This article will explain how to set-up the RAID quickly in order to start the "re-imaging" process from the Recovery DVD (one at DIVAR IP 6000 R2 - or two DVDs at DIVAR IP 7000 R2) enclose to each DIVAR IP 7000 R2 or DIVAR IP 6000 R2 delivery.
Video Recording Manger v4.00.0070 does not allow anyone not configured in VRM, only as an admin (using Configuration Manager), to log into the VRM Monitor page. BVMS users are no longer able to login and a message is displayed that they require administrative rights. Even new BVMS users created in the default Admin group do NOT have access any longer.
For example, login to VRM Monitor is no longer possible for user type “live”
Live and Replay function was removed from VRM v3.83.0021 for ‘srvadmin’ user. All other BVMS created users are able to login to VRM Monitor and see live and replay video without the ability to restriction this function.
If you have an earlier version of VRM, lower than v4.00.0070 and you would like to restrict the login option to VRM Monitor for other users than admin, you need to upgrade the VRM to the latest version.
Important Note: Downgrade from version 4.00 to an earlier version is not possible.
⚠️ Please be aware that VRM 3.82 or higher is available as 64 bit version only (no 32 bit version available). When upgrading from a VRM 32 bit version to a 64 bit version SSL certificates will be removed and have to be added manually to the system.
Exception: self-signed certificates will be replaced automatically.
o For proper installation certain prerequisites e.g. latest Windows updates are required. For further information please refer to the knowledge base article.

You are using one Divar network 2000 and you have a new Flexidome IP 5000i IR camera, but you cannot add it to the Divar because it is not displayed in “Detection” > “Device search” screen.
Divar network 2000 connected to one monitor
Flexidome IP 5000i IR
You didn’t set up the internal IP settings of the DIVAR.
Assigning the device to a network range which is different than the internal or external network range will lead to a situation where the cameras will no longer be accessible by the recorder.
A warning message is shown and using this feature will not work.
Never lose track of an object of interest! Intelligent Tracking automatically zooms in to and follows a selected Intelligent Video Analytics object as far as possible with the camera.
For AUTODOME / MIC IP 7000, this means automatically steering the camera to zoom in to the object and follow it.
For a FLEXIDOME IP panoramic 7000, Intelligent Tracking is available in the Virtual PTZ video and steers the dewarped cut-out.
For DINION / FLEXIDOME IP 7000 / 8000 cameras, Intelligent Tracking can steer a region of interest (ROI) stream. This article describes how to set Intelligent Tracking up with FW 6.30 and lists the differences based on the camera types.

Until some years ago, new released cameras, encoders, domes and decoders that were introduced into market after a BVMS release could not be connected to an existing BVMS version because these cameras where not known to the BVMS.
In the BVMS 4.5.1, a new concept was introduced.
This concept treats Bosch video encoders and decoders as generic devices, and automatically recognizes specific device functionality (for example the number of streams, relays and inputs).
Based on this information, unknown device is added to the system and can be used by the operator.
The attached document provides a detailed description of this functionality.
The attached manual provides information for Mobile Video Service (MVS) within Bosch Video Management System.

What should you know about SNMP and Bosch cameras SNMP support?
This article explains briefly the basics of SNMP. Declares the basic terms of the protocol. It also explains what part of the protocol is supported by Bosch cameras.
Basics of SNMP and terms.
Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) is a common protocol to monitor the health status of a system. Such a monitoring system typically has a central management server that collect all the data from the system’s compatible components and devices. SNMP provides two methods to gain the system health status:
–The network management server can poll the health status of a device via SNMP requests.
–Devices can actively notify the network management server about their system health status in case of error or alarm conditions through sending SNMP traps to the SNMP server. Such traps must be configured inside the device.
Details how to configure Bosch camera to send SNMP traps - How to activate the SNMP and configure sending SNMP traps from Bosch cameras?
SNMP also allows configuration of some variables inside devices and components. The information, which messages a device supports and which traps it can send, is derived from the Management Information Base, the so-called MIB file, a file that is delivered with a product for easy integration into a network monitoring system. There are three different version of the SNMP protocol:
–SNMP version 1
SNMP version 1 (SNMPv1) is the initial implementation of the SNMP protocol. It is widely used and has become the de facto standard protocol for network management and monitoring. But SNMPv1 has become under threat due to its lack of security features. It only uses ‘community strings’ as a kind of passwords, which are transmitted in clear text.Thus, SNMPv1 shall only be used when it can be assured that the network is physically protected against unauthorized access.
–SNMP version 2
SNMP version 2 (SNMPv2) included improvements in security and confidentiality, amongst others, and introduced a bulk request to retrieve large amounts of data in a single request. However, its security approach was considered way too complex,hindering its acceptance. Thus, it was soon pushed out by version SNMPv2c, which equals SNMPv2 but without its controversial security model, reverting to the community-based method from SNMPv1instead, similarly lacking security.
–SNMP version 3
SNMP version 3 (SNMPv3) mainly adds security and remote configuration enhancements. These include improvements on confidentiality by encryption of packets, message integrity and authentication. It also addresses large-scale deployment of SNMP.
Bosch cameras SNMP
To check what SNMP version does a particular camera support, check the data sheet of the device. (Find it under your device in the product catalogue - https://www.boschsecurity.com/xc/en/product-catalog/)
since FW 6.40 onwards Bosch devices support SNMP v1 legacy and SNMP v3

🛈 Port Forwarding
Allows remote computers (for example, computers on the Internet) to connect to a specific computer or service within a private local-area network (LAN).
In a typical residential network, nodes obtain Internet access through a DSL or cable modem connected to a router or network address translator (NAT/NAPT). Hosts on the private network are connected to an Ethernet switch or communicate via a wireless LAN. The NAT device's external interface is configured with a public IP address. The computers behind the router, on the other hand, are invisible to hosts on the Internet as they each communicate only with a private IP address.
When configuring port forwarding, the network administrator sets aside one port number on the gateway for the exclusive use of communicating with a service in the private network, located on a specific host. External hosts must know this port number and the address of the gateway to communicate with the network-internal service. Often, the port numbers of well-known Internet services, such as port number 80 for web services (HTTP), are used in port forwarding, so that common Internet services may be implemented on hosts within private networks.
The IP camera address is always the key if you would like to monitor or remote viewing it. Like any network device, the camera is assigned an IP address when it is connected to the router with Internet access and powered on.
Here we will introduce 3 ways to find the network camera IP address quickly and easily.
