    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: IP Camera: 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 Inconsistent Date 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.

    Potential for Data Inconsistency Issues on E-Series Storage Systems BOSCH and NetApp are partners and BOSCH is selling NetApp E2800 Simplex and E2800 Full-Duplex iSCSI Storage systems. Important: With the new controller firmware 11.50 there are issues fixed, which enforce an immediate update of all E2800 iSCSI Storage Systems (their controllers) Affected: DSA E-Series (E2800 12-bay) and DSA E-Series (E2800 60-bay) Example product variants: DSA-N2E8X4-12AT Base unit 12x4TB High-performance and high-capacity storage system base unit with iSCSI disk arrays, single controller. DSA E2800, 12 x 4 TB HDD, Order number DSA-N2E8X4-12A DSA-N2C8X4-12AT Dual controller unit 12x4TB High-performance and high-capacity storage system base unit with iSCSI disk arrays, dual controller. DSA E2800, 12 x 4 TB HDD, Order number DSA-N2C8X4-12AT Note: There are other models with various HDD capacity (e.g. 8TB harddrives and larger) available For more details visit the BOSCH product website With introduction of the DSA E-Series E2800 series in the BOSCH portfolio no specific BOSCH OEM NetApp Firmware is required as the BOSCH Submodel-ID is now supported in the generic Firmware versions which NetApp offer and release. The BOSCH submodel ID 356 ensures that the NetApp system is optimized for 24/7 video recording. Project technicians are anyhow requested to align with the BOSCH representatives  or BOSCH project teams to ensure that the recommended and tested NetApp Firmware for usage in BOSCH video recording environment is used. Summary of issue NetApp® has become aware of issues that could occur when an E-Series controller reboots at certain points during the evacuation of data from a drive that is performed as part of the sequence when a drive is being failed by the controller. As a result, there is a small possibility of data inconsistency on controllers running certain versions of E-Series SANtricity® OS controller software. Issue Description The issues are possible on E-Series controllers running 8.30, 8.40, 11.30, 11.40, and 11.50 versions of E-Series SANtricity OS controller software. The overall probability of these issues occurring is very low, but RAID 1 volumes have a higher probability of encountering the issues than other RAID levels or NetApp Dynamic Disk Pools. These issues do not affect traditional RAID volume groups that have no global hot spare drives because drive evacuation does not occur in this configuration. For information about fixes in these releases, view the readme notes for each revision release. Workaround No workaround available. Solution Upgrade E-Series SANtricity OS controller software to the latest applicable revision release for each platform as soon as possible. 11.50R1 Download: https://mysupport.netapp.com/products/p/eseries_santricityos.html?language=en-US Revisions can be found at https://mysupport.netapp.com/NOW/cgi-bin/software/ The NetApp controller Firmware is not published and offered by BOSCH or on BOSCH websites. The controller firmware 11.50 must be loaded directly from the NetApp websites. The firmware needed is published on a separate NetApp webpage and might not yet be listed in the regular download catalog. When searching for 11.50 for E2800 it can be found. Instrucitons will follow here ASAP. Bosch is very pleased to announce that the NetApp SANtricity OS 11.50.R1 is successfully tested on the E2800 controller units in conjunction with our cameras and video recording manager. Current units which are shipped from our BOSCH micht FW version 11.30 and need to be updated ASAP to 11.50 minimum (status 2019-05). BOSCH implemented OS 11.50.R1 into production which ensures that new ordered NetApp E2800 iSCSI storage systems are shpped with version 11.50.R1 pre-installed. From July 2019 onwards, controller units will ship with OS 11.50.R1. Additional information is available at NetApp and accessible after user registration. First go to https://mysupport.netapp.com/ to register.

    Background information: The Bosch Video Client is a 32bit application, CFM 5.50 and newer are 64bit applictions. 32bit applications can only R/W 32bit files (where as 64bit applications can R/W to both 32 & 64bit files), so in order for BVC to access the CFM database, this database also needs to be 32bit. Problem Description: If you need to configure newer devices with newer FW, you will need to install the relavant CFM version (e.g. CPP 7.3 Camera with FW 7.10.xxxx would require min CFM 6.20.xxxx), by installing the new CFM this will upgrade the original database to 64bit. Leading to an issue that BVC can not open the database! Solution: Reinstall CFM <5.5.x once more which will cause the database to be migrated back to 32bit. Important Notes: Strong database encryption must not be activated, otherwise BVC will fail to start.

