I've recently updated my controller axc2152 to firmware 2021.0 lts. I want to connect to proficloud, but in the wbm its allready unable to reach the proficloud. "Failed to initialize, could not connect to cloud..."

I am connected to the internet and wrote the systemtime to device.. I have added the certificate aswell to the controller.

Before, I had no problems with connecting.. What could be the problem?

Hi Arne,

It could be a few things, but one thing you could try - if it doesn't cause too much trouble - is a Type 1 reset. This can sometimes solve some of the more common problems we have seen after an upgrade to version 2021.0. This is the command for a Type 1 reset:

sudo recover-plcnext 1

This will delete the "upper directory", which contains all user-modified files, including any PLCnext Engineer projects.

After the reset, change the IP address settings on the PLC to access the internet, and try connecting to Proficloud again.

There is some maintenance on proficloud. Maybe that was the dealbreaker..

If the service is online I will try to reset my controller. Thanks
