    Question BVMS Lite is a BVMS edition which can be downloaded and activated free-of-charge. How can I set-up a basic (live and recorded video) BVMS Lite system? Answer First, you need to download the software package, active the BVMS Lite license and install the software. This is described in this article: BVMS - Activating a license. Second, you need to prepare an iSCSI environment which is suitable for recording video. Any Windows Server based operating system will do. This is described in this article: BVMS - Configuring a Microsoft iSCSI target. Last, you need to add cameras to the system and start the recording. This is described in this youtube video: How to add a new camera using Configuration Client (BVMS). Now, have a look at the Operator Client quick guide and you're ready to go! Where can I get more information on advanced functionality? Once the software (configuration client or operator client) is running you can press F1 at any time to open the embedded software help! All of the advanced functionality BVMS offers is explained in the help files.

    Question How can I migrate the full configuration (including server configuration and user settings) of a BVMS system from one server to another? (please note that, currently, the export mechanisms provided in the BVMS Configuration Client do not export the userdata. This is a known problem and being worked on. Until then this work-around should be applied). Answer Stop the BVMS Central Server service on the existing server from the Windows task manager or Services overview. Stop the BVMS Central Server service on the new server from the Windows task manager or Services overview. Copy the contents of the directory C:\programdata\Bosch\VMS\UserData on the existing server to the same directory on the new server (via the network or other media). Copy the "elements.bvms" file located in the directory C:\programdata\Bosch\VMS\ on the existing server to the same location on the new server (via the network or other media). Start the BVMS Central Server service on the new server from the Windows task manager or Services overview.

    The entire BVMS installation package, available on the downloadstore, contains the client as well as the server components. When a BVMS client needs to be deployed, all of this data (over 2.5GB) needs to be copied to the target workstation, which can be quite a challenge in some environments. Once the BVMS Management Server is set-up, it creates a client installation package (mainly used for the auto-upgrade functionality). This client installation package is a lot smaller compared to the full installation package and is located on the BVMS Management Server (assuming the default installation directory is used): C:\Program Files\Bosch\VMS\Update In order to use the client installation package: copy all the files in this directory from the management server to the new workstation and start BVMS.msi (please note Setup.exe will trigger the auto update mechanism, which will not work as there are no existing components to be updated). The MSI will start the installation process and will allow you to select Operator Client, Configuration client and/or SDK. Please note: The correct version of the .NET framework will need to be installed manually before this procedure is used. This can be found in the zip file available in the product catalogue: “zip file extraction location”\ISSetupPrerequisites\Microsoft .NET Framework x.x.

     Bosch software is distributed via the Bosch website, but can also be re-distributed by Bosch partners. It is important for the system-installer to check if the installation file he or she has received, matches exactly with the output of the engineering process. There are several risks that, in the distribution path, changes are made to the installation file. Keyloggers or other spyware could be added to the installation, or in theory video surveillance footage could be routed to external resources. The attached document describes how the integrity of software can be checked.

    The BVMS Operator Cliet can be automatically logged in by using parameterized startup. For this, a new shortcut to the OperatorClient.exe needs to be created, and the target of the shortcut needs to be adjusted. The text between ** needs to be adjusted to the specific situation. "*BVMS installation directory*\bin\OperatorClient.exe" /user="*username*" /password="*password*" /connection="*ip address*" For example: "C:\Program Files\BOSCH\VMS\bin\OperatorClient.exe" /user="Admin" /password="password123" /connection="192.168.20.120" The connection parameter works with BVMS 9.0 and newer. The username and password parameters are working from BVMS 5.0 onwards. The username and password are stored as cleartext in the target of the shortcut, which could be considered a security risk.

