Configure the Upstream Media Server

This section describes how to configure Media Server to send records to another Media Server for further processing.

To send records to another Media Server

  1. Create a new configuration to send to Media Server with the process action, or open an existing configuration that you want to modify.

  2. In the [Output] section, add a new output task by setting the OutputEngineN parameter. You can give the task any name, for example:

  3. Below the [Output] section, create a new configuration section by typing the task name inside square brackets. For example:

  4. In the new section, set the following parameters:

    Type The output engine to use. Set this parameter to Post.

    A comma-separated list of the tracks that you want to send to the downstream Media Server.

    You can provide aliases to simplify the track names when you configure the downstream Media Server. To do this specify the track names as Alias:TaskName.TrackName, where:

    • Alias is the track name to present to the downstream HPE Media Server.
    • TaskName is the name of the task that produced the track.
    • TrackName is the name of the track.
    Host The host name or IP address of the Media Server to send records to.
    Port The ACI port of the Media Server to send records to.
    ConfigName The name of the configuration file that the downstream Media Server must use to continue processing the records (this file must be present in the folder specified by the ConfigDirectory configuration parameter on the downstream Media Server).

    For example:

    // or using alias "DetectedFaces" for "FaceDetect.ResultWithSource":
    // Input=DetectedFaces:FaceDetect.ResultWithSource
  5. Save and close the configuration file. HPE recommends that you save your configuration files in the location specified by the ConfigDirectory parameter.
