    Chetan - you're absolutely correct.

    I also agree. Here is simple example: when we merge servers to a hive, only administrator can see camera-to-server assignment, while all other users can only see the total camera list? Just imagine 50 sites/locations (servers), each with 10 cameras. Then on the left side we can see a total huge list of 500 cameras, instead of much simpler list of 50 servers with expanding list of their own cameras.

    Just to add to my above post -- I feel the resources list should be location based instead of server based. While a server-based list is good for the engineer, its no use for the security operator. An option to switch between Server/Location would be ideal

    Fredrik - The problem arises when you have a Multi site, multi building, multi floor and multi section project. A single dimension layout tree is just not enough

    If I did not totally missunderstand what you are asking here, maybe this can help. For the operator you can create a layout for each location and add all the cameras to that layout. Then cameras will show under the respective layout (Location) in the resource list in the left. I use this method a lot to orgainze cameras for operators.

    In 4.2 we are going to display servers in the tree for all users. Non-admin users will be able to see the server monitor items, but not move cameras between servers and edit server settings.

    We will also think about introducing additional grouping, but we'll have to somehow workaround problems with failover, which causes cameras to jump from one server to another, and it's unclear how groups should look like in this case.

    I also agree. Would like to see at least a Site level added. eg. Site -> Servers -> Cameras. At the moment our Admins and Users that monitor cameras over multiple sites, have to logout of one site and login to another site to see all the cameras. All on one page would be good.
