Welcome to the Metasys NAE85 Installation and Upgrade Instructions. The document guides you through the steps you need to follow to install or upgrade the Metasys NAE85 software.

Important: The NAE85 must be licensed with the Software Manager after you install it. See Licensing the NAE85 for licensing information or refer to the Software Manager Help (LIT-12012389).
Important: At Release 12.0, the NAE85 functions as a Site Director but not as a child device. To keep a NAE85 as a child device, do not upgrade it to Release 12.0.
Important: A new install of an NAE85 or an upgrade of an NAE85 requires Microsoft™ SQL Server. If you install or upgrade an NAE85 on the Microsoft Server Operating System (OS), you need the standard or enterprise edition of SQL Server and an SQL license. If you install or upgrade an NAE85 on your Windows 10 OS, SQL Server Express is loaded for you as part of the install if no other SQL Server instance is installed.
