With the DSA E2800 Bosch introduced Multipathing. It is a fault-tolerance technique that defines more than one physical path between the camera and its iSCSI storage devices through redundant network connections.
When using this feature, recording of video data and replaying video data is possible even in case of an iSCSI controller failure. To ensure also that outages of infrastructure equipment (e.g. Switch) could be covered, we recommend following Interconnection.

BVMS v10.1 and BVMS v11.0 come with a checkbox where you can logon to the Operator Client with Windows Credentials.
If you want to use this function, you need to set up the BVMS Configuration Client and browse the AD users-groups. Then, the users can sign in to Operator Client with their Windows-Credentials.
What to do when MIC IP camera is unable to perform the Object Classification in IVA detection?
Based on examples of target objects and non-target objects, the Camera Trainer program uses machine learning to allow the user to define objects of interest and generate detectors for them.
Using Configuration Manager, you can configure the Camera Trainer program using both live video as well as recordings available through your MIC IP cameras.
The camera also includes the latest release of Intelligent Video Analytics application for use on prepositions. Designed for mission-critical applications, the video analytics can reliably detect, track, and analyze moving objects while suppressing unwanted alarms from spurious sources in the image, even in harsh weather conditions. Advanced tasks like multiple line crossing, loitering, idle / removed object detection, crowd density estimation, occupancy and people counting are available for live alarming and forensic search. Object filters based on size, speed, direction, aspect ratio, and color can be defined.
In order to perform Object Classification correctly, please make sure that you have correctly:
set the correct Orientation
Save all the pre-positions again if the orientation stetting is changed
calibrated the camera
A simplified calibration mode reduces installation time significantly because you only need to enter the installation height once for each camera, independent of pre-positions.
After the camera is calibrated, the analytics engine can automatically classify objects as upright person, car, bike, or truck.)
enabled 3D tracking
set it up the tasks and followed the VCA manual.
Please see an overview of object classification in the following article:

FW 11.50.2 must be used for Single Controllers and 11.60.2 for Dual Controllers
In Q1 of the year 2020 the BU BT-VS announced that NetApp forces to update all systems E2800 to newer firmware than 11.40.x.
At that time, it was strongly recommended to go to version 11.50.2 and in February 2020 recommendation was given for 11.50.R2
The version 11.50.R2 was forced by NetApp to
get proper NetApp support services while valid warranty contract is active
and to fix vulnerability aspects.
Newer NetApp controller firmware might be approved and qualified by BOSCH.
(e.g. status 08/2020 there is an 11.60.2 qualified by BOSCH) - Details can always be found at the BOSCH product catalogue and Release Note
All customers owning a NetApp storage system with valid warranty agreement and registered unit do have access to the public announcement of NetApp.
This was announced by NetApp on their support websites (see https://mysupport.netapp.com/).
Please follow our BOSCH Knowledge Base and monitor for updates at this article for important news. The BOSCH sub model ID 356 ensures that the NetApp system is optimized for 24/7 video recording.

The parts included in the kit (DIP-7GRSN-P6) are the following:
1 x Graphics card for DIVAR IP all-in-one 7000 appliances
1 x Sound card for DIVAR IP all-in-one 7000 appliances
4 x Mini DisplayPort to DisplayPort adapter
The kit must contain the proper brackets for the low profile (2u) and normal mounting (3u).
At first sight, you might think that the model is the correct one that shows in the Datasheet, but the Video card is smaller than the DIP Slot.
Please note that it may be possible that:
the Audio card comes with the normal mounting (3u) bracket preinstalled and the kit contains the low profile bracket
while the Video card comes with the low profile preinstalled and the kit contains the normal mounting bracket
The video card model is the same for all types of sizes of DIP-7000 AIO.

