Important Information
Avid recommends that you read all the information in this ReadMe file thoroughly before installing software or
attempting to use the Avid ISIS system. This ReadMe provides information that is not in the other Avid ISIS
documentation.
This is a common ReadMe used for the ISIS | 7500 - 7000, ISIS | 5500 - 5000 and ISIS | 2500 - 2000
infrastructures. New installations and upgrades run the same AvidISISSetup.exe file in the kit for installing the
ISIS | 7500 - 7000 System Director, ISIS | 2500 - 2000 System Director, and ISIS | 5500 - 5000 System Director or
Engine, ISIS File Gateway, and Windows client software. The installer automatically detects any previously
installed software and defaults to the appropriate software update.
References to ISIS | 5500 in this documentation apply to both ISIS | 5500 and ISIS 5000 with the exception of the
following:
n
•
ISIS | 5500-64. There was not an ISIS 5000-64.
•
ISIS | 5500-16 has an installed 10 Gb Myricom board. In the ISIS 5000-16, the Myricom board was not
installed with a shipping system. The Myricom board was an optional board in the ISIS 5000-16.
Search the Avid Knowledge Base for the most up-to-date ReadMe file, which contains the latest information that
might have become available after the documentation was published. To view the online version, visit the
Knowledge Base at www.avid.com/support.
This document provides hardware and software requirements, a hardware overview, and other important
information. This document also lists limitations and known issues. Physical connection of the system and loading
of the system and client software is explained in the appropriate Avid ISIS Setup Guide. You can access the
documentation in the top-level AvidISISDocumentation folder on the Avid ISIS software installer kit.

GUI and ISIS Installer Changes
•
New Redistribution Monitor—Under the Tools heading, a new feature called the Redistribution Monitor was
added. This link opens the Redistribution Monitor tool, which displays the progress of redistributions
triggered by configuration changes to Storage Managers and Workspaces.
•
Show/Hide Status Console Before Login—Administrators can now control whether the Status Console panel
is displayed on the login screen of the Management Console (by changing the setting on the Advanced >
Preferences screen). Prior to this release, the Status Console was visible even before a user logged in, but no
links were accessible until the user logged in.
•
Storage Elements Removed—In the Avid ISIS Management Console, the Storage Elements link was removed
from the System heading; all Storage Element information has been combined with Storage Managers.
•
Redesigned and Refreshed System Director Control Panel—The entire Control Panel has a new look. The
performance graphs and Metadata Usage panel were removed, as that information is available elsewhere. All
the configuration operations have been consolidated into one area of the Control Panel UI. The functions to
5
Supported Upgrade Paths
stop and start the System Director, change the password, change the System Director name, and dump
metadata have changed from text buttons to icons. Finally, the Launch Viewer and Reset Event buttons have
been removed.
•
Heartbeat Timeout Feature Moved—The Heartbeat Timeout feature has been moved to the Advanced tab on
the Switch Blade Agent page.
•
Low Disk Space Warning—If the C:\ or D:\ drives on the System Director run low on space, a warning is
displayed in the Status panel in the Management Console.
•
Renamed Avid ISIS installer—Formerly Autorun.exe, now AvidISISSetup.exe.
The Avid ISIS Administration Guide has been updated to reflect these changes.
Temperature Sensor Information Added for ISIS | 2500 - 2000
The ISIS | 2500 - 2000 Setup Guide now includes figures and a table describing the locations of the temperature
sensors in the Engines. The sensors are also displayed on the Agent page for each Engine. This information can
help you and Avid Support identify which component must be replaced depending on which temperature sensor
has failed.
Fixed in this Release
The following issues were corrected in this release.
•
Captures could fail intermittently during an add or remove redistribution resulting in an error such as the
following from the editor: “Video/Audio no longer coming into the system.”
•
Removed the restriction on changing the Delete Logging setting only during maintenance periods. You can
now change the setting at any time.
•
The drive numbers on the i4000 and i8000 (ISIS | 7500) are now set correctly.
•
Improved the launch speed of the ISIS Toolbox, LDAP Sync Tool, and Monitoring Tool.
