    This article explains how BVMS can be configured to connect to an LDAP (or Microsoft Active Directory) and use it as a base for user authentication.   BVMS is able to function in a (Windows) domain-controlled environment. The BVMS (and related) services run under the local system account. If another (domain-controlled) account is used to run these services, their permissions level should be the same as the local system account. It is recommended to add the Windows server to the domain first (as a domain member), before installing the BVMS software. The BVMS configuration is independent from the domain configuration, however, crucial changes in the domain could break the connection between the BVMS system and the LDAP authentication mechanism.

    Related Products: BVMS, application crash, memory dump This article lists the scenarios in which technical support normally request dump file from a BVMS system. It contains general guidelines how to create a dump file for BVMS system and provides links to more concrete articles, that correspond to particular issues and exact steps to create a dump. BVMS dumps are needed to troubleshoot the following types of issues: Application crashes – dump is expected to provide more information about the cause of the crash and its origin. Memory or handle leaks – dump is expected to point to their origins Deadlocks, freezes and hangs – dump is expected to point to their origins Recommended tool to create BVMS dumps. The recommended tool is Procdump. It is a command line tool which must be started from the command shell. Development provides couple of .bat files that start Procdump with predefined parameters and cover the most common dump creation cases. The tool as well as the set of .bat files are attached to this article: BVMS_DumpTools_V2.zip The batch file names follow a naming guideline: <Executable>_<Dump use case> , where <Executable> is one of: ConfigClient ConfigWizard OperatorClient ManagementServer ArchivePlayer ExceptionTest and <Dump use case> is one of SingleDump TwoDumps DumpOnException DumpOnHang ActivatePostmortemDebugging There are 3 possible error scenarios and corresponding dump creation methods: Dump creation for reproducible crashes that trigger Windows Error Reporting Run the affected application/service (Operator Client, Configuration Client or Management Server Service) Reproduce the steps that lead to the crash Leave the Windows crash dialog open Run the corresponding batch file for creating a single dump: *_SingleDump.bat. E.g. run OperatorClient_SingleDump.bat to create a single dump of the Operator Client process. Provide support with the resulting .dmp file a description of the steps to reproduce the problem ConfigCollection Note: attached you can find a configured example for this scenario and application Operator Client - BVMS_OC_dump_onException.zip Dump creation for reproducible memory or handle leaks Run the affected application/service (Operator Client, Configuration Client or Management Server Service) Run the corresponding batch file for creating two dumps: *_TwoDumps.bat. E.g. run OperatorClient_TwoDumps.bat to create two dumps of the Operator Client process. Note that by default, the delay between the two dumps is set to one hour (3600 seconds). Depending on the magnitude of the memory leak, you might want to increase/decrease the delay. To do that, edit file *_TwoDumps.bat: replace value "3600" by a value that fits your needs e.g. a value of "7200" will create two dumps with a delay of two hours. Reproduce the steps that lead to the memory leak. Wait until the second dump was created. Provide support with the resulting two .dmp files a description of the steps to reproduce the memory leak a ConfigCollection Dump creation for crashes/hangs/freezes that are hard to reproduce Deactivate the restarting option for Operator Client / Configuration Client: To deactivate the restarting option for Operator Client / Configuration Client: edit ..\Bosch\VMS\bin\ConfigClient.exe.config or ..\Bosch\VMS\bin\OperatorClient.exe.config. Navigate to section <appSettings> add a new entry <add key = "DisableExceptionHandling" value="TRUE" />. Run ActivatePostmortemDebugging.bat Run the affected application/service (Operator Client, Configuration Client or Management Server Service) As soon as the issue appears, check whether the dump was created. Provide support with the resulting .dmp file description of the steps to reproduce the crash ConfigCollection Note: attached you can find a configured example for this scenario and application Operator Client - BVMS_OC_dump_Just-In-Time-Debuger.zip

    Never lose track of an object of interest! Intelligent Tracking automatically zooms in to and follows a selected Intelligent Video Analytics object as far as possible with the camera. For AUTODOME / MIC IP 7000, this means automatically steering the camera to zoom in to the object and follow it. For a FLEXIDOME IP panoramic 7000, Intelligent Tracking is available in the Virtual PTZ video and steers the dewarped cut-out. For DINION / FLEXIDOME IP 7000 / 8000 cameras, Intelligent Tracking can steer a region of interest (ROI) stream. This article describes how to set Intelligent Tracking up with FW 6.30 and lists the differences based on the camera types.

    The BVMS Logbook database can be moved to another SQL Server. This article describes the steps that are necessary to migrate the database and describes how to confirm if the migration was successful.   BVMS is using Microsoft SQL Server Express to store its logbook. Based on the information provided by Microsoft (Compare SQL Server 2017 editions), SQL Server Express is limited to a 10GB database size. This could be insufficient for larger installations or installations that require a very long logbook retention time. Additionally, some organizations have a dedicated SQL server environment which should be utilized by all applications. The BVMS Logbook database can be moved to another SQL Server. This guide describes the steps that are necessary to migrate the database and describes how to confirm if the migration was successful.

Related Products: BVMS SDK, Cameo SDK, BVMS  Overview: Analyzing BVMS systems interaction with BVMS SDK based application is a challenging task. One needs to determine if the issue is based on wrong implementation of the BVMS SDK functionality, wrong programming practices, functionality and runtime behavior of BVMS system with SDK functionality or BVMS SDK issues. In order to troubleshoot BVMS SDK or Cameo SDK application 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? Do SDK components link to 3rdParty devices or applications?   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 source code and/or Log files The optimal approach is to provide both source code and logging for the problematic BVMS SDK application. If it is not possible to provide the code, we will start the troubleshooting process based only on the logging. Source Code Provide a little sample application that illustrates the BVMS SDK issue and list the reproduction steps. Logfiles Add log outputs to the SDK application functionality. The logs should illustrate which BVMS SDK functionality was called at which time. Provide the logs to support.   List of Typical Mistakes that are often seen when troubleshooting BVMS / Cameo SDK based applications   Use of Thread. Sleep() in event handlers - Consequence: loss of events in customer SDK application. Implementations that are not thread safe - Consequence: unexpected SDK application effects Unintentional introduction of multithreading issues by using timers - Consequence: unexpected SDK application effects Application without "speed control" - Consequence: operator overload in case of high event frequency Lack of configuration change handling - Consequence: data inconsistencies in SDK application (access to no longer existing devices) Lack of traces/logging in SDK code - Consequence: not detected malfunctions and troubleshooting difficulties Lack of error tolerance in SDK code - Consequence: unhandled exceptions in SDK application / script Lack of exception handling - Consequence: SDK application crashes
