Solution
Version:

Network Sentry 7.0.3.and above

Issue:

Need to restore control to Primary Appliances due to system failover.  

Solution:

Control can be resumed via the Network Sentry Administrative UI.  The Summary panel displays the status of the Primary and Secondary Servers, as well as a means to restore control to the Primary. Login to the Administrative UI. Under the Summary panel, click the Resume button under the Primary Server no longer in control. 

Important:

Restoring control to Primaries will take several minutes to complete.  During this time, Network Sentry services will not be running.

Note:

If running Network Sentry 7.0.2 or earlier, the system may need to be restored via the CLI.  Contact support for assistance.  If comfortable accessing the CLI, see Solution 001640 for instructions.
