    Note: No changes are saved and no error messages appear if you update permissions for a user in an Metasys server system when the database is offline. For example, an offline database may be the result of Microsoft SQL Server database not running, or an ADX split configuration network connectivity problem between the web/application server and the database server. To verify your changes, select another user and then reselect the user to which you made changes.
