About this task

  1. Select the item to create. The corresponding wizard appears. If more than one type of item is available, select the desired type. Click Next.
    • Select Action menu > Show Extensions to launch the Extension Wizard to create extensions to objects that support them.
    • Select Tools menu > Manage Archive to launch the Manage Archive Wizard within SCT. The following options are available within the archive databases: Upload from Device, Download to Device, Synchronize, and Upgrade Device. The Upload function has an option to upload the CAF files of connected field controllers into the archive database. The Download function has an option to download the code of the supervisory device. The Upgrade Device function has an option to patch the supervisory device. Also, for a network engine only, both the Upload and Download options have an option for uploading and downloading certificates.
    • Select Tools menu > Security Copy to launch the Security Copy Wizard within SCT.
    • Select Tools menu > Database to launch the Restore Archive Wizard in the SCT.

  2. Complete the information on the wizard screens, using the navigation buttons to move through the screens. The screens vary depending on the item you are creating. See the Using Wizards section for information specific to each wizard.
    Note: All items appear in the wizard, not just valid destinations. When you click an item that is not a valid destination for the item being added, an error message appears on the right side of the wizard and the Next button is disabled.
  3. Select Finish on the summary page to create the item. If an error occurs, a message displays and the wizard returns to the summary page. If the item supports extensions, the Extension Wizard displays after the item is successfully created.
