The D-Link DSN-5110-10, DSN-5210-10 and DSN-5410-10 are all primary arrays, each with a single controller board. For High Availability (HA) operation, an additional controller board can be added to each (DSN-510, DSN-520 and DSN-540 respectively).

In order to attach additional JBOD expansion arrays, there are two SAS SFF-8088 connections found on each controller.

The DSN-5000-10 JBOD expansion array comes with a single I/O board. For High Availability (HA) operation, an additional I/O board can be added (DSN-500).

For each JBOD expansion array, there are two SAS SFF-8470 connections (which use thumbscrews for locking the cable connector in place) found on each I/O board.

In order to attach the first JBOD expansion array to the primary controller, you will need a SAS SFF-8470 to SFF-8088 cable. One of these cables comes with each DSN-5000-10 JBOD expansion array or DSN-500 I/O board purchased.

In order to attach an additional JBOD expansion array to the previous JBOD expansion array, you will need a SAS SFF-8470 to SAS SFF-8470 cable.

When logging into the Network Video Recorder for the first time, you will be asked to choose a drive configuration type and format the drives. There are four options: Standard, JBOD, RAID 0 and RAID 1. Standard configures each disk as a separate volume, while JBOD combines both disks into a single volume.

Standard: Creates two separate volumes (or one volume if only one hard drive is present). Each hard drive has its own volume.

JBOD (linear): Combines both hard drives in a linear fashion which will create one large volume geared towards maximum available space.

RAID0: Combines both hard drives in a striped fashion which will create one large volume geared towards maximum performance.

RAID1: Mirrors the hard drives for redundancy. If one hard drive fails, the other still has all of the data. Replace the failed hard drive and it will re-mirror, restoring maximum data protection.

When formatting of the drive completes, the NVR will prompt the user to restart. A restart countdown screen will appear, and when the restart is complete, the login screen will appear:

Note: After logging in to the NVR for the first time it is recommended to add a password to the admin account.

After login, you will be redirected to the NVR web UI:
