Standard Service Documents 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).

When using Configuration Manager, each device has a status icon.
The method below shows you how to generate an updated certificate for Bosch IP Camera's and VRM Servers
Here we are talking about Certificates, the Icon is colored Yellow with an exclamation mark.
Using the mouse over Tooltip, the device is saying exactly what is wrong with the certificate connection.
VRM on a DIVAR IP 5000:
Right click on the device to Show Certificates, if you wish to view them.
We can see that there are multiple things wrong.
The Cert is not Trusted
Cert Name mismatch.
First is inconsistent date:
All IP devices and PC’s must be synchronized on Date time page (group General)
Second is invalid certificate
First quick look on certificate requirement level, navigate to Preferences -> Configuration Manager -> Access -> Security:
The certificate must just be valid - self signed certificate matching host name/IP address will be sufficient.
We need to generate a new certificate on Certificate page.
Clicking "Generate certificate" button:
should open a certificate creation dialog - most important options are matching common name and matching validity time.
After the certificate is created correct usage must be set as shown below:
IP Camera Certificate
To apply changes VRM must be restarted.
If certificate requirement is higher, then a validatable chain of certification must be used (This would be setup by a System Integrator or IT Administrator):
Trusted - the signing entity CA (e.g. VeriSign) must be trusted on target PC
Issued by this CA - There is a Micro CA setup on this PC.

How to terminate a M12 connector for FLEXIDOME micro 5000 MP?
Both RJ45 and M12 plug connectors are available with IEC 11801:2002 Cat5 compliance. This further simplifies the concurrent use of both connector types within a single system. Assembly consists of three easy steps, none of which require specialist tools. The plug connectors, compliant with all standards and fully shielded against EMC interference, are available in four-pin and eight-pin configurations. They can be connected to flexible or rigid wires, with sizes ranging from AWG 26 to AWG 22. This makes the connectors suitable for all Industrial Ethernet transmission systems, Ethernet-based fieldbus systems such as Profinet, and EtherNet/IP up to gigabit speeds. The M12 Quickon connector provides a sturdy metal housing with a plug-and-turn mechanism. A 360 degree shielding connection with an iris spring means the connector is well suited to system environments with large amounts of EMC interference. The compact design of the RJ45 Quickon connector, on the other hand, makes it suitable for horizontal or vertical multi-port connection (as is frequently required by switches, for example). Connector ID rings are available in eight colors to visually aid patch-bay layout.
