When migrating an object configuration, the attributes are read from the object in the Metasys N1 Network and written to the corresponding Metasys system object as described in Table 1.

Metasys N1 Network hardware system object

1 The N1 Migration attempts to match the analog unit read from the Metasys N1 Network system (including the PIDL object) with a unit enumeration number from the UNIT_ENUM_SET.

2 The N1 Migration attempts to update the active and inactive attributes using the units read from NCM binary types of points.

3 The N1 Migration attempts to update the states_text property with units read from the NCM multistate types of points.

4 If a match with the enum set is not possible for an analog type of point, the retrieved units are appended to the DESCRIPTION_ATTR of the Metasys system object, and the units are defaulted (binaries - OFFON_ENUM_SET, analogs - NO_UNITS, multistates - STATES_ENUM_SET).
