Problem configuring 800xA SV4.1 with Harmony-Connect: Cannot add the Harmony OPC Control Network to the Aspect Directory. Error Message: This operation is not allowed
There are two possibilities in which this typically occurs. The first is attempting to add the Harmony Control Network from an incorrect Node, or with an incorrect User Account. To correct this, ensure the Harmony OPC Control Network is added from the Configuration Server Node using an account in the Local Administrator group, preferably the 800xa installing account, not the harmony service account, and the account has the applicable roles as outlined in the Post Installation Manual for 800xA, and the user account belongs to the 800xA Administrators group.
Another scenerio has all the confguration set properly and the correct Account logged on from the correct node, normally the ConfigServer Node, and still not able to add the Harmony OPC Control Network. To correct this issue, it is necessary to configure the Regional Settings found in Control Panel (Start, Settings, Control Panel, Regional and Language Options, Regional Options tab, Customize..., Date tab), on the Config Server Node. The change to apply is to the Short date format which needs to be changed to 'M/d/yy'. Apply the change and add the Harmony OPC Contol Network in accordance with the Post-Installation Manual.Symptoms:
