Step 1. Select Archive Features during Historian Installation


You must install Historian Server and Historian Viewer on all CIMPLICITY machines before configuring a project to log to the Historian. Install the following components on every node/machine:

  • Historian Client Tools

  • OLE DB

  • User API

  1. The servers must have OPC Collectors installed for the OPC Interface and the OPC A&E Interface. If both options are used, both collectors must be installed.

To enable the archiving features select Install Alarms & Events and specify SQL Server database details during installation.

Note: To successfully create Historian Alarm and Event database during installation, you must ensure that SQL Server agent is in running state.

Result: The selected Historian archive features will enable Historian to store CIMPLICITY alarm and event data.
