grounding electrode.
12. Grounding or Polarization - This unit may be
equipped with a polarized alternating current line
plug (a plug with one blade wider than the other).
This safety feature allows the plug to fit into the
power outlet in only one way. If unable to insert the
plug fully into the outlet, try reversing the plug. If the
plug still fails to fit, contact an electrician to arrange
replacement of the obsolete outlet. Do not defeat the
safety purpose of the polarized plug.
Alternately, this unit may be equipped with a
3-wire grounding plug (a plug with a third pin, for
grounding). This safety feature allows the plug to fit
into a grounding power outlet only. If unable to insert
the plug into the outlet, contact an electrician to
arrange replacement of the obsolete outlet. Do not
defeat the safety purpose of the grounding plug.
13. Lightning - For added protection during a lightning
storm, or when this unit is left unattended and unused
for long periods of time, unplug the unit from the

PRODUCT INTRODUCTION
DVAS Series Digital Video Array is a high speed, fault
tolerant RAID subsystem design. It uses a mid-plane
design to eliminate the problems associated with cable
interconnects. Unlike conventional RAID products, the
DVAS Series disk array uses ATA disk drives to store
RAID data, rather than high cost SCSI or Fiber Channel
disks. Its advanced electronic soft-start technology makes
hot-swappable ATA drives very reliable.

from each block of the array.
Dependant on disk capacity, it can take up to six hours
to create a RAID Set.
6.7
Adding and Mapping a Volume
NOTE: It is recommended to use the Quick
Configuration page for adding and mapping volumes.
This section may be used for future DVRs requiring
more sophisticated volume mapping.
New arrays must be partitioned, via ADD VOLUME.
A maximum of 16 volumes can be created (with a
maximum of eight volumes per channel). Once a
volume has been created, it must be mapped to a
LUN or LUNs, and Host Channel or Channels.
To create a volume, click RAID, at the left-hand side
of the main page, then select the Add Volume tab.
Figure 15 Creating Volume
Enter the name for the new volume to define the
friendly name of the volume, for use in the GUI.
Enter the size of the new volume in
Megabytes (MB). You may create one volume that
is the maximum size of the array, or a number of
volumes. The remaining free space on the array is
shown at the bottom of the screen.
Bosch Security Systems | 20 January 2004
Reserve an optional free space area at the
beginning of the new volume for future expansion
of a previous volume. A volume can only be
expanded in this way. Data on a volume must be
sequential; it is not possible to add data on an array
unless it directly follows the volume.
Select logical unit number (LUN) for new volume
on host 0/1. Use the drop down menu to define the
LUN for each volume, on one or both Host Channels.
A LUN can only be accessed by one DVR.
To confirm your choices, select the Add Volume tab. To
create more than one array, enter this page again using
the left-hand menu.
Once the volumes have been created and mapped,
restart the computer to access the DVAS Series disk
array.

Network Statistics
This page provides information about the network
link. If you are having problems with the network, this
page may be helpful.
7.10 Bad Blocks
Bad blocks are sections of the disk that data can no
longer be read from or written to. A DVAS array
automatically remaps single bad blocks to a spare
blocks portion of the disk when using a parityprotected RAID level. However, if two bad blocks are
discovered at once, that block of data is lost. This is
most likely to happen during a rebuild, or when one
disk is missing and another disk has a media error. In
general, bad blocks are unlikely to occur.
This page shows the number of bad blocks for each
drive. If there are bad blocks present, their location
can be viewed by clicking Details (in the right-hand
column).

8.1
Add Array
To create RAID arrays, from the Add Array tab, select
the drive(s) to be used by clicking the appropriate
check box(es). Arrays can only be built when there are
at least three disks. Disks allocated as spares cannot be
used without first being deleted.
Figure 28 Configuring an Array
Select RAID Level
Allows selection of the RAID level for the array.
Currently, RAID 0, 4, and 5 are available. Most server
applications will work best with RAID 5. RAID 4 is
suitable for lots of sequential transactions, but is not
the ideal choice for server environments. RAID 0 is
for users who need speed, not redundancy.
Select Stripe Size
Stripe size for the array designates the amount of data
written to a single disk, before moving on to the next.
Sequential access benefits from a smaller stripe size,
wheras random access benefits from a larger stripe
size. Bosch DVRs require 64KB.
Bosch Security Systems | 20 January 2004
Click Create RAID Set to continue. The RAID set
will start to build. Array construction can take several
hours to complete. Monitor the progress via the

