    Setting up a Dev PI Server

    JamesIggulden

      Hello,

       

      I was hoping to setup a PI server instance so I can test connectivity through the PI JDBC driver.

       

      I assumed that I would be able to do something like the following:

      1 install SQL server

      2 install PI Data Archiver Server

      3 install PI AF server

      4 create a dummy database (hopefully using some provided scripts/imports)

       

      I've managed to do 1.

      Re 2 + 3 I can see that in the past the following were available:

      • PI Data Archive (PI Server) 2015 R2 Install Kit
      • PI Asset Framework (AF) Server 2015 Install R2 Kit
      • However, neither of these are available to download.

       

      Any help regarding 4 also gratefully apreciated!

       

      Thanks!

      James

          Hello James,

           

          Only paid members are able to download PI Data Archive and PI AF Server install kits.

           

          The easier option to create a sample database is to import an XML file. Then you won’t need to create/modify any script or program. One possible option is the NuGreen database which could downloaded here.

           

          We can provide a code snippet to create a sample database programmatically using PI AF SDK if you want to.

           

          Hope it helps!
