During the security copy process, the MetasysSysAgent password credentials are copied to the supervisory devices and application-level security database. Credentials are also used to synchronize the MetasysSysAgent user and password for the supervisory device's operating system. The MetasysSysAgent user ID and password for the supervisory device's operating system is required when you need to retrieve device debug (crash) files using the SCT Device Debug Files menu item.

The following table summarizes the rules for how the application and operating system passwords for the MetasysSysAgent user are managed by Security Copy at multiple SCT releases.