The DVAS Series disk array has the capability of
sending an e-mail to a specified e-mail address, in the
event of a warning or error condition.
Network IP address change dictated by a
DHCP server (you need to use a new network
address to access the Web Monitor)
Error conditions denote events that significantly reduce
the security of the system. Examples are:
• Failure of a data disk
•
Loss of data due to errors on matching parts of
two or more disks
•
Failure of a power supply
If the DVAS Series disk array is connected to a switch,
you may use full duplex. Half duplex will work
properly with hubs and switches, but may run a little
slower. Only use 100Megabits if you are sure you have
100Megabits networking. If unsure about your
network, use Fixed to 10Megabits Half Duplex.

Verify that the system is responding.
Verify that the IP address is saved, and you can connect to the DVAS. The best way to establish communication with the DVAS
Series disk array is by using a ping utility. Different operating systems have different ping utilities, but they are all very similar.
Microsoft® will be used for the purpose of this guide.
Open a DOS window and retreat to the root level of the C drive (or the drive containing the Operating System). To do this, type
the following: cd \
C:/> ping 192.1.168.225
(Replace the above IP address with that of the DVAS Series disk array.)
If the ping is successful, a response similar to the one below will be generated.

If you have a successful reply, but cannot access the home page, consult technical support.
If no reply is returned, verify that the IP address is correct. If using DHCP, verify that DHCP has allocated an address to the unit.
When using the menus I am
prompted to provide a user
name and password.
•
This indicates that security is turned on. The user name ADMIN and password PASSWORD (both uppercase) permits access to
any page, unless the password has been changed.
The default user name and
password are not responding.
•
The login is case sensitive; both username and password are in UPPERCASE. If still unable to login, the user name and
password may have been changed from the factory settings. To cancel this, the unit must be returned to its factory settings.
Restoring factory settings will not harm your data.
•
To restore the factory settings, follow the instructions below. If only resetting the IP address, skip Steps 8 and 9.
1. Make a note of the product’s serial number, as it will be needed later.
2. Turn off the system.
3. Turn power back on while depressing the alarm silence button for more than ten seconds, then release.
4. Depress the button again.
5. The exclamation light should now flash red.
6. Release the button for two seconds and depress it again.
7. After a few seconds the power light will flash red.
8. Release the button for two seconds and depress it again.
9. After a few seconds, the fan light will flash red.
10. Release the button and cycle power to the unit.
The above steps reset DVAS Series disk array to Gleaning mode, which means that an IP address can be set manually.
1. To set an IP address, access a command line, either in a DOS or UNIX compatible computer that is connected to the same
network as the DVAS Series disk array.
2. You must first add an entry to the ARP (Address Resolution Protocol) table of this computer. The entry should be the desired
IP address of the DVAS Series disk array, followed by the MAC address (serial number).
Example: If the MAC address of the DVAS is 00:04:02:D0:00:FD, and the required IP address is 192.168.1.201, you would
type the following at either a DOS prompt, or a UNIX console: arp -s 192.168.1.201 00-04-02-d0-00-fd
arp /a
3. The current ARP table will be displayed. Ensure that the DVAS has been added. Ping the IP address you have specified, as
in: ping 192.168.1.201
4. When the DVAS Series disk array receives the first packet, it will set the IP address that it has received. This means that the
first few packets should timeout. It may take up to thirty seconds for the IP address to be saved. It is not necessary to reboot
the DVAS for the IP address to take effect.
NOTE: This only saves the IP address, not other important settings such as the subnet mask, gateway, and DNS server
addresses. It is important to alter these settings via the GUI interface.
The passwords and security should now be set to the default.

