If no value written If no value has been written to the tag, the InitialValue field is applied to the tag.
Changes to the InitialValue field will be applied to the tag until the first value is written.
After the first value is written, changes to the InitialValue field have no effect.
New tags created by copying an existing tag will be initialized with the InitialValue and good quality.
If the Fernhill SCADA Server is restarted, the value of the tag is preserved.
On server start If the Fernhill SCADA Server is restarted, the initial value will be written to the tag.
Changes to the InitialValue field will be applied to the tag until the first value is written.
