Getting Database values despite Workstation being in Operating Mode.
Server is indicating Engineering Mode is active by the Red X in the task bar icons for Server and Workstation
Vista Workstation 4.3.1 and later
Vista 4.3.1 introduced a change in the way Operating mode works in Server and Workstation. Previously there was only one Operating mode which was defined in Vista Workstation, however if someone logged on to do some changes in engineering mode this effected the ability for Vista Webstation to serve users over the ethernet. They would not be viewing live data, but database values from when the operating mode was changed.
In Vista 4.3.1 and later, there is a Server operating mode and a Workstation operating mode. The Workstation operating mode will only affect the instance of Workstation that specified that mode allowing other users stay in Operating mode in Workstation or Webstation. Workstation Operating mode is still controlled from the Workstation user interface as normal. To change the Server Operating mode use Workstation to access the $system object in the root directory visible in Workstation.
- In Workstation, navigate to the root TAC Vista
- Double click the $System object in the root folder
- Check the box for "Operating" to set the server to operating mode.
