How do you validate a new Hard Drive is being “used” by the recorder?

There are two methods to ensure a recorder has mounted and will be “using” the hard drives for recording purposes:

  1. Using Admin Console, connect to the NVR in question and within Task Type Device Installation, click the STORAGE tab. Look under the column STATE. If you see the word ON-LINE for each drive installed, the drive(s) is being used.
  2. Using Putty (SSH software), connect to the provisioning interface of the NVR in question. Login and type: showdisk. For each drive installed within the NVR, you must see the words DISK IN USE.
