- Create a backup of the Security database of the demoted device, but only if you are using the same set of users on the new or existing Site Director.
- Create a backup of the Security database from one of the devices (Metasys Server or network engine) on the site that has never been a Site Director and has never had a Site Director’s Security database restored to it (in other words, has a clean Security database with only the default user accounts).
- Restore the clean copy of the Security database that you created in Step 2 to the device that was demoted from the Site Director.
- If you are using the Security database of the demoted device on the new Site Director, restore the Security database that you backed up in Step 1 to the new or existing Site Director.
Create a backup of the Security database from the device that was demoted and
restored with a clean database in Step 3.
This step ensures that the device Security database in the SCT matches the clean Security you restored to the device in Step 3.
