Adding EOW-3x in 6.0?

Hi Stefan,

We have installed the EOW system services and deployed the sytem and able to see the system extension in admin str.

steps followed to add EOW-3x:

1.tried adding EOW from config wizard of Pri aspect server but showing unspecified error.


whats the procedure to add the EOW-3x in 6.0 system(note:not able to find any EOW operator station to add from SCC)

Not enough experience to tell, but for sure the old add node method of the config wizard is not appropriate.

Basically, there is no difference between an EOW and a client. I assume both are added the same way, through SCC.

In SCC there is no EOW client to add but after adding the EOW system services and deployed entire system, EOW connect node gets visible in the config wizard (manual also telling the same way) and then connected all EOW and its working fine.
doubt:But these EOW nodes are not visible in SCC so how we can do future update of these EOW nodes from SCC

An EOW is just a piece of furniture holding a number of individual clients and their monitors.

OK, msybe the system extension delivers some ready made stuff fitting the EOW, but it only needs to be "Losded" once into a system, regardless if it has one EOW or ten EOWs.

I assume adding additional EOWs (after the initial ones) boils down to "Add client" - something the SCC should be trusted with.
