The Security Copy function copies a source security database to the security databases of one or more supervisory device. The security database source is typically the security database of a supervisory device defined on the site. The process of copying security to a supervisory device also synchronizes the MetasysSysAgent passwords for the Metasys applications and the supervisory device’s operating system.
SCT no longer shares a security database with a Metasys server even when you install the SCT on the same server platform. SCT and a Metasys server always have unique security databases. The Security Copy process requires that you specify the MetasysSysAgent password for the Site Director. This ensures that only a key administrator of a site makes decisions about user security management. For more information on security, including setting up roles and users, refer to the Security Administrator System Technical Bulletin (LIT-1201528).
