The LabVIEW Datalogging and Supervisory Control (DSC) Module (before version 2017) and LabVIEW OPC UA Toolkit provide the Register Server VI to register an OPC UA server with the LDS. Before you register an OPC UA server with the LDS, you must ensure that the OPC UA server trusts the certificate file the LDS uses and that the LDS trusts the OPC UA server.
There are two main steps to configure the OPC UA server and the LDS to trust each other. First, you will need to configure the Microsoft Management Console to view, export, and import Certificates. Then, you will need to make the OPC UA Server and the LDS trust each other. Details for each of these steps are listed below.
After you configure Microsoft Management Console, you can view certificates on your local computer under Console Root in Microsoft Management Console.
After you export the certificate file the LDS uses, you must enter the path to this certificate file to the local discovery server certificate file input of the Register Server.vi so that the OPC UA server trusts the LDS.
You can make the LDS trust the OPC UA server by importing the certificate file the OPC UA server uses. Complete the following steps to make the LDS trust the OPC UA server:
After you use Microsoft Management Console to import the certificate file the OPC UA server uses, the LDS trusts the OPC UA server.
