NVR Spare Hard Drive Replacement

Quick Start Guide

This document describes the spare hard drive replacement process for Avigilon network video recorders (NVRs). To replace the hard drive:

  1. Determine which hard drive is affected.
  2. In the Server Administrator software, turn the hard drive offline.
  3. Replace the hard drive. There are two different replacement methods depending on the hard drive location. Follow the appropriate instructions.

If your recorder is still under warranty, contact Avigilon Technical Support to replace the failed hard drive.

Important: Only replace a hard drive if the hard drive LED indicator and the Server Administrator displays an error.
