What happens when you upgrade the SW of your Management Server form e.g. BVMS 10.0 to BVMS 10.1 and you have not prepared a BVMS 10.1 activation key beforehand?
=> The System will be unlicensed and Operator Client will not be able to connect to the MS as long the new BVMS 10.1 activation key is not provided to the system via Config-Client.
Therefore, performing the steps from this article is absolutely necessary.
Load balancing is provided with respect to the bandwidth and the number of iSCSI connections and is configurable per IP address ( iSCSI target).
Load-balancing parameters are optimized for the DIVAR IP 5000 default configuration (JBOD). When running DIVAR IP 5000 in RAID 1 mode, load-balancing parameters may need adaptation in BVMS.
Navigate in the device tree of BVMS Configuration Client to VRM devices > Local VRM > [Context Menu of the storage expansion] > Load Balancing

This article explains how to set an Unconfigured Bad Drive to Unconfigured Good on a DIVAR IP 6000/ 7000.
This step is required if the new drive is not listed under Unconfigured Drives. A possible reason for the Unconfigured Bad status is when a device that has not been removed properly is reconnected to the controller.
Which are the RTSP request URLs of SONY cameras for getting live stream?
The URL for RTSP stream (for example in VLC Media Player) should have the following format:
or for Stream 2: rtsp://IP/media/video2
or in case credentials are needed: rtsp://user:password@IP/media/video1
Note: If you cannot access one of the streams , the likely cause for this issue is that the stream is not enabled in the video codec settings.
SNC-DH140: In the web interface, go to Setup > Camera, and in the video codec Tab, Verify Image 2 Codec is not off.
SNC-VM600: In the web interface, go to Setting > Video/Audio, and in the video codec Tab, Verify Image 2 Codec is not off.
❗ Please refer also to the attached document which describe s technical details about RTSP streaming function supported by the 6th generation of Sony Network Came ra s:

Normally, to be able to view a camera in the Operator Client, you need to:
Go to the Maps and Structure tab from Configuration Client.
Drag and drop the camera in question from the Device Tree to the Logical Tree.
Save and Activate the changes. This step is very important because otherwise, you will not be able to see the changes in Operator Client, even though the first 2 steps were carried out in Configuration Client.
In the past (prior to Windows Server 2012 R2), in order to perform NIC Teaming, we would have needed two adapters which were from the same vendor, and a third-party software that would make the teaming possible and present the OS with just one “virtual” network card.Now from Windows Server 2012 R2 and up, this is built-in and its hardware agnostic.
This means you can use whatever network cards you want and the teaming will work like a charm.
What software can be used to configure the Bosch MIC 550 Series Camera?

The haneWIN DHCP server software implements a DHCP and BOOTP server based on RFC 2131. The DHCP Server is implemented as a native service for background operation, A Control Panel applet provides interactive access to the service.
The server supports automatic DNS updates for DHCP configured clients.
The latest version is available and can be downloaded from here.
According to the Installation Manual of the DIVAR IP 7000/ 6000:
All DIVAR IP systems are preconfigured with default network, user and iSCSI settings.
By default, the virtual network adapter (the two physical NIC ports are teamed by default) is configured to obtain a valid network address from a DHCP server in the local network.
The haneWIN DHCP server software supports multiple address pools for dynamic IP address assignment as well as fixed IP address assignment to clients.
Strange behaviors of the Divar IP 6000/7000 R2 start from a root cause that need to be found. Log files are the most comprehensive and help the Central Technical Support team to find it and provide you further assistance.
This article provides you a step-by-step guide on how you can collect MegaRAID logs for DIVAR IP 6000/7000 R2.
In many camera systems installed for observation and or security purposes, the camera is used as an information gathering source, providing video streams and I/O alarm facilities as part of the total system.
Information, such as scene details in the provided camera’s stream, can be sent to monitoring centers where operators can interpret the relevance of the information. According to his or her human involvement in this case, the follow-up actions for this information for the end-user are manually invoked.
In systems where no operators are available, the same camera information can be diagnosed internally; programmed and processed via smart algorithms in the camera and, as a result, IP connections are invoked to follow-up automation by other smart devices on the network.
In this article, you will find such an automation process between Bosch Cameras and Advantech Adam I/O devices.
In various Verticals, this Bosch - Advantech combined solution can fully automate adequate follow-up actions for the end-user without the cost of a video management system and human intervention.
