How to add the node with 800xA 6.0.3 RU2

Dear. Everyone

I'd like to know how to add new node in the existing system. (800xA 6.0.3 RU2)

Before the 800xA 6.0.3 RU2 is installed, it's working well.

But, the problem happens after the 800xA 6.0.3 RU2 is installed.

I attached the files about the problem.

If you know it, please reply the answer.

you need to match the client/Node installed software with your running 800xA software.
Looks like your node is of different version from your Server.

I had similar issue, I had 6.0.2 RU3 and tried to add node with 6.0.2 and failed.
We cannot update Rollup on a node only !
What I did was took a clone of another Client to new Client and changed the computer name & IP then added to system ..

If you find any other solution.. Please share !

Follow the below mentioned procedure.

1. Run the NPT tool using setup.exe from the 800xA 6.0.3 RU2.

2. In 800xa system setup select “Node Options”

3. “Specify path that contains one or more additional media” select 800xA 6.0.3 media

4. Continue installation as per procedure.

run NPT with repair option from the RU2 Media

ABB 800xA Base 6.0.3 RU2\Update\Tools\System Installer\Node Preparation Tool\ABB Node Preparation Tool.exe /repair

then select the Media itself (RU2 Media). This should add the missing update to the local node.
