From a new system, is it possible to communicate with 1 domain System & 1 Workgroup system through Matrikon/Kepware
I have 2 different DCS systems. First System is in Domain. Second is in Workgroup.
Through Kepware, i would like to communicate both the OPC.
Customer says only one PC should be used.
From one new PC, is it possible to communicate First system in domain & second system in workgroup.
Has someone did this?
Install the tunneler at each end; create an OPC transfer user account on the server side, add it to the system (as non-admin) and finally use dcomcnfg.exe to lock down the surrogate to it. Then try connecting/browsing at the client side.
Just be careful when uploading another system's objects since some objects share name (name clashes) as "one xA uploading another xA" will get you into this.
The Generic OPC Uploader can be tuned to avoid this (registry keys). I think there are some old threads on AKS describing them, or ask your regional ABB support center for advice.
You can also choose the Advanced upload where you can edit the .ocs upload result file before inserting (appending) it to the system.