Start-up Problems
Problem
The system beeps at power
up.
Solution
•
•
LED/Icon
Beeping does not mean that the unit is broken. If e-mail is enabled, check the inbox. This will likely provide a clear explanation of
the problem.
Current problems can also be found via the GUI interface; click the red X in top right-hand corner of the home page, or check the
lights on the unit.
Indication
Power Icon
•
•
Normally Green.
If Red, verify that both power supplies have power, and are switched on. If a power supply has failed, the LED on the power
supply will not be illuminated, although the blower should still be powered from the surviving power supply.
Fan LED
•
•
Normally Green.
If Red, one or more blowers have failed. There are two blowers in the rear of the unit. The two power supplies have embedded
blowers. It is possible for the blower to fail, and the power supply continues to work. This will not be apparent by looking at the
LED. You can Determine if the blower has failed via the web GUI.
Exclaimation Mark LED
•
•
Normally Green.
If Red, the RAID controller has failed, or has a problem. This does not necessarily mean that the controller must be replaced. This
LED may indicate other faults, such as missing disks or battery errors. Use the web interface to discover the exact nature of the
problem.
Disk Drive LEDs
•
•
During activity, the Green LED(s) will flicker (on the front panel, corresponding to the disk drive(s).
If a failure occurs, the LED in the shape of an exclamation mark will illuminate in Amber.
Resolving Problems
The Bosch Interface indicates
that a disk has failed, and my
data is still online.
•
A power supply has failed, but
the system is still operational.
•
Do not remove the faulty power supply! If a power supply fails, the surviving power supply will continue to power the blower in the
failed power supply. Removing a power supply drastically reduces airflow in the chassis. Contact your dealer regarding a
replacement power supply (ACCPS). Only remove the failed power supply when the replacement arrives.
The RAID controller has failed.
•
If a RAID controller fails, the data is inaccessible. Your data is safe on the disks until a replacement controller arrives. Data in write
cache will be lost if a controller fails.
Leave the controller in place.
•
•
Determine which disk has failed by its Amber exclamation mark on the front LED panel. Extract the faulty disk and insert a
blanking panel into its slot.
Contact the dealer to obtain a replacement as soon as possible, as the array may be in a critical state. When the replacement
module arrives, verify that no damage has occurred during transit. Insert the new disk into the empty slot. The DVAS Series disk
array will detect the new disk, and rebuild to it if the array is critical. If you already had a spare disk, the DVAS Series disk array
will assign the new disk as a spare too.
Contact your dealer for assistance with other inquiries.

DVAS | Instruction Manual | Firmware Update

Firmware Update Instructions
The DVAS Series disk array is controlled by firmware
that resides in the controller flash memory (ROM).
Upgrades to provide improved operation capabilities
may be issued by Bosch from time to time, in the form
of e-mail or similar means.
The firmware file is downloaded to the DVAS Series
disk array via FTP (file transfer protocol), and can be
downloaded from any computer that supports FTP, on
the same network as the DVAS Series disk array.
Microsoft Windows® 98/NT/2000 and Unix systems,
for example, support FTP, which is conventionally
activated from a command line (MS-DOS window in
NT systems). Due to the DVAS Series disk array FTP
restrictions, we recommend this method be used for
security and memory space reasons.
Downloading does not affect the operation of the
DVAS Series disk array, and can be carried out at any
convenient time during system operation. It is
recommended that the host system be shut down to
cease RAID array read/write activity. A DVAS Series
disk array restart is required to activate the new
firmware. Verify the firmware version by accessing the
Information MENU > HARDWARE, via the web user
interface.
Before actually beginning the firmware update, READ
the following carefully. If these instructions are not
followed, the DVAS Series disk array may be rendered
unusable and the RAID array will not be available to
the host computer system.
DO NOT switch the DVAS Series disk array off
during a firmware update process. This will likely
render the DVAS Series disk array unusable.
DO NOT switch the DVAS Series disk array off until
the Microcode Updated OK message is posted at the top
of the event log. If the web interface is not accessible,
wait at least ten minutes before switching the DVAS
Series disk array off.
Here are some example messages from the controller’s
event log BEFORE the firmware update completes.
0036: 0055R, 0000-00:10:10: Microcode Updated OK
0037: 0055R, 0000-00:08:08: Microcode extents, Start
Addr 0x10000, End Addr 0x148938
0038: 0055R, 0000-00:08:08: Microcode S-record file
verified OK
0039: 0055R, 0000-00:08:05: Starting microcode
update
Remember - DO NOT switch the DVAS Series disk
array off until Microcode Updated OK appears in the
event log shown above. The controller event log is
stored on disk, so at least one disk must be installed in
the DVAS Series disk array for the firmware update to
proceed.
Controller Update Procedure
To begin the controller firmware update, first copy the
new firmware file from Bosch, onto the machine where
you intend to run FTP.
1. In a command line window, go to the directory
(folder) where the firmware resides, and type:
ftp <IP address>
When prompted for a user name, type ADMIN
in upper case. The password is required (if not
changed, the default password is PASSWORD).
2. Now type:
If unsure about the state of the firmware update, wait
at least ten minutes (from the start of sending the new
firmware), for the update to complete.
Wait five minutes before accessing the event log. Do
not continually click the event log link, as it is a large
web page that will slow down the firmware update
process. It is recommended that you access the event
log every 30 seconds or so after the initial five
minutes.
Bosch Security Systems | 20 January 2004
put <filename>
where the filename is the name of the update file
supplied by Bosch.
You may have to change the local directory from within
FTP if you are not already in the directory of the new
firmware file. To do this, use a command such as:
lcd <newfirmwarefilepath>
(local change directory to the location of the new
firmware file).
DVAS | Instruction Manual | Firmware Update
3. The download process includes storing the data
on the DVAS Series disk array, and will take
five to ten minutes. When the update has
finished, a message Transfer OK. firmware update
successful should appear.
4. Confirm that the update has succeeded by
entering the Web Monitor, and selecting the
Event Log page in user mode. The message,
Microcode Updated OK should be visible near the
top of the log.
5. The new firmware will take effect at the next
DVAS Series disk array power up.
Windows 98 timeout
If this procedure is followed on Windows 98 systems
(and possibly other systems), the FTP process in
Windows 98 will time out during Step 3. This occurs
after all data has been transferred to the DVAS Series
disk array, but before the storage process (flash update)
is complete. In this case, the Transfer OK message will
not appear, although the download should have
completed successfully.
After at least five minutes from the start of Step 2,
check the log to ensure that the update has been
successful. If so, the update will take effect at the next
restart (Step 5).

