When I try to connect to the PI server via PI Oledb Console, it is thowing the error "[PI SDK] Specified Time is invalid".
Do anyone have solution?
Thanks and Regards,
This error message means that the connection to the PI server failed, could be because of network or authentication issues. Perhaps you can start by checking for network issues. Does ping to the PI server machine or telnet to the PI server on port 5450 works? Are you running the PI OLEDB console on the same machine as the PI server?
As for authentication issues, how did you setup the security settings for the PI server? Did you setup trust for the machine that you are using or are you using Windows Integrated Security here? A good place to check for authentication error would be the PI Message Log from the PI server and see how did the PI server handle the connection.
For this issue you can also contact our Techsupport Team, who will be able to assist you on this promptly =)
We recently experienced the same problem here at Amitec, and we were having problems with the time servers in the domain. Run a command prompt and type "net time" on both your pc (the pi client) and the server (pi server) to see if they match.
I'm not 100 % sure that the solution to our time problem also fixed the PI SDK-error - our hw guys did talk about a reinstall/upgrade of the pi server itself, but I'm not sure if the did that.
I had that exact same error, and it had to do with authentication. You should find the source in the PI Message log like Han said.
Proberbly a misconfigured trust
Nick, would you be so kind as to reply to us if the issue is solved, and how it was solved?
This would also be a good future reference for users that are having the same issue, and using the search on vCampus to find a solution.
Issue is resolved. Actually the problem was becase the necessary PI services weren't running and also problem with my anti-virus. I had to manually start all the services as mentioned in the PI system Management Esstential Skills - I and also configure my anti-virus to allow the executables.
Glad you got it sorted out!
I actually got the error message myself again today, while experimenting with the new PI Server Security settings. I've set up a PI Identity where I've mapped my AD user so that I can have read access (implicitly via PIWorld). But when removing myself from that PI Identity, I get the 'Specified time is invalid message'.
Don't know why, but I'd prefer a more user friendly message saying something like 'Authentication issue - unable to connect to PI Server'.
Asle Frantzen @ AmitecI'd prefer a more user friendly message saying something like 'Authentication issue - unable to connect to PI Server'.
