CONFIGURATION
Overview
The Network Video Recorder - Alarm Server 3000 Series
(NVR-AS) RA variants are rack-mountable or standalone video
and audio recorders. They contain 4 disks organized as a
RAID-0, RAID-1, or RAID-5 array, depending on the NVR-AS
model, which allow you to store recordings and play them back at
a later date. They provide a powerful and integrated recording
and playback system for video and audio from cameras,
transmitters, and receivers.
Each NVR-AS in a system can record from up to 64 cameras or
transmitters while simultaneously playing back up to 20
recordings, all at full frame rate. Each NVR-AS is managed and
configured by the Control Center application. Video can be
played back to PCs, analog monitors and standard VCRs.
The NVR-AS allows you to do the following:
•
Record video and audio streams from IndigoVision 8000
(MPEG4), IndigoVision 9000 (H.264), and IndigoVision
10000 (HD) units configured as transmitters; this can be
on-demand, time scheduled, or event driven
•
Play back video and audio streams to IndigoVision 8000
(MPEG4), IndigoVision 9000 (H.264), and IndigoVision
10000 (HD) units configured as receivers, or compatible PC
software clients
•
Manage recordings (deleting, scheduling, etc.)
•
Log and report significant events
•
Review the recordings and alarm events on the disks which
are currently being recorded
•
Review recordings and alarm events on an archived set of
disks
•
Prepare disks for recording
8

NVR-AS Power Up Sequence
Using the internal power supply
1
Connect the mains input to the NVR-AS using the cable
provided. Switch on the mains power.
2
The NVR-AS now powers up and goes through its boot
sequence. When the activity light (2nd from left as viewed
from front) is regularly flashing the boot sequence is
complete, and the NVR-AS is ready. The PS1 light should be
lit to indicate the power supply is operating.
9
Using the external power supply
Note: The external power supply is not supplied with the
product. You need to order it separately if required.
1
Ensure that the mains power is disconnected from the power
supply.
2
Connect the circular DC power connector from the power
supply to the NVR-AS ensuring that the mains power input to
the power supply is still disconnected. Lock the connector in
place by rotating the locking bush clockwise.
3
Connect the mains input to the power supply using the cable
provided. Switch on the mains power.
4
The NVR-AS now powers up and goes through its boot
sequence. When the activity light (2nd from left as viewed
from front) is regularly flashing the boot sequence is
complete, and the NVR-AS is ready. The PS2 light should be
lit to indicate the power supply is operating.
Warning: The external power supply connector for the NVR-AS
is of the same type as that for the IndigoVision
10-Channel Rack, however the voltages are different.
Using the wrong power supply to power either the
Rack or NVR-AS may result in damage to the unit and
or power supply. Always ensure the correct power
supply is used with the correct device.
The power supply unit (PSU) connector for the
NVR-AS has a locking screw mechanism, whereas
the PSU for the Rack does not.
10
NVR-AS Power Off Sequence
The NVR-AS must be properly shut down before removing
power.
To shut down the device:
1
Press the Suspend/Resume button on the front.
2
Wait until both the CPU and Alarm LEDs on the front panel
change from solid on, to flashing.
3
Remove the mains power cable from the NVR-AS or power
supply.
4
After removing mains power from an external power supply
unit, remove the circular DC power connector from the
NVR-AS. You must first unlock the locking bush — to do this,
rotate it anti-clockwise.
11
NVR-AS Usage
The removable disks offer a flexible solution for recording and
storing video footage. There are three main ways in which you
can use the removable disks:
•
Archiving disks
You can store the 4 disks as an archive. If you intend to do
this, you must ensure that the disks are replaced when
necessary. You should also protect all the recordings to
effectively make the disks read-only before you archive them
(see “Protecting Recordings” on page 41).
For information on removing and replacing disks, see “Using
the Removable Disks” on page 29
•
Reusing the same disks
If you do not need to store archive footage, you can record
over old recordings. To do this, you should ensure that the
appropriate disk space management regime is in force, for
example, by setting up recording jobs to record at specific
times.
Recordings are automatically reaped (deleted) when
remaining disk space falls under a set threshold. In addition,
you can specify that recordings should be deleted once they
reach a certain age (see Chapter 3 for more information).
•
Removing evidence of an incident
You may need to remove disks containing footage of an
incident for evidential purposes, and replace them to continue
normal recording. Before removing the disks, you should
ensure that all recordings are protected (see “Protecting
Recordings” on page 41.)
For information on removing and replacing disks, see “Using
the Removable Disks” on page 29
Warning: The order of the disks is important. Disks must be
replaced in the same disk position from which they
were removed, and must match the order of the disks
on the web page (see Chapter 3 on page 29).
As the four disks are combined in a RAID array, you
cannot read data from a single disk in isolation.
12
Configuration
You can configure your NVR-AS using the Web Configuration
pages or a serial connection.
Default IP Properties
By default, each NVR-AS is programmed with the following IP
properties:
Table 1 Default IP Properties

