The intracomputer password, used for authentication in inter-device communication, was removed from the following devices as of Metasys Release 10.0 and later:
  • Network engines
  • SCT
  • Metasys UI
  • NAE Update Tool
  • LIP
    Note: Use the intracomputer password continues for communications between devices prior to Release 10.0.

Starting with Release 10.0 and later, each device has its own unique Device Key, which is generated during the pairing process. The Site Director stores its own individual device secure key and maintains the keys of all child devices. This transition affects the pairing process between network engines and Site Director from this release onwards. For further information, refer to the Pair NxE with Site Director section in Metasys SCT Help (LIT-12011964).
