    Answer It only depends on the version of BVMS you have. 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. On DIP 3000 you can only upgrade to BVMS 8.0. The version of Windows installed on it does not support older versions of BVMS, it is not compatible. Recommended to use BVMS 8.0, the largest version supported on that unit. You need to make sure that those cameras are on the list of tested devices of the version you have.   Regarding the ONVIF Compatibility of the cameras, please see the following Bosch Knowledge Base article: https://community.boschsecurity.com/t5/Security-Video/BVMS-ONVIF-Device-compatibility/ta-p/4252

    The following procedure describes how to restore DIVAR IP 5000 ALL-IN-ONE to the factory default image.   Step-by-step guide   1. Start the unit and press F7 during the BIOS power-on-selftest. The Recovery menu is displayed.   2. Select one of the following: – Initial factory setup: restores to factory default image and deletes all data on the HDDs. or – System Recovery (back to Factory Defaults): restores to factory default image; data on the HDDs will not be deleted.   Note: While the System Recovery option doesn't delete video footage stored on the data HDDs, it still replaces the complete OS ( operating system ) partition (including VMS settings) with a default configuration. In order to access existing video footage after recovery, the VMS configuration needs to be exported before System Recovery and re-imported afterwards.   Notice! Do not turn off the unit during the process. This will damage the Recovery media.   3. The unit starts from the Recovery media. If the setup is successful, press OK to restart the system.   4. Windows performs the initial setup of the operating system. The unit restarts after Windows has completed the setup. 5. After the restart of the unit, the factory settings are installed. 6. After the system has reboot, the next step is to change the BVRAdmin password. The default one is WSS4Bosch.

    By default all cameras/encoders added to BVMS will be configured to start NTP synchronization against the Operating System of the Management server. Whenever a central NTP Server is available the recommendation is to   synchronize all cameras against the NTP central server.   In BVMS ≥ 11 there is a new configuration option.

    Causes   When camera is set to auto track (by web interface) to "auto"-> IVA is detecting an object but camera is not following. Auto tracking works and metadata is displayed only on a stored preposition.   Solution   There was a change introduced starting with FW v.7.70. The new feature is:   i-Track only starts on VCA-Alarm.   You can either program this on presets, e.g a detection field or if you want to have Itrack active regardless of its position, you need to activate "global VCA" and assign task detection area "whole screen" now only activate iTrack "AUXON78" so the eye is in the corner, and your iTrack will always be on sharp   Note: IVA must be active for at least one preset scene in the VCA page on the Settings tab. If IVA is configured for one scene, then all other scenes have Intelligent Tracking enabled by default. If a scene, however, has Motion+ or IVA 5.5 Flow activated, then Intelligent Tracker is disabled for these scenes. Please refer also to the attached document.

    S imple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) is a common protocol to monitor the health status of a system. Such a monitoring system typically has a central management server that collect all the data from the system’s compatible components and devices. A network management server can poll the health status of a device via SNMP requests. This article shows how to configure Bosch cameras in order to be able to answer to such requests. For more information on SNMP and supported SNMP versions please check -   What should you know about SNMP and Bosch cameras SNMP support? Note: Please keep in mind that for SNMP v3 only the the Standard MIB II file is supported. This means that only general network device performance monitoring parameters can be requested. There is no Bosch Private MIB II extension for SNMP v3. For exact support details check -  What should you know about SNMP and Bosch cameras SNMP support?

    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)

    You are using one Divar network 2000 and you have a new Flexidome IP 5000i IR camera, but you cannot add it to the Divar because it is not displayed in “Detection” > “Device search” screen. System design: Divar network 2000 connected to one monitor Keyboard Flexidome IP 5000i IR Cause: You didn’t set up the internal IP settings of the DIVAR. Assigning the device to a network range which is different than the internal or external network range will lead to a situation where the cameras will no longer be accessible by the recorder. A warning message is shown and using this feature will not work.
