How to configure/connect history server with 800xA?
I ve 800xA connectivity and aspect combined in one server (AS-SC-SERVER). Currently, both servers are running in redundant mode. I ve seperate History server that is to be connected with active server for history and logging. Please guide me how to set up connectivity between History server and Aspect/connectivity server (AS-CS-SERVER). i am referring 2PAA107563-510 History Administration & Configuration. But configuration and connectivity detail is not clearly mentioned in this document. Please guide me any relevent document for history server configuration and connectivity?
Looking forward for valuable support.
Thanking in advance.
If you want to have data buffering on the AS-SC Server then you have to install Embedded collector node on both the nodes. Once you have installed the embedded DCN component, you will have three services i.e. 800xA History SynchService, 800xA History Event Collector & 800xA Event Server created on the Service Structure.
Refer the attached for some of the post installation steps to be done to establish the connectivity between 800xA System & History server.
You can also refer 800xA 6.0-Post_Installation document (2PAA111693*) for more detail about 800xA to History connectivity.
You can contact V C Riju, firstname.lastname@example.org who can support you if you have any more querries.
Are you using 800xA System 5.1 or 6.0 ?
Following are the types of Installation of 800xAHistory version 2.0
1. Node Installation - This Will install only the 800xAHistory related components in a dedicated Windows 2008 R2 64-bit server. And this will be used for long-term storage for log data and Events.
Can't combain with any 800xA Servers.
2. Software Installation - This Will install Data collector components and it fetches log data and Events from Connectivity Servers.
This can be combain with connectivity server except Harmony and Melody Connectivity servers.
Standalone Data collector Server supports 18K logs
Data Collector combained with CS supports 15K logs
Now in your case you have AS+CS server combained, consider if its a workgroup computer the you can install Software components ie., Data Collector components on top of that.
Note : If your AS+CS on Domain then you should install Data collector components in a dedicated server and it should be add as a CS to the existing system
For more detail steps please refer this document Page no.94 onwards 2PAA107280-200_B_800xA_History_2.0_RU2_Installation.pdf
Once the installation completed successful perform the post installation steps mentioned in page no.116 in the document 2PAA107280-200_B_800xA_History_2.0_RU2_Installation.pdf
After the post installation History server should be able to collect the log data and events from 800xA System
Hope this help
