Parameters > Citect.ini File Parameters > Alarm Parameters > [Alarm]SavePrimary


The path to the primary save file. CitectSCADA uses two save files, usually one for each of the two Alarms Servers. The SavePrimary path is the directory where this Alarms Server will create its save file. When restoring the file, the most recent (of the Primary and Secondary) save files will be used.

To enable the Alarm save file, you must set the save period in the [Alarm]SavePeriod parameter. If you have redundant Alarms servers, you should also set up the [Alarm]SaveSecondary parameter.

Note: This parameter is modified by the Computer Setup Wizard as well as the Computer Setup Editor.

Allowable Values: Any valid directory

Default Value: The directory specified in [CtEdit]Run.