Corrections from Previous Release
The note in the v4.6.1 ReadMe about the Intel NIC version required for systems running Windows v8.1 has been
clarified as follows:
n
A new Intel 1Gb Network version (18.6) is required if you are running Windows v8.1 on the following platforms:
HP Z230, HP Z1 Gen2, HP ZBook, Dell T1700, Dell M4800, Dell M6800, Lenovo x540, Lenovo E32, or Lenovo
ThinCentre Edge 93Z. The v18.6 driver is included in the ISIS Installation Kit: \Drivers\ISIS Client. Note:
Currently, the v18.6 driver has only been qualified with Windows v8.1.
Supported Upgrade Paths
If you have a previous version of ISIS software, you can upgrade to a newer version according to the following
table.
The installer, AvidISISSetup.exe, determines the version of software currently on your System Director and
prevents you from performing an unsupported upgrade. If applicable, a dialog box instructs you to upgrade to an
intermediate version before upgrading to the current version. Make sure you correctly identify your ISIS hardware
model in the table.
For instructions on upgrading your ISIS system, see the latest Setup Guide for your ISIS model.

When installing the Avid ISIS | 7500 - 7000 software, you no longer need to open the Windows Control Panel on
the System Director to uninstall the earlier version of the Avid ISIS System Director software. All of the previous
Avid ISIS software is automatically uninstalled when installing a newer version.
Change in Space Reporting in v4.5
If you are upgrading to 4.5 or later, you may see a change in the amount of used space reported in Storage Groups.
Starting with the v4.5 release, very small files are now reported as using at least the default chunk size of the
system. Previously, the space used by very small files was not properly accounted for, resulting in the Storage
Group reporting more free space than was actually available.
Metadata Location On the System Director
After doing an ISIS v4.x software upgrade, move the metadata. The upgrade instructions include moving the
following files to a new location.
•

Hardware and Software Requirements
To meet the stringent needs of media applications the ISIS family of storage solutions is built using patented
intellectual property in ISIS software running on Avid ISIS hardware. Avid tests and qualifies configurations of
Avid ISIS software deployed on Avid ISIS hardware. The ISIS System Director is designed to allow the binding of
Avid ISIS storage only. Avid has not published its ISIS file system specifications, protocols, or ISIS file system
API’s used among the components of the file system (ISIS System Director, ISIS client, ISIS storage expansion
engines) and these are subject to change without notice. Therefore, any connection of third party storage as part of
an ISIS file system is not a licensed, approved or supported configuration.
The following table provides a list of product clients and infrastructure component software versions needed to
work with Avid ISIS.
n
Most Windows editing clients require the 1 Gb Intel Pro 1000 Ethernet board to connect to the Avid ISIS system.
Macintosh clients and some Windows clients have been qualified to use the on-board 1 Gb ports. For instructions
on installing the board and software, see for Avid ISIS Client Guide.

Intel Ethernet Drivers
Intel Pro Ethernet adapter boards are recommended for most Windows based editing systems that connect to the
Avid ISIS system. The Intel Pro 1000 PT and Intel i350 T2 are copper interfaces and the Intel Pro 1000 PF is an
optical interface. The Intel driver qualified in this release is included in the Avid ISIS software installer kit
(\Drivers\ISIS xxxx\Intel_Pro1000 folder). Check the driver version listed in the Windows Control Panel
on your Windows clients and ISIS System Directors.
For ISIS | 5500 and ISIS 5000 Engines, the Intel Pro 1000 board requires Intel driver v14.7. The Intel driver is
automatically updated and configured on the ISIS | 5500 System Director and Engines when you install the ISIS |
5500 Software.
If you are not running the Intel Pro v17.4 driver (v18.6 is required for Windows 8.1 on specific platforms), run the
Intel_17.4_Winxxxx_xx.exe installer file.
c
Do not update the Intel drivers on Avid Interplay Engine cluster unless instructed to do so by the Interplay
ReadMe or by Customer Support. Doing so could compromise the integrity of the cluster.

Known Issues
The following are known issues with the Avid ISIS software.
