Therefore,   performing the steps from this article is absolutely necessary.

    Compared to hardware, in which it is relatively easy to define an end-of-support concept based on the expected lifetime, software behaves totally different. In theory, when the environment does not change, software can still be running ten years after it has been installed. As new versions of the software are released regularly, it is important for customers to know what they can expect from Bosch Building Technologies when the software is purchased. This document describes how Bosch Building Technologies handles the life-cycle of the BVMS, BIS, AMS, and APE, and in which state a specific release can reside. Additionally this document lists the up-to-date situation for all of those software packages.

    Related Products: BVMS, application crash, memory dump This article lists the scenarios in which technical support normally request dump file from a BVMS system. It contains general guidelines how to create a dump file for BVMS system and provides links to more concrete articles, that correspond to particular issues and exact steps to create a dump. BVMS dumps are needed to troubleshoot the following types of issues: Application crashes – dump is expected to provide more information about the cause of the crash and its origin. Memory or handle leaks – dump is expected to point to their origins Deadlocks, freezes and hangs – dump is expected to point to their origins Recommended tool to create BVMS dumps. The recommended tool is Procdump. It is a command line tool which must be started from the command shell. Development provides couple of .bat files that start Procdump with predefined parameters and cover the most common dump creation cases. The tool as well as the set of .bat files are attached to this article: BVMS_DumpTools_V2.zip The batch file names follow a naming guideline: <Executable>_<Dump use case> , where <Executable> is one of: ConfigClient ConfigWizard OperatorClient ManagementServer ArchivePlayer ExceptionTest and <Dump use case> is one of SingleDump TwoDumps DumpOnException DumpOnHang ActivatePostmortemDebugging There are 3 possible error scenarios and corresponding dump creation methods: Dump creation for reproducible crashes that trigger Windows Error Reporting Run the affected application/service (Operator Client, Configuration Client or Management Server Service) Reproduce the steps that lead to the crash Leave the Windows crash dialog open Run the corresponding batch file for creating a single dump: *_SingleDump.bat. E.g. run OperatorClient_SingleDump.bat to create a single dump of the Operator Client process. Provide support with the resulting .dmp file a description of the steps to reproduce the problem ConfigCollection Note: attached you can find a configured example for this scenario and application Operator Client - BVMS_OC_dump_onException.zip Dump creation for reproducible memory or handle leaks Run the affected application/service (Operator Client, Configuration Client or Management Server Service) Run the corresponding batch file for creating two dumps: *_TwoDumps.bat. E.g. run OperatorClient_TwoDumps.bat to create two dumps of the Operator Client process. Note that by default, the delay between the two dumps is set to one hour (3600 seconds). Depending on the magnitude of the memory leak, you might want to increase/decrease the delay. To do that, edit file *_TwoDumps.bat: replace value "3600" by a value that fits your needs e.g. a value of "7200" will create two dumps with a delay of two hours. Reproduce the steps that lead to the memory leak. Wait until the second dump was created. Provide support with the resulting two .dmp files a description of the steps to reproduce the memory leak a ConfigCollection Dump creation for crashes/hangs/freezes that are hard to reproduce Deactivate the restarting option for Operator Client / Configuration Client: To deactivate the restarting option for Operator Client / Configuration Client: edit ..\Bosch\VMS\bin\ConfigClient.exe.config or ..\Bosch\VMS\bin\OperatorClient.exe.config. Navigate to section <appSettings> add a new entry <add key = "DisableExceptionHandling" value="TRUE" />. Run ActivatePostmortemDebugging.bat Run the affected application/service (Operator Client, Configuration Client or Management Server Service) As soon as the issue appears, check whether the dump was created. Provide support with the resulting .dmp file description of the steps to reproduce the crash ConfigCollection Note: attached you can find a configured example for this scenario and application Operator Client - BVMS_OC_dump_Just-In-Time-Debuger.zip

    Question Why I cannot see my camera in the Logical Tree from Operator Client? Answer Please make sure that you have done all the steps below accordingly. Normally, to be able to view a camera in the Operator Client, you need to: Go to the Maps and Structure tab from Configuration Client. Drag and drop the camera in question from the Device Tree to the Logical Tree. Save and Activate the changes. This step is very important because otherwise, you will not be able to see the changes in Operator Client, even though the first 2 steps were carried out in Configuration Client.

If the device is not listed in the List of tested cameras, then please check   here   and make sure that your device is ONVIF Profile S compliant. If your camera is not listed in the tested cameras and is not listed on the ONVIF website as Profile S conformant, we cannot help you when you have an issue with this device. You should approach the device manufacturer to certify the device as ONVIF Profile S conformant. For example, if you have an   Axis camera, M1004 model, please fill in your product details in the Application Type, Profile(s), Manufacturer and the Product Name fields, under the   Product Search   option, and press on the “Search” button: 3. If your device is ONVIF profile S compliant you can contact Bosch Central Technical Support and request assistance.

Solving issues might take longer as it requires collaboration with the camera vendor. Bosch support teams might need to refer to the camera manufacturer’s support line to help fixing the issue. We consider the firmware listed on the ONVIF website as the minimum firmware version of a camera. Please let us know if you run into issues with newer firmware versions so that we can investigate those accordingly. If the problem is a firmware regression, we might need to refer you to the camera manufacturer for support.
