Mapping object to Kepware Simulator Sample

I thought I had already tried that, but I guess not. That does clear the error and now I'm getting data.

I have not verified my suggestion below, but I have checked how the nodes in the KepServerEx are organized with your configuration,l and it seems to me that I know the reason.

"Channel1" is "Organizes" reference from the Objects folder.
"Device1" is "Organizes" reference from "Channel1".
"Tag1" is "HasComponent" reference from "Device1".

For the first two, the character that precedes them in browse path should be '/', which means "any hierarchical". The use of '.', which means "any component", is not possible beween the Object folder and Channel 1, because the "Organizes" reference is not a component.
The Tag1 is a component, and therefore either '.' or (a broader) '/' will work.

I think that the browse path to Device1 should therefore be [ObjectsFolder]/Channel1/Device1 ; the browse path to Tag1 should be [ObjectsFolder]/Channel1/Device1.Tag1 (or [ObjectsFolder]/Channel1/Device1/Tag1 ).

I hope this helps

can you attach here the project, and the KepServerEx configuration file?

Thank you

I am attempting a proof of concept example of Live Mapping an object in our system to an OPC UA device, in this case the 'Device1' that is the sample object provided by Kepware's Simulator driver. I am basing this code off of the ConsoleUALiveMapping sample in the Knowledgebase.

Sample code to do a read of the value I am trying to map(This works):
//test = new UAAttributeData();
            // Define the target controls, the OPC data we want to monitor, and how fast.
            var arguments = new[]
                new EasyUAMonitoredItemArguments(test, uri,"ns=2;s=Channel1.Device1.Tag1",1000)
            // Hook the event handler, and subscribe to OPC data
            _client.DataChangeNotification += ClientOnDataChangeNotification;
            _handles = _client.SubscribeMultipleMonitoredItems(arguments);

Now the this is the object I am trying to map to.:
    public class OPCDevice : INotifyPropertyChanged
        public event PropertyChangedEventHandler PropertyChanged;
        private void OnPropertyChanged([CallerMemberName]string property = null)
            PropertyChanged?.Invoke(this, new PropertyChangedEventArgs(property));
        public UANodeDescriptor NodeDescriptor { get; set; }
        [UANode(BrowsePath ="/Tag1"), UAData]
        public UInt16 Tag1
            get => _tag1;
            set { _tag1 = value; OnPropertyChanged(); }
        private UInt16 _tag1;

and the code to preform the mapping:
private void Map()
            UAEndpointDescriptor endpointDescriptor = uri;
            Device = new OPCDevice();
            _mapper.Map(Device, new UAMappingContext
                EndpointDescriptor = endpointDescriptor,
                // The NodeDescriptor below determines where in the OPC address space we want to map our data to.
                NodeDescriptor = new UANodeDescriptor
                    // '#' is a reserved character in a browse name, and must be escaped by '&' in the path below.
                    BrowsePath = UABrowsePath.Parse("[ObjectsFolder].Channel1/Device1", "KEPServerEX")
                MonitoringParameters = 1000,  // requested sampling interval (for subscriptions)

This results the exception being thrown:
OPC-UA service result - An error specific to OPC-UA service occurred.
Status Code: {BadNoMatch} = 0x806F0000 (2154758144)

with no inner exception.

So I'm trying to figure out why the TranslateBrowsePathsToNode is failing. I confirmed that 'KEPServerEX' is namespace ns=2 in this instance, and the path seem to match. Is there something obvious that I am missing?
