This page provides a guide to configuring a Verba Media Repository as a Storage Target in the system. You can use this type of storage target in upload policies when recording servers upload the recorded media files to a Media Repository server. For file transfer, the system uses its own property secure file transfer protocol.
This storage target cannot be used in the case there are multiple Media Repositories deployed in the system because only the local applications can access the media files on the Media Repository server (e.g. playback will not work from other Media Repository servers). alternatively, a network share can be created on one of the Media Repository servers and added as a network storage target.
For a general description of storage targets, please refer to Storage and export targets.
Follow the steps below to create a new Storage target for a Verba Media Repository:
Step 1 - Open the Verba Web interface then select Data Management > Storage targets from the top menu.
Step 2 - Click on Add New Storage Target
Step 3 - Fill in the configuration form according to the requirements in the following table.
|Name||Name your storage target. This name will identify this target across the system.|
|Type||Select Verba Media Repository Local Disk|
|Path||Specify the path where the storage is accessible in the Windows file system (UNC path)|
|Host Name or IP Address||Name or address of the Verba Media Repository|
|Port||Port used to access the Verba Media Repository (default: 20111)|
Step 4 - Click Save to save the settings
After this point, the storage target is available for use by other Verba components (e.g. Data management policies).
