3. Detecting Device Access Status

If you find an Error or CrashLoopBackOff in deviceshifu status through the command kubectl get pods -n deviceshifu, it means that the connection is abnormal.

You can also print error messages with the command kubectl logs <NAME> -n deviceshifu.

Configure to Access an OPC UA Device

connection: Ethernet  
address: opc.tcp://
protocol: OPCUA
SecurityMode: None
ConnectionTimeoutInMilliseconds: 5000
AuthenticationMode: UserName
Username: user1
Password: pwd1

With the above configuration, set address to the address of your OPC UA device, protocol to OPC UA, protocolSetting to OPCUASetting, and configure SecurityMode, ConnectionTimeoutInMilliseconds, AuthenticationMode, and account password.

After modifying the configuration above, you can now create a deviceshifu to access the OPC UA device.