BVMS is a data-driven video management system that supports predictive solutions by establishing a decision center delivering actionable insights to customers.
The latest version offers a map-based tracking assistant and improved geographical awareness with online maps. Read on to learn how to configure the map-based tracking assistant.
The map-based tracking assistant requires a license. Before beginning, check the license in Configuration Client by accessing the License Inspector, which is found under the Tools menu.
The value of the Online map and Map-based tracking assistant licenses must list "True" in the License Limit column.
VCA (Video content analysis) is the process of automatically analyzing video images to alarm on predefined events like the detection of moving objects in the monitored area or tampering with the camera. It can also be used to gather statistics about the detected objects.
Depending on the camera type, the following VCA algorithm are available in Bosch cameras:
– Intelligent Video Analytics:
Mission-critical, long-distance intrusion detection in extreme weather conditions.
Detection and tracking of moving objects.
– Intelligent Video Analytics Flow:
Basic motion detection of cells in a grid with velocity and direction. Used for counter flow detection in crowds.
– Essential Video Analytics:
Reliable video analytics for small and medium businesses, large retail stores, commercial buildings, and warehouses. Detection and tracking of moving objects.
Basic change detection of cells in a grid. Can be used to trigger recordings.
– Tamper detection:
Detects camera occlusion, turning away from the monitored scene, extreme lighting conditions and basic idle / removed object detection.
If you would like to stop this setting, please follow the steps below.
In order to increase system security in BVMS, it is recommended to set the Global CHAP password.
This article contains the configuration steps for an existing fully operational BVMS 11.x system with no CHAP password configured.
The purpose of this article is to provide a step by step guide about how to perform backup and recovery procedures of the VRM data base in the DIVAR IP 2000 EZ Recording Appliance.
Backing Up the Working Configuration:
1.To backup the working configuration of a DIVAR IP 2000 Recording Appliance, open the Appliance's "Dashboard":
2. From the Dashboard select the "Configuration" tab in the top right hand portion of your browse:
Monitor Group gives operators flexible control over the content of a video wall or allows them to let the system take over this control automatically based on pre-defined scenarios.
This article describes h ow to create a Monitor Group on a decoder VJD 7xxx/ 8xxx in BVMS Configuration Client.
°Each decoder requires one or two channel expansion licenses (depending on the number of monitor ports available)
The current MG implementation requires the availability of the Management server during operation
Former Digital wall implementation has been removed in BVMS >=11.0
NEW BVMS v.11.0 feature
The configuration step 9+10 from this article can be done also using the “Protect iSCSI storage with global CHAP password” (Menu item under Hardware). In case the function has been already enabled, step 9+10 is obsolete.
Some devices that demand 60W or less are not powered by the NPD-9501A Midspan
Possible causes and solution(s)
Some devices that demand 60W or less are not powered by the NPD-9501A Midspan
The Midspan was released before the standards on mega poe were crystallized into accepted definitions at the IEEE standardization body. This device specifically targets to support power application to Bosch products that could not be served by lower capacity power source equipment.
Using power devices that are not listed for this product in the datasheet migth result in power failure.
NPD-9501 Midspan will not work with UHO-PoE-10 Housing
For products demanding 60W or less advise to use NPD-6001B Midspan.
To achieve a broader compatibility with switches and Midspans, for example the NPD-9501 Midspan and Cisco PoE+ switches (like C2960X, C3560CX and C9200).
The UHO-POE-10 Outdoor housing received a product enhancement.
How to identify if UHO-PoE-10 is the new variant?
The new batch contains products which contain SN starting with 404023113800040670
POE module is Blue, previous was Black!
Not all Cisco PoE+ switches are able to power up the UHO-PoE-10 or VSP-UHO-PoE-10 outdoor housing (F.01U.300.502, F.01U.332.052).
Bosch has introduced the UHO-PoE-10 in 2014 following the IEEE802.3-2009 standards
Cisco claims that the Bosch UHO-PoE-10 at startup for a short moment (around 1 micro second) exceeds maximum current peek allowed by the updated IEEE 802.3-2015 standard, allowing the PSE (Power Source Equipment) to withdraw the power as a protective measure.
Due to analogue overcurrent protector components in the Cisco switch it can happen that tolerances may cause variety in behavior over different Cisco switches, even when the same model and setups are used.
Currently this behavior is only known on some Cisco models. (reports were seen on C2960X, C3560CX and recently C9200.)
If one of DIVARs IP 5000 AIO is selected on a user profile, the Operator Client opens the site and works fine. One message is displayed when two or more DIVARs are added into the same Enterprise system.
If you already have a DIP 5000 AIO into your Enterprise system and you want to add additional units but you receive the following message, you can solve this by using the steps below:
"Server of configuration database is already in the server list. Remove either the server that is twice in the list or make sure that the configuration database is not cloned between servers."
If you have the option "Extended (security)/configuration mode" active on a VIDEOJET decoder 7000 (VJD-7513) in Configuration Manager, then no video image will be shown and the BOSCH logo will be displayed at the cameo of the monitor output of the decoder.
This is as designed in Configuration Manager, and this mode is to give you the opportunity to enable the SSD Encryption and to disable the USB ports.
Once you are finished changing the extended security features, you must uncheck the check box and the decoder will go back to normal functioning.
If the administrator account (which was originally created when initial setup wizard was run) has been deleted locally and another new administrator account was created, then it is not possible to create user via web. Only locally is possible, as the application is still looking for the original admin account.
A workaround here would be to default your Divar Network and follow the setup wizard > this will create the administrator user again and will let you create new users again.
Or create the new users locally on your Divar.
Bosch strongly recommends upgrading to the latest firmware for the best possible functionality, compatibility, performance and security.
Check http://downloadstore.boschsecurity.com/ regularly to see if there is a new firmware version available.
Alarm functions include local inputs and relay outputs, plus motion detection in user-defined areas. If an alarm is detected, the DIVAR can:
send an e-mail notification and/or FTP push
sound a buzzer and/or display a warning
activate local alarm output
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).

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.
