To import OPC tags from an OPC server into Security Center, you must import the type definition file into the OPC Client plugin.
Before you begin
What you should know
To delete or modify imported entity types, you must delete the plugin role and its database, create another instance of the plugin role, and create another XML file.
To add new entity types to Security Center, update the XML file to include the entity types under a unique name, and then reimport the file.
Copy your XML file to the OPC Client
Extensions folder on the plugin server.
The default location is $\Program Files (x86)\Security Center Plugins\OPCClient\Extensions.
- If the OPC Client plugin role is already created, deactivate and then reactivate the role for the entity types to be loaded.
- After the OPC Client role is created, verify that the Generic extension is loaded on the Extensions page of the OPC Client plugin.
