52 Software Q. What is the recommended server specification? 2015-07-06

51 Software Q. All ISS services[1] / IP devices/users have to be registered to an ISS Admin service. So, in a way, ISS Admin defines a boundary of an ISS System. 2015-07-06

When an ISS service is launched, it reports itself to its ISS Admin service to download its configuration information as well as connection information of other ISS services.
When you log in to an ISS system with ISS Client, you are logging into ISS Admin service, and then your ISS Client software is granted access to different IP devices, or services. ISS Client downloads information about where to find, how to connect to different devices or services using the directory of the Admin service.
ISS Admin service is a very crucial part of the ISS System. If the Admin service is down, all ISS Clients will lose their connection immediately. Recording service will continue to record IP video streams, but only for the IP video streams registered to itself because Recording service can not access Admin service that mediates Events from Monitoring service.

50 Software Q. What is the ISS Admin service? 2015-07-06

In an ISS System, you work with many IP devices, and then a group of ISS services that provide many different features and functions. You will use ISS Client to use ISS System.

All of these services are configured using ISS Setup after logging into the ISS Admin service. Typically, you would want to limit which user groups can access these configurations using ISS Setup to change the recording schedule or event schedules.

IP cameras/video encoders using ISS protocol and ISS compatible DVRs are supported in ISS Systems. Also, ONVIF and 3rd party cameras are supported by ISS Admin service.

You can have only one ISS Admin service in one ISS System. No separate per channel License is required for ISS Admin service as long as you have an ISS Recording License.

48 Video Recorder Q. DirectIP NVRs with Dual FW copies in the NAND Flash memory and how it works 2015-07-06

DirectIP NVR keeps two copies of FW and NVR setup(configuration) images on its NAND memory. Usually, its first copy is used for normal operation.

Once in a while, NAND Flash Memory may fail, causing the unit to fail to boot up properly to load the Linux/NVR apps. When a DirectIP NVR detects 20 consecutive booting failures, it switches its active partition to the second copy to load the FW/setup properly. (It takes about 45sec for a full booting for DR-4/6100, DR-4/6200 series, so rebooting 20 failures will take about 15 min or so)

First, try pinhole reset and if the unit continues to reboot, wait about 15 min or so.
