Starting with the AF services installation in 2016R2, the PI Web API and search crawler is installed by default on the AF server box. Unless you choose not to do so of course.
But the CoreSight 2016R2 also installs the PI Web API and does not allow me to choose to use an existing PI Web API installation.
What is the recommended approach here?
Of course i do not want to deploy, configure, manage and run two instances of the PI Web API in most cases.
