Thank you for your questions.
In the user manual there is following description for the error you are seeing the log:
0x8000401a The server process could not be started because the configured identity is incorrect.
This connection error indicates a problem with the OPC server identity settings:
- The account specified for the server identity does not exist.
- The password for the account specified for the server identity is incorrect or expired.
- The server has been configured with an identity of Interactive user, but no user is logged on to the console of the server computer.
It seems that the account you are using to login to the machine is allowed to browse the server while the LocalSystem is not. It could be that some adjustment should be made in the KEPware LinkMaster to allow such connection from LocalSystem.
Please see DCOM Security and Configuration Guide here for more details on configuration: https://livelibrary.osisoft.com/LiveLibrary/content/en/int-dcom-v1/GUID-D8316F3F-6788-4EF5-B22C-C7A30F787EA2
