Solution

Set [User Management] Tab

[User Management] tab in the [Storage Server Configuration] dialog allows you to set up users and their privileges.

How to Display the [User Management] Tab

Double-click the [Storage Server Configuration] desktop icon.

The [Storage Server Configuration] dialog appears and the [Settings] tab is displayed.

Click the [User Management] tab to open it.

Administrator and Operator Status User

Administrators can access to the Viewer to perform Camera Server setup, recording schedules and Viewer setup.

Operator Status Users can only access the Viewer windows created by Administrator. Also, they only can access to live video and recorded video on Storage Servers they have permission to access.

Note

  • Users who have Operator Status cannot configure, register and change Camera Servers, or configure and change recording schedules.
  • By default, a user called "admin" is created. Its password is "NVR". It is strongly recommended to change the user name and password after installation.
  • It is necessary to set up user settings on all Storage Servers. A particular user, who operates multiple recording servers, should be set up to have the same password on each Storage Server.
