You can add PI AF Servers to ProcessBook from File > PI Systems. The (...) button launches the Systems dialog where you can connect to other PI AF servers.
Please let me know if you have any questions about this.
You will have to select an AF Server first and then the database should show. In PI Processbook, select File>PI Systems and from here, click on the three dots that from the Asset Server drop box. The PI AF Servers screen should pop up and you can add the AF Asset server.
Do you wish to script this out our have the users perform steps similar to the above?
thanks for the responses.
Unfortunately there are no entries to select any AF Server or database from.
(I would have posted a screenshot but for some reason that doesn't seem to work...)
When installing ProcessBook all entries regarding AF were left empty.
This is what I would like to fix.
There is no need to do this user by user as our system administrator will deal with the implementation details on all client machines.
You will have to select "Add Asset Server" from the PI AF Servers dialog (the last one I navigated you to) and type in the name of the AF Server.
Request you to check with you admin if client installation is a package with silent installation then during installation AF server can be set in silient.ini file which configures default AF server.

I found the Problem is a compatibility issue of our very old ProcessBook version against the rather new version of our AF Server (v188.8.131.5259).
I tried to manually configure the connection the our AF Server via File -> PI-Systems... then hitting the button between "..." and "Connect". (quite close @ Dan, Javin )
When I entered the AF Servers IP adress into the host field and trying to connect via "Connect" button the following error popped up:
Unexpected Server Error: 'The Client Version '2.1' is incompatible with this Version of the PI AF Server '184.108.40.20659'. Client must be 2010 R2 (2.3) or later.'.
Use Event Viewer to see the AF Service log file for more Information.
The Client Version 2.1 refers to the ..\PIPC\AF\AFExplorer.exe (which is PI System Explorer).
Therefore I will put some effort into updating our client machines.
