MB300 RTA Board Configuration 800xA 5.1 Error

I have accidentally removed RTA card object from the control structure.
I can add the object but when I try to enter the net and node, it refuses it with the error "Illegal Network / Node Address, old address remains"

In addition, it says "The RTA Board is dead" in the RTA Board Control aspect.
Do you have any tips?

Add New RTA from Configuration Wizard

As said by other, try adding a new network, then drag controllers over.

800xA for Advant Master uses "hooks" that most of the time play with your desires.
