About this task

Note: If an archive has been restored but not yet upgraded, the action of opening an archive initiates the upgrade process.
  • For archives prior to Release 5.2, the Open Archive process automatically upgrades the archive database, ADS/ADX, and engines to match the installed release of SCT.

  • For archives Release 5.2 and later, the Update Archive screen prompts you to either update the archive database or cancel the process.

To open an archive database:


  1. On the Item menu, click Open Archive. The Open Archive wizard appears.
  2. Select an archive from the list and click Open.
    Note: If an archive database is already open, you are prompted to close it before the selected archive database opens.
    Note: If you open an archive between Release 5.2 and 9.0, the Update Archive screen appears.
  3. Select Update Archive to promote the archive to the latest release of SCT but leave all the devices at their current release. The ActionQ appears and displays the status of the update process.
  4. When the update completes, repeat Steps 1 and 2 to open the updated archive.
