Hi all,


I'm getting error messages when trying to create PI Points from an AF attribute: "Failed to create or update the data reference for Attribute 'AF Values Written' in Element 'PI Analytics Monitoring': [-30000] Generic Warning: See Data for details". Any ideas here? Either i'm hitting some limitations or i just don't see it...

  • For a PI Point that already exists for the resulting PI Point name, the "Create or Update Pi Points" works OK.
  • For a new PI Point, i get the error message above
  • Attribute configstring (all _Configuration_XXX attributes are string values):


\\%@_Configuration_PIServer%\%@_Configuration_TagPrefix%.%Attribute%;ptclassname=classic;pointtype=Float32;exdesc=\\%@_Configuration_AnalyticsServer%\PI Analysis Service\Evaluation Skipped Count;location1=1;location4=%@_Configuration_ScanClass%;pointsource=%@_Configuration_PointSource%
