    Possible causes and solution(s) Causes   DIVAR IP all-in-one 5000 (DIP-5244IG-4HD) without the video card: When accessing the Operator Client from the Kiosk mode, the camera streams displayed on the cameos show a view that does not match the view from Operator Client running from desktop (Under the BVRAdmin account) or Remote Desktop. The scaling seems to be off. Note: The   DIVAR IP all-in-one 5000   (DIP-5244IG-4HD) is the model without the added video card. The production units of the DIP 5k AiO can run Operator Client locally on the DIP5k AIO without the higher end graphics card and display at least 4 1080p cameras @ 15fps as long as the I-frame distance was well over 30. The units   without a graphic   card   (like   DIP-5244IG-4HD) should not run the Operator Client locally; only remote viewing, with the Operator Client running on a Workstation or suitable PC, is recommended. Doing it any other way may produce inconsistent results, see attached pictures. ✓   You can run the Configuration Client from the Kiosk. ✓   If you logon to the desktop with the BVRAdmin account, you can run the Operator Client from the console (desktop) on the unit. On this unit this is only supported for diagnostics/ testing purposes. This falls under the same category as the Remote Access to the unit.                 ✓   The Central GUI should be used for "configuration and operation management." It does not mention watching videos from the same GUI.                   ✓   You can attach a single monitor to the AiO, in order to run the Configuration Client from the Kiosk (Management purposes).   ⚠️   When using a remote workstation/ computer, to run the BVMS Operator Client remotely, the workstation / computer should  meet the hardware and OS (Operating System) requirements  for such use.  ◦ The hardware and OS (Operating System) requirements can be found in the datasheet of each version of BVMS Operator Client you use. Select the product family from the official Bosch Security and Safety Systems   page, go to Downloads area and download the data sheet. ◦ Bosch strongly urges customers to use the driver versions mentioned in the following   BVMS Release notes. This ensures that the software can perform its task reliably and the specified performance. On the units   with Graphics Cards   you can run both: Operator Client and Configuration Client from the Kiosk and get consistent results, without any changes. ◦ Please also refer to the following   Datasheet  for the Models with and without Graphic Cards.   Solution   The attached .zip file contains a script to check for the credentials to run the script and set the proper scaling on the desktop, for the current user (even for the limited user).

    Question   Why the Windows license key and System ID are the same on all my DIVAR IP 6000?   Answer   These units come pre-licensed from the factory and they have an OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) license activated. Please see more information about OEM on the Wikipedia link below:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Original_equipment_manufacturer According to its   datasheet, all components relevant to the usage of DIVAR IP 6000 as storage array in a Bosch recording solution are pre-installed and preconfigured. Simply connect to the network and power the unit up — DIVAR IP 6000 is ready to begin recording straight out-of-the-box.

    The disks in an array are usually configured into smaller sets named RAID groups which provide protection against failure. The RAID groups define the manner in which the group of physical disks handle data when it is written to the disks within that group. The main aim is that data to be protected. For this reason, you must create logical unit numbers (LUNs) correctly. This article describes all the steps that will help you to create LUNs after RAID failure.

    Question   What is the difference between RAID 5, RAID 5 plus a Hot Spare and RAID 6?   Answer   The RAID combines two or more physical drives into a logical unit presented as a single hard drive to the operating system. There are currently six basic RAID levels: RAID 0, RAID 1, RAID 0+1, RAID 1+0, RAID 3, RAID 4, RAID 5 and RAID 6. The scope of this article is to provide basic information for the levels RAID 5 and RAID 6 and to compare them from point of view of performance and security.   Hot spare   is a drive that acts as a stand by drive in RAID 1, RAID 5 or RAID 6 volume. It is fully functional drive that contains no data and is not used during normal operation. If a drive from the volume fails, the controller reconstructs the data from the failed drive to the hot spare drive. A   RAID 5   array is designed to protect against the failure of a single disk within the array. Because of the way that RAID 5 works, the total capacity of one disk is lost to overhead. If, for example, a RAID 5 array contained five 10TB disks, then the array’s usable capacity would be 40TB. A   RAID 5 (with Hot Spare disk)   array can be configured to treat one of the disks as a hot spare. Then one of the disks is reserved as a replacement in the event that a disk fails. For the above example with five 10TB disks, this would decrease the example array’s usable capacity to 30TB. A   RAID 6   array is designed to protect against two simultaneous disk failures. However, the price for this extra protection is that two disks' worth of capacity is lost to overhead. As such, a RAID 6 array made up of five 10TB disks would have a usable capacity of 30TB because 20 TB is lost to overhead. The   performance   during Normal Operation is measured in IOPS (Input/output operations per second) and as a sum for all the disks (excluding the Hot Spares and decreased for writing parity data) in the array.  As a rule of the thumb, the higher the overhead associated with writing parity data (in the above example RAID 5 with Hot Spare causes the same overhead like RAID 6) the lower the IOPS. The reason for implementing RAID arrays is to   secure the data. The level of   protection   does not directly correlate with the overhead. From the above example both RAID 5 with Hot Spare and RAID 6 have same capacity, but offer different level of protection. In case of failure of RAID 5 array with Hot Spare, the Hot Spare is activated and the rebuild process start immediately. The system can recover from a single disk failure and during the recovery, process is vulnerable to second disk failure. Therefore, RAID 5 and RAID 5 with Hot Spare disk offer the same level of protection – single disk failure.   In contrast, if a disk fails at RAID 6 array, the recovery will start only after the faulty disk is replaced manually.  However, if during the recovery process second disk fails, the RAID 6 array will stay functional.

    The Windows Storage Server operating system of DIVAR IP all - in - one 7 000  is  installed on a two SSD drives in redundant (mirrored) configuration. Health status of  the mirrored OS drives can be monitored using a tool called Virtual RAID on CPU  (formerly known as Rapid Storage Technology). Installation and configuration steps  are described below. Step-by-step guide   1. Installation: Download  the setup  from  here Copy the content to a USB drive When the BVMS default screen is shown, press CTRL + ALT + DEL Hold down the SHIFT key while clicking Log off Log in as BVRAdmin Transfer the IATA_CD.exe from the USB drive to the BVRAdmin desktop Double click  the  IATA_CD.exe executable Follow the installation procedure  as shown in the screen shots     2. Email notification: Note: The E-mail notification feature is based on SMTP access without authentication. It is strongly suggested to use this functionality only with a dedicated server in the local network, which is specifically configured for this purpose and doesn’t handle any critical data.

    Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI)   is a security guard for your server. Some primary functions of IMPI are to monitor hardware status (including temperatures, power consumption, voltage, etc.), log server data, and allow access to the server even when an operating system is not installed or is malfunctioning. IPMI gives you the ability to manage servers in remote physical locations regardless of the installed operating system. This procedure is applicable for DIVAR IP 6000/7000.   Follow the steps from this article and find out how you can remotely view and collect the system's event log through IPMI (Intelligent Platform Management Interface).

    MegaRAID Storage Manager software automatically rebuilds the RAID 5 on a DIVAR IP unit without data loss. The rebuild is a fully automatic process, so it is not necessary to issue a Rebuild command. You can also monitor the progress of drive rebuilds. Once the chassis was replaced and the drives were mounted in   drive carriers, follow this step-by-step guide in order to rebuild RAID 5 on a DIVAR IP.
