I have an L63 i need to change for an L72 and upgrade to v24 to be able to use a couple of Kinetix drive. when i do the upgrade in the PLC i went to do the same on the Ignition gateway. i have 7.9.13 . gateways does not allow an upgrade so i believe i have to delete and do a new one with the L72. I did this on a backup gateway and when i was connected non of my current tags can be read in ignition.
this would be the L63 current tag path that i have working
but when i went into the L72 OPC server and created a tag from there the path is
ns=1;s=[syrup]N14.N14.14 ( no global) global are controller tags.
so i can either export all the tag replace and then import which is not ideal. or if there is a better way in Ignition that i don’t know. please help me out.
I thought this would a simple thing, maybe prefix in the gateway tag or something, since I guess upgrading a PLC in a plant is something normal for everyone and I really does not make sense that this not an Auto option. but I couldn’t find anything at all. any help will be appreciated.