Using the Web Configuration Pages
This section takes you through the steps required to configure
your NVR-AS using the Web Configuration pages. These are as
follows:
1
Prepare an isolated network.
2
Prepare your PC for initial device configuration.
3
Configure your NVR-AS. This includes specifying its IP
address and subnet mask.
Configuration Prerequisites
To configure your NVR-AS using the Web Configuration pages,
you require one of the following:
•
A CAT5 crossover cable suitable for connection between the
PC and the RJ45 connector on the NVR-AS
•
An isolated hub or a switch
13
Step 1: Preparing an Isolated Network
You should connect your NVR-AS and the PC you are using to
configure it on their own isolated network. To do this, use an
Ethernet cross-over cable to connect the PC to either Ethernet
interface on the rear of the unit (see Figure 1).

Step 2: Preparing PC for Initial Device Configuration
All NVR-AS units are supplied with their IP address set to
10.5.1.10 and their subnet mask set to 255.0.0.0. You cannot
connect the devices to your network until you have changed
these settings to suit your network.
To change the factory defaults of your NVR-AS, you must first
(temporarily) modify your PC’s network settings.
Caution: Please make a note of the original value of all settings
you change so that you can re-enter them when you
have completed the initial device configuration.
To change your PC’s settings:
Use the Windows Network Settings configuration application to
set the PC’s IP address and subnet mask.
1
In Windows Explorer, right-click My Network Places or
Network Neighborhood, and select Properties.

Set the IP address to an address close to the factory IP
address, for example, 10.5.1.2 and change the PC’s subnet
mask to 255.0.0.0 (the same as the factory default).
5
Click OK, then OK again.
16
Step 3: Configuring your NVR-AS
Once you have changed your PC’s network settings, you must
change the IP values of your NVR-AS from its factory defaults.
All NVR-AS units are supplied with their IP address set to
10.5.1.10 and their subnet mask set to 255.0.0.0. You cannot
connect your device to the network until you have changed these
settings to suit your network.

recording. This stream is then used for all recording jobs on
this NVR-AS.
5
When you have configured the device as required, click
Submit to apply the changes to the device. You are now
ready to take your device off the isolated network and
connect it to the main network. See “Attaching the NVR-AS to
the Network” on page 21.
6
If you need to configure another device, disconnect the cable
from the device. Leave the cable connected to the PC.
Note: You may want to make a note of the device’s new IP
address and subnet mask, or label the device with its
new details.
7
Connect the crossover cable to the next device you want to
configure.
Note: Before you can access the next unit for configuration,
you must type the following command from a
Command Window:
C:> arp -d 10.5.1.10
8
Repeat these steps for each device, using different IP
addresses for each device.
Note: Ensure that no two devices share the same IP
address (or that of the PC).
19
Using the Serial Port Connection
To configure your NVR-AS using its serial port, you require an
RS232 serial cable.

Serial RS-232 console port
Port Network Connectors
The network connectors are RJ-45 connectors. These interfaces
can be set to use fixed 100Mbps Half Duplex, 100Mbps Full
Duplex, 1000Mbps Full Duplex link, or can be set to
auto-negotiate. They are used to record and play back media
streams, as well as for web page management.
Both ports should be connected to the network to provide
Ethernet redundancy. Only one link will be active at any given
time. If one links fails, the NVR-AS automatically switches to use
the other, maintaining network connectivity using the same IP
address.
26
Serial RS-232 Console Port
The console port is an RS-232 interface, using the standard 9-pin

