Connection between xMII and RAPID Pharma (Enterprise Historian) per UDS

Hello together,

i have the following problem:

I want to connect to the Enterprise Historian from AUTOMSOFT, RAPID Pharma, how is installed on a SIEMENS PCS7 Runtime Server, with xMII.

For connecting to the Historian i use the UDS Framework 2.5.0.4.

As Datasoucre i took the OPCHDAUDS.CachingDatasource

And the Program ID of RAPID is:HDAServer.RHHDAServer.1

I Use a Windows 2003 Server as xMII Server and Windows 2000 computer for the Historian Database.

In the xMII Server Editor i use a "Default OPCUDS Server" with the right port as set on the UDS.

The connecting between the historian and the UDS works. I´m able to browse through the tags (with the UDS-Aliases). But if i want to build a Template in xMII, the Tags are not displayed on the Editor.

I´m able to choose the Template type and i also see the Data Server and if i select the data server it shows me the different modes. But if i select e.g. "Current" and switch over to the "Tag Query details" i get no information.

Can you help me resolving this problem.

Best regard

Chris

    There is a whitepaper available which gives a step by step guide as to how to connect to OPC servers with xMII using the UDS. Try the link below :

    Christian,

    Could you report back some log messages (from Log Management) after you perform the said steps (Selecting a server - Mode - Tag Query Details).

    Do one more thing - check the Appplication Log of the machine where your UDS is running and let me know what the Application Log says as regards to the UDS that you have configured.

    Thanks

    Christian,

    One more thing, the xMII system and the UDS server need to be in the same <b>domain</b> for connection to be eshtablished. Also, please check for <b>firewalls</b> that can be blocking the connections as well as the <b>Event Viewer Logs</b> as mentioned in the whitepaper and post the findings here ?

    Hi Abesh,

    thank you for your help.

    I´ve done all steps in the correct way like the whitepaper explain befor and now again, with the same result: It´s not possible to see the tags in the Template Editor.

    Every Time i select a new TAG template type i get the message (onthe JAVA Console)

    "ERROR-An invalid Server was used (Illuminator Service)"

    But the server still running and the connectionstatus say that the server is online.

    Then when i select the server and the mode and switch to "TAG QUERY Details" the JAVA Console shows this error message:

    "ERROR-Error occurred while processing data stream, connection refused:connect"

    I hope you can help me.

    Thanks a lot.

    Hi everybody,

    the problem is fixed.

    But i do not really know what´s happen! The only thing i made, was to install a instance of RAPID on the xMII Server and also the API for the iHistorian UDS connector.

    Strange, but it works!

    Anyway, thanks to you all trying to help!

    Greetings

    Christian

    The summary of this thread is, that if you have special historians, you need to install a type of SDK or ODBC Driver on the xMII Server to connect probably.
