OPC Server Compact AC800M
We have one pc installed Compact builder M & OPC Server and another pc installed only OPC Server.
We have the problem:
We chaged the programs in project file and have downloaded it to the controller.
And then, the pc (installed only OPC Server) had disconnected OPC Server.
So, We tried to do the configuration in 3BSE041584 manual.
but, it is same status.
(*When We didn't change the programs and then have downloaded, OPC Server was disconnected.)
I wonder how to slove this problem.

This is solved by setting up a shared project folder.
Please see pages 113-114 in the user manual 3BSE041584-600.
Also see subsection "Multi-User Configuration" in Appendix A in the same book for general guidance when having multiple PC-nodes sharing the same Compact Control Builder data.
All OPC servers need updated configuration files after download to the controller.
The OPC server sharing node with Control Builder M have direct access, this is not the case for remote OPC servers.
The users guides must describe a method to bring the updated config files from CBM to remote OPC servers? In the past, FTP could be setup to accomodate automated transfer (I can not tell if this option is still available or not).
