Answer/Steps

 

DMP-5000/ 8000

  1. Log into the web interface for the DMP.
  2. Ensure that the current release of DMP firmware is installed.
    • If updating from DMP-8000 V6 to V8, you must first install DMP-8000 v7.34.0.33.
      • Prior to installing v8, the media management server will need to be set to Venus.
    • Perform one of the following depending on which DMP interface you have. If neither interface will load, try adding "/new-ui" after the IP address for the DMP.
    • HTML (new) DMP web interface.
      1. Click the Config (wrench) icon.
      2. Click the Time submenu.
      3. Set the NTP Servers from Active to Inactive.
      4. Click the Services submenu.
      5. Enter the address for the local VCS computer.
      6. Select 8811 - Locally hosted from the "Port" drop down.

VIP-5x50/ 5x60

  1. Log into the web interface for the VIP and perform one of the following depending on which VIP interface you have.
    • HTML (new) VIP web interface.
      1. Click the Configuration tab (wrench icon) from the options on the left hand side.
      2. Click the Time submenu.

      5. Under the "Host" heading, enter the address for the local VCS computer.
          • Only one host should be listed, if "venus.daktronics.com" is already there it can be changed to the local server noted below.  If no hosts are listed choose the drop down next to "Add Client" and select Venus-Local.
        • If using a router between the server computer and the display the server name can be used (this will be the name portion of the address you use to log into the user portal).      
          • For example if you use https://computername:44300 to log into the user portal you will only use the "computername" portion here.
        • If the sign is plugged in directly to the server computer use the IP address of the server, see Locally Installed Venus Control Suite does not have the DMP & VIP not showing up to be associated when going to Add Device, DD3271251
