    2 Known issues

    2.1 Installation Issue: Upgrade of DCN multimedia software fails. Upgrade of DCN multimedia software can fail if the DCN SD service cannot be stopped in time by the installation process. Solution: Stop the DCN multimedia server manually using the Server console. Issue: Installation of the software fails if the installation is started via Firefox or Chrome and the webpage (index.htm). Solution: Firefox and Chrome first download the DCNmSetup.exe and then start the installation. Unfortunately this causes the links to the other files to be lost resulting in failure of the installation. Please run the DCNmSetup.exe from the Installer-directory.

    2.2 Upgrade of DCN multimedia devices Issue: DCN multimedia device shows black screen with DCN multimedia logo after upgrade. When DCN multimedia, which are new from factory, are upgraded while the DCN multimedia services are running it might occur that after the upgrade, the devices will show the black screen with DCN multimedia logo instead of the discuss-screen. Solution: Restart the DCN multimedia server manually using the Server console. This behavior will not occur if the upgrade process is started via the Server console tool

    2.3 Operation Issue: Additional video stream, configured via VideoStreamDeviceConfiguration.xml, does not work anymore. Solution: Downgrade to DCN multimedia 1.5.

    access it to place meeting related documents in it and/or create directories for meetings) • The Technician should create a shortcut to this meetingdocuments directory on the

    secretary’s computer so he/she can easily access this directory. • The secretary has to create the links in the meeting and agenda items with the following

    format: http://:31415/Default.aspx

    • If each meeting has its own directory with documents than the links should have the following format: http://:31415/Default.aspx?meeting=

    • If each agenda has its own directory with documents than the links should have the following format: http://:31415/Default.aspx?meeting=&agenda=
