Changing the Historian Server Name Using Registry

By default, custom collector tries to connect to the local Historian server. If you want the collector to connect to a remote Historian server, you must change the HistorianNodeName registry key located at:

  • On a 64 bit machine, this is under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Intellution, Inc.\iHistorian\Services\<CollectorName>\
  • On a 32 bit collector, this is under \HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Intellution, Inc.\iHistorian\Services\<CollectorName>\