Common ISIS Infrastructure Issues
The following are known issues that could happen in all Avid ISIS infrastructures. When a workaround exists, it
appears in the paragraph directly following the issue description.
➤
Deleting large numbers of files during a redistribution can result in some blocks not getting deleted correctly,
resulting in a mismatch between the Workspace and Storage Group sizes.
Workaround: Performing a block rectify operation after the redistribution is complete resolves the issue and
cleans up the undeleted blocks.
➤
At the end of a redistribution, depending on the number of blocks that have moved and the total number of blocks
that exist, the Progress Bar flickers and the system sometimes appears to be stalled as the Storage Managers make
their final pass across the data set.
Workaround: You can ignore the behavior of the Progress Bar. The redistribution will complete normally.
➤
Email notification settings are not replicated to the Standby System Director.
Workaround: Configure Notification Services on both the Active and the Standby System Director.

Known Issues
➤
In ISIS | 5500 and ISIS | 2500 environments, if you add another Engine to the system (which starts a
redistribution) while clients are using AirSpeed, their capture or move operations can become extremely delayed.
Captures might stop, but moves can continue, potentially overwriting new data blocks with old blocks that are still
being moved by the redistribution process.
Workaround: To prevent old data overwriting new data during captures, start the Add redistribution before
clients attempt to perform captures or moves.
➤
If you are unable to start the Management Console in a browser, log into the System Director and launch the
Console from the Launch Pad.
➤
Chinese and Korean characters are not supported in the LDAP Sync Tool.
➤
When accessing the Storage Manager agent using a Chrome browser, you might receive a “This web page is not
available” message.
Workaround: Press the F5 key. The page will reload. At the “Site’s Security certificate is not trusted” window
click Proceed anyway.
➤

Client Issues
The following are known issues with the Avid ISIS v4.x client software. When a workaround exists, it appears in
the paragraph directly following the issue description. The ISIS infrastructure issues are documented in the
individual sections.
13
Known Issues
➤
On a Linux OS, right-clicking to access a context menu in the Management Console window does not work
properly. The context menu does not stay open when you right-click and release the mouse button.
Workaround: Keep the right-click button applied while scrolling through the menu options.
➤
On a Red Hat Linux client, if the Management Console will not launch from the Client Manager, open a browser
window to log into the ISIS.
➤
When installing the Client Manager on Mac OS X v10.9 you might receive the following message: “Kernel
Extension is not from an identified developer.” The Client Manager will install successfully if you continue
through the install process.
➤
When using Nautilus (the default file browser included with Red Hat Enterprise Linux v6.2), clients might
experience long wait times browsing folders containing files that do not have a file extension.
Workaround: If using files without extensions, limit the number of files per folder.
➤
If one workspace in Client Manager is mounted by Mapping a Network drive in Windows, when you unmount the
workspace and then mount a different workspace in Client Manager manually using the same drive letter,
Windows Explorer displays the previous workspace name instead of the new workspace name.
➤
The estimated amount of space available (usually measured in an amount of time at a particular resolution) might
differ between what Avid ISIS calculates and what the Avid editing system calculates.
Avid ISIS accurately reports the amount of space available for file storage.
The Avid editing application accounts for overhead in formatting of the media and is more conservative in
reporting how much space is available.
➤
The Macintosh Finder might display the Avid ISIS folder contents incorrectly, such as the contents of folders
containing items whose name includes a pound sign (#) followed by numeric characters. For example, “project #
12” might be erroneously displayed with some items duplicated and some items missing.
Workaround: Avid recommends avoiding the use of names that include a pound sign (#) followed by numeric
characters.
➤
Do not disconnect the PCI interface cable from either a Nitris DX or Mojo DX while it is powered up on the
Macintosh editing system. If Avid ISIS is running on this system and the cable is removed, the Macintosh
produces a kernel panic and reports ISIS as the problem. You must power down Macintosh before removing the
PCI interface cable between the Macintosh and the Nitris DX or Mojo DX. The only way to power down the
Nitris DX or Mojo DX system is to shut down the client connected to it.
