    UFL Connector Can't Create Tags




      I am attempting to use the UFL Connector in order to pull down XML data for a weather station, however the connector is continuously showing the error:


      The .ini file for the connector can be found on pastebin.

      The Helix. prefix is coming from the PiPointPrefix that I've modified.


      Obviously given the nature of the error I suspected that it was a security issue, my security setting are as follows:


      There is a service account: IESVE\pi.interfaces

      There is an identity:

      There is a mapping:

      and there is a trust:

      I've also ensured that the PI Interfaces identity has read/write access to the PIPOINT and PIDIS tables.

      Note that I created this trust from the Network Manager Statistics on PI SMT (you can right-click an incoming connection to add a trust). However I noticed that when the connection happens now, the trust is not being applied, see this screen grab from PI SMT:

      The connector service is definitely being run by the correct account:



      Not sure if it's relevant, but on the actual PI AF side of things I've got a database called 'HelixWeather' which the PI Interfaces group has full access to, and on the connector side the server is pointed as the 'HelixWeather' database and the root element. I can see that when the connector runs it automatically creates a 'UFL' element but with no attributes.


      Does anyone have any ideas on how I can solve this?


      Thanks in advance.
