Can I copy the DigitalSENTRY servers list (dsservers.ini) from one PC that is running DS Admin to another?

Issue

A new client PC is being setup to run DS Admin.  In order to configure the system list on the new PC, does each server have to be manually added to the system?

Product Line

Pelco Video Management

Environment

  • DigitalSENTRY video server, all versions
  • New client PC being configured with DS Admin

Cause

Configuring a new client PC to run DS Admin.

Resolution

In order to copy the DigitalSENTRY server list from one PC to another, copy the dsservers.ini file from C:\Program Files\Pelco\DigitalSentry and paste it into the same location on the new system.

Note: If either of the two systems are running 64-bit architecture, the path will be changed slightly to C:\Program Files(x86)\Pelco\DigitalSentry.
