Fileexport with Microsoft Internet Information Service (IIS) under Windows 2000
- Correct and complete installation and configuration of export
- Install the Microsoft Information Service (IIS) on the desired PC (which is to receive data) from the Windows2000 CD.
In order to do this, navigate through Start - Settings - Control Panel - Add/Remove Programs - Add/Remove Windows Components.
Check "Internet Information Services (IIS)" and click "Details…" All the sub-components must be selected to avoid errors caused by dependencies. Then click "Next >". Restart the PC after installation. Navigate through Start - Settings - Control Panel - Administrative Tools - Internet Services Manager and double click on the computer name to arrive at the "Default FTP Site". Highlight this with the right mouse button and select Properties.
Now you are in the configuration menu of the IIS.
Leave the default settings as they are in the tab FTP Site.
Ensure the following are checked/unchecked in the tab Security Accounts:
- Check Allow Anonymous Connections Uncheck Allow only anonymous connections Enter the Username set as the user for archiving
(e.g. ARCHIVE) Do not enter Password (as in the user configuration)
In the tab Home Directory enter the destination path and the directory, e.g. D:\\Trend. Both read and write access must be activated. Leave UNIX as the directory format.
- Now you have to create the directory on the harddrive (e.g. on D:\\Trend). In the user manager under Users and Passwords create a main user to be used according to Point 2 (e.g. ARCHIVE). Do not enter a password. In the DigiTool project configure the external transfer times and cycles on the last parameter setting page of the trend display or the log under Data transfer.
Under Destination set the IP address of the destination station, the user name and the path. The path is entered here only as \\, not as a destination directory. This was set in the IIS.
Once the operator station is loaded, export starts inaccordance with the configured times and cycles. To run a test, use
If the IIS is not installed and configured, or not installed and configured correctly,it is not possible to export files (logs or trends) from DigiVis.
Files may be exported:
- to a random folder on the DigiVis PC, to an MO drive on the DigiVis PC or to another PC connected to the DigiNet-S network.
- Faulty or incomplete installation and configuration
- Microsoft IIS is not installed on the PC receiving data. Basis directory (destination path) not configured in the Internet Service Manager (IIS). Destination directory not created on the harddrive of the target computer. Configuration of the trend or log in the project in DigiTool is faulty. User rights in Windows 2000 not set up.
