If you are adding a camera on an Archiver where failover or redundant archiving is set up, Security Center might create more media profiles in the camera than needed, and you will not get full performance from the camera.

As a workaround, you must first add the camera on an Archiver without a secondary server already assigned and then configure Archiver failover and redundancy.

This can affect some Pelco and Hanwha units that are integrated with ONVIF.
