OPC UA Connection Faulted After Upgrade

Upgraded Ignition Edge 8.0.16 with a working standard OPC-UA Server running to 8.1.0 and got the following:

java.lang.Exception: OPC server connection is faulted. Type “com.inductiveautomation.OpcUaServerType” is not a known server type.

Under OPC-AU Connection in the config shows no OPC Connections. Try to create a new connection and get:

Field ‘choice’ is required.
but will not let me proceed.

This was the case for 2 different upgrades, the first we have tried. Both use redundant pairs. I tried deleting the certificate files as stated above with no change after restart.

Is the OPC UA module faulted?

Ah, yes it is. Says it is not eligible for use with Ignition Edge, unless licensed. I will have to discuss this with our rep. These Edge installations should work as they did before the upgrade.

Yep, sounds like the OPC UA module was unintentionally omitted from your license. I think this license check you’re seeing that results in a faulted module is new for 8.1.

Thanks Kevin!

Our Rep had us reactivate the license and the the modules changed from faulted to running. Other than one anomaly w/ a few modules on one gateway, this did the trick. Be sure to reactivate the license after an upgrade!
