If you have BVMS 7.5, certain cameras with a certain FW have been tested and are supported.
If you have BVMS 8.0, certain cameras with a certain FW have been tested and are supported.
For BVMS versions of 9.0 or lower, only tested cameras must be added, otherwise we cannot support new setup.

In this article it is explained how to do the initial system setup and how you can upgrade the BVMS installation to a newer version on a DIVAR IP 3000 or DIVAR IP 7000 video management appliance.
Initial system setup
Second revision DIVAR IP 7000 systems (DIP-71xx-xxx) allow for Appliance BVMS Installer packages to be imported directly during initial system setup.

The Divar AN 3000/5000 features the ability to ping an IP address, thus allowing the technician to verify that the workstation that is to connect to the Divar can be seen on the network.
Please note that this only checks the connection from the DIVAR to the Workstation. Ping operates by sending Internet Control Message Protocol (ICMP) echo request packets to the target host and waiting for an ICMP echo reply. The program reports errors, packet loss, and a statistical summary of the results.
