ABB 800XA V6.0.3 Installation
I have installed ABB 800XA V6.0.3 software into my PC as ASCS1 by following the software installation procedure.
Now my question is how i connect it to my system with my existing program backup?
Actually what is the procedure to connect the system after install a new PC as ES/OS?
Did you perform an upgrade?
I.e. the previous version was less than 6.0.3?
What version of 6.0.3 did you install? It was released in 2016 as "6.0.3" and during the following years a number of revisions, rollups and temporary corrections have been released:
- 126.96.36.199 with support for Win10
- 188.8.131.52 with support for Server 2016
- 184.108.40.206 the most recent revision, released in 2020.
All software details are listed in detail in this Technical Descripton published on ABB Library (subscription required): System 800xA 6.0.3 System Software Versions, 3BSE076281-603
Given the introduction of the new v6 System Installer, certain rules must be abided when installing and upgrading. The "System Installer" keeps track of software versions, nodes and features.
Restoring a backup from the same system version and geometry (nodes, features, etc.) is less complex; In theory, use the Configuration Wizard to "Delete System" then "Restore System".
Restoring a backup from an older system version is considered an "upgrade". The procedure is described in the Upgrade Manual.
Restoring a backup from another system, another geometry, etc. is more complex with the new System Installer. Please read about ths in the user's guides. It is important to handle the System Configuration State aspects correct; or else the System Installer will end up in a mess flagging many (all?) nodes as "invalid" since their geometry does not match what the system installer thinks it should be.
I heartily recommend studying the user's guides, here is a subset you can start with
