Specifying a Node Name and IP address will create a backup of the Primary SCADA Node. The communications protocols used by field devices, and your communications network must support redundant Masters or Redundant Communications from multiple PCs.
This Backup must be different from the name of the primary node (and any other SCADA node in your project).
Node name can be any alphanumeric. It is not recommended to use the underscore (_) in Node name. This will prevent the local VIEWDAQ from downloading graphics or starting the node.
Node name can be up to 15 Characters.
See Node Name for additional information.