Servicing Removable Components
Power Supply Unit (PSU)
Insertion
Pull the handle of the PSU so it is at 90° to the main
PSU unit. Line up the PSU with the guide rails on the
DVAS. Insert the PSU gently until it comes to a halt,
then close the handle and secure it in place with the
screw (included).
Removal
Turn off the power switch. Disconnect the power cord,
loosening the cable clamp if necessary. Loosen the
screw on the power supply by turning it counterclockwise. Pull out the handle of the PSU so that is 90°
to the chassis. While supporting the weight of the PSU,
use the handle to pull the power supply free from the
chassis.
If your DVAS has the dual redundant power supply
option, a faulty power supply may be removed and
replaced while the unit is operational. Only remove a
power supply from a working unit if it is faulty and a
replacement is on-site. Removing a PSU when no
replacement is immediately available may result in
overheating and shutdown. Ensure that the correct
PSU is removed; the faulty power supply will not have
a green status LED illuminated on its rear panel.
RAID Controller
Insertion
A RAID controller should not be inserted while the
unit is powered on. If exchanging a faulty RAID
controller, schedule a shutdown before replacing it.
Insert the RAID controller into its slot, ensuring that
the metal runners line up with the internal guides.
Firmly push the RAID controller fully into the chassis
until the side clips click into place.
Removal
Do not remove a faulty controller while power is on;
power must be disconnected.
Push the side clips securing the controller inwards
(toward each other). While supporting the weight of
the unit, use the handles to pull the controller free
from the unit.
Bosch Security Systems | 20 January 2004
Hard Drive Assemblies
Disk drives are sensitive to static electricity and
physical shock. Observe proper ESD
precautions and handle with care.
Insertion
Line the disk carrier up to an available disk slot. Be
sure the handle is open, and the carrier push button is
toward the bottom of the chassis. Push the disk carrier
in until it is fully inserted. Close the handle and push
in the carrier button to secure it in place.
Removal
Removing a disk while in operation within a RAID set
will cause the RAID set to degrade. Only remove a
disk which has been marked as bad by the GUI, with
an Amber LED illuminated beneath it. To remove a
disk, push the button on the disk carrier to release the
handle. Gently pull the bottom of the handle toward
you and wait ten seconds for the disk to stop spinning.
Continue sliding the disk out of the chassis.
