[KBA-00360] How to copy local layouts from one Live Viewer machine to another

This article explains how to copy local layouts from one Live Viewer station to another in Omnicast™.

Summary

When enabling the Video Wall Option in Live Viewer, layouts are stored locally instead of in the database. Therefore, layouts are not accessible from all Live Viewer stations.

More Information

To copy the local layouts from one Live Viewer machine to another in Omnicast™:
  1. On the source machine where the layouts were created, open Windows explorer and navigate to C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\DVR Software 4.x.
    NOTE: 4.x means the Omnicast™ version.
  2. Copy the LocalLayouts.xml file.
  3. On the destination machine that the local layouts will be copied to, do the following:
    1. Log in to Live Viewer.
    2. Click Tools > Options > Display and enable the Video Wall Option.
    3. Log off and close Live Viewer.
    4. Replace the LocalLayouts.xml file from the source machine.

      The next time you log in to Live Viewer, the local layouts from the source machine are now available.
