Note: For DS-9000 model, if used as a NVR, it can support 4/8/16 4CIF IP cameras or 2/4/8 IP cameras at
HD720p or UXGA(half real-time) resolution.
Before configuring IP cameras, please ensure that all IP cameras are connected to the same network as your DVR
and that the network settings for your DVR is properly setup (See Configuring Network Settings). If the IP
cameras are not in the same LAN, please make sure the value of server port and RTSP port in IP cameras are
different with each other, and the ports mapping have been made properly.
To configure IP cameras:
1.
Enter the Camera Management menu, shown in Figure 1 by clicking Menu > Settings > Camera.
Figure 1. Camera Management Menu
2.
Determine number of analog channels to disable. Please note that in order to add more than 8 IP
cameras at 4CIF or 4 IP cameras at 720p/ UXGA resolution, you will need to disable some
analog channels. Disabling 2 analog channels will add 1 IP camera at 4CIF resolution, and
disabling 4 analog channels will add 1 IP camera at 720p/UXGA resolution.
3.
To disable analog channels, click the Status button to enter the Camera Enabled Status menu,
shown in Figure 2. Uncheck checkboxes to disable corresponding channels. Click OK to save
setting. A confirmation message will appear on the screen asking you to reboot the DVR. Click
Yes to reboot. After the system has rebooted, enter back into the Camera Management menu and

Note: This Chapter is available for DS-9000HFI-RH, DS-9100HFI-RH and DS-9600NI-RH models only.
Configuring RAID
The DS-9000/9100HFI-RH is capable of realizing Redundant Array of Independent Disk, supporting RAID0,
RAID1, RAID5 and RAID10 RAID types. Prior to operation, please install the array adapter and HDD properly.
It is recommended to use the same HDDs (including model and capacity) for array creation and configuration so
as to maintain reliable and stable running of the disks.
Note: The ST31000525SV/ST31000340NS HDD models are not supported for array configuration currently.
Creating Array
Before recording, it needs to create the array in the RAID menu.
One-touch Configuration
To configure array by One-touch Configuration:
1. Enter the RAID Settings menu, shown in Figure 1 by clicking Menu > Settings >RAID.
Figure 1. RAID Settings Menu
2.
Click the One-touch button to start array configuration.
Note: When the One-touch Array Configuration is selected, the device can automatically enable the installed
HDDs for array creation. As the default array type is RAID 5, thus at least 3 hard disks must be installed.
3. Edit the Array Name and then click the OK button to start array configuration.
Figure 2. One-touch Array Configuration
4.
When the array configuration is complete, click the OK button on the pop-up Attention box to

finish the settings.
Figure 3. One-touch Array Configuration is Complete
Note:
1) After completion of One-touch Configuration, the device will create 1 array and 8 virtual disks automatically.
And the array capacity will be equally allocated to each virtual disk.
2) By default, the foreground initialization is used when the configuration is finished. And the hard disk can be
used only after the initialization is complete.

Rebuilding Array
The working status of array includes Functional, Degraded and Offline. By viewing the array status, you can take
immediate and proper maintenance for the disks so as to ensure the high security and reliability of the data stored
in the disk array.
When there is no disk loss in the array, the working status of array will change to Functional; when the number of
lost disks has exceeded the limit, the working status of array will change to Offline; in other conditions, the
working status is Degraded.
When the array is in Degraded status, user can restore it to Functional by array rebuilding.
Note: If there is no virtual disk created in the array and no physical HDD exception exists, then it doesn’t need
to rebuild the array when the array status restores to Functional.

Setting HDD Status
You may change the behavior of your HDD by changing its status. The status of a HDD can be set to redundancy,
read-only or read/write (R/W).
Setting HDD to Read-Only
A HDD can be set to read-only to avoid important recorded files from being overwritten when the HDD becomes

Note: Once set to read-only, the HDD cannot be written to until it is set back to read/write (R/W). If the HDD
that is currently being written to is set to read-only, the data will be recorded to the next HDD. If there is only one
HDD present, setting it to read-only will cause the DVR to not record.
Setting HDD to Redundancy
In order to use HDD redundancy on your DVR, you will need to have at least two disk installed. Setting up HDD
redundancy will allow your DVR to redundantly record a copy of the videos onto multiple drives as a safeguard
