OPCDA Service with Remote OPC node doesn't work
I want to connect OPCDA to my 800xA system from a third party OPC Server which is on the same network. I created the Service Group and Service Provider to connected to one of my servers, from which I am able to connect and read values from that 3rd party OPC through Matrikon Explorer. Put the 3rd party OPC Ip address in Remote OPC node, click Refresh and I am able to see the list of OPC servers. But when I apply, the status switching between Initialized and Undefined for 3 times and stay in Undefined.
What could be the reason it doesn't work?
Which Accuray Object Server are you trying to connect to ? Is it for the same paper machine that the 800xA system is running on and in the same domain ?
The Accuray Object Server is running on the QCS Server node of the system. Run the QCS_OPCDA_SP service provider localy on that node.
If you're trying to connect to the AOS of a different paper machine on a different domain - even though the IP address range is the same - then you have domain security issues.
Install and Run Advasol's OPC Security Analyzer on both the server and client machine.
