We installed the search service with the wrong server fqdn and it does not match the certificate, which is to a cname record, not the server name. Is it possible to change that configuration? Maybe re-install?
Can you please check the web.config file for PI Vision? It's located at %PIHOME%\PIVision
You can modify it here and reset IIS. Should work.
Something to add:
Previously, I did try to change that URL to a different machine from the PI Vision machine and couldn't get it to work. This implies that the crawler and PI Vision will still have to be on the same machine.
Was the Web API running on different machine had Self-Signed Certificate or CA Certificate? I remember changing this URL to PI Web API running on different machine and it seemed to work. (can't vouch on my memory )
Definitely self-signed. It was for a test with docker containers since containers can't host the crawler service.
You can run the PI Web API Admin Utility to reconfigure the search service. Refer to resources below:
