Important: The ADS Repository attribute in the engine or server determines where the device sends historical information. The Default ADS Repository attribute in the Site object defines where historical data is stored. By default, these repository attributes are blank. Be sure to enter the address or name of your repository device (typically the Site Director) in these attributes to ensure that you do not lose historical data. For the Site Director itself, leave the ADS Repository attribute blank if the Site Director also serves as the repository. The Default ADS Repository attribute defines the location of the ADS repository for all devices on the site that do not have the ADS Repository attribute defined on their own. The ADS Repository attribute, once defined on an NAE, overwrites the Default ADS Repository attribute of the site for that NAE.

A repository provides long-term storage for historical data. Typically, the Server configured as the Site Director also provides the individual repositories for trend data, event messages, audit messages, annotations, reporting, and spaces authorization data. Individual repositories may reside in the SQL Server database. For a split ADX, the repositories are on the database server where the SQL Server software is installed. You can install a split ADX where the database server computer stores all historical data. On an OAS, the amount of historical data retained in its repositories (and therefore available to Metasys UI) is affected by the Metasys Historical Data Add-on license.

Note: The ADS-Lite cannot be a Site Director for other ADS, ADX, or OAS servers.

The following table lists the ADS/ADX/OAS repositories, the corresponding online Metasys SMP Help (LIT-1201793) or Metasys UI Help (LIT-12011953) topic, and the corresponding file name. The next sections describe the repositories in more detail and suggest ways to optimize the repositories.
