This guide is meant to walk users through the process of assigning and IP address and merging the Nx1 into a new or existing Nx Witness system.
- This guide is for users who have already installed a hard drive into their Nx1 device. If you have not already installed a hard drive instructions for hard drive installation can be found here.
- If you haven't already, download and install the Nx Server Tool (32 bit or 64 bit) on your Windows computer.
- If you have already installed the Nx Server Tool...launch it.
- Make sure your Windows computer is connected to the same network as your Nx1 device or devices before moving onto the steps below.
Step 1: Nx1 Auto Detection
- The Nx Server Tool will automatically detect all Nx1 devices on a LAN.
- Detected Nx1 devices (as well as any other device running an Nx Witness Media Server) will show up on the left side of the Nx Server Tool.
Step 2 - Nx1 Batch Configuration
- Select all Nx1s you would like to configure to modify Nx1 System Name and Password and Date & Time settings.
- Nx1s can be set up as a new System or joined to an existing system. To join to an existing system simply put the existing System name and Admin password into the Nx Server Tool.
Step 3 - Confirm changes have been applied successfully.
- After applying changes you will see a change log of all configuration modifications made to the Nx1 devices.
- Click Ok to continue.
Step 4 - Confirm System Assignment.
- In the left side of the Nx Server Tool you should now see the Nx1s as part of a new system or the System they were merged into.
Step 5 - View your Nx1's in Nx Witness.
- Launch Nx Witness on your computer and login to your new (or existing) system to confirm the Nx1s have been successfully configured.
Step 6 - Update your Nx1's to the latest version of Nx Witness.
- Head to the main menu button and choose System Administration -> Updates
- Make sure your Nx1 is updated to Nx Witness Build 9580 or higher. (Use build 9580 and password h61xku)
Step 7 - Give yourself a thumbs up. You're done.
- If you have a camera connected and you can see yourself give yourself a thumbs up for a job well done, because you've successfully configured your Nx1(s).
