When configuring the NSM5200, what is the role of the failover IP address?

Issue

When configuring the NSM5200, what is the role of the failover IP address?

Product Line

Pelco Video Management

Environment

Endura NSM5200- All versions

Cause

Information regarding the role of the NSM5200 failover IP address is needed.

Resolution

The role of the failover IP address is a unique identifier for a storage pool.  To ensure that all NSM5200 units are communicating to each of other in a storage pool, all NSM5200 units must be configured with the same failover IP address that must be an available address in the same subnetwork as the NSM5200 Manager and members.
