    Compared to hardware, in which it is relatively easy to define an end-of-support concept based on the expected lifetime, software behaves totally different. In theory, when the environment does not change, software can still be running ten years after it has been installed. As new versions of the software are released regularly, it is important for customers to know what they can expect from Bosch Building Technologies when the software is purchased. This document describes how Bosch Building Technologies handles the life-cycle of the BVMS, BIS, AMS, and APE, and in which state a specific release can reside. Additionally this document lists the up-to-date situation for all of those software packages.

    Question What is a CPP and where you can find it for you Bosch IP camera?   Answer   To guarantee high quality imaging through the entire range of products, Bosch Security Systems uses a Common Product Platform (CPP). A CPP is a reference design that serves as a solid base for future cameras. Based on the same CPP, sub- or new products can be generated more easily by using a different sensor and/or a different housing. Each product cannot only benefit from the features provided by the platform but can also advance its functionality. Other advantages: easier integration with 3rd party security system components, such as VMS and recording solutions. allows installers and integrators to use the same interface that supports the entire Bosch product portfolio. new camera and software releases, regardless of the price segment, can be easily added to an existing security surveillance system. it helps you to find the right version of firmware you need for your camera   Where you can find the CPP of you Bosch IP camera?   1. Release notes: you can search for it directly on the product page > under Downloads section you will see the CPP version of your camera. In this example, the CPP for FLEXIDOME IP panoramic 5000 MP camera is CPP4:   2.  You can find the CPP of your camera on the web page by entering the IP address of it. Go to Configuration > Service > System Overview   CPP & Firmware: All firmware releases for the various Common Product Platforms (CPP) for Bosch IP cameras and video encoders can be found on the Bosch Security and Safety Systems page in Download Area. For detailed information of a specific product, the product catalogue is the recommended way to go. Those, who just need to update firmware and already know the platform which their product is based on, may directly go to the Download Area for a quicker and condensed overview   Other useful articles related to CPP & Firmware: Where you can find the intermediate firmware version when upgrading CPP4 cameras? What is the maximum firmware version supported by cameras depending on the BVMS version?

    In rare situations it might happen that the mirrored SSD drives used for the Operating system need to be set-up from scratch when not only one, but both SSD drives used in the RAID-1 mirrored setup need to be exchanged with two new drives (e.g. Both SSD have been removed or were missing during first install attempt or imaging process from the recovery DVD. It is strongly recommended to always open a Technical Support Case at the local BOSCH Security Systems Level 1 Support team / help desk. Report the the following details to the support: Is the system registered at BOSCH? What is the System Serial-No.? What is the storage capcity of the new inserted two SSD drives at the rear side of the used DIVAR IP 70000 R2 system?

    Related Products: BVMS, application crash, memory dump This article lists the scenarios in which technical support normally request dump file from a BVMS system. 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 DumpOnHang 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