Power
Two power inlets are provided, a mains input to an internal power
supply, and a DC input from an external power supply. The unit
may be powered using either connector. Powering the unit
through both connectors provides power supply redundancy so
that if there is a failure in one supply, the unit can continue to
operate from the other functioning power supply.
Warning: The external power supply connector for the NVR-AS
is of the same type as that for the IndigoVision
10-Channel Rack, however the voltages are different.
Using the wrong power supply to power either the
Rack or NVR-AS may result in damage to the unit and
or power supply. Always ensure the correct power
supply is used with the correct device.
The PSU connector for the NVR-AS has a locking
screw mechanism, whereas the PSU for the Rack
does not.
27
Rack-mounting your NVR-AS Unit
If you are rack-mounting your NVR-AS unit, please consider the
following:
•
Elevated Operating Ambient — If installed in a closed or
multi-unit rack assembly, the operating ambient temperature
of the rack environment may be greater than room ambient.
Therefore, consideration should be given to installing the
equipment in an environment compatible with the specified
50ºC maximum ambient temperature (Tma) of the unit.
•
Reduced Air Flow — Installation of the equipment in a rack
should be such that the amount of air flow required for safe
operation of the equipment is not compromised. To facilitate
this, an air gap of at least 6cm on both sides of the unit is
recommended.
•
Mechanical Loading — Mounting of the equipment in the
rack should be such that a hazardous condition is not
achieved due to uneven mechanical loading.
•
Circuit Overloading — Consideration should be given to the
connection of the equipment to the supply circuit and the
effect that overloading of the circuits might have on
overcurrent protection and supply wiring. Appropriate
consideration of equipment nameplate ratings should be used
when addressing this concern.
•
Reliable Earthing — Reliable earthing of rack-mounted
equipment should be maintained. Particular attention should
be given to supply connections other than direct connections
to the branch circuit (e.g. use of power strips).
28
Removable Disk Hardware
The NVR-AS uses a 3.5” SATA disk of various capacities in a
removable drive enclosure.
Note: The disks used within any one NVR-AS must all be the
same size.
Caution: The NVR-AS will start in a maintenance state if it
detects an invalid RAID array; this may be because
one or more disks are faulty/missing. No recordings
will be made until you correct the disk problems, and
(if necessary) format the RAID array.

USING THE REMOVABLE DISKS
This chapter explains the following:
•
Changing Disks
•
Protecting Recordings
•
Reformatting a RAID Array
Changing Disks
There are three occasions when you may need to change one or
more NVR-AS disks:
•
Replace a faulty disk.
•
Replace all 4 disks and insert new ones. You need to replace
the disks if they are becoming full according to your
maintenance schedule, or if an incident has occurred and you
need to remove them.
•
Replace either the primary or secondary pair of disks in a
RAID-1 NVR-AS. The primary and secondary pair of disks
are a mirrored set in a RAID-1 NVR-AS, and hold the same
recording data. You can remove either pair of disks to
transfer recorded data to another NVR-AS. Once the pair of
disks is replaced with new disks you can use the Disk web
page to choose either of the following operations:
•
to format the entire array erasing all recordings on all the
disks, or
30
•
to add the disks to the existing array which preserves the
recordings and reinstates the RAID redundancy of the
disks.
Warning: Disks have a warranty of 5 years, but this warranty will
be voided if the disk is removed from the caddy.
Disks are not field replaceable. Faulty disks must be
returned to IndigoVision as part of a caddy assembly.
Individual disk and caddy assemblies required as
spares or replacements can be ordered from
IndigoVision.
Caution: Before removing a disk set, IndigoVision recommends
that you protect the recordings on the NVR-AS to
prevent accidental deletion when it is re-inserted. For
information on protecting recordings, see “Protecting
Recordings” on page 41.
It is essential that a removed disk is replaced into the
same caddy from which it was removed, otherwise the
RAID array will not be correctly rebuilt, resulting in a
loss of recordings. IndigoVision recommends that you
write the disk number (as shown on the web page) on
the disks as you remove them from the NVR-AS, so as
to note their position in the array.
31
Replacing a Faulty Disk
This section explains how to change disks. The procedure differs
depending on whether you have a RAID-0, RAID-1, or RAID-5
NVR-AS.
Remove the front cover of the unit by turning the key to the
unlock position and pulling the tab behind the lock.
RAID-0 NVR-AS
When a disk fails on a RAID-0 NVR-AS, the RAID array crashes,
all recording stops and all recordings are lost.
To replace a single disk that has failed:
1
Browse to the Home page of the unit — this may help identify
which disk has failed.
Figure 12 RAID-0 NVR-AS with one disk indicating “Not Found”
2
Depending on the type of failure, one of the disks may
indicate “Not found” — if so, this is the disk that has failed.
If all disks indicate NO RAID, please contact IndigoVision
Partner Support. Please have information from the
Diagnostics web page to hand.
32
3
Remove the front cover of the unit by turning the key to the
unlock position and pulling the tab behind the lock.
4
Turn the disk lock to the open position and push the release
button of the faulty disk. The release lever opens.
5
Pull the release lever to release the disk, then remove the
disk.

