CHAPTER 1
Overview
FactoryTalk® Historian Site Edition (SE) provides the capability to collect, store, analyze,
and visualize data using a powerful engine and a set of reporting tools such as time-series
trends, bar charts, piecharts, pareto and tabular trends, and a method of generating reports
using Microsoft Excel. It also uses compressed-storage data algorithms to contain a vast
amount of data in a small format.
FactoryTalk Historian SE is closely integrated with FactoryTalk Services Platform and the
following Rockwell Automation applications:
„
FactoryTalk Live Data (FTLD): A direct data interface to FTLD delivers native
FTLD data directly to FactoryTalk Historian SE without requiring intermediate
interfaces and standards such as OPC.
„
FactoryTalk Directory: FactoryTalk Historian SE uses FactoryTalk Directory to look
up data points for configuring points to historize. The FactoryTalk Directory is also
used for auto-discovering controller data sources and tags in the initial configuration
process.
„
FactoryTalk Security: By integrating FactoryTalk Historian SE with FactoryTalk
Security, all users and user groups can be maintained centrally, and a single sign-on is
fully supported.
„
FactoryTalk Activation: FactoryTalk Historian SE is activated by Rockwell
Automation's central licensing system based on the FactoryTalk Activation Server.
„
FactoryTalk Diagnostics: Because of FactoryTalk Historian SE's close integration
with FactoryTalk Diagnostics, all system and diagnostics messages from FactoryTalk
Historian SE are centrally stored and maintained in the FactoryTalk Diagnostics
database.
„
FactoryTalk Audit: All FactoryTalk Historian SE Server auditing messages are
stored and available in the FactoryTalk Audit database.
„
FactoryTalk View SE Trending: FactoryTalk View Site Edition natively trends data
from FactoryTalk Historian SE.
Other Information Sources
For additional information about FactoryTalk Historian SE, consult the resources available
from Start > Programs > Rockwell Software > FactoryTalk Historian SE > Help.
The same Help files are also located on your FactoryTalk Historian SE Installation DVD

FactoryTalk Services Platform is an underlying architecture and set of common services
(such as diagnostic messages, health monitoring services, access to real-time data, and
shared plant resources such as tags and graphic displays) that Rockwell Automation
products build upon. It is a prerequisite for all FactoryTalk-enabled software products,
such as FactoryTalk Historian SE, FactoryTalk View, and RSLinx Enterprise.
The following components and services install as part of the platform:
FactoryTalk Directory: Allows products to share a common address book, which finds
and provides access to plant-floor resources, such as data tags and graphic displays.
The FactoryTalk Services Platform includes two directories: a Local Directory and a
Network Directory. In a Local Directory, all project information and participating
software products are located on a single computer. Local applications cannot be shared
across a network. A Network Directory organizes project information from multiple
FactoryTalk products across multiple computers on a network.
Note: FactoryTalk Historian SE supports Network Directory only.
FactoryTalk Live Data: Manages connections between FactoryTalk products and data
servers. It reads values from and writes values to OPC-DA servers (OLE for Process

Auto Discovery Wizard
The Auto Discovery wizard is a feature of FactoryTalk Historian SE that guides you
through the process of finding data points from selected point sources, such as Linx
Enterprise, Linx Classic, other OPC-DA Servers (for example, kepware opc), and HMI/
Alarm Servers (for example, FactoryTalk View).
To start the wizard, click Start > Programs > Rockwell Software > FactoryTalk
Administration Console. The FactoryTalk Administration Console displays.
1. In the Explorer window, right-click the application or area from which you want to
search for data points. From the pop-up menu, select Discover Historian Points.
2. On the Discover Historian Points dialog box, select the appropriate server
connection and data collection interface to which you want to add points, and point
sources you want to search.
IMPORTANT! All the steps related to using the Auto Discovery wizard are explained in
detail in the FactoryTalk Historian SE Help. It can also be accessed by clicking the Help
icon on the Discover Historian Points dialog box.
3. After the wizard completes the point discovery, it prompts you to start the Data
Collection Interface Service to start collecting the data points in the FactoryTalk
Historian SE server.
Discovery Rule Editor
The Discovery Rule Editor is launched from the Discover New Historian Points dialog
box. Use this dialog box to create your own rules for use during the Auto Discovery
process. The data points (tags) that match the rules you created are added to the
FactoryTalk Historian SE Server. The set of rules that you define are stored in a userdefined rule XML file. The user-defined rule XML file is stored in the same location as
the default set of rule file (named AutoDiscovery and Configuration Rules.xml). When the
Auto Discovery wizard is run, rules from both files are used. However, the rules defined in
the user-defined XML file take precedence over the rules defined in the default XML file.

