Disable CMS and disconnect from Panopto

When you use the Admin panel to disable CMS for a registered Pearl-2, the remote recorder disconnects from Panopto. As long as Pearl-2 is still registered, you can create new scheduled sessions in Panopto for this remote recorder, but the events schedule won't synchronize until CMS is re-enabled.

If CMS is re-enabled on Pearl-2 before a VOD session is scheduled to end, recording starts automatically on Pearl-2 when the connection to Panopto is re-established. However, when the start of a scheduled webcasting event is missed, the stream does not automatically start when the connection is re-established. A new webcasting event should be created.

Revoking the registration key and deleting Pearl-2 as a remote recorder is performed in Panopto, see Panopto's documentation for instructions. If you delete Pearl-2 in Panopto, all scheduled and recurring events that were associated with Pearl-2 are permanently deleted.

Content Management Systems (CMSs) can change channel settings automatically. After disabling CMS on Pearl-2, it's good practice to check your channel settings or apply a configuration preset to restore your channel to known values.

Important considerations

  • You cannot start unscheduled ad hoc events when CMS is disabled on Pearl-2.
  • Sessions that are scheduled to start while CMS is disabled on Pearl-2 do not start on Pearl-2.
  • Scheduled webcasting events do not start if Pearl-2's connection to Panopto is not available.

  • Deleting Pearl-2 in Panopto permanently deletes future scheduled and recurring sessions associated with that remote recorder.
  • Do not disable CMS while an event is in progress.
