I am getting the error above when trying to connect to a remote PI AF / Archive server.  I am able to see all of the PI AF contexts using Windows security, but I am not able to see any of the Archive data using the Windows security.  When in PI System explorer I can switch to PI  security and it all works fine.


I think I have a configuration mismatch somewhere in the security configuration, but I do not know where to look.  I would assume that the PI archive grants rights to the AF machine, but I do not see configuration like this on my server.


Can someone help?
