Adding a Data Collector to a Historian Server

About this task

Since most collectors, including the iFIX Collector, automatically create an entry for themselves when they connect to the Historian Server for the first time, it is not necessary to add a collector to the server manually if the collector can connect to the server.

To change the destination server for a collector, edit the value for the HistorianNodeName key for the collector in the Windows Registry:
where CollectorName is the name of the collector.
Note: On a 64-bit Windows Operating System, all 32-bit components (such as collectors, client tools, and APIs) related registry keys will be located under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\\Intellution,Inc.\iHistorian\.
