Exception when browsing an OPC UA Server

Thank you.

Next time I will start a new thread. I thought it is related...

Two questions regarding solution 2) below,

1) Do you mean this section?

EasyUAApplication.Instance.ApplicationParameters.ApplicationManifest.ApplicationName =
"QuickOPC - VBNet example application"


If we do it, what will be displayed in the Administer OPC UA Application -> Application Certificate -> Subject URL name? See below.



2) Will it show the application name that we set in our code?

Thank you.

Michael

Hello.
next time, please create a new forum thread, for reporting new issues. You can always link to some other thread if there is a relationship.

It is difficult to judge, because the pictures you have attached have degraded resolution. But after some enlarging, and some guesswork, I think that I can see that the reason (see picture):



You have probably updated your software, and also updated its version number. The default QuickOPC behavior is that it constructs the OPC UA Application URI based on various pieces of information, including the version number. But, the Application URI must match the one in the application certificate - and in this case, it does not (the certificate has ....108.0 in it, but the software itself is ....109.0).

Some applications benefit from this behavior (because it allows multiple versions of the application coexist on the same computer), while others do not (because they want the application to effectively remain "THE SAME" application after a version update).

You can either:

1) Regenerate the certificate (the "Create/recreate own certificate"); in turn, you will have to re-establish the trust on the server side (so that the server trusts the new client certificate). And, repeat this process every time the application version changes.

OR

2) At the beginning of your application, place a piece of code that will configure a more "fixed" application URI, such as that it does not change with version number changes [this does not resolve the very current instance of the problem; but it just addresses the same thing for all future deployments]. See: opclabs.doc-that.com/files/onlinedocs/QuickOpc/Latest/User%2...%20Application%20Manifest.html . In short, you need to set some URI string into the EasyUAApplication.Instance.ApplicationParameters.ApplicationManifest.ApplicationUriString property.

Best regards

Hi,

Operating system is Windows Server 2016.

Today we tried connecting and reading OPC items and got an exception. See the attached files.

Any idea what is the problem? UA Expert works fine.






Thank you.

Michael

Hello,

I do not want to side-track you too much from the main issue (which is establishing the communication between the client and the server, and all the certificate-related stuff), but I have some additional questions from the developer regarding the crash you got while browsing (after existing the OPC UA Application Administration dialog). If you can answer at least part of it, it would be nice.

1. Can you reproduce it multiple times, or was it "one-time" occurrence?
2. Did it happen on Windows 10, or Windows 11?
3. Is there an entry in Windows Application log at the time of crash, and if so, can yo please send its full text? Or, if the crash happens again, please select all text in the crash dialog, copy it and send over (i.e. not just the screenshot - because it contains just part of the call stack, not the whole stack)

Many thanks

Hello.

Believe me or not, we are making progress. This error was expected. You now have a new client-side certificate, so the server needs to be configured to accept it.
After you/your customer does so, you should be OK.

Hello, and thank you.

Notes:
- No wonder "Refresh Trust Lists" does not work; I have not instructed you to do that
- The crash after exiting the dialog: This is clearly our problem, I will pass it onto the developer.

But, from the screenshots I have enough information to proceed forward.
Please do the following:

1. Invoke the OPC UA Application Administration dialog again.
2. Switch to the "Application Certificate" tab.
3. Press "Create/recreate own certificate". If you get Yes/No confirmation about certificate validation, answer Yes.
4. Take a screenshot of the "Application Certificate" tab after the previous step.
5. Exit the OPC UA Application Administration dialog.
6. Retest. If you run into problems, send me the information about the behavior, AND the screenshot from Step 4.

Best regards

4. I tried it. See the screen captures below.

Hello.

You have not answered any of my questions in my last post. I need those answers.
Here are the questions again:

Questions:

1. Please also include screenshot of the "Application Certificate" tab of the dialog.
2. Please also include screenshot of the "Application Manifest" tab of the dialog.
3. Are you able to connect when you answer "Yes" to the notification? If not, is the exception in "Browse for OPC-UA Data" different between the Yes and No responses - and what are the 2 exceptions in these cases?
4. On the "Trusted Certificates" tab, select the second row (the one with "GTCHVE3SA01 OPCUA Server". Then, click the "Trusted" item under "Trust Status" in the action pane on the right side. The "Trust Status" column for that certificate should change to "Trusted, Issuer". Exit the dialog, exit the application, and start it again. Is the problem resolved now? If not, are you getting the same symptoms, or is the behavior now different? If it is different, please describe the new behavior.

Hi,

Now our OPC Client is based on Quick OPC V2023.1.
OPC UA Expert can connect with the remote OPC server with no errors. See below.



Our OPC UA Client fails to connect to the same server. See the error below.



Thank you.
