The 4.0.7 firmware supports updated features that can be implemented using the 4RE configuration xml file or the domaintoConfigv1.xsl file for Evidence Library.
This article will describe the new 4RE feature, the corresponding xml nodes (i.e.
<Language>0</Language>), the acceptable values, and where to place them in the configuration file.
The 4RE configuration xml file can be found in a deployed configuration. Manually deploy a configuration to a USB flash drive.
The domaintoConfigv1.xsl file is located in
“Program Files\WatchGuard Video\Hosted
and you will need to open Notepad as an administrator to modify it.
Always make a backup of the configuration file before modifying!
NOTE THAT THE 4RE MUST HAVE A CUSTOM SELF-ENCRYPTING DRIVE FOR THIS FEATURE TO WORK
For more information about 4RE systems with self-encrypting drives, please consult your WatchGuard Regional Sales Manager
The 4RE now supports self-encrypting drives. For example, an agency might be required to have all data stored on a removeable storage media or internal storage media to be encrypted to meet compliance requirements. This feature is supported by adding the following values in the configuration xml within the
Enable accepts true/false and is
false on the 4RE side by default. Security is enabled or disabled immediately upon application of a configuration, no reboot required.
Downgrading the 4RE firmware to a version which doesn't support security will disable it automatically, but forward upgrades will persist it.
