    pi base susbsystem crashing



      I have a issue with a customer Historian Server.

      PI Base Subsystem crashing quite randomly. I mostly happens when:

      1) I open the PI-SMT as an Admin.

      2) when i click on PI-SDK > connection and on server

      3) try to open the Trend on vantagepoint Trend

      4) when i try to check the Mapping setting on PI-SMT


      It used to work without problem but i dont know but IT has been changed smth on my user account.


      Any help will be highly recommended

          The PI Base Subsystem on the PI Data Archive server is crashing when your perform those steps!? Does it start back up successfully whenever your restart it?


          I would first start off by taking a look at the PI Message logs and the Windows Event Viewer (app/system) to see if you can see what error caused the crash. Also, what version of the PI Data Archive and the SDK are you using?

              Hi Gabriel,

              Thanks for the reply.

              Not all the time Service restarts successfully.


              In the message Log, the exact time when the PI Base Subsystem Service crashed the error was "Error Storing Usage Data-[-10733] PINE:RPC Resolver is Off-Line"


              Also, I can see a lot of Errors "PIarcmgr:addevent failed mode: 1 ptid: 147recid: 14624542 status:[-11002] Record Header Data Mismatch event time".

              2) In the Application Logs below are the errors I can see:

              in the System Log, the error I am getting are:

              1) The PI Base Subsystem service terminated unexpectedly.  It has done this 18 time(s).