The unit constructs the RAID array. Recordings recommence
immediately.
The current status of the RAID array is shown both on the
Home page, and the Disk Configuration page.

RAID-1 NVR-AS
A RAID-1 NVR-AS consists of two pairs of disks. When a disk
fails on a RAID-1 NVR-AS, one of the pairs of disks stops
recording, but the other pair continues.
To replace a single disk that has failed:
1
Browse to the Home page of the unit — this may help identify
which disk has failed.
Figure 16 RAID-1 Home page showing Disk 0 failure
2
Depending on the type of failure, one of the disks may
indicate “Not found” or “Error” — if so, this is the disk that has
failed.
If both disks indicate ERROR, please contact IndigoVision
Partner Support. Please have information from the
Diagnostics web page to hand.
3
Remove the front cover of the unit by turning the key to the
unlock position and pulling the tab behind the lock.
4
Turn the disk lock to the open position and push the release
button of the faulty disk. The release lever opens.
5
Pull the release lever to release the disk, then remove the
disk.

Insert the new disk assembly into the slot on the front of the
NVR-AS, and push the disk home until the release lever
starts to close. Push the lever towards the disk to secure it in
place, then turn the disk lock to the lock position.

Browse to the Disk Configuration page and click Add Disk to
add the disk to the RAID array.
Figure 19 Adding disk to RAID-1 array
9
The unit adds the disk and rebuilds the RAID array. During
the RAID rebuild, all disks are shown as rebuilding and the
status line below the disks provides an estimate of how long
this will take to complete. The rebuild time depends on the
NVR-AS load. Recordings are not interrupted while the array
rebuilds.
The current status of the RAID array is shown both on the
Home page, and the Disk Configuration page.
Note: During rebuilding of RAID-1 disks, existing recordings
remain intact.
37
RAID-5 NVR-AS
When a disk fails on a RAID-5 NVR-AS it will continue recording
until the failed disk can be replaced.
To replace a single disk that has failed:
1
Browse to the Home page of the unit - this may help identify
which disk has failed.

Depending on the type of failure, one of the disks may
indicate "Not found" or "Error".

Turn the disk lock to the open position and push the release
button of the faulty disk. The release lever opens.

Replacing all Four Disks
Caution: It is advisable to protect all recordings before
removing all four disks.
1
Browse to the Diagnostics page and click Shutdown.
2
Wait for the web page to confirm that the shutdown has
completed.
3
Power off the unit.
4
Remove each disk in turn, noting its position in the RAID
array to ensure that it is returned to the same position at a
later date.
5
Insert each new disk in turn, ensuring each disk is locked,
and if these disks are from a previously archived set, that they
are replaced in the correct position.
6
Power on the unit.
7
If this is a new set of RAID array disks, or you wish to start
with a clean RAID array, browse to the Disk Web Page and
click Format Entire RAID Array. This re-partitions, formats
and builds the RAID array.
Warning: When you click Format Entire RAID Array, all existing
recordings on the disks are deleted.
41
Protecting Recordings
It is good practice to set all recordings on the disks to protected
status before removing a disk set which is to be archived. This
means that when the disks are reinserted, recordings cannot be
accidentally deleted or recorded over.
Caution: Please be aware that if you protect all recordings, you
lose the ability to identify recordings that were
deliberately protected by the user in Control Center.
To protect all recordings on the disks:
1
Enter the IP address of the NVR-AS containing the disk into
the URL field of a web browser.
2
Click Disk in the menu on the left. The Disk Configuration
page opens.
Figure 24 Disk Configuration page
3
Click Protect All to protect all recordings and events on the
current disks. (Similarly, click Unprotect All to allow all
recordings and events to be deleted.)
4
Click Submit.
42
Reformatting a RAID Array
To format the current disks, and build a clean RAID array,
erasing any previously stored data:
1
Browse to the Disk Page.
2
Click Format Entire RAID Array.
3
Confirm that you wish to format the RAID array.
The RAID array is formatted and the NVR-AS commences
normal operation.
The RAID array continues a background rebuild operation to
establish disk redundancy. The time taken to complete this
will depend on the NVR-AS recording load.
Warning: All data on the disks is erased when you format the
RAID array.
