800xA OPC AE Error
I got an error for 800xA OPC AE subscription on a OPC Third party Client.
I´m using the ABB.OPCEventServer.1. When I try get status function, it returns the message "OPC_STATUS_NOCONFIG". On Matrikon Explorer, when tried to EventSubscription the log message returns "Error 0x8ABB000B", that means "E_AFW_CS_NOCONN" (fetched by AfwErrorLookup).
Why could be the reasons for this kind of problem ?
Is there any way to reconfigure or reinstall OPC AE Server ?
Thanks in advance.
Are you running the 3rd party client locally on an 800xA client or server node?
I tested with "Mr Crilfe" (a well known test client among us at SE L3) - it has no problems connecting the ABB.OPCEventServer.1 (note: the buffer size must be reduced from its initial setting of 1000, I usually test with size=100)
Is the operator workplace or plant explorer functional wrt to A&E?
OPC AE over DCOM is another thing; an OPC tunneller might be advisable to avoid nasty DCOM settings and security breaches (e.g. using the service account where not appropriate).