➤
If playing two streams of media during a non-symmetrical full redistribution on an Avid editor with a Nitris DX or
Mojo DX attached, you will drop frames.
Workaround: You have the following options.
n
➤
•
Work with your media after the redistribution is finished.
•
Start the Management Console Tool and suspend the redistribution. Finish working with your media and then
resume the redistribution.
Do not leave the redistribution in a suspended state for an extended period of time.
The Path Diagnostics customized setting for Posix tests does not work correctly on the Macintosh clients.

Known Issues
Workaround: Use the default option to automatically select the File Access Method instead.
ISIS | 7500 - 7000 Infrastructure Issues
The following are known issues with the Avid ISIS | 7500 - 7000 infrastructure. When a workaround exists, it
appears in the paragraph directly following the issue description.
➤
In some circumstances, the Management Console can become unresponsive. To regain access, log into the System
Director and restart the Avid ISIS Administration Server. Client connections will not be affected, but you must log
back in to the Management Console.
➤
When reading media to do a mixdown on a “Westmere” Macintosh client with the Client Type set to Low
Resolution in the Client Manager > Preferences > General settings, the Macintosh client might become
unresponsive.
Workaround: Switch the Client Type setting to Medium Resolution or High Resolution.
➤
If the ISIS Management Console is opened from the Client Manager, and an Avid ISIS System Director failover
occurs while the ISIS Management Console is open, the ISIS Management Console does not automatically
reconnect to the new Active System Director.
Workaround: After the Client Manager reconnects to the new Active System Director, open the ISIS
Management Console from the Client Manager to connect to the new Active System Director.
➤
When attempting to consolidate media from an Avid editing client on a RAID workspace that has a failed ISB, the
consolidate function in the editing application might fail with an Exception error.
Workaround: If the ISB failure cannot be repaired within your time frame, retry the consolidation again. The
failure is intermittent.
➤
When the maximum number of licensed users are logged in to the Avid ISIS environment and another client
attempts to log in, a “User authentication failed” error is displayed.
The message should state that the maximum number of licenses has been reached.
➤
Removing a chassis from an ISIS | 7500 (or ISIS 7000) stack does not clear the engine configuration from the
removed chassis.
Use the Reset Factory defaults button to clear stack configuration information on the removed chassis.
➤
When in the Advanced tab of the Switch Agent page, if you select Switch Blade > “Reset to factory defaults” and
enter the password to confirm the reset, one of the two switches in the engine becomes the master and the other
switch keeps restarting.
Workaround: Log into the ISS Agent on the new master, click the System tab and select Basic, then click
Submit in the Chassis Configuration window.
➤
If a redistribution stops after a Storage Manager has failed, it can indicate that the system is trying to fix parity
blocks that no longer exist.
Workaround: Suspend and resume an in-progress redistribution to do a Block Rectify, using the Advanced
Commands options available on the Workspaces page. The following steps are summarized. For detailed
instructions, see the Avid ISIS Administration Guide.
15
Known Issues
c
Do not allow the RAID 6 redistribution to stay suspended for indefinite periods of time. Once the rectify
completes, immediately resume the redistributions across all Workspaces.
To suspend a redistribution and rectify blocks:
1. Suspend a redistribution: Management Console > Workspaces > Advanced Commands and select Suspend
Redistribution.
2. Rectify files: Management Console > Storage Elements > Command and select Initiate Block Rectify.
3. Resume the redistribution: Management Console > Workspaces > Advanced Commands and select Resume

➤
In the Management Console on the Engines page, the values in the Free Memory and Total Memory are reversed;
the Free Memory column displays the total memory, and the Total Memory column displays the amount of free
memory.
File Gateway Issues
The following are known issues with the Avid File Gateway. When a workaround exists, it appears in the
paragraph directly following the issue description.
➤
Macintosh CIFS Clients connected to the Avid ISIS File Gateway clients using the Terminal application hang
when attempting to create a filename with invalid characters. Invalid characters are as follows:
? * < > | : " \ /
This hang occurs on Mac OS 10.6.2 and later.
Workaround: You must force quit or restart the Macintosh Finder to clear the copy dialog box.
