A Metasys archive database contains the configuration information for Metasys Servers, network engines, BAS network integrations, third-party integrations, field devices, and field points that make up a single site or multiple sites on a Metasys system network. Multiple archive databases, representing multiple sites, can reside on a single ADS/ADX running the SCT. The SCT navigation panel in Figure 1 provides a graphical representation of some of the items that may be in a Metasys archive database.
An SNE archive database, which is stored in the network engine's internal memory, contains only the specific configuration information that makes up the network integrations, field devices, and field points that the SNE is supervising. Each SNE retains only its own archive database. You can also save the SNE database in a Metasys archive database on an ADS/ADX or another computer using the SCT. A graphical representation of some of the items contained in an SNE archive database is shown in Figure 1 in the Site Management Portal UI navigation panel.
You can upload an SNE archive database to the SCT where it can be saved to a hard disk or other long-term storage media. You can also edit an SNE archive database offline in the SCT and download the edited archive database to the network engine.