FactoryTalk Historian Live Data Local Interface
When you create the FactoryTalk Historian SE Server, by default a FactoryTalk Historian
Live Data Interface with the name FTLD1 is available locally on your FactoryTalk
Historian SE server computer, as shown in the following image.
This local interface is configured to start collecting data points from any data servers that
are available to the FactoryTalk Historian SE server.
IMPORTANT! You can use the local interface for data collection; however, we strongly
recommend that you create a remote interface on the computer that has the data
server installed. Buffering, which ensures that loss of data does not occur, can only be
enabled on a remote interface. To learn more about buffering, see “Steps to Enable
Buffering”.

CHAPTER 9
Configure a Collective
A collective consists of two FactoryTalk Historian SE servers that have the same
configuration database. This provides the same association between the key values in the
FactoryTalk Historian SE tables on all of the servers. This also ensures that the archive
data files have the same structure on all of the servers. You can also create a collective
with only one server.
Collectives Information
When working with collectives, keep the following in mind:
„
When creating collectives, you must always use fully qualified hostnames, not IP
addresses.
„
If you make a FactoryTalk Historian SE server(s) a member of a collective, you must
restart the server(s) after creating the collective. If you do not restart the server(s),
FactoryTalk Administration Console will not recognize any of the third-party tag
licenses you may have on your server(s).
„
The FactoryTalk Historian SE servers must be members of the same network domain
in a collective.
„
Activate the FactoryTalk Historian SE servers individually before you make them part
of a collective. You cannot activate a collective individually. To activate a FactoryTalk
Historian SE server, see “Steps to Get Activation from FactoryTalk Activation Server”
„
To create a collective on computers that have Windows Firewall turned on, you must
manually open Port 445 between the two computers. To open the port, follow these
steps:
a. Go to Start > Settings > Control Panel.
b. In the Control Panel window, click Windows Firewall.
c. In the Windows Firewall dialog box, click the Exceptions tab.
d. On the Exceptions tab, select the File and Printer Sharing checkbox (Programs

CHAPTER 10
Configure Redundant FactoryTalk Live Data Interfaces
In FactoryTalk Historian SE you can configure two FactoryTalk Live Data Interfaces to
work together as redundant interfaces. Having redundant interfaces increases the
reliability of data collection because if one interface fails, the other interface can keep
collecting data. This chapter describes how to set up redundant FactoryTalk Live Data
interfaces. You can set up phase 2 failover with either a single FactoryTalk Historian SE
server or a collective.
Prerequisites
A FactoryTalk Historian SE system with interface redundancy requires the following:
„
„
A FactoryTalk Historian SE server or a collective. To install and configure a
server, see “Steps to Install FactoryTalk Historian SE 2.1”. To configure a
collective, see “Configure a Collective”.
A primary and a secondary interface (an interface already exists, but is not yet
configured for failover mode). These systems typically also serve as primary and
secondary data servers.
Note: When you configure a FactoryTalk Historian SE Server, a FactoryTalk Historian Live
Data Interface with the name FTLD1 is created. Before you create a new interface, you
must delete the FTLD1 interface. To read about the FTLD1 interface, see “FactoryTalk
Historian Live Data Local Interface”.
„
A location to store the shared file that will be used for failover communication
between the primary and backup interfaces. That is, data will be written to and
retrieved from this shared file. We strongly recommend that you put this file on a
dedicated file server (for example, the FactoryTalk Directory server) that has no
other role in data collection.
Configure Phase 2 Failover
The following steps describe how to configure phase 2 failover with a single FactoryTalk
Historian SE server or a collective.
Configure Buffering on the Primary and Secondary Interfaces
To configure buffering on the primary and secondary interfaces, do the following:
1. Start the FactoryTalk Interface Configuration Utility from Start > Programs >
Rockwell Software > FactoryTalk Historian SE > Interface Configuration Utility.
2. From the Interface Configuration Utility menu bar, select Interface > SDK
Connections...

