6.4 Cluster Service

The cluster function, also known as cluster redundancy, is a kind of deployment method that can improve the reliability of the device. In the cluster system, there is a number of main devices and another number of sub devices (the N+M mode), and they have a virtual IP address (the cluster IP).

When the main device fails, the corresponding sub device will take over the job automatically. When the main device recovers, the sub device will transmit the configuration data, cluster IP address and videos recorded during the failure to the main device which then takes over the job again.

In the N+M cluster system, there is a management server, the DCS (Dispatching Console) server, which is responsible for timely and correct scheduling management of the main and sub devices.

When you create a cluster, the current device is used as the first sub device and the DCS server by default.

This function is available on select models.

6.4.1 Configuring Cluster IP

When the main device malfunctions, the sub device can use the main device configuration and virtual IP address to replace the work (monitor or record) accordingly. When you use the virtual IP to access the device, you can still view the real-time video and there is no risk of record loss.

Step 1 Log in to the web as the admin user.

● DHCP : DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) is one of the TCP/IP protocol cluster. It is mainly used to assign temporary IP addresses to computers on a network.

● DDNS : DDNS (Dynamic Domain Name Server) is a service that maps Internet domain names to IP addresses. This service is useful to anyone who wants to operate a server (web server, mail server, ftp server and more.) connected to the internet with a dynamic IP or to someone who wants to connect to an office computer or server from a remote location with software.

● eSATA : eSATA (External Serial AT) is an interface that provides fast data transfer for external storage devices. It is the extension specifications of a SATA interface.

● GPS : GPS (Global Positioning System) is a satellite system, protected by the US, safely orbiting thousands of kilometers above the earth.

● PPPoE : PPPoE (Point to Point Protocol over Ethernet) is a specification for connecting multiple computer users on an Ethernet local area network to a remote site. Now the popular mode is

ADSL and it adopts PPPoE protocol.

● Wi-Fi : Wi-Fi is the name of a popular wireless networking technology that uses radio waves to provide wireless high-speed Internet and network connections. The standard is for wireless local area networks (WLANs). It is like a common language that all the devices use to communicate to each other. It is actually IEEE802.11, a family of standard The IEEE (Institute of Electrical and

Electronics Engineers Inc.)

● 3G : 3G is the wireless network standard. It is called 3G because it is the third generation of cellular telecom standards. 3G is a faster network for phone and data transmission and speed Is over several hundred kbps. Now there are four standards: CDMA2000, WCDMA, TD-SCDMA and

WiMAX.

● Dual-stream : The dual-stream technology adopts high-rate bit stream for local HD storage such as QCIF/CIF/2CIF/DCIF/4CIF encode and one low-rate bit stream for network transmission such as

QCIF/CIF encode. It can balance the local storage and remote network transmission. The dualstream can meet the difference band width requirements of the local transmission and the remote transmission. In this way, the local transmission using high-bit stream can achieve HD storage and the network transmission adopting low bit stream suitable for the fluency requirements of the 3G network such as WCDMA, EVDO, TD-SCDMA.

Questions

I cannot connect to the IPC

After I set the NVR resolution as 1080P, my monitor cannot display.

My admin account has been changed and I cannot log in.

Reasons

● Make sure that the IPC has booted up.

● IPC network connection is right and it is online

● IPC IP is in the blocklist.

● The device has connected to the too many IPC. It cannot transmit the video.

● Check the IPC port value and the time zone is the same as the NVR.

● Make sure current network environment is stable.

Shut down the device and then reboot. When you reboot, press the Fn button at the same time and then release after 5 seconds. You can restore NVR resolution to the default setup.

Use telnet and then input the following command: cd /mnt/mtd/Config/ rm -rf group rm -rf password

Reboot the device to restore the default password.

After I login the Web, I cannot find the remote interface to add the IPC.

Clear the Web controls and load again.

There is IP and gateway, I can access the internet via the router. But I cannot access the internet after I reboot the NVR.

I use the VGA monitor. I want to know if I use the multiplewindow mode, I see the video from the main stream or the sub stream?

Use command PING to check you can connect to the gateway or not. Use telnet to access and then use command "ifconfig–a" to check device IP address. If you see the subnet mask and the gateway has changed after the reboot. Upgrade the applications and set again.

● For 32-channel series product, the 9/16-window is using the sub stream.

● For 4/8/16 series product, system is using the main stream no matter you are in what display mode.

Daily Maintenance

● Use the brush to clean the board, socket connector and the chassis regularly.

● The device shall be soundly earthed in case there is audio/video disturbance. Keep the device away from the static voltage or induced voltage.