➤
If copying between the Avid ISIS File Gateway and a Macintosh CIFS client and the “share name” is renamed in
the configuration file (on File Gateway server), the copy operation on the Macintosh client gets interrupted with
an appropriate error message. Clicking OK closes the error message but the copy dialog remains displayed
although nothing is being copied. Clicking cancel on the copy dialog also does not close the dialog box. The CIFS
share cannot be ejected since it still appears to be in use.

New in Avid ISIS v4.6.1
Workaround: You must force quit or restart the Macintosh Finder to clear the copy dialog box.
➤
When ISIS File Gateway clients map ISIS Workspaces to their client systems, the Used and Free space values
displayed in the Windows Properties window and the Macintosh Get Info window are not accurate.
New in Avid ISIS v4.6.1
Integrity Hardening
The ISIS v4.6.1 patch kit offers improvements in data protection when a Storage Manager cannot write to its peer
and becomes unresponsive to the rest of the system.
Auto-Rectify Option
The ISIS v4.6.1 patch kit includes a new option in the Management Console. You can now enable Auto-Rectify,
which automatically reconciles the actual amount of used space and the reported amount of used space on a

New in Avid ISIS v4.6
Fixed in v4.6.1
➤
If the scratch drive in Final Cut Pro was set to an ISIS Workspace and any video or audio effect was rendered,
“error: not found” was displayed when the render completed. This was caused by a change in how the Finder
Info is used for rendered media files between Final Cut Pro 6 and 7. ISIS now allows rendering to an ISIS
workspace for both FCP 6 and FCP 7. Older FCP 6 projects may need to re-render effects if the rendered files
reside in an ISIS workspace.
➤
Media write issue on the Mac client, seen when doing AS11 exports from Media Composer. The exported file had
inconsistencies and AMA-linking displayed an error message saying the plug-in does not support the file.
➤
Issue on ISIS client installation of AirSpeed5000. Under some circumstances, the Performance Monitor database
in the registry got corrupted, causing the installation of the ISIS Performance Monitor counters to fail.
➤
Removing an ISIS7000 blade and unbinding it before redistribution completed resulted in hung clients.
➤
Microsoft hotfix available for ISIS | 5500 - 5000 systems. The v4.6.1 Autorun installer contains Microsoft hotfix
KB2685007, which corrects an issue with ISIS | 5500 - 5000 systems running Windows Storage Server R2. For
details about the hotfix, see the following URL: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2685007/EN-US.
➤
During board replacement, an ISB incorrectly advertised itself as an i500. Now the ISB displays a generic type
until the metadata has been read and the actual ISB type is known to the system.
➤
Could not access all data on an ISIS | 7500 - 7000 with one failed drive. In v4.6.1 and later, if the Storage Manager
is bound, it is allowed to run with only the one good drive (in the active but disk failed state) so that data can be
retrieved from it.
➤
Upgrading a half-populated ISIS 2000 fails to complete the file system metadata conversion. This occurs when
upgrading from v4.2 to v4.5 or v4.6.
➤
ISIS client hang introduced in ISIS v4.6. The hang occurred on both Mac and Windows clients while doing
consolidates, transcodes, and playback, especially variable speed playback. In v4.6, to clear the error you had to
reboot the system. This issue has been fixed.
➤
Could not perform Send-To-Playback operation on a sequence containing media being ingested. Job was static for
several minutes then failed with “Transfer Cancelled” error message. This issue was found in v4.6 and fixed in
v4.6.1.

Special Notes
The following is a list of what’s new in the Avid ISIS v4.6 release.
n
•
This release supports the ISIS 7500 128TB Engine.
•
Avid has added support for Windows v8.1 and Mac OSX v10.9.2 or earlier.
If you are running Windows v8.1, a new driver is required for configurations running with an Intel 1 Gb Network
adapter. This driver v18.6 is included in the ISIS Installation Kit: \Drivers\ISIS Client. Note: Currently, the v18.6
driver has only been qualified with Windows v18.1.
