Data Collection auto start. [SMC WIRE FABRICAT ORS]

Jessee,

In fact, we also use 4 of those workstations a DNC interface PC to load
programs to our CNC machines. It's not at all unusual to have those
workstations up for several weeks at a time without rebooting. One is
NT4.0, four are Windows 2000, and two are Windows XP Pro.

I envy you.

For me that's like hearing Windows 95 works absolutely perfect.

I don't know, for some reason we always had troubles.

Maybe its just a safety precaution. Maybe its for another reason all
together.

Patrick,

We are on V4 and have been running 7 data collection terminals with the same
user name and password for about 4 1/2 years with no trouble at all.

Patrick:

I believe why its recommended (also why we use different UserIDs for each of
our Data Collection Terminals) is the fact that in older versions of Vantage
(also maybe in newer versions as well), if a terminal locks up, ALL Data
collection terminals are down and cannot be used until this terminal has
been booted off the progress server.

So, if shop1 locks theirs then shop2 can still function without problems.

That's my understanding anyways and when we used to use only one UserID this
would happen to us all the time. BIG pain in the butt. However, I wasn't
aware that Epicor Technical Support recommended this method ....

So that's my guess why they recommend this. I could be wrong though.

What's the advantage of each having their own login, I switch from this to
one so when shop users screwed around with settings I only had one users to

I was also told by Tech support that I should copy the plant floor
vtg file to seperate files for each DC Machine
AKA dc1.vtg, dc2.vtg etc etc
Then on each vtg file modify it so they are each using their own log
in into vantage
So far so good

[Non-text portions of this message have been removed]
Its not the "Vantage User ID" that is the concern, it is the VTG file
itself. For some reason when you start Vantage (or Data Collection) the
program opens these files (also the VANTAGE.INI) in write mode. Its only
for a split second, but if a workstation locks up with the file in write
mode, and since only one person can be writing at a time, your network (not
Vantage) is preventing you from logging in. (it has to be a speed issue
because the biggest problem computers are also the slowest). You can give
each user their own VTG and INI file on their home directory and set it up
to use these, then you can avoid the huge network file sharing lock issue.

Also I'm not certain, but doesn't Vantage only allow you to have one data
collection UserID? If this is the case and you are using different UserID's
on each data collection terminal then you would be using full Vantage
licenses for Data Collection.

What's the advantage of each having their own login, I switch from this to
one so when shop users screwed around with settings I only had one users to
fix and it keeps all stations uniform.

I was also told by Tech support that I should copy the plant floor
vtg file to seperate files for each DC Machine
AKA dc1.vtg, dc2.vtg etc etc
Then on each vtg file modify it so they are each using their own log
in into vantage
So far so good
