    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. Download:   Software (Video Recording Manger 4.00.0070 (64-bit)) Please check the System Requirements section from   Release Letter Video Recording Manager v.4.00.0070 (64-bit)

    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.

    This article provides a step-by-step guide about how you can disable UPnP of Bosch IP cameras & multicast scan from Configuration Manager. 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.

      Question   Which .NET Framework version is required for Configuration Manager v7.30?   Answer   .NET Framework is the original implementation of .NET. It supports running websites, services, desktop apps, and more on Windows. The system requirements for Configuration Manager state .NET 4.7.2 as necessary to be installed. .NET 4.7.2 is considered an operating system component under responsibility of Microsoft. If you operate in an offline CCTV network environment, please make sure that you have the .NET Framework 4.7.2 downloaded with the Configuration Manager v7.30 installer. Otherwise, the message below might appear and if you don’t have internet access you will be not able to use CM v7.30 WARNING: Configuration Manager v7.30 installation package does not provide .NET Framework 4.7.2.

    ⚠️  CAUTION! If a computer on which VRM Server is starte d is simultaneously accessed by multiple  Configuration Manager programs, this can result  in an inconsistent VR M configuration. Ensure  that different people do not make chang es to the configuration at the same time.   Step-by-step guide Open one browser and type in the IP address of the VRM server you are pulling the log from. This will take you to the VRM Monitor web page. Log in with the VRM credentials (default user name is srvadmin); by default, there is no password   3.82 version: Go to Monitoring > System > Logbook The Export  Log bock page allows you to export all or only selected system  log s as a .zip file.

    This guide is meant to help you adding new cameras in VRM in Configuration Client and display their images in Operator Client. Before adding a new camera there are a few things that need to be taken into consideration: You are not exceeding the maximum number of channels allowed. Each unit has a maximum number of channels. For example: DIP 5000 AIO the maximum number of channels is 42 DIP 6000/ 7000 AIO the maximum number of channels is 128 You have the neccesarry number of licenses installed on the system The units come with 8 channels pre-licensed. If you want to add more cameras or encoders/ decoders, you need first to make sure that licenses have been purchased. The system has enough storage to cover the retention time of the cameras. If there is no storage available,   there is a risk that your system will stop recording. The bandwidth available of the unit is not exceeded. For example: Bandwidth   DIP 5000 AIO: 170   Mbit/s Bandwidth   6000/ 7000 AIO: 550   Mbit/s Article requirements: Operator Client Configuration Client Camera PC/ Server/ Workstation

    The firewall configuration dialog is a fixed step in the setup process and will allow automatic configuration of all required firewall settings to run BVMS. The applied rules and settings can be found in the readable command script file "C:\Program Files\Bosch\VMS\bin\FirewallConfig.cmd". The firewall rules that have been applied with the setup cannot be reverted and must be manually changed/removed if required.

    This article describes how to configure a generic Microsoft Windows Server (2012 R2, 2016 or 2019) based server to serve as an iSCSI target for a Bosch video surveillance environment. SCSI (Small Computer System Interface) is most commonly used for the communication between computers and peripheral devices, such as hard drives. iSCSI enables devices to use SCSI over a network interface, therefore it makes a lot of sense for cameras to use iSCSI to record video. The camera is a small computer that needs a (network) connection to a "hard drive" to store video footage. In other systems this job is performed by the network video recorder (NVR).

    In many cases a minimum and maximum retention time needs to be defined in a video surveillance systems due to legal requirements. While the minimum retention time defines the time period for how long video recordings need to be stored, the maximum retention time defines after which period of time the recordings have to be deleted. Thus, the minimum retention time is going to influence the amount of storage needed. The higher the minimum retention time the more storage space is required.

    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.
