An authorized Operator of LockView® can create a database of users and locks on a
local or networked computer. Each user in this computer's database is assigned to a slot
in each lock to which they have access. A lock's internal memory is divided into 3000
slots that store user information thereby giving each lock a maximum of 3000 users.
The computer with LockView® loaded onto it has the ability to connect to locks (directly,
through a USB cable or through a computer network, using Ethernet or 802.11g Wi-Fi)
and update the lock's memory to correspond with its own database. It is able to gather
and manipulate a lock's audit trail, or past operation log. Audit trail information contains
the lock’s name, the name of the user attempting to gain access, the credential used, if
access was granted or denied, and the date and time of each interaction.
LockView 4 works with LockServ to communicate with locks. LockServ has the ability to
communicate with multiple locks simultaneously over a computer network, eliminating
the need for the Operator to visit each lock to update the lock’s database, or download
audit trails.
Alternately, LockServ can communicate with locks using a USB cable if network hardware
is not available.

If SQL is used, refer to the following ‘Common Install for Networked Installations’ list.
Common Install for Networked Installations:
- Server/PC with SQL Server and setup to be the LockView Server and a laptop with LockView Client Installed.
- Backup of SQL Server is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
Note:
- Network module of lock must be programmed to point to the IP address of the computer with LockView Server (LockServ)
installed.
- LockView Server (LockServ) computer must have a static IP address.
- All LockView Clients must also be able to connect to the LockView SQL DB through ODBC.
- Network Modules need to be setup/changed with the USB cable. This is the main reason a laptop with LockView Client is
required. See pages 34-39 for setup.
- There should only be one computer set up to be the LockView Server.
- There should only be one LockView SQL Database.
- LockView Clients and Server must have Local Administrator Rights on the computer on which they are setup.
How the Network Modules work with SQL and LockView.
- The Network Modules must be setup to communicate with the Server through its IP Address. This can be set in LockView with
the USB cable in the LockView Settings menu.
- The Server IP Address programmed in the network modules is the computer that is set up to be the LockView server.
- LockView Server installs a service that runs automatically called LockServ
- LockView Clients install the same LockServ. LockServ runs only when the LockView program is running.
- LockServ must be running on the LockView Server for the Network Modules to update to the Database.
- LockView must have a valid ODBC setup to the SQL database to connect.

reconnect the cable and hit ‘OK.’
If there is a failure at any time, click “Analyze Failure” for possible solutions
to the problem.
5. If a test fails, select ‘Analyze Failure.’
Below is a list of possible problems and what to check:
Update Issue
What went wrong: The database did not update when the lock called in.
What to check: Ensure the databases selected here and on the server are
the same.
Missing Records
What went wrong: The database does not contain data for this lock.
What to check: Ensure the databases selected here and on the server are
the same.
Communication Glitch
What went wrong: Data was lost or corrupted during communication with
the lock/module.
What to check: This is not a network issue, but an internal dataflow error;
ensure cabling is intact and try retesting.
Socket Issue
What went wrong: The wireless module could not open a TCP socket to the
server.
What to check: First, retest; failing that, ensure the server is configured to
accept incoming connections on the designated port.
PING Issue
What went wrong: The server did not respond to a PING from the module.
What to check: First, retest; failing that, ensure the module was programmed
with the correct server IP.
Server Undefined
What went wrong: The server IP and Port parameters are not known.
What to check: Verify this module has been programmed. If so, the
programming may have failed to take. Return to Configuration screen, ‘Save
Settings to Module’ again, and ensure the save reports success.
DHCP Issue
What went wrong: The module did not get an IP dynamically assigned.
What to check: First, retest; failing that, re-evaluate the module settings;
it was not able to gain network access.

Once locks are setup properly they ‘check-in’ to
the lock server through the Activity Monitor.
Click ‘LockServer Activity Monitor’
The LockServer Activity screen will pop-up.
