How Does Your VMS Handle Camera Replacements?

We had an issue come up recently with a client where we had to replace a camera due to damage. My question is, when you replace a damaged camera, how does your VMS handle this substitution?

We sold our client DW Spectrum and the way it handles camera replacements is the source of our issue. When replacing the damaged camera, we cannot associate the new camera with the existing video...
