Displays two possible states:

  • OK
  • Out of spec

States indicate both Current status and Worst status seen conditions.

  • OK – component is functioning properly
  • Out of spec – Check with your support provider; component might require service

If the Worst status seen column displays Out of spec, but Current status is OK, monitor the status regularly to verify that it was only a temporary condition.

Temperature

Displays three possible states:

  • OK
  • Out of spec
  • Critical

States indicate both Current status and Worst status seen conditions.

  • OK – temperature of the IP VCR is within the appropriate range
  • Out of spec – Check the ambient temperature (should be less than 34 degrees Celsius) and verify that the air vents are not blocked
  • Critical – temperature of IP VCR is too high. An error also appears in the event log indicating that the system will shutdown in 60 seconds if the condition persists

If the Worst status seen column displays Out of spec, but Current status is OK, monitor the status regularly to verify that it was only a temporary condition.
