I'm currently moving DCS vendors and so needed to create new PI OPC interface clients for the new DCS. I want to move tags from the old interfaces to the new interfaces (different point sources, scan classes, and interface ID's) but not sure what the best way to do it is. I have done it previously but tags did not read until I edited the tag configuration (scan on to off back on, but even that didn't work sometimes).
I have a feeling if I edit tag configuration (point source for example) that the old interface does not pick this up and the buffer subsystem doesn't "release" the tag for the new interface to start data collection (I'm probably way off track but its the only thing that seems to make sense). Without stopping the old interface how do I move tags from one interface to another??
