You can decide which Archiver is the primary server, which one is the secondary, and which one is the tertiary server for failover.

Before you begin

You must have at least two servers assigned to the Archiver role.

What you should know

To avoid losing video, you should change the server priority for Archiver failover at a time when the Archiver is not archiving.


  1. Click Failover () at the bottom of the Resources tab.

    A dialog box appears, showing the servers assigned to this Archiver role.

  2. Select one of the servers in the list and click or to move it up or down the list.
  3. Click OK to close the Failover dialog box.

    The server tabs switch places.

  4. When a standby server hosts other Archiver roles, you might have to adjust the archiving priorities for the standby server.
  5. Click Apply.