Monitor Failover Operations
The following five tags are configured to monitor failover operations: Active ID,
Heartbeat:1, Heartbeat:2, Device Status:1 and Device Status:2. You can also configure two
state tags for monitoring the status of the interfaces. If the interface does not find any of
the five failover control tags, it will log an error message and shut down.
53
• • • • •
10 • Configure Redundant FactoryTalk Live Data Interfaces
• • • • •
FactoryTalk Historian SE Installation and Configuration Guide
„
ActiveID: This value is monitored by the interfaces to determine which interface is
currently sending data to the FactoryTalk Historian server. The value can be changed
manually to initiate a manual failover.
„
Heartbeat ID: This value indicates that the interface is functioning. This point is
updated once every failover update interval. If the interface is connected to the
FactoryTalk Historian server, the value of the heartbeat point will be incremented by
UniInt from 1 – 15 and then wraps around to a value of 1 again. If the connection to
the FactoryTalk Historian server is lost, the value of the heartbeat point will be
incremented from 17 – 31 and then wrap around to a value of 17 again. Once the
connection to the FactoryTalk Historian server is restored, the heartbeat values revert
back to the 1 – 15 range. During a normal shutdown process, the heartbeat value will
be set to zero.
„
„
54
‡
Heartbeat:1: This value is updated periodically by the primary interface. The
secondary interface monitors this value to determine if the primary interface
has become unresponsive.
‡
Heartbeat:2: This value is updated periodically by the secondary interface.
The primary interface monitors this value to determine if the secondary
interface has become unresponsive.
Device Status: This value identifies the data collection ability of an interface. A good
value is represented by zero. Any value other than zero indicates the interface is not
fully communicating and collecting data from the data source. If the primary interface
writes a bad value for its device status to the shared file and the backup has a good
device status, the backup interface will attempt to assume the role as primary as soon
as it reads the bad device status value of the primary interface from the shared file.
‡
Devicestat:1: This value is updated by the primary interface.
‡
Devicestat:2: This value is updated by the secondary interface.
UFO_State:1 and UFO_State:2: These tags are digital tags assigned to a digital state
set with the following values. The value of a state tag is updated by the primary
interface.
‡
0 =Off: The interface has been shut down.
‡
1 =Backup No Data Source: The interface is running but cannot communicate
with the data source.
‡
2 =Backup No PI: The interface is running and connected to the data source
but has lost its communication to the FactoryTalk Historian server.
‡
3 =Backup: The interface is running and collecting data normally and is ready
to take over as primary if the primary interface shuts down or experiences
problems.
‡
4 =Transition: The interface stays in this state for only a short period of time.
The transition period prevents thrashing when more than one interface
attempts to assume the role of primary interface.
‡
5 =Primary: The interface is running, collecting data, and sending the data to
Historian.
To configure monitoring tags:
1. Open System Management Tools from Start > Programs > Rockwell Software >
FactoryTalk Historian SE > System Management Tools.
2. In the System Management Plug-Ins pane, select Points (left pane), and then select
the Digital States sub-folder.
3. Click the import sets and states from a file button on the toolbar (right pane). The
Import Digital Set(s) dialog box is displayed.
4. On the Import Digital Set(s) dialog box, click the button to browse to the
UniInt_Failover_DigitalSet_UFO_State.csv file. The file is usually located in the
C:\Program Files\Rockwell Software\FactoryTalk
Historian\Server\PIPC\Interfaces\OPCInt folder. In a collective, this file is imported
to the primary FactoryTalk Historian server and then synchronized with the secondary
server.
5. Once the file is imported, click Create Sets to create the sets, and then click Close to
close the Import Digital Set(s) dialog box. If the Digital Sets were imported correctly,
