Dynamically Setting Processbook Default Server

Discussion created by jnissisolutions on Apr 21, 2010

I asked this question to support, but wasn't convinced by the answer. 

 

I have a situation where I would like to have 3 servers in place... let's call them DEV, TEST and PRODUCTION.  In these servers I want to carry the same tags with the same tagnames.  I would like to develop a batch file that opens PROCESSBOOK based on the server that I would like to work with.  I do not want to get the servers mixed up for obvious reasons.  Also, I would like the PDIs that I develop to be GENERIC so that they could use the same TAG names within Datasets regardless of which server I am pointing at. 

 

Is there a way within a batch file to set the default server prior to opening up PROCESSBOOK?

 

I understand the benefit that ProcessBook has in pulling from mutliple servers into one .PDI view.  In this circumstance, I would like to be able to do the opposite of that.  Point at different servers using the same tag set.

 

Thanks,

 

Dan
