Admin Roles limited to specific servers or "locations"

    Hi Jeff,

    Giving the permission to access the single server in a system is very challenging, because users, layouts, event rules, audit trail and other things don't belong to any server and are system-wide. It is possible to give access to single server settings, but it is mostly limited to storage management and failover, so, I assume, wouldn't help with you situation.

    What I see as a solution, and we have it in our roadmap is a feature we call "System Groups". With it it'd be possible to combine multiple systems in one group, and have ability to mange users and view cameras from multiple systems at a time, as well as to keep ability to manage each system separately – create system-specific users, layouts, set up rules, etc.

    Failover between systems won't work, but if servers and cameras in different locations (in different local networks) it shouldn't work anyway. 
    Can you confirm that failover does work in you case, and cameras from one location can be picked up by a server in another one?

    What do you think about System Groups? Will it solve your problem?

    If you want to know more details, you can write me at apats@networkoptix.com and we can arrange a more detailed presentation of the feature.

    Well in the case of the school system from the original post all those buildings are part of the same LAN.

    System Groups might work if there are users (at the top level) who can be a part of two or more System Groups at once and be able to see cameras from all systems in a single layout.

    Yes, users will be able be in multiple system groups at once.

    Viewing cameras from different systems within the same system group in a single layout can be possible (maybe not in the first version though).
    Viewing cameras from different system groups – likely not.

    Thank you!
