Hart - Enable Communication Error

I'm trying to enable the communication on Fieldbus management, However, It is saying that channel is not assigned as in the attachment even when I have done it. Am i missing something here ?

Please check the setting "Tool routing" in the controller is enable.

Also, check that the services "OPC" and "FBB-OPC" are in service status.

For further information, please see the manual "3BDD011934-### X System 800xA Device Management 5.1 PROFIBUS and HART Configuration".

Hope it help.

Best regards
