Its very hard to tell what is wrong here - a number of things need to be in order for failover and redundancy to work in System 800xA.
I strongly recommend engaging your regional ABB support team; from the looks the system should be under some warranty - I suggest to use it.
Things to ensure:
1) RNRP must be enabled in all servers and clients. The RNRP monitor tool shall report all neighbour nodes.
2) DNS and/or hosts file content must be correct in every machine
3) Service groups in Service Structure must be configured with the redundant peers sharing the same group. E.g.
--OPC DA Connector
4) Affinity must be in order, or not used. Wrong affinity may block access to a server.
... the list could be made longer...
Check ur in rnrp both primary and secondary networks are up.
If you are using explicit IP address u should be very careful while setting the IP address in the controllers
If it come to server redunndacy services should be redundant ensure main services aspect directory, opc da, AE for soft and 800mm, crossref, fsd, basic history, alrm manager.
Can u share ur system config and version it will be good to support better
