The Security Copy function copies a source security database to the security databases of one or more supervisory device. The security database source is typically the security database of SCT or a supervisory device defined on the site. The process of copying security to a supervisory device also synchronizes the MetasysSysAgent passwords for the Metasys applications and the supervisory device’s operating system.

SCT no longer shares a security database with a Metasys server even when you install the SCT on the same server platform. SCT and an Metasys server always have unique security databases. The Security Copy process requires that you specify the MetasysSysAgent password for the Site Director. This ensures that only a key administrator of a site makes decisions about user security management. For more information on security, including setting up roles and users, refer to the Security Administrator System Technical Bulletin (LIT-1201528).