•
The Login Dialog. The login dialog has changed to eliminate the need to manually type in the protocol and
port. The application will automatically figure out the connection settings based on the host name and type of
application.
•
Storage Manager Log Viewer: The Storage Manager Log Viewer is now incorporated into the ISIS Toolbox
application. It is no longer a standalone application. As part of the Toolbox, you no longer have to log in to
every single blade to view the log. All the logs for the blades within the ISIS system can be managed from this
one location.
Special Notes
This section contains important information about the Avid ISIS environment.
User Permissions
A user account with Administrator privileges is required to install Avid ISIS client software on your workstations.
Avid Interplay Authentication
Avid Interplay Authentication requires the Avid ISIS System Director to use a virtual name. The System
Director’s virtual name must not match the actual host name and must be entered in the General Configuration
Options dialog box. For instructions on adding the virtual name, search the Avid ISIS Administration Guide for
General Configuration Options.
Avid Interplay Copy Service and Move Service in Zone 3
The Avid Interplay Copy Service and Move Service using an AS3000 or the SR2500 Interplay Copy/Move server
with a single 10 Gb Myricom board installed has been qualified in Zone 3 of the ISIS | 7500 - 7000 and ISIS |
5500 environments. This qualification requires the ISIS 7000 v2.4, ISIS 5000 v3.2, or ISIS v4.x infrastructures
with ISIS v3.5 and later client software.
LDAP Requires Unicode User Names and Passwords
The Avid implementation of LDAP (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol) requires that you restrict LDAP user
names and passwords to ASCII. The LDAP/ISIS Account Synchronizer searches for groups and their users on an
LDAP server and synchronizes (reconciles) user and group accounts by adding or removing users and/or groups
from ISIS,
19
Special Notes
Fast User Switching Not Supported
Fast User Switching is a Windows feature that allows multiple user accounts to log on to a computer
simultaneously. Fast User Switching is enabled by default in Windows computers. The Fast User Switching
feature and multiple concurrent logged on user modes are not supported in the Avid ISIS environment. The ISIS
software does not distinguish the different drive letters mapped to the same workspaces on the same computer.
Conflicts appear in the following two scenarios:
•
When one user maps a drive letter to one workspace and another user maps the same drive letter to a different
workspace
•
When one user maps a workspace to one drive letter, and another user maps a different drive letter for the
same workspace.
Avid ISIS Firewall
Avid ISIS ships with the Windows Firewall turned off. For a list of the ports used in the Avid ISIS, see the Avid
Network and Switch Guide. This guide is available from the installer Documentation link, the Management
Console Help link, and the \AvidISISDocumentation folder in the ISIS software kit.
Multiple ISIS Systems Must be on Separate Networks
If you are setting up multiple ISIS shared storage systems, make sure that each system is on a separate network.
Macintosh Resource Files and Windows Clients
If Macintosh files are copied to a Windows system with the Macintosh resource fork files, the resource fork files
cannot be copied to mounted workspaces from a Windows client. Avid ISIS does not accept Macintosh resource
fork files from Windows clients. Appropriate “properties” error messages are displayed if this is attempted.
Adobe Premiere Pro Software Approved
Avid has tested Adobe Premiere Pro as a client in the Avid ISIS | 7500 - 7000 and ISIS | 5500 - 5000 shared
storage environments. The ISIS | 2500 - 2000 only supports Adobe Premiere Pro in push/pull workflows. The
following guidelines and restrictions apply to Adobe Premiere clients.
•
Adobe Premiere was qualified on Windows 7 64-bit and Macintosh v10.7.3 64-bit operating systems.
•
Adobe Premiere 10 Gb clients are not supported.
•
Avid ISIS supports Adobe Premiere Pro clients in Zones 1, 2, and 3.
•
Media from both Adobe Premier and Avid Media Composer are able to co-exist in the same Storage Group.
Although for optimal performance, you should not mix Avid and Adobe Premier editors in the same Storage
Group.
