localhost:443. There is no default port selection.
  8. Enter your user name.
  9. Enter your password and click the right arrow.
