PI System Web API - On a non-domain server

Hello,

 

Is it possible to run PI-WEBAPI on a machine which is in a workgroup rather than a domain.

 

I have a self contained VM with PI etc on it, and added coresight. Coresight 2013 works perfectly.

 

Coresight 2014 puts on PI WebAPI. However when running the index crawler / webapi services under the local coresight service account, the source crawler objects when trying to connect to webapi saying it does not belong to a domain and cannot contact the domain controller.

 

Is there any way of getting this to work in a 2008 R2 workgroup, without having to either make the machine a domain controller or have several VM's, one of which is a domain controller.

 

Simon
