If you want a different LPR Manager role to manage and control an LPR or Genetec Patroller™ unit, for load balancing or another purpose, you can move the unit to another LPR Manager using the Move unit tool. After the unit is moved, the old LPR Manager continues to manage the unit data collected before the move.

What you should know

After you move a unit in Config Tool, you need to update the unit’s network settings in Genetec Patroller™ Config Tool and in the Sharp Portal so that the unit can communicate with its new LPR Manager. Specific unit settings (for example, unit name, logical ID, and so on) are automatically carried over to the new LPR Manager.

For example, if you move a Genetec Patroller™ unit from LPR Manager to LPR Manager 2, you must configure the Genetec Patroller™ unit to communicate with LPR Manager 2 the same way you did when you originally added the unit to LPR Manager. This requires changing network settings in Genetec Patroller™ Config Tool so that they match the network settings for LPR Manager 2 in Security Center Config Tool.

Procedure

  1. From the Config Tool home page, click Tools > Move unit.
  2. From the Unit type drop-down list in the Move unit dialog box, select the Genetec Patroller™ or LPR unit you want to move.

    A Genetec Patroller™ unit is shown as an example.

  3. Select the unit you want to move.
  4. From the LPR Manager drop-down list, select the new LPR Manager to control the unit.
  5. Click Move > Close.

    The unit is now added to the new LPR Manager

After you finish

Make sure the unit can communicate with the new LPR Manager, as follows:
  • For hotlists, permit lists, and Genetec Patroller™ user groups, do the following:
    1. From the home page, click System > Roles, and then select the LPR Manager that is now controlling the unit you moved.
    2. Click Properties > File association.
    3. Activate the hotlists and permit lists, and assign a Genetec Patroller™ user group for this LPR Manager.
  • Update the network settings of Genetec Patroller™ units to communicate with the new LPR Manager.
  • Update the network settings of LPR units to communicate with the new LPR Manager.
