Menu Selection: Tools > Database > Restore Backup

Restores a backup (archive) database that was created using the Tools > Database > Create Backup menu option in the SCT.

The default path is C:\ProgramData\Johnson Controls\MetasysIII\DatabaseFiles.

Alternatively, use the Export/Import database feature in the Tools menu to create and restore a backup of an archive database. See Importing an Archive Database for further information.

Note: The database Restore Archive feature cannot restore an archive to a version of SQL Server that is earlier than the SQL Server version used to create the backup file. The Import Database and Export Database features must be used to restore a database without SQL Server limitations.
Note: The database Restore Archive feature also restores the self-signed and trusted certificates for network engines if they were part of the archive backup. A network engine certificate is only restored if the archive was backed up on the same SCT computer. If you restore the archive using a different SCT computer, the certificate data is deleted. This is a security precaution that protects against certificate theft.