•
Adobe Premiere clients follow the same guidelines as for Avid editors in regards to the Avid ISIS Client
Manager Preference settings. The default Client Type setting is set to Medium Resolution (limited to
resolutions that draw 16 MB/s or less). Use the High Resolution setting when working with High Definition
media (resolutions that draw higher than 16 MB/s). There are some HD resolutions that draw less than 16
MB/s for a single stream, but you should still use the High Resolution setting (for example, XDCAMHD 50).
For information on how many streams were qualified per client at various resolutions, see the Avid ISIS
Performance Guide on the Knowledge Base at www.avid.com/support.
20
Avid ISIS | 7500 - 7000 Special Notes
Final Cut Pro X Software Approved
Avid has tested Final Cut Pro X as a client in the Avid ISIS | 7500 - 7000 and
ISIS | 5500 - 5000 shared storage environments. The ISIS | 2500 - 2000 only supports Final Cut Pro in push/pull
workflows. There is no Avid restriction on the QuickTime version. Use the QuickTime version recommended in
the Final Cut Pro application. Avid ISIS supports Final Cut Pro X Macintosh clients in Zones 1, 2, and 3. For
information on how many streams were qualified per client at various resolutions, see the Avid ISIS Performance
Guide on the Knowledge Base at www.avid.com/support.
n
Avid Interplay Access supports the Mac OSX platform, and through this application Final Cut Pro QuickTime files
and projects can be checked into Interplay. Any Interplay workstation can search for these files and edit their
Interplay metadata, though there is currently no tightly integrated workflow between Avid Media Composer and
Final Cut Pro within Interplay.
Virus Protection
Windows updates are not installed automatically on the System Director. If you are connected to the Internet, Avid
recommends you manually select your Windows updates and install them during a scheduled maintenance
intervals. Some updates require that you restart the System Director. In addition, anti-virus programs that contain
autoscanning features (for example File System Auto-protect or scanning files on network drives) are not
supported.
Access the Knowledge Base at www.avid.com/securityupdate and review the Microsoft Security Bulletin
Addendum document. This link also includes anti-virus software support on Avid products which can be found in
the Avid Security Guidelines and Best Practices document.
c
Virus protection software and Windows updates will result in workflow interruptions, and should be
performed during a scheduled maintenance interval.
Uninterruptible Power Supply
Avid highly recommends using an Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) with all Avid ISIS components.
Without a UPS if you lose power while capturing media, some data loss for newly captured media will likely
occur. The recently written data in the RAID controller that has not been written out to the data drives would be
lost.
Avid ISIS | 7500 - 7000 Special Notes
The following list applies to Avid ISIS | 7500 - 7000 infrastructures:
Upgrading Unstacked Switches
If you need to upgrade switches that are not yet stacked, the Avid ISIS software kit includes the Avid ISIS
Upgrade Utility. This stand-alone application allows field engineers to start and monitor the installation of switch
and ISB upgrades from a laptop connected to Avid ISIS switch through the management port. This utility does not
replace the current upgrade process. Its primary function is for upgrading a switch or a pair of switches that is
incompatible with an existing stacked network. Insertion of these switches into the network before the upgrade
could disrupt or compromise the network’s operation. For instruction on using the utility, see the Avid ISIS | 7500
- 7000 Setup Guide.
The Avid ISIS Upgrade Utility (AvidUnityISISTools.msi) is in the Avid ISIS software kit in the

client port, a “semaphore time-out” error message appears.
Avid ISIS | 5500 - 5000 Special Notes
The following list applies to Avid ISIS | 5500 - 5000 infrastructures:
Applying the Microsoft HotFix KB2685007 on Windows 7
Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows 7 are both affected by a UDP issue which restricts maximum throughput
of ISIS clients connecting with ISIS| 7500 - 7000. This is relevant to all ISIS 4.x versions before March 2014, but
has not been tested on earlier versions.
This situation exists in ISIS Client versions up to V4.6.x and may be addressed/applied in later ISIS client
versions during the installation sequence.
Microsoft has issued a HotFix which is targeted to Windows Server 2008 R2, but can be applied to Windows 7
clients, and results in an approximate 45% maximum speed improvement.
