Beginning at Metasys Release 10.1, the Advanced Security Enabled attribute for
a site object is set to
True by default. When the
attribute is set to
True, a site director at Metasys
Release 10.0 or later discards all communication attempts from network engines that are
at Metasys Release 9.0.7 or earlier. Therefore, network engines that are at Metasys
Release 9.0.7 or earlier disconnect from the site.
However, if you do not manually set the attribute to
False, the value changes to
True when you
upgrade from Release 10.0 to Release 10.1.
If you use SCT Pro to upgrade a site director to Release 10.1 and your site includes network engines at Metasys Release 9.0.7 or earlier, you can choose to either disconnect incompatible devices or to disable Advanced Security during the upgrade process. To change the value of the Advanced Security Enabled attribute, use either the SMP or Metasys UI to connect to the site director and change the value online, or use either the SCT or SCT Pro to change the value in the archive offline, and then perform a download.
