Within 800xA History RU2 can DataDirect be used only in CS or can it also be used within History Server?
We have 800xA History RU2 installed on a History Server. According to the manual 2PAA107563-200_B_en_System_800xA_History_2.0_Administration_and_Configuration on page 103 to 107 we can use DataDirect for retrieval and visualizing the numeric and
event data. This is a quick and easy way not only to view the history data, but also to
generate reports for meaningful insight into the plant data. This includes trend
displays, shift, daily, or weekly reports, alarm analysis etc.
In the Figures we can see 800xA structures which we think implies that DataDirect is being used within 800xA. But our question is whether it is able to use datadirect within History Server itself without a client/server connection to the 800xA System. We would like to create reports with data within the History Server inside History Server itself.
