800xA OPC DA Server.
We were in the process of integrating 3rd party OPC server, our system version is 800xA 5.1 FP4. When we tried to browse the data on "AdvDsOPCClient.exe", when i click the control network on "add items" it returns a error "Could not browse OPC server to the selected branch".
Any valuable suggestion to fix the problem would be appreciated.

It was the known issue in SV 5.1 and SV 5.1 Rev A and
Product Bulletin was released for this issue - Please refer 3BSE066045_-_en_System_800xA_Operations_SV5.1_Browsing_for_properties_ma
but your system version is SV 5.1 FP4 which should have this fix already!
Try the workaround given in the PB which may help you.
By the way,please check the OPCEnum service is running and that is typically installed on a computer along with the OPC server. It runs as a System service and provides a means to browse the local machine for OPC servers and then expose the list to the OPC client.
You need to assign some Alarm and Event List Configuration to "Calibration Event List" which is used for ABB HART Device Integration in the control Structure. Then you can browse the opc through AdvDSOPCClient.exe and Matricon OPC also. Always use Surrogate OPC of 800xA for 3rd party use .
