Harmony Connect 800xA 6.1 failure before project import
the goal is to connect a testsystem ( SPC700 with PNI800) to the 800xA System ( virtual on ESXi-Server)
After Setting up a testproject in S+ Engineering environment with a DO outputcard and a few tags the project was exported via CLD export
After following the manual harmony connect configuration I created the necessary OPC server objects in 800xA and tried to upload the project (mdb file)
The attached screenshot is how far I got.
I set up an 800xA System first and rolled out the necessary the 800xA for Symohony Plus Components
For the testproject I used: S+ Engineering 1.4
I would be grateful for some advice,

The 800xA uploader requires a taglist database exported from a S+E taglist and not so much a CLD export. Your screenshot appears to indicate that the Export2.mdb database used for the upload does not contain a taglist or the taglist structure is not compatible with the uploader.
Very briefly, you will need to...
- Make sure the S+E project Operations console is set up for 800xA.
- Create the tags at the controller level. Sounds like you already may done this.
- Create a new taglist in S+E under the List object of the project.
- Copy the tags from the controller to the taglist and edit as required for alarm priorities etc.
Have a look at the following...
The S+ Engineering Harmony engineering User manual, 2VAA000812-* for the S+E activities to create a taglist
Section 5 - Project Architecture
Section 6 - Tag Configuration
The 800xA for Symphony Plus Harmony Configuration User manual, 3BUA000157-* for the 800xA activities to set up the system definition and upload a taglist.
Section 7 - System Definition
Section 10 - Additional Harmony Settings
Section 4 - Harmony Tags
Section 5 - Uploader
Also, if you just want to do some sort of a sanity check on the hardware and software right now, you can always manually create the harmony hierarchy objects and add a tag directly in 800xA (Refer to Section 2 of 800xA for Symphony Plus Harmony Configuration User manual, 3BUA000157-*).
I could import the Taglist into the 800xA System (Screenshot 1) after reading the manuals at the recommended parts
Unluckily I have also a few further questions now.
The definition of "Harmony Server" Node, does it mean the Object in the 800xA Struchture or the S+ Enginnering Server on the physical node on connectivity server? (Screenshot 2)
I didn't establish a connection yet. For that I'm not sure if and which Harmony Server Software must be installed on the 800xA Connectivity server. Right now I exported the project from a virtual machine outside the network. ( Could I use S+ Engineering Server 1.4 there?)
As I saw after taking a look to the manual that most of the default values are already ok for my project, one strange thing was that my domain hasn't IndustruialITOperator and IndustrialITApplicationEngineer User after rollout, is that necssary?
I'm looking forward to another helpful answer and thanks for your help so far.
