After devices are active, you can configure them. By exporting a device’s configuration, you can create a device configuration template which can be used to easily configure multiple devices.
If you upload a new configuration or firmware, you should reboot the device to ensure the settings are correct. See Rebooting a Device on DM 05: Installing Firmware.
These steps open a web page for the device itself. You must have logon credentials for that device to access its settings.
Depot Manager allows you many opportunities to uses configuration templates to make device configuration fast and easy. After you have configured a device, you can export that configuration as a template, and store it in the library. You can then use those saved configuration templates to configure one or multiple (in bulk) devices. See the Depot Manager User Guide for more information.
If you have a device configuration that could be applied to multiple devices, you can save that configuration as a template, then apply it to other devices.
Configuration file templates must be uploaded to the Configuration Library before they can be applied to multiple devices. You can apply a configuration file directly to a single device. Also, the Configuration Library is a good place to store known configurations for sharing with others.
Firmware can be uploaded to Depot Manager and installed on a single device or multiple devices. Get the files either from a field engineer or download them from the MobileView support website. Upload the firmware files to the Depot Manger library. Upgrades can be performed on a single device or in bulk to many similar devices at the same time.
Depot Manager allows you to apply a configuration template to multiple devices in an operation called Bulk Configuration. Bulk configuration uploads can be scheduled for a future time and date.
When selecting multiple devices for bulk configuration, they all must be the same device type.
If you upload a new configuration or firmware, you should reboot the device to ensure the settings are correct. See Rebooting a Device on Installing Firmware.
You can set up email alerts that let users know if a bulk device configuration has failed or successfully completed.
Ignoring devices is useful when using multiple depots operated by separate administrators or if certain devices need to be assigned to certain servers. To ignore devices, you assign them to the blacklist.
If you no longer want to ignore a certain device, you can remove it from the black list.
You can migrate data between similar devices when you have a recorder failure or defect which requires you to install a replacement recorder. Migrating the device data assigns all videos, diagnostics, tasks, and configurations from the failed device to the newly installed device.
