  1. From the Config Tool home page, click Tools > Move unit .
  2. From the Unit type drop-down list, select Video unit.
  3. Select the units you want to move.
  4. Under Archiver, select the new Archiver role to control the unit.
  5. Click Move > Close .

After you finish

Move any important video archives over to the new Archiver at a convenient time.
