800xA 4.1 ABBDataDirect License error
In single node system ASCS installed inform IT and datadirect, 800xA SV4.1 when I open excel sheet and selecting for login with username : aid, passowrd aid, localhost it says no licenses were installed... can anybody helps how to resolve this issue.
Thanks in advance
first of all the 800xA license server-client must be working to obtain a license.
You can also have problems when logging in as Remote Desktop.
Login with aid,aid,localhost is as far as I know only possible when using an Information manager (localhost=working on the IM, otherwise the comuter name of the IM). All DataDirect commands do not need a prior login.
DataDirect has two sets of functions.
1) The IndustrialIT functions
ABBGetOPCDA(), ABBGetOPCHDA() and ABBAERetrieval()
* No login required = no license required, but Excel must run on a 800xA server or client node.
2) The InformIT functions:
ABBSql(), ABBPDLxxx(), etc
* Login is required! EXCEL_DA license seat required in CLS. Excel does not need to run on an 800xA node. Speak with your regional ABB sales representative about obtaining a license.
