How to set up DataDirect in History Server with 800xA History RU2
We have a History Server with 800xA History RU2 which is in a network with one CS and one AS and both have 800xA 5.1 Rev D. I can use DataDirect on both of them without typing in the user/password/Host. But when I want to use DataDirect within History Server I get this screen as shown in the file. I have tried using
But it said could not find localhost. I tried this http://www402.abbext.com/Log-DataDire... but it didn't work either.
DataDirect's ABBGetOPCDA/ABBGetOPCHDA/ABBAERetrieval functions only work on nodes that are part of the 800xA system (ie has been added via Config Wizard's Add Server/Client function and are listed as server or client in the Node Administration Structure). Neither license nor login is needed.
The remaining functions such as ABBSql/ABBGetHistory/etc are dependant on an IM server with full install of ABB InformIT Display Services, a free EXCEL_DA license seat and an account / password created with the Display Server's user management tools.
I suspect the 800xA History server to belong to the later group.