    Microsoft Event Logging, when an error occurs, the system administrator or Integrator must determine what caused the error. The operator can then use the event log to help determine what conditions caused the error and identify the context in which it occurred. Starting Event Viewer The procedure for starting Event Viewer depends on your starting point, e.g. windows key + R type in ”eventvwr.msc” hit enter. Selecting Computers With the decent administrative access, you can select any computer in your network to view that Microsoft system event logs. To select computers in Event Viewer: In the top of the console tree, right-click Event Viewer (local), and then click Connect to another computer. Enter FQDN/NetBIOS name or browser to the regarding machine Adjusting Event Viewer Settings In the console tree, right-click the appropriate log file, and then click Properties. Click the General tab. Saving Event Logs In the console tree, right-click the appropriate log file, and then click Save Log File As. Navigate to the subfolder in which you want to save the file, type a name for the file, click the file type, and then click Save. Clearing Event Logs In the console tree, right-click the appropriate log file, and then click clear all Events. You are prompted for whether you want to save the log to a file before clearing it. Click “Yes” to save a log and clear all events. If you click No, the log is not saved, but all events are cleared from the selected Event log. If you click Cancel, the request to clear the log is canceled. Viewing Event Details In the console tree, right-click the appropriate log file. A list of events in the log file is displayed in the details pane of Event Viewer. Click a specific event in the details pane to display the Event Properties dialog box and details about the event. Filtering Events In the console tree, right-click the appropriate log file, and then click Properties. Click the Filter tab. Type the appropriate information that you would like to filter. Finding Events In the console tree, right-click the appropriate log file. On the View menu, click Find. Type the appropriate information that you would like to find in the dialog box, and then click Find Next.   Event Types: Event type Description Error An event that indicates a significant problem such as loss of data or loss of functionality. For example, if a service fails to load during startup, an Error event is logged. Warning An event that is not necessarily significant, but may indicate a possible future problem. For example, when disk space is low, a Warning event is logged. If an application can recover from an event without loss of functionality or data, it can generally classify the event as a Warning event. Information An event that describes the successful operation of an application, driver, or service. For example, when a network driver loads successfully, it may be appropriate to log an Information event. Note that it is generally inappropriate for a desktop application to log an event each time it starts. Success Audit An event that records an audited security access attempt that is successful. For example, a user's successful attempt to log on to the system is logged as a Success Audit event. Failure Audit An event that records an audited security access attempt that fails. For example, if a user tries to access a network drive and fails, the attempt is logged as a Failure Audit event.   The events themselves are what we’re trying to see, of course, and their usefulness can range from really specific and obvious things that you can fix easily to the totally undefined messages that don’t make any sense and you can’t find any information on your preferred search engine. example: The regular fields on the display contain: Log Name – while in older versions of Windows everything got dumped into the Application or System log, in the more modern editions there are dozens or hundreds of different logs to choose from. Each Windows component will most likely have its own log. Source – this is the name of the software that generates the log event. The name usually doesn’t directly match with a filename, of course, but it is a representation of which component did it. Event ID – the all-important Event ID can actually be a little confusing. If you were to Google for “event ID 122” that you see in the next screenshot, you wouldn’t end up with very useful information unless you also include the Source, or application name. This is because every application can define their own unique Event IDs. Level – This tells you how severe the event is – Information just tells you that something has changed or a component has started, or something has completed. Warning tells you that something might be going wrong, but it isn’t all that important yet. Error tells you that something happened that shouldn’t have happened, but isn’t always the end of the world. Critical, on the other hand, means something is broken somewhere, and the component that triggered this event has probably crashed. User – this field tells you whether it was a system component or your user account that was running the process that caused the error. This can be helpful when looking through things. OpCode – this field theoretically tells you what activity the application or component was doing when the event was triggered. In practice, however, it will almost always say “Info” and is pretty useless. Computer – on your home desktop, this will usually just be your PC’s name, but in the IT world, you can actually forward events from one computer or server to another computer. You can also connect Event Viewer to another PC or server. Task Category – this field is not always used, but it ends up basically being an informational field that tells you a bit more information about the event. Keywords – this field is not usually used, and generally contains useless information. As a rule of thumb (common way of doing), you should try searching by the general description, or the Event ID and the source, or a combination of those values. Just remember that the Event ID is unique for each application. So there is a lot of overlap and you can’t just search for “Event ID 122” only. This is because users might find the list is too large and too general, your specific search aspect might not fit your issue.

