Can the hard drive storage of a DSSRV with a DVD player be upgraded?

Issue

Can the hard drive storage of a DSSRV with a DVD player be upgraded?

Product Line

Pelco Video Management

Environment

  • DSSRV
  • DSSRV-XXXDVD
  • DSSRV-RD-XX
  • DSSRV DVD
  • DSSRV RAID

Cause

DSSRV currently has 9TB and want to upgrade to 18TB.

Resolution

The DSSRV with a DVD-RW optical drive supports a maximum of FOUR 3TB internal hard drives. Total storage amount for JBOD systems is 12TB, total storage amount for RAID systems is 9TB (this is due to one 3TB hard drive being used for parity).

DSSRV Spec sheet  On page 3 under System section describes configuration.

Note: The physical configuration (chassis) of the DSSRV and DVD-RW optical drive cannot be changed, a new DSSRV will have to be ordered.
