Collect Video SDK Logs for VSDK based applications:
Follow the exact steps:
1. Enable VSDK logging
1.1 Create the directory C:\VSDK\Log.
- VSDK writes logs only when this directory exists
- In case it was already existing, there would be old logs. Delete them.
1.2 Enable specific VSDK log level. This is done by creating registry key in the registry directory
-Click Start, type regedit in the Open box, and then click OK.
- Locate the registry directory VideoSDK5 (if it doesn’t exist, create it)- For 64 Bitsystem: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Bosch\VideoSDK5
- If no specific instructions are provided, create: "BVIPDebug" [DWORD] /[DWORD -32 bit]
The possible values are:
0 - No changes
1 - Debug mode - set the value to 1
2. Reproduce the issue.
2.1. VSDK logs are overwritten fast, so once the issue is reproduced, close the application (BVMS,
2.2. In case there is no application concerned, but the logs are written for a service (like MVS )
reproduce the issue
stop the service (in case of MVS it is Bosch MVS BVMS Provider), otherwise you will have only empty files in the directory VSDL/logs. Once the service is stopped, the entries are filled in the log files
VSDK/Log is ready to be collected
2.3. Write down short description of the issue (including IP address of the affected devices) and the
timestamp of the issue.
3. Collect the logs
3.1. For BVMS always use BVMS Configuration Collector tool, it will collect also VSDK logs
3.2. For MVS always use BVMS BVMS Configuration Collector tool, it will collect also VSDK logs
3.3. For other VSDK applications copy the content of the directory C:\VSDK\Log.
4. Disable the VSDK logging.
4.1. Delete the registry key or set its value to 0
4.2. Delete the directory C:\VSDK\Log

If BVMS and VRM are installed on the same machine, it is needed to change the TCP Port of the VRM Monitor.
It can be changed by editing the "http-port" key under:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\BoschVideoRecordingManager\Parameters in the Windows registry.
Run regedit.exe on the VRM server
Open HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\Bosch Video Recording in the registry tree
Change to value of the "http-port" key to the port you want the VRM Monitor to listen to

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.
