Add Intercom

The 2N® NetStar Records Manager server adds intercoms automatically based on the replies to the sent broadcast message. Thus, make sure that the intercoms are located in one and the same broadcast domain or that the broadcast message is resent by network elements.

  • Telephone number - enter the 2N® Helios phone number.
  • Recording - activate / deactivate recording.

Caution

  • Make sure that the phone number matches the number under which the intercom is registered with 2N® NetStar to avoid video recording error.

  • Intercom - enter the 2N® Helios name.
  • IP - enter the 2N® Helios IP address.

Users

The Users tab provides a list of all users from all the 2N® NetStars added. The users are read automatically when the 2N® NetStar  licence is added and can be updated manually by clicking the Update icon. Each user is automatically assigned the lowest role (Agent) at the beginning. Superadmin or Admin can change the user roles. The Admin, Manager and Agent roles have the following rights:

  • Admin - has access to all records within the 2N® NetStar it is assigned to and may set user roles.
  • Manager - has access to its records and records of the users assigned to its group.
  • Agent - views its records only. 

Note

  • User login data and passwords are obtained from 2N® NetStar. Change the data and password via the Users – User rights menu in the NsAdmin configuration tool. A subsequent password change via the 2N® NetStar Records Manager web interface changes the password in 2N® NetStar too.

Storage Mapping in 2N® NetStar

Storage mapping in 2N® NetStar via the NsAdmin configuration tool is the next step. Add a physical storage in the Global data – Storage Manager menu displayed using the right mouse click (Add).
