    A transfer of the license from the Bosch Software License Manager System (SLMS) to the Bosch Remote Portal is required for every BVMS system to be upgraded from 10.1 to 11.0 Starting with BVMS 11.0 the license activation will be done via the Bosch Remote Portal. To upgrade an existing system, the BVMS licenses need to be migrated from the old licensing system, Bosch Software License Manager System (SLMS), to the new licensing system available in Bosch Remote Portal. This article describes the steps that need to be followed when upgrading a system to BVMS 11.0. Prerequisites for upgrading a system to BVMS 11.0: Existing license activated in SLMS Valid Software Assurance (SMA) PRO Valid account on Bosch Remote Portal   ❗ ❗ ❗  IMPORTANT In BVMS 10.x the computer signature is the link to the license in the SLMS When upgrading to 11.x the computer signature becomes obsolete and the new Remote Portal tool no longer takes it into consideration The software Order ID is transferred in the background from SLMS to the Remote Portal This allows the activation of BVMS 11.x in the Remote Portal using the new identifiers for the Management Server Hardware called System Fingerprint, contained in the System Info file.

    In terms of license activation process and compared to other versions of BVMS (<v11.0), the Bosch Remote Portal replaces the Bosch Software License Manager System (SLMS), starting with BVMS v11.0. A new user registration is required in Bosch Remote Portal and the mandatory information for license activation is the System Info file (generated in the Configuration Client) and the Software order ID (received from the Bosch order desk by e-mail → ordering remains unchanged: still utilizes the Bosch Order Desk) The remote portal will then provide a   "Activation file" which includes all activation details. It needs to be uploaded to the newly installed BVMS system. The activation process defines the start date of the software maintenance agreement (SMA - software assurance) period. The end date is shown on the License manager of the BVMS Configuration Client after activation NEW:  Software version-less ordering process: Ordering a BVMS Base or Expansion licenses is not software dependent anymore starting with BVMS 11.0 upwards. During license activation only "non End of Life" (EOL) versions are assigned to the license.   Follow this article and find out the steps that need to be performed when activating a new BVMS 11.0 license.

    In order to quickly offer a technical solution or to provide a professional advice for the next analysis steps, the technical support specialists need to get some general and basic information. Ticket content should always be in English and provided in a well summarized and structured way in order to be able to provide a quick and appropriate feedback. Not following the guideline will impact the processing time of the ticket.   Related Products: BVMS SDK, BVMS    Overview: Analyzing BVMS systems with SDK components is a challenging task, because the functionality and the runtime behavior of those systems are harder to determine than for a BVMS systems without SDK functionality. In order to troubleshoot BVMS systems with SDK components support needs the following information and logging. Please prove the following information to support:   Symptom specific Information   Problem Description SMA validity How to retrieve the Hardware ID for BVMS and check the Software Maintenance Agreement (SMA) status? BVMS stand alone or appliance Detailed description of the expected behavior of the SDK functionality. Detailed description of the actual behavior of the SDK functionality.   SDK Components What type is the standalone SDK application (based on ClientSDK, ServerSDK, or CameoSDK) and on which machine is it running? Are there additionally client scripts, server scripts or workstation startup scripts?   SDK Interactions Do SDK components interact with remote Operator Clients? Do SDK components interact with the Operator Client UI? Do SDK components control devices? How often are client scripts triggered? How often are scripts triggered by BVMS event?   Environment Which shared resources are accessed by SDK actions? (Dome cameras, AMG, Operator Client UI) Do SDK components interact with an unreliable environment? (Unstable network, offline devices, offline PCs, etc.) Do SDK components properly handle offline situations? (offline devices, configuration changes, etc.)    Logging Information Please provide the Scriplet and/or Log files The optimal approach is to provide both the scriplet and logging. ClientScript logfiles: can be found in the ConfigCollection of Operator Client machines. ServerScript logfiles: can be found in the ConfigColletion of Management Server machines.   Make sure that logging is implemented in the script and that logging is activated in the configuration.

    One of the reason why UPnP (Universal Plug and Play) is enabled in our devices is because ONVIF uses this to scan the ONVIF device in the network. If you don’t need to scan ONVIF devices in the network using ONVIF method, you can switch of the SSDP Discovery Service. SSDP protocol can discover Plug & Play devices, with uPnP (Universal Plug and Play). SSDP uses unicast and multicast address (239.255.255.250). SSDP is HTTP like protocol and work with NOTIFY and M-SEARCH methods. "225.86.67.83 " is Bosch Multicast discovery address. When you block this address you cannot scan devices via multicast

    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.

    Question   Which is the VSG preparation to support ONVIF Profile T in BVMS 10.0?   Answer   Additionally to ONVIF profile S, BVMS 10.0 supports ONVIF profile T. Profile S concentrates on basic video streaming and configuration Profile T focuses on advanced video streaming like use of H.264, H265 encoding formats, HTTPS streaming and event definition is more precise there Profile T functionality is only supported for devices that are added over VSG For conditional and optional features please refer to the BVMS - ONVIF Device compatibility article. Functionalities available for all devices added over VSG (BVMS 10.0): The ONVIF relays are scanned automatically Relays can be added to the Logical Tree by drag& drop and triggered from there Thee relay status is automatically updated and signaled with an appropriate icon in Operator Client Status and triggering is possible over BVMS scripts Once ONVIF camera is added to VSG, its capabilities are automatically scanned In the “Add ONVIF encoder” dialog it was added a new device properties entry that shows weather AUX is supported by device. The AUX commands are sent to camera vis VSG and can be triggered for an ONVIF device on alarm. Note: most of the ONVIF cameras do not support all in Configuration Client available events   ONVIF vendor mapping:   ONVIF camera connection to VSG and BVMS Operator Client: Live video from ONVIF camera to VSG or Operator Client can be secured with a Secure connection check box in the Add/ Edit ONVIF Encoder dialog. The secure connection is not chosen by default. (Default HTTPS port is 443) If the live video does not have to be secured, it is possible to choose what protocol should be used: TCP, UDP, Multicast, UDP Unicast. Note: The protocol automatically is switched to TCP if Secure connection is chosen:   Ports used between ONVIF camera and VSG: RTP/RTSP/TCP (secured 😞 443 HTTPS: 443/ customizable (requires TCP)   RTP/RTSP/TCP (unsecured 😞 80 HTTPS: 80/ customizable (requires TCP)   Unicast/ Multicast UDP: has to be configured in a camera first control connection via http port (default port 80 or customizable/ RTSP port: 554)   Nice to know: For a better understanding of the  BVMS 10.0 - ONVIF camera integration with VSG , we   encourage  you to join our online Trainings from  Bosch Building Technologies Academy!
