There are some limitations when using computer cabling redundancy that you need to be aware of before you implement it.
The following functionality limitations apply for Computer Cabling Redundancy:
If you are viewing logged data remotely with the Trend Control and the Ethernet cable that ODBC is currently using is lost then the Trend Control will stop updating the logged data.
If you are logging to a remote database and the Ethernet cable that ODBC is currently using is lost then some data may not be logged.
Non-CIMPLICITY applications might experience interruptions as they fail over to the remaining Ethernet cable.
It is not possible to have two Ethernet cards installed and only use one of them for CIMPLICITY software.
Failure Recovery Limitations
CIMPLICITY Computer Cabling Redundancy will not cover the following failures:
Loss of both network connections.
Rapid, alternating loss of both network connections, where the time period is less than 45 seconds.
Computer cabling redundancy.
