1 Start the wwClient utility 




2 Enter the correct details for where your DASABCIP DA Server software is loaded as seen below then click the Done button.




2 You should see a successful connection to the DASABCIP DA Server as seen below then click on the Item menu.




3 The below menu appears and in the Item enter the tag $Sys$Updatetaginfo and select Deiscrete. Click on the AdviseEx button to connect to the tag.




4 Once connected to the tag you should see the 0x00c0 value return showing a good connection. Place a value of 1 and then click the Poke button. This will update your tags and the error messages will disappear.
