Use one of the following configuration options:

  • The ADS/ADX is the Site Director and the ADS repository.

  • The ADX is split configuration that supports the web or application server computer is the site director, and the database server computer is the repository.

Note: Even though the database server computer hosts the Repository, each network engine is configured to have its repository entry directed to the ADX web/application server computer. The ADX web/application server accepts the data from the network engine and then writes the data to the repository on the database server computer. A network engine and the database server computer never communicate directly.
  1. Open the ADS object.
  2. Set the objects and devices according to Table 1.
Note: Each ADS/ADX that is configured as a repository has the capability to forward the historical data (trend samples and alarm/event messages) received from a network engine to other ADS/ADX repositories as defined in the Repository Storage (list) in its device object. The ADS/ADX does not forward Audit Trails.
