How to Configure the Historian Device (version 23)

  • updated 8 mths ago

Before data can be stored from a device, the historian must be configured to receive data using the new 'Store and Forward' service.

  1. Install the Canary Updater service on the historian machine
  2. Browse to https://localhost:8443 if the Central Admin is local to the historian or https://[CentralAdminMachineName]:8443 and log in.
  3. Select the 'Templates' tab on the left
  4. Select the 'Add Template' button at the top-right of the menu
  5. A browse window will appear allowing the user to search and upload the template of their choice. A template for the historian can be located in C:\Program Files\Canary\Central Administrator\SampleTemplates as well as at the top of this article.
  6. Once the template is uploaded, select the 'Nodes' tab on the left. A grid will display 'All Nodes' visible to the Central Admin. Select the row of the historian machine node to which to apply the template to.
  7. Click the 'Template File' drop-down menu to select the historian template. Any templates that have been uploaded will appear in this list.
  8. Click the 'PUBLISH' button. The Canary Updater Service on the historian machine will download, install, and configure the Canary Services specified in the template file. It may take a few minutes after the template is published for the changes to be applied.
  9. Click the "back arrow" next to 'NODE CONFIGURATION' to check the status of the node. The 'STATE' column will display:
    • UpdatePending
    • UpdateInProgress
    • Configured

                Once in a 'Configured' state, the 'IS ONLINE' column should change                 from 'false' to 'true'.

If troubleshooting is needed, click the 'Logs' tab on the left and select a row to see any messages related to that node. If the node is not online yet, click the 'Central Admin' tab at the top.
