To take full advantage of the SmartPlant P&ID integration tools available with the software, we recommend that you install and configure the Piping Specification Remote Access Server service on the same system where Smart 3D has been installed.

  • You must have administrator privileges on the computer to perform this installation procedure.

  • The Piping Specification Remote Access Server service is installed as part of the Smart 3D Installation setup. You must also install the Bulkload Reference Data and the Server Connectivity components as they are required for the Piping Specifications Remote Access Server to work. For more information, see Install Smart 3D Client Software.

  • The computer on which you installed the Piping Specification Remote Access Server becomes a server for SmartPlant P&ID clients, and must be powered on and available whenever P&ID needs to access the catalog. For example, you could use the computer that is used for the Interference Checking service.

Verify SP3D Piping Specification Remote Access Server Service

  1. Open Search Windows.

  2. Type services.msc and click OK.

    The Services window displays.

  3. Verify that the S3DRefDataServiceManager service is listed.

  4. If the service is not listed, run the Smart 3D client installation and select Piping Specification Remote Access Server. For more information, see Install Smart 3D Client Software.

Set the Service Account Credentials

  1. Right-click the S3DRefDataServiceManager service, and select Properties.

  2. Select the Log On tab.

  3. Select This account and enter a user name and password of a user who has access to the Smart 3D databases and is an administrator on the computer.

  4. Click Apply.

  5. Select the General tab.

  6. Verify that Startup type is set to Automatic.

  7. Start the service if it is not running, or restart the service if it is running. This restart is required so that the service is running using the new user credentials.

Configure the Firewall

The firewall must be open to allow S3DRefDataServiceManager.exe access over the network. S3DRefDataServiceManager.exe uses TCP port 8082 by default. You can either open that port or you can open connections for the executable.
