We’ve been ‘playing’ with Ignition for a few weeks now, mainly doing screen design and MySQL dB access. Now I’m trying to hook up a real device, and I’m having a few issues that I hope you can help me with please?
I have a Lenovo ThinkPad laptop with a Trial Ignition system installed and working on it.
I have a Advantech Adam 6060 DAQ module that has an ethernet connection to a hub.
I have the Advantech Modbus OPC Server installed and running on my laptop.
The Modbus OPC Server is talking to the Adam-6060 ok. I can connect the Advantech OPC Browser and see values changing as I change them on the device.
With my default Ignition system I was initially able to connect the the OPC Server and ‘see’ the OPC tags, although I never saw valid values. However after a short period the OPC Server connection failed. The error would seem to be a DCOM/permissions issue.
I searched through these forums and found that similar issues are often resolved by changing the user account details of the Ignition Service.
However when I change my login details, the Ignition Service fails to start with a NET HELPMSG 3547 error.
Looking in the log, this is something to do with a HASP licence. I’m still running a trial version, so I’m not sure what to do now. I believe we do have valid licences so that could be the issue?
Any help to get a working end-to end system greatly appreciated.
