Error while adding Log Configuration


When I try to add a new Log Configuration using the "New Aspect" windows, I get the "Method '~' of object '~' failed" popup error message, followed by another popup window that says "[Error] Operation rejected by 2B_YI1410B:Signal Configuration (Object hook: Change). Transaction Cancelled". Then finally, another popup error message that says "Failed to create aspect! Unable to map view of file for OLE service".

How do I rectify this delima? Thank you.

Seems like SoftPoint/PLC Connect throw in its "veto" (internally called a hook error) when you try to add a Log Configuration.

Maybe something goes wrong inside SP/PLCC code, but in the end it plays its veto card and Plant Explorer complies. Likely, the SP/PLCC devs need to take a look at this.

I suggest asking regional support to create a support case.

Would it be possible to scratch this object and create a new (the hook error could deny delete as well...)? Have you tried on different nodes in case there is a software damage causing the failure? ~ of ~ errors are usually due unhandled Visual Basic errors (code with no OnErrorGoto clause). I believe SP/PLCC contain such code. Fix the VB error and the hook will likely stop triggering the veto.

In my application, I have both 800xA tags and Rockwell PLC tags (via RXLinx). This error is only occurring when I try to add Log Configuration to the Rockwell PLC tags and not the 800xA tags. Is there a service that I could potentially restart in 800xA so that I can "start fresh"?

This has nothing to do with the "system", it is a "hook" that PLC Connect has put on their objects.

The hook is there to automatically perform actions when something happens with the object (e.g. become with a new aspect).

In this case, the "hook code" malfunction and the result is a "hook error" which causes the Plant Explorer to abort the job.

There is little you can do without knowledge in why the hook fail and how to prevent it.

I suggest that you seek help from your regional ABB support center.

PLC Server is the service you potentially could try to give a restart, but if that solves the problem or not is unclear (I deem it less likely).

Looking at this closer at my 800xA app, here are my findings...

The tag that is having difficulity adding "Log Configuration" aspect is defined in both the "Functional Structure" and the "Control Structure". I am alluding that the "Functional Structure" is creating this "hook" and hence I am not able to add the "Log Configuration" aspect?

Just as a test, I have another tag that is only in "Control Structure". And for this tag, I can add "Log Configuration" aspect without a problem.

My my deduction correct? If it is, how can I get around to adding "Log Configuration" ascpect to tags in both "Functional Structure" and "Control Structure"?
