These licenses do not come with a hardware dongle.

• M x N structure supported.

• The CMS station will be the main station for the control and monitoring of all the active and redundant servers.

• The Substations failover license needs to be imported to the CMS server.

CMS Failover License

Users can use the redundant server to takeover the CMS, no matter what number of active servers and cameras under this CMS.

Scenario:
CMS server connects with 50 cameras, and the user used 1 redundant-server for CMS. There are 3 active-servers for recording, and the channel of each active-server is 32, 40 and 50. The user uses 2 redundant-servers for backing up their servers.
