Is there any way to change pi server name in attribute(template based) on fly if pi server changes, not considering using utility like af update or reset template?
The only two ways I'm aware of is using:
1) PI System Explorer
What's your use case? Why do you want to change the PI Data Archive name of attributes with a PI Point DR on the fly?
In general we recommend to never hardcore the PI Data Archive name but instead point it to an attribute value that can be set your PI Data Archive name. This allow to quickly change the server it points at.
This is the method all our Asset Based Example kits use.
Otherwise, you can always change the PI Data Archive name using PI Builder (Excel), PI System Explorer (AF Client), or the AF Update Plug-in Configurations utility
How often, and why do you need to change the Data Archive name?
Hope this helps,
