I am using KEPwar Enhanced OPC/DDE Server V4.300.449.0 - U
Drivers: AB Suite: Allen-Bradley DH+ V126.96.36.199 - U
: Allen-Bradley Ethernet V188.8.131.52 - U
1. Can you verify that:
a. FactorySQL is set up as a Windows service (control panel->admin tools->services)
b. The service starts automatically ("startup type" set to "automatic")
c. Data logs automatically without the frontend/system tray application open (reboot without a user logging into the FactorySQL computer and check the database)
- It was STARTED and set to MANUAL. I have changed it to AUTOMATIC. I rebooted and nothing started working until I logged in. Also, we have NOVELL installed on this computer and the login prompt is NOVELL’s not windows. Not sure if this effects anything.
Queston on the SERVICES, when you double click on FPMI or FSQL or MySQL and select the “Log On” tab, it is set to “Local System Account” and the “Allow service to interact with desktop” check box is not checked. Is this correct? And what settings should I use on the “Recovery” tab?
2. The system tray application can provide the same functionality as the service to support legacy OPC server applications. I wouldn't be surprised if the user logging on at 3:01 caused
the system tray app (not the frontend) to start logging data.
So, the “USER” being on ANOTHER seperate computer, connecting to the server, could cause the system tray app to start? Also, I miss spoke. At 3:01 the user clicked on a BUTTON withing the client and accessed a Graph. So, the user was already logged in, but I’m not sure WHEN they logged in, either BEFORE it stopped logging, or WHILE it stopped logging. But in the past, I have come in on a MONDAY and logged in and everything is working fine till I look at a trend and noticed that there is no data for lets say SUNDAY, but it started logging the exact moment I logged into the client.
