800xA History 2.0 Archiving Server
As say the manual "2PAA107280-200_B_en_System_800xA_History_2.0_RU2_Installation.pdf" in page 112:
"800xA History Archiving Server should be installed on non-redundant Connectivity Server and non Embedded Data Collector Node to perform archive operations"
I would like to ask, what other 800xA nodes are valid for the installation of this server? For example: Aspect Servers, Engineering station, 800xA History Servers,Asset Optimization Server...
In this manual, "800xA History Servers" seem that don't need 800xA Base Software. Is that true?
Some suggestions about layout with this software pack?
thanks in advance for your help
The statement in the manual is as shown. The actual intention is that the Archive Node will be an separate node from all other functions in the 800xA System. This is the exact same Archiving function that is/was part of the IM node, therefore, install it as if it was an IM node, which is installed as a Connectivity Server. This feature has not been certified to be installed in combination with any other 800xA node. The 800xA History Server is NOT an 800xA System node, (no PPA software), therefore cannot have this Archive software installed. The intention of the 800xA History server is that it will/can exist outside the 800xA C/S network outside of a firewall. It is usually part of a separate Domain, (not the 800xA Domain), or part of the customer's IT domain.
Note: There is a plan for a singlenode system with all features, although I have not seen the specifications for this and cannot atest to it including an Archive node.
