Netbotz Extended Storage System - Tips and Hints

Product Line:

NetBotz

Environment:

NetBotz version 2 external drive NBAS0201

Cause:

Configuration suggestions.

Resolution:

The Extended Storage System is a small external USB attached hard drive. The NetBotz part number for the ESS is NBAS0201. The ESS is only supported on the NetBotz 500. The ESS can typically hold sensor readings and alert information for up to 6 months.

ESS Usage Tips and Hints:
  • Requires external power supply (which is included)
  • The Extended Storage System must attach directly to the WallBotz 500 (do not use hubs, repeaters or extenders).
  • Hot plugging and unplugging of the drive are not supported. The unit should be powered off when the drive is added or removed. If a drive is
    unplugged while in use, a failure alert will be sent and all configuration settings and limits will revert to the standard WB 500 settings.
  • Upon a reboot or restart of the WallBotz 500 with an attached Extended Storage System, unresolved alerts will be “resolved” by marking with a flag
    indicating that the alert was “cancelled by system restart”. Note that if the problem that triggered the alert is still present after the reboot, another
    alert will be generated.
