You may configure additional data sources on your computer, or customize the data sources that are configured by CIMPLICITY installation. However, you must observe the following restrictions:
Use only supported ODBC drivers. Other drivers may not meet the data requirements of CIMPLICITY software.
Because CIMPLICITY runs as a service, it must use system data sources.
Remember that data sources are not part of your CIMPLICITY project, and will not automatically follow a project that is taken to a different node.
Be aware of any driver-specific restrictions (below) which may apply.
Note: If you want to trend Logged or Logged Point data that is stored in a remote database, you must add a custom data source to each Viewer.
