About this task

When an ADS, ADX, OR OAS exists on a site, it is automatically the Site Director. If you add multiple Metasys servers to a site, the first ADS, ADX, or OAS that you add is the Site Director by default.

To add an ADS, ADX, or OAS to an archive database, complete the following steps:


  1. With the Archive Database open, from the Insert menu, select Metasys Server.
  2. In the Insert Metasys Server wizard, follow the prompts on the screen to configure the Metasys Server. See the following table for details.
    Table 1. Insert Metasys Server Wizard



    Object Type

    Select the type of Metasys server you are adding and the version number; for example, ADS at Version 10.1.


    Select the site where the Metasys server resides.


    Type a unique name for the Metasys server. A unique name is required for each Metasys server in an archive. By default, the name of the object has a number appended to keep it unique. Therefore, if adding an ADS to a site for the first time, the default name is ADS1.


    Access features of the Metasys server, including:

    Email - SNMP and POP destinations. Add email addresses for the Metasys server to send messages.

    Pager - Enter phone number information for sending messages to a pager.

    SNMP - Enable SNMP and add destinations.


    View the basic parameters of the Metasys server just added.

  3. Click Finish.
    Note: You can add an ADS, ADX, or OAS child server report to another ADS, ADX, OAS, or ODS server as site director in SCT; however, it is not supported.
