Procedure

  1. Create a backup of the Security database of the demoted device, but only if you are using the same set of users on the new or existing Site Director.
  2. Create a backup of the Security database from one of the devices (Metasys Server or network engine) on the site that has never been a Site Director and has never had a Site Director’s Security database restored to it (in other words, has a clean Security database with only the default user accounts).
  3. Restore the clean copy of the Security database that you created in Step 2 to the device that was demoted from the Site Director.
  4. If you are using the Security database of the demoted device on the new Site Director, restore the Security database that you backed up in Step 1 to the new or existing Site Director.
  5. Create a backup of the Security database from the device that was demoted and restored with a clean database in Step 3.

    This step ensures that the device Security database in the SCT matches the clean Security you restored to the device in Step 3.
