    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.

    This article describes how to set LUNs on a target to Read Only via Configuration Manager. If you want to move a Storage from one VRM to another, this procedure is needed in Order to retain your video footage until the desired Retention Time is over. All you need is the Configuration Manager on a PC in the same Network as the VRM. If you don’t have the Configuration Manager, you can download it here.     Please be aware that setting the LUNs to Read only will decrease the Capacity of the VRM, which might lead to a lower Minimum Retention Time then desired. Calculate upfront, if the available Storage is enough!   Start the Configuration Manager and add the local VRM to the System.     Change to the Tab My devices and select the Target on the Storage Device you want to move.   Set all LUNs to the Type Read Only. It should look like this then. Now press the button Set and acknowledge it in the next window. After, the window looks like this and the LUNs are now in Read Only Mode. Now you need to wait until your desired Retention time passed (eg 30 days), afterwarts you can remove the Storage from the VRM and add it to another VRM (In this Process the Storage needs to be Factory defaulted to work).

    The calculation of the storage capacity is done in different way in Configuration Client and VRM Monitor:  In BVMS Configuration Client Capacity (GB) stands for the available physical capacity of the storage, as calculated and provided by the storage vendor (for example NetApp). In VRM Monitor – under Target Overview – Total is listed the number of all available blocks multiplied by the size of the blocks that is by default 1GB. This calculation concerns the logical storage and depends on the way the storage is used (for example how many Luns are imported in the system).     See also:  Video Storage Calculator web site

In the Tab VRM add a new VRM and/or select already configured VRM. Click on Advanced settings and add the following parameters If you need to license the system with more than the default 1000 licenses – create the parameter with Name VrmLicenseRequestCount and as value put the required number of licenses. The parameter name is case sensitive If you need to change the duration of the period between each license request (there is always one license request when the archiver starts) – create the parameter with Name VrmLicenseRequestPeriod. The duration of the period is in milliseconds. The default value is one hour. If the value is set to 0, the license request are disabled.

    Similar to VRM eXport Wizard 2.0,  encrypted and unencrypted VRM recordings can be exported (VRM block export) from any video surveillance system based on Bosch Video Recording Manager (VRM) and exported recordings can be converted to mp4-files.    VRM eXport Wizard 2.10 introduces a new look and feel of the graphical user interface and some UX changes. In general, the VRM eXport wizard is a software tool that allows you to export video directly from the VRM and to convert exported video data to mp4. You can find the VRM eXport wizard setup file in the VRM Master Installer or in the bonus directory of the BVMS zip file. Exports made with the VRM eXport Wizard 2.10 can be open in BVMS (Viewer) 9.0 or newer. In this document we describe how to use the VRM eXport Wizard for either export of video data and conversion of the exorted video data to mp4. With the VRM eXport Wizard 2.10 encrypted and unencrypted VRM recordings can be exported (VRM block export) from any video surveillance system based on Bosch Video Recording Manager (VRM) and exported recordings can be converted to mp4-files.

    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

    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)
