I'm trying to simulate using automation server with 1 devices, the devices can be found when I do network scan, but when I try to add to server it shows status "User management needs to be activated.", thus I cannot add the device to server. Can anyone help?
which plc do you want to add?
You need to login to the plc once by CODESYS to set the UserManagement credentials, then you could add the plc to the Automation Server.
I already try to setup the device user management as attached, but the problem still occurred
I also tried:
1. activate MFA in automation server
2. create new fresh PLC device, the error message change as attached but still unable to add the device to server
Control RTE and CODESYS is in current version..? There you will be asked to add the usermanagement on first login of CODESYS
I think yes, I just download it last week
where can I check the RTE version?
now I understand, you try to simulate ? You need to use a real plc - use Control Win 64 on your CODESYS pc- maybe I'm wrong. Just start the plc in the tasktray by rightclick on the plc symbol, then change the project in Codesys by rightclick in the devicetree - update device to Contol Win 64. Then login to this device (you will be asked for add user credential) . After that add this plc to the Automationserver.
Yes, I'm trying to simulate the PLC to automation server.
So does it means I cannot do simulation with automation server if I don't have any real PLC?
I already update the device to Control Win 64 and start the PLC but the problem still occurred when I try to add the device to server as before
you need to disable simulation in CODESYS then it will work, start the plc in the tasktray and login to that with CODESYS first..then continue with automation server.
I disable the simulation in CODESYS, start the PLC, but when login showed error message as attached
switch the Gateway to localhost to login to the plc.
already setup to localhost before
sorry forgot attachment
no just login here by local Gateway, without using the Automation server.
ok already login to gateway-1
what should I do next so I can connect to automation server?
on first login that way you will be asked for to add login credentials - these are the one you will be asked on adding the plc to the automation server.
Either you disable user management or you give the plc the credentials on first login. how to disable them you'll find on - faq.codesys.com
it worked, thank you very much Edwin, really appreciate your help