    Upcoming with FW 7.10 and CM 6.20, Camera Trainer is a licensable Intelligent Video Analytics module that allows uses to define objects of intereste and train their own detectors for them based on examples of target objects and non-target objects. In contrast to the moving objects detected in general by IVA 7.10, Camera Trainer allows detection of both moving and non-moving objects, separates and immediately classifies them. Training can be done both on live video as well as on recordings available through the respective camera. The resulting detectors can be down- and uploaded for distribution to other cameras. The attached fact sheet lists the cameras that support Camera Trainer. The attached technical note describes in-depth what Camera Trainer is, how it works, what to use it for and what not, and how to configure it.

    Combined firmware package 6.60 – applicable to all platforms The Release Letter of the combined firmware package for all platforms 6.60.1321 provides information about the dependencies between firmware versions for a better understanding of the upgrade process of devices with older firmware. CCP4 and CPP6 devices: Due to an internal file system being introduced to CPP4 and CPP6 since firmware 6.10 and architectural changes thereof, a direct upgrade from firmware below version 6.10 to latest firmware is only possible via intermediate firmware 6.1x. CPP4 cameras with firmware versions below 6.10 need to upload this package twice. For example, when having firmware 5.92 on a CPP4 device, you need to load the CPP all common firmware file two times: >  First time this is loaded the device will be updated to the 6.11.0021 which is part of the common file. >  Second time you load the common firmware file, the update to 06.50.0128 will be performed. CPP6 cameras with firmware versions below 6.10 need to upload the separate firmware version 6.1x first to receive the latest firmware version. This means that intermediate firmware version 6.1x for CPP6 needs to be requested from your technical support. A support ticket to Level 3 team at MKP PRM group via the support ticket system is needed. In case we see a high demand for that a new combined firmware file might be created by PRM. Only after receiving and uploading firmware 6.1x, you can upload combined firmware package for all platforms 6.50.0620 or CPP6 specific firmware  6.50.0128.  CPP5 devices: This combined firmware cannot be applied to CPP5 products with firmware version older than 5.91. It is required to upgrade to intermediate firmware 5.91 first This means that intermediate firmware version 5.91 for CPP5 needs to be requested from your technical support. Only after receiving and uploading firmware 5.91, you can upload combined firmware package for all platforms e.g. 6.50.0620 or CPP5 specific firmware  6.30.0059. To find a combined firmware file in the downloadstore you can use the folowing URL syntax: https://downloadstore.boschsecurity.com/index.php?type=fw&filter=CPP or you use the CPP 6.50 combined file here: https://downloadstore.boschsecurity.com/FILES/KnowledgeBase/CPP_FW_6.50.0620.fw and Releaseletter of that combined firmware package: https://downloadstore.boschsecurity.com/FILES/KnowledgeBase/Bosch_Releaseletter_CPP_FW_6.50.0620.pdf Note: Upgrading from versions lower than 5.5x To upgrade to a newer firmware version using this combined firmware package, firmware versions before 5.5x require an intermediate update cycle using the respective platform firmware version mentioned above. Restrictions: This firmware and its included platform firmware builds are not applicable to MPEG-4 products. The final firmware version for VIP-X1600-XFM4 modules is FW 5.53. No newer firmware will be provided for these modules. Configuration Manager cannot upload this Combined Firmware file to VIP-X1600-XFM4 modules. Use the module’s web page instead for uploading; or use the separate firmware file. The final firmware version for CPP3 devices is FW 5.74. No newer firmware will be provided for these products. The Combined Firmware file does not load onto VG4 AUTODOME or AUTODOME Easy II via the browser when running a firmware version before 5.52.0017. The specific platform file should be used instead. (Note: In case any link might not work to the current DownloadStore, see attached a copy PDF of the Release Letter.) How to get and request a BOSCH Legacy Firmware: The procedure to request and get an legacy firmware that is no longer online in the web is as follows: Customers are kindly requested to reach out to the local BOSCH Support (L1 and L2 team). Bosch Level 2 will ask for the exact BOSCH Commercial Type Number (CTN). The local BOSCH team can check the Global End of service date. The project background (How many of these devices/cameras) need to be collected.  The relevant BOSCH Technical Support (e.g. Level 2) can explain and check if there is the chance to update the project and included management software in order to be able to use the latest BOSCH device firmware as the goal is to have a non-vulnerable product in productive environments. In case there is no newer firmware available (hardware was discontinued), a commercial hardware upsell can be recommended. In general all firmware that is not available on the product catalog, and for all firmware files that are ranked to have vulnerabilities, this need to be documented in a Technical Support case. In case legacy firmware is anyhow needed and requested by our customers, the Bosch Technical support will start an approval flow. The BOSCH Level 3 Technical Support will provide a form/document that must be signed by the installer/endcustomer. See an example PDF (empty) "Example_Aged_Software_Release_form.pdf" attached to this article. Such a form will be prepared by the BOSCH Level 3 Technical support team and provided to our customer/installer in order to confirm that legacy firmware is then used on the risk of the installer and customer (See text and legal note in the PDF). In the future BOSCH plan to introduce and setup a self-service portal for all customers to simplify this process. ___________________________________________________________________________ The above mentioned combined firmware 6.50 supports: CPP7.3 HD and UHD cameras update from FW 6.40 or newer to latest FW 6.50 CPP7 UHD cameras update from FW 6.30 or newer to latest FW 6.50 CPP6 UHD cameras update from FW 6.10 or newer to latest FW 6.50 CPP5 encoders update from FW 5.91 or newer to latest FW 6.30 CPP4 HD cameras update from FW < 6.10 to intermediate FW 6.11 update from FW 6.10 or newer to latest FW 6.50 CPP3 cameras and encoders update from FW 4.54.0026 or newer to latest FW 5.74 CPP-ENC VIP-X1600-XFM4 encoders: update from FW 4.2x or newer to latest FW 5.53 VJT XF and VJD-3000 update to latest FW 5.97 The combined firmware package includes the following build versions: CPP7.3 FW 6.50.0128 CPP7 H.264 6.50.0128 CPP6 H.264 6.50.0128 CPP5 H.264 6.30.0059 CPP4 H.264 6.50.0128 CPP4 H.264 6.11.0021 CPP3 H.264 5.74.0010 CPP-ENC H.264 5.97.0005 for VJT XF family, VJD-3000 and VJC-7000 CPP-ENC H.264 5.53.0004 for VIP X1600 XFM4 For detailed description please refer to the separate release letters. Customers can upload such combined firmware packages by using multi-select in the Configuration tool "BOSCH Configuration Manager" (currently available in version 06.01.0157 at the BOSCH DownloadStore or Product catalog > Video Software > Video Management Systems > Configuration Manager) When using the multi-select option in Configuration Manager, please make sure this combined firmware package for all platforms can be uploaded to all the devices selected and there are no additional requirements or intermediate steps needed for any of the devices in question. This article has status of 31st of October 2018 and changes in this procedure might be introduced. When changes are done, then this article will be updated. Therefore check this article from time to time.

