Option to verify PI Data Archive connection during PI SDK installation
During PI SDK installation, there is currently no option to verify the connection to the PI Data Archive. This can lead to complications if, for example, PI Interface Configuration Utility (which includes PI SDK) is the first piece of PI software installed on the machine and an invalid PI Data Archive name has been entered during the installation. Because there is no verification in the installer, the PI SDK and anything that relies on the Known Servers table entry such as interface.bat files must be corrected post-installation.

This issue comes up all the time if you use a PI Collective. While I agree with the suggestion, I also know that PI SDK is on its way out, and OSIsoft will probably never get around to this.
