Data Direct Login
I am having 5.1 revC with 800m Controller.
Trying to configure reports, but unable to login DATA Direct.
Configuration: redundant ASCS servers
Donot have IM server.
Username used: aid
host : localhost
error: unable to connect host localhost
uninstalled and installed Data direct and excel again
datadirect is added in excel as add-in (service account as well as installer account)
still not able to login data direct.
process values and history values are getting reflected through data direct.
but unable to login
is there anything I m missing

Login is only possible with IM server and ABB Display Services installed and a free EXCEL_DA license seat. This will enable the InformIT functions like ABBSQL, PDL messages, etc
Without IM you are limited to the IndustrialIT functions (no license/login required): ABBGetOPCDA, ABBGetOPCHDA and ABBAERetrieval.
All functions are described in the IM Data Access and Reports Users Guide.
What functionality are you missing since you are trying to login?
Do you really need the InformIT functions? Then you need an IM as well to service those.
