For NAE and SNE series network engines, a Security Database that is backed up from a Metasys server may include a mixture of Metasys local users and roles with Active Directory service users. The Download To Device function only restores local users and roles to the device because network engines do not support Active Directory service authentication and authorization, even if the NxE is a Site Director. The Download To Device function informs the user if Active Directory service users exist within the Security Database but are not restored because the target device does not support Active Directory service authentication and authorization. The message that appears in the Completed Actions screen of ActionQ is: OK - Restore to non-Active Directory Device (616).
