First off you don't say if you have a first generation or second generation. Second there is no AGFA EI PACS and third the CR30 never connects to a PACS system.
Are you asking about how to configure the CR30X first or second generation to use Exposure Index EI to communicate with an NX workstation?
The CR30X is just a digitizer and is not the acquisition station, it is only one part of a CR System.
The CR30-X first generation is ASAP over firewire to the NX Workstation.
The CR30-X second generation is ASAP over ethernet to the NX workstation via a network switch on the clinic network.
The CR30-X first generation only used LGM and not EI for dose monitoring.
The CR30-X second generation only used EI for dose monitoring.
The dose setting for the CR30-X LGM or EI is determined at the original setup of the NX workstation software prior to fist activation.
I do not know of a way that you can easily tell NX that the CR30-X second gen is using EI if it was originally setup for lgm.
Best is to restore NX to factory settings prior to first activation.
But before you do that you need to find all the .alf files and copy them to something like c:\agfa licenses. Because if you do the reset it will wipe the licensing folders clean and then you're up the creek.
email me because I would like more details on what exactly you are trying to accomplish.
Because from your request you don't seem to know what the CR30 is, it appears you think it's the workstation which it is not.

Ron thanks for answering.....when I saw Agfa EI I mean Agfa Enterprise Imaging which is the replacement to Agfa Impax...I also meant we are going with some Windows 10 NX computers with the latest version of NX software.....was looking to see what are the pitfalls

You can't just install NX on any workstation and any Windows OS. NX8000 to 9000 was designed to function on Win7x86 only.
NX20, 21, 22 is designed to function on Win10Prox86.
All configuration on NX is done through the NX configurator and you can set up any destination.
If you purchased the new workstations from AGFA they will work fine because they are configured and licensed by AGFA.
If you just arbitrarily installed Windows 10 on a workstation and installed NX20, 21 or 22 AGFA will not license it. Because the mac address and system serial number won't match their sales database.
All updated workstations must come from AGFA.
