Exercise 6 - After watching the Configure Windows Credential Manager for a Workgroup Interface Machine video, configure the PI Interface running on PIINT02 to connect using a mapping. This machine is currently in a workgroup instead of the pischool domain, is currently running under the service account ".\OPCInterface", and is currently connected through a trust that you should disable.


Note that you can map to the same identity you used for PIINT01, but have to make sure that the identity has the appropriate "PIPOINT (r,w)" access to the PI Points (which have a point source of "OPC-PIINT02").


If the interface connects using a mapping instead of a trust, and your 'Tank1', 'Tank2', and 'Tank3' data is being updated, you know you've succeeded.


This activity could be challenging to simulate without using the Cloud Environment, so ask any questions or discuss the principles involved in granting access to the PI System from outside of its domain in the discussion forums.