     Time is everything: meetings, public transportation, religion, transactions: the whole world is working because the concept of “time” exists. Within a security (or any other) system this is not different: recording schedules, logging, authorizations, encryption keys, timelines, all of these concepts can exist because of time. As a result, time can either make or break a system: problems can appear only due to a time difference of a couple of seconds between two system components. The attached document describes how time services can be configured in a BVMS environment.

    Keeping an eye on system messages and to collect logging data at a central site just got a whole lot easier:  Syslog feature is implemented in all IP BOSCH Products for many years. Since latest firmware versions a GUI on the WEB-page of the IP cameras was added. The BOSCH IP cameras as network devices can continuously send system messages via Syslog. This funciton must be activated and configured before as a devinded Syslog IP as destination for those messages must be activated and network administrators need to monitor those data. There are many different monitoring tool on the market. Configuration and technical analysis functions of those are in responsibility of those software vendors. Known tools are PRTG NETWORK MONITOR from PAESSLER Kiwi Syslog Server EventLog Analyzer from ManageEngine and many more. Especially for incidents that happen unpredictable and do not necessarily trigger an alert message can be analyzed with syslog even throughout reboots of equipment (switch reboot / IP camer reboot etc.) as the syslog reconnects to the destination server. As well in cases were many system items are involved this can be very helpful (several switches / many IP cameras involved). By using the BOSCH Configuration Manager or Bosch Configuration Client software can help to quickly setup the syslog function for many cameras in just a few mouseclicks. In current firmware generation 6.xx for BOSCH IP video products a enhanced user webpage to configure loggings that are also sent out via syslog  Event Logging Software Sealing Debug Logging  In case this syslog function need to be was introduced and added. At the Configuration webpages those extra logging can be collected and downloaded. With Syslog logging data can be sent to a syslog server.

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 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
