Redundant Controller Ac900f No Secondary
i am using the two AC900F Redundant Controller, with IP Address 172.16.1.1 for Primary and 172.16.2.1,i am using the Cross Over ethernet cable between the two Controllers on ETH2 and its taking too much time in Downloading
as soon as i change the IP address of secondary to 172.16.1.2 it gets download but say no secondary.

The Issue was that AC900F redundancy requires to be redundant on both the sides Prim/Sec in my case the Redundancy was disabled on the secondary as soon as i enabled the redundancy according to the IP Address of the Controllers the redundancy established......,
How to go into BOOT Configuration of the Controller.
1. Power Off AC900F
2. Power On the AC900F Controller Pressing the ESC key on the Display Unit for more than 4 sec.
3. the Boot Configuration will Appear
Hi, check few things
Both the controller loaded with OS/firmware ?
Both the controller Eth1 set accordingly ? as set in cbf ? Ping test works for set ip ?
For both the controller 'redundancy enabled' ?
Lastly I am not 100% sure, but redundancy link cable should be straight cable.
And please read through AC 900F M&I documentation, redundancy part before setting up redundancy.
1.Check the same firmware is loaded in both the controllers.
2. Check IP address and Subnet mask is set properly.
3.As you have used in Controllers cross over cable will be used between Switches as well.
The same issue i have faced and found issue in Profibus looping and terminations done in profibus connectors.
If you are using RLM01 for establishing redundancy in Profibus Communication:
Connect IN to IN in Profibus Connector from CI930 to RLM01 Master Port.And Check Termination in Profibus Connector is on in Both the ends.Same procedure is applicable for both the controllers.
If you are using TU915F for establishing redundancy in Profibus Communication:
Connect IN to IN in Profibus Connector from TU915F to CI930.And Check Termination in Profibus Connector is on in TU815F Side and at the end of Slave Side.Same procedure is applicable for both the controllers.
(Note: Connect the ethernet cable came along wit TU915F to the ethernet ports available in TU915F and CI930F side)
Then you download the Application to controller and check whether it is showing Running,Sync
