version 7.7.x   Download Pending



This article is intended for PSIcapture Administrators.



The Capture Server tab of the Configuration root is designed to help PSIcapture Administrators determine the status of the installation, as well as configure advanced settings specifically related to a Capture Server dedicated machine.


Table of Contents


Capture Station Operating Mode/Service Manager



Click "Open Service Manager" to open the "Service Manager" window. In this section the user will define which “Capture Station Operating Mode” to operate in. It will by default, be set to Stand Alone Station Operating Mode. If batches and batch information is to be shared the user will want to set it to either Capture Server or Network Station. Selecting Capture Server for one of the stations in an environment will enable the Security Module and its Icon on the main splash screen.

Advanced Settings

This section is for the configuration of global notifications via email and log entries of occurrences listed on the notification tab. This affects all Capture Profiles. Granular or department level notification of a particular Capture Profile can be defined in Capture Profile - Validation and Exceptions.


Email & Log Alerts

This allows the email addresses listed under the Notifications subscriptions tab to be notified of select system events.



SMTP server name or IP Address

Enter the name of the SMTP server or IP Address that will send the email notifications.


Sender Address & Authentication

In this section the user will enter the email address, user name and password for the "Sender" of the email. For example, if "Joe Smith" is working at a network station then his email information is entered in order to know which station is logging the error. Once the email and login information is setup then the user should send a test email to ensure connection.


Message logging options

Enable message logging - This option logs messages for Migration Success/Failure or Notification Subscriptions. It will also log two entries per email. One when the email is added to the Message Queue and one for if the message was sent or an error occurred. All log entries are added to either the Capture Log or Capture.Services Log.

If after clicking the Send Test Email button the test email then fails to send for any reason, no log entry is created and an error message is displayed on screen within the Capture Server tab.


Example of Error Message:

[1/8/2014 8:22:49 AM] Error sending message(1) (To:; Subject: Auto Import Session Summary) Service not available, closing transmission channel. The server response was: 4.4.2 Message submission rate for this client has exceeded the configured limit

Example of Queue and Email Sent Message:
[07/02/2014 08:30:09] Message added to queue (To:; Subject: Batch Deadline Notification - Batch Deadline in 48 hours)
[07/02/2014 08:30:20] Message sent (To:; Subject: Batch Deadline Notification - Batch Deadline in 48 hours)
