Option 1.1.2. Open the Alarm Viewer on a Runtime Server or Viewer

A system administrator can control how Alarm Viewer opens and what alarms it displays on a runtime server or viewer.

Very commonly, the Alarm Viewer that is embedded in a CimView screen starts when the runtime server or viewer is booted.

Also commonly, an operator can click an icon on the Windows desktop to open a pre-configured Alarm Viewer.

In other instances, the Alarm Viewer can be started through the Windows Start menu.

Note: If the user has not logged in a CIMPLICITY® Login dialog box displays and the user must log in before the CimView screen can be enabled.