The Microsoft Knowledge Base article (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2685007/EN-US) is written from the
perspective of Windows Server 2008 R2 and not Windows 7; hence it is not possible to follow the procedure given
by Microsoft, but using the modified procedure below you can improve system performance.
To download the hotfix, you must supply a valid email address, to which the link will be sent.
Follow the instructions to download the hotfix. Do not click the “Fix it for me” link; this does not work on
Windows 7. Instead, run the file named 447595_intl_x64_zip.exe and specify a path to a location on the client
system.
Navigate to that path and run the file Windows6.1-KB2685007-x64.msu, then use the following procedure to
create a new registry value.
To manually create a new registry value:
1. Click Start, and type regedit in the Search programs and files box, then press Enter. If prompted for an
administrative password, enter it.
2. Locate and click the following registry sub key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\BFE\Parameters\
3. On the Edit menu, click New, then click DWORD Value.
4. Type MaxEndpointCountMult, and then press Enter.
5. Right-click MaxEndpointCountMult, and then click Modify.
6. In the Value data box, type 10 (for Base, select Decimal), and then click OK.
n
The MaxEndpointCountMult registry value is a multiplication factor that applies to the default scavenge value of
15,000. You can set the MaxEndpointCountMult registry value from 1 to 50,000. The recommended value is 10.
7. Exit the Registry Editor.
8. Reboot the client system.

Avid ISIS | 2500 - 2000 Special Notes
Single Engine Configurations with Routed Clients
For single engine ISIS | 5500 - 5000 configurations that include routed clients (Layer 3 to the ISIS 5500 | 5000),
the Engine can be connected to the switch using either 10 Gb or 4 x 1Gb.
Avid ISIS | 2500 - 2000 Special Notes
The following list applies to Avid ISIS | 2500 - 2000 infrastructures:
Moving Workspaces
The following list describes the supported methods for moving data between online (ISIS | 7500 - 7000 and ISIS |
5500 - 5000) and nearline (ISIS | 2500 - 2000) Workspaces.
•
Interplay Workflows
Avid Interplay v2.6 and v2.7 have been qualified in the Avid ISIS v4.5 ISIS environments. You can move
assets from one ISIS system to another using Interplay workflows. The Interplay Media Services is required.
Interplay workgroups with a single IP Database for multiple ISIS configurations can use the Interplay
Transcode and Interplay Move services to move media. To move media between Interplay workgroup
configurations, use Interplay Copy, Interplay Delivery, and Interplay Transfer.
•
AirSpeed Workflows
Avid AirSpeed 5000 v2.1, AirSpeed Multi Stream v1.8.6 and AirSpeed v2.7.12 have been qualified in the
Avid ISIS v4.5 ISIS environments. The AirSpeed 5000 can capture high resolution to online environments,
and proxy to nearline environments (or proxy to online and high resolution on nearline). This allows you
place material directly to where you need it and not have to move it.
•
Editor Workflows
Editors can move clips and sequences between ISIS workspaces using the Consolidate/Transcode feature, In
addition, with online and nearline workspaces mounted on a single client, you can drag files from one
workspace to another.
n
Moving files in an Interplay shared storage environment from a client at the file system level could be detrimental
to system operations. Us e Interplay Media Services applications when moving files in an Interplay shared storage
environment.
•
Data Migration Utility Workflows
The Data Migration Utility can be used to move complete Workspaces between ISIS infrastructures. You can
use the Data Migration utility to move Workspaces between any combination of ISIS 7500 | 7000, ISIS 5500 |
5000, and ISIS | 2500 - 2000 systems; this includes mirrored, RAID 6, HW RAID (ISIS 5500 RAID 5), SW
RAID (ISIS | 2500 - 2000 RAID 6), and unprotected Workspace. For instructions on setting up and using the
Data Migration Utility see the Avid ISIS Client Guide.
When Workspaces are migrated, the protection type is inherited from the ISIS system. For example,
Workspaces migrated to ISIS | 5500 inherit RAID 5 protection. Workspaces migrated to ISIS | 2500 - 2000
inherit RAID 6 protection. Workspaces migrated to ISIS | 7500 - 7000 inherit mirrored protection by default.
