Can you use an element name (parent element to be precise) to be the server name of a PI server using substition parameters? I am aware you can use %Server% to get the name of the default PI server but what I want is the following for a PI Point Data Reference within an Element Template:
The elements structure are:
|-> Element1 (AFElement)
|-> Element2 (AFElement)
|-> Sinusoid (AFElement)
Which should translate to \\MyPIServer\Sinusoid and it does but I get the following error for a derived element attribute:
The requested server was not found in the known servers table. %..
The server does actually exist in the KST so have I missed something fundamental? It works with either %Server% or hardcoded servername in the Element Template but I want the template to work based on the AFDatabase structure, so you only need to change the element name to change focus to that server.