● Unplug the power cable before you remove the audio/video signal cable, RS-232 or RS-485 cable.

● Do not connect the TV to the local video output port (VOUT). It might result in video output circuit.

● Always shut down the device properly. Use the shutdown function in the menu, or you can press the power button in the rear pane for at least three seconds to shut down the device. Otherwise it might result in HDD malfunction.

● Make sure the device is away from the direct sunlight or other heating sources. Keep the sound ventilation.

● Check and maintain the device regularly.

Appendix 5 Cybersecurity Recommendations

Cybersecurity is more than just a buzzword: it’s something that pertains to every device that is connected to the internet. IP video surveillance is not immune to cyber risks, but taking basic steps toward protecting and strengthening networks and networked appliances will make them less susceptible to attacks. Below are some tips and recommendations from Dahua on how to create a more secured security system.

Mandatory actions to be taken for basic device network security:

1.

Use Strong Passwords

Please refer to the following suggestions to set passwords:

● The length should not be less than 8 characters.

● Include at least two types of characters; character types include upper and lower case letters, numbers and symbols.

● Do not contain the account name or the account name in reverse order.

● Do not use continuous characters, such as 123, abc, etc.

● Do not use overlapped characters, such as 111, aaa, etc.

2.

Update Firmware and Client Software in Time

● According to the standard procedure in Tech-industry, we recommend to keep your device

(such as NVR, DVR, IP camera, etc.) firmware up-to-date to ensure the system is equipped with the latest security patches and fixes. When the device is connected to the public network, it is recommended to enable the "auto-check for updates" function to obtain timely information of firmware updates released by the manufacturer.

● We suggest that you download and use the latest version of client software.

"Nice to have" recommendations to improve your device network security:

1.

Physical Protection

We suggest that you perform physical protection to device, especially storage devices. For example, place the device in a special computer room and cabinet, and implement well-done access control permission and key management to prevent unauthorized personnel from carrying out physical contacts such as damaging hardware, unauthorized connection of removable device (such as USB flash disk, serial port), etc.

2.

Change Passwords Regularly

We suggest that you change passwords regularly to reduce the risk of being guessed or cracked.

3.

Set and Update Passwords Reset Information Timely

The device supports password reset function. Please set up related information for password reset in time, including the end user’s mailbox and password protection questions. If the information changes, please modify it in time. When setting password protection questions, it is suggested not to use those that can be easily guessed.

4.

Enable Account Lock

The account lock feature is enabled by default, and we recommend you to keep it on to guarantee the account security. If an attacker attempts to log in with the wrong password several times, the corresponding account and the source IP address will be locked.

5.

Change Default HTTP and Other Service Ports

We suggest you to change default HTTP and other service ports into any set of numbers between

394

User's Manual

1024–65535, reducing the risk of outsiders being able to guess which ports you are using.

6.

Enable HTTPS

We suggest you to enable HTTPS, so that you visit Web service through a secure communication channel.

7.

MAC Address Binding

We recommend you to bind the IP and MAC address of the gateway to the device, thus reducing the risk of ARP spoofing.

8.

Assign Accounts and Privileges Reasonably

According to business and management requirements, reasonably add users and assign a minimum set of permissions to them.

9.

Disable Unnecessary Services and Choose Secure Modes

If not needed, it is recommended to turn off some services such as SNMP, SMTP, UPnP, etc., to reduce risks.

If necessary, it is highly recommended that you use safe modes, including but not limited to the following services:

Audio and Video Encrypted Transmission

If your audio and video data contents are very important or sensitive, we recommend that you use encrypted transmission function, to reduce the risk of audio and video data being stolen during transmission.

Reminder: encrypted transmission will cause some loss in transmission efficiency.

Secure Auditing

● Check online users: we suggest that you check online users regularly to see if the device is logged in without authorization.

● Check device log: By viewing the logs, you can know the IP addresses that were used to log in to your devices and their key operations.

Network Log

Due to the limited storage capacity of the device, the stored log is limited. If you need to save the log for a long time, it is recommended that you enable the network log function to ensure that the critical logs are synchronized to the network log server for tracing.

Construct a Safe Network Environment

In order to better ensure the safety of device and reduce potential cyber risks, we recommend:

● Disable the port mapping function of the router to avoid direct access to the intranet devices from external network.

● The network should be partitioned and isolated according to the actual network needs. If there are no communication requirements between two sub networks, it is suggested to use

VLAN, network GAP and other technologies to partition the network, so as to achieve the network isolation effect.

● Establish the 802.1x access authentication system to reduce the risk of unauthorized access to private networks.

● Enable IP/MAC address filtering function to limit the range of hosts allowed to access the

device.
