Bosch has been providing 2 types of VRM packages: a 32bit and a 64bit version. Since VRM 3.82 we are only offering the 64bit version.
As all of our released DIVAP IP units started off as 32bit VRM which includes a Transcoder service.
The attached document aims to provide concerned parties, such as customers, users, operators or consultants, with an overview of data privacy and protection related features of BVMS Person Identification. Moreover, this document describes how data, as processed during the Person Identification steps, can be classified. Finally, this document lists technical measures for data protection in the context of BVMS Person Identification.
As video surveillance use grows in commercial, government and private use cases, the need for low-cost storage at scale is growing rapidly. BVMS, Bosch cameras, HPE hardware and SUSE Enterprise Storage provide a platform that is an ideal target for recording these streams.
There are numerous difficulties around storing unstructured video surveillance data at massive scale. Video surveillance data tends to be written only once or become stagnant over time. This stale data takes up valuable space on expensive block and file storage, and yet needs to be available in seconds. With this massive scale, the difficulty of keeping all the data safe and available is also growing. Many existing storage solutions are a challenge to manage and control at such scale. Management silos and user interface limitations make it harder to deploy new storage into business infrastructure.
The solution is software-defined storage (SDS). This is a storage system that delivers a full suite of persistent storage services via an autonomous software stack that can run on an industry standard, commodity hardware platform. Bosch, Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) and SUSE have partnered to deliver the benefits of SDS to the video surveillance industry. Using SUSE Enterprise Storage™ on HPE ProLiant DL and Apollo servers in a Bosch video surveillance environment simplifies the management of today’s volume of data, and provides the flexibility to scale for all enterprise storage needs.
The full description can be found in the attached whitepaper.
This troubleshooting guide, will guide you through the recovery steps of an DIP, without video data loss
General note: Using a Bosch DIP system without video data disks is a non supported use case, its mandatory to equip the system with data disks to recover the system.
Step 1 - Preperation
Download the attachment repair.zip and unzip the content
Prepare an USB-stick, rename it to SCRIPT
Copy the repair.txt extracted of the attachment on the USB-stick
Insert the USB-stick into an USB-slot of your machine
Insert the BOSCH r ecovery DVD into the DVD-drive
Step 2 - Create RAiD1
Boot the machine and enter the Intel RAiD MENU pressing CTRL + I
Navigate to CREATE RAiD VOLUME and hit enter
Set RAiD level to RAiD1(Mirror), navigate to CREATE VOLUME and hit enter
Exit the RAiD controller, navigate to EXIT and hit enter
Reboot the machine (e.g. press CTRL + ALT + DEL)
Step 3 - System Recovery
During the reboot, boot from DVD, press ENTER as the line will displayed
In the System Management Utility, click on CONSOLE
Type into command line "diskpart.exe" hit enter
Type into command line "list volume" hit enter and search for your USB-stick called SCRIPT, note down the assigned drive letter (LTR)
End diskpart.exe by typing on the command line "exit" hit enter
Type into the command line "diskpart.exe /s [YOUR_USB_DRIVE_LETTER]:\repair.txt" hit enter
Wait until the script has been finished and CLOSE the console
Step 4 - System Recovery
On the System Management Utililty click on SYSTEM RECOVERY (back to factory default)
NOTE: Do not select Initial Factory Setup, this will wipe all existing data!
As the recovery has been completed, click on OK to confirm and reboot
Do not eject the DVD and follow the instructions on your screen to initialize the system.

Related Products Bosch Recording Station Video Jet X Series BRS Question Is it possible to control an AutoDome connected to VideoJet X Series via Bilinx? Answer In BRS 8.8.1 Bilinx over Encoder only works for devices connected via VSDKPluginModule. Current supported devices are VIP-X1600-XFM4B and VIP-X1XF. VideoJet X series are connected per default via VCSModule, which does not support Bilinx communication. To be able to control Bilinx devices on VideoJet X series please configure the following work around: 1. In BRS Configuration > IP Cameras and encoders > Scan network (VideoJetX is found) and add VideoJetX device to BRS 2. Click VideoJetX and click Edit 3. In tab General settings select Device Type BVIP H.264 4. In tab Dome settings mark Activate and select Connection Bilinx/IP Dome Now the AutoDome can be controlled via Bilinx. Note: Due to performance reasons do not change the encoder stream from MPEG-4 SH++ to H.264 streaming! Only change the device type in BRS.

When installing Configuration Manager v6.20.0102 on Windows 10 and error message is received during installation of .NET Framework v4.7.2 that states:
The .NET Framework 4.7.2 is not supported on this operating system.
Windows 10 requires frequent updates that must be installed to keep the system compatible with new software installations. Windows 10 periodically releases a features update package that provides new features and compatibility. These are required for version of .NET framework installation.
Windows 10 release Information
Feature updates for Windows 10 are released twice a year, around March and September, via the Semi-Annual Channel and will be serviced with monthly quality updates for 18 months from the date of the release.
We recommend that you begin deployment of each Semi-Annual Channel release immediately as a targeted deployment to devices selected for early adoption and ramp up to full deployment at your discretion. This will enable you to gain access to new features, experiences, and integrated security as soon as possible.

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).
