    What Host Type setting should be used when integrating DSA E2800 with BVMS?




    For DSA E2800 unit to be integrated and work properly with BVMS, the Host Type required is “Factory Default”.

    The NetApp units are set to the 'factory default' setting by default.

    The “Windows” setting is to get some sort of NAS and this will not be accepted by BVMS. Therefore, you must leave the units on 'factory default'. 

    If the Host Type was set to other value than “Factory Default” for DSA E2800 and you want to integrate it with BVMS, the targets will most likely not be scannable and there will be no recordings at all.

    • Note: Optical ports require OM4 optical cable
