OPC failover and reset

I have set up a primary and failover backup of Ignition based OPC-UA computers. The question is: how do we know if we have failed over to the backup computer, and can it be set up so a plant operator can reset the pair back to the primary system through a SCADA screen?


There’s no indication right now. I’m going to make a ticket so I don’t forget about this; hopefully I can implement something soon.

(Assuming you’re talking about the advanced option when setting up a UA connection to specify a failover endpoint/settings.)


A two year old post but was this ever done. it would be really handy to know if the OPC connection had failed over.

There is currently an advanced setting if you edit your OPC-UA server connection for a failover OPC server.

Great, but the orignial request was to get a status to know when the OPC connection is using FailOver or not and also a way to return to the primary connection when available !
