When a process station with Webpanel is to be restarted remotely (because of some configuration changes, CF commit and reboot for permanent saving of changes) there happens that the OS closes network connections (thus remote communication is terminated) and then asks if the Webpanel service has to be quit. This prompt can not be remotely acknowledged, and the station seems to stop responding – it does not reboot.
Solution: if there is a need of remote restart of a station with Webpanel, shut down the web service first using Web Panel Win Service Manager, and then reboot the station.
We would like to inform you about the release of the new version of Merbon SCADA 1.5.3 software on our website. This release includes modifications to both the service itself and the Merbon SCADA installer.