    Possible Communication Issue between BVMS 8.0 Central Server and Video Recording Manager (VRM) 3.7x with BVMS 8.0 installed on different Servers. Problem Identification Communication can get interrupted and configuraiton might fail if the below desribed actions are not performed. If your system is affected or not is described here as follows: There can be authentication issues between the BVMS Central Server and the Video Recording Manager in case they are installed on different Servers. It is possible to see reports at the BVMS 8.x system alarms that VRM reports wrong version Please check in the VRM debug logging if the following logline indications can be found CONFIG;DEBUG;SENDING XPATH /SYSTEM/DEVICES/DEVICE as well as HAS NO CONFIGURED NODE, SET TO CONFIGURED CONFIG;INTERNAL;/SYSTEM/DEVICES CHANGED IN CONFIG. DEVICEID= [DEVICE IP]\0;SYSINFO;INTERNAL;LINE 1 HAS NO CONFIGURED NODE, SET TO CONFIGURED Solution In general please keep in mind, that it is strongly recommended to use VRM 3.71.00xx with BVMS 8.0. Do not use any older VRM version like 03.71.0022. The 03.71.0029 and Releaseletter is available at the BOSCH DownloadStore (status update 2018-10-26). https://downloadstore.boschsecurity.com/FILES/Setup_VRM_03.71.0029_win32.zip Release Letter: https://downloadstore.boschsecurity.com/FILES/Bosch_Releaseletter_VRM_3.71.0029.pdf At the VRM system / server, please check and ensure that the following Microsoft software packages are pre-installed: .NET framework 4.6.2 or higher Redistributables for Visual Studio 2015 In case one component is missing, please perform the following steps: Download the missing Microsoft components. Note: When using BVMS 8.0 the VRM is typically a 32-Bit VRM software. Therefore the 32-Bit Microsoft packages are needed. Component that was seen as missing is the >>   “Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2015”            https://www.microsoft.com/en-US/download/details.aspx?id=4814 Please choose the 32-Bit version of that when using with 32-Bit VRM and the >>  .NET framework 4.6.2 or higher (NDP462-KB3151800-x86-x64-AllOS-ENU.exe)       https://www.microsoft.com/en-US/download/details.aspx?id=53344 Stop the VRM (rms.exe) service in Windows services  Install those components with Administrator rights at the VRM server Reboot the server after installation of the Microsoft components Check if the VRM service is running and if needed Re-Start the VRM (rms.exe) service Check that the combination of messages are not longer seen in the VRM debug logging The VRM package is enhanced and useres should no longer run into this issue with VRM 3.81 and newer versions. Please be aware that BVMS releases are tested with certain VRM verions. This still can offer to install a newer VRM than originally rolled-out in the BVMS overall installer. For all VRM versions 3.7x and below 3.81 it is needed to add this packages.

    BVMS Installer - Windows Pending Restart Message Issue:  The pop-up dialog window message: "Setup has detected a pending restart.  Please reboot the system and rerun the installation"  appears when attempting to run the valid BVMS windows installer package. BVMS Installer Pending Restart Message   Cause:  This is a known Windows specific problem when another (non-BVMS) installer does not properly manage its creation and deletion of the “PendingFileRenameOperations” registry key. The most common user created way for this key value to be left resident in the system is when an installation prompts for a restart, yet the system is not expeditiously restarted.     Resolution:  A. Restart the affected workstation B. If the issue still persists, delete the orphaned "PendingFileRenameOperations" registry key value Open a registry editor, such as Regedit.exe or Regedt32.exe.   Navigate to "HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\" In the right navigation pane, right-click the "PendingFileRenameOperations" key value and select delete Close Registry Editor. Run the software Installer again as Administrator   Note:  This message is not a Bosch product failure message. This is a problem within windows and it's registry clean-up handling.  This is a Windows work around.

    As video surveillance use grows in commercial, government and private use cases, the need for low-cost storage at scale is growing rapidly. BVMS, Bosch cameras, HPE hardware and SUSE Enterprise Storage provide a platform that is an ideal target for recording these streams. There are numerous difficulties around storing unstructured video surveillance data at massive scale. Video surveillance data tends to be written only once or become stagnant over time. This stale data takes up valuable space on expensive block and file storage, and yet needs to be available in seconds. With this massive scale, the difficulty of keeping all the data safe and available is also growing. Many existing storage solutions are a challenge to manage and control at such scale. Management silos and user interface limitations make it harder to deploy new storage into business infrastructure. The solution is software-defined storage (SDS). This is a storage system that delivers a full suite of persistent storage services via an autonomous software stack that can run on an industry standard, commodity hardware platform. Bosch, Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) and SUSE have partnered to deliver the benefits of SDS to the video surveillance industry. Using SUSE Enterprise Storage™ on HPE ProLiant DL and Apollo servers in a Bosch video surveillance environment simplifies the management of today’s volume of data, and provides the flexibility to scale for all enterprise storage needs. The full description can be found in the attached whitepaper.

    Question How can I find the source (details of the workstation) and credentials that are used to attempt to login into BVMS (when the attempt has failed)? Answer The username that is used to login is saved into the BVMS logbook and can be found by searching the logbook from the Operator Client (username of login is "blabla").   The details of the workstation (mainly the IP address) is logged into the BVMS client log files. These can be found on the workstations in the directory: C:\ProgramData\Bosch\VMS\Log (Hint: for log file analysis a lot of free / open source tools are available. Snaketail is one of these tools, and can be found here.) Open the BVMSClientLog.txt (there could be multiple files which are all related to a different timeframe) and search for the phrase "InvalidCredentialException". If an user has tried to login to the system the following log lines should be present in the log file: 2019-03-17 18:31:53,668 75516 [GUI Thread] INFO Bosch.Vms.Frontend.OpClient.Wcf.DataAccessServiceClient ConnectAndAuthenticate - Call failed with InvalidCredentialException 2019-03-17 18:31:53,670 75518 [GUI Thread] INFO Bosch.Vms.Frontend.OpClient.ServerManagement.CentralServerManager AuthenticateAtMainServer - Main-Server 192.168.20.190: WCF online authentication result is WrongUserOrPassword This needs to be checked for every workstation which runs the BVMS Operator Client.
