This Service is used to add one or more Nodes into the AddressSpace hierarchy. Using this Service, each Node is added as the TargetNode of a HierarchicalReference to ensure that the AddressSpace is fully connected and that the Node is added as a child within the AddressSpace hierarchy (see OPC 10000-3).

When a Server creates an instance of a TypeDefinitionNode it shall create the same hierarchy of Nodes beneath the new Object or Variable depending on the ModellingRule of each InstanceDeclaration. All Nodes with a ModellingRule of Mandatory shall be created or an existing Node shall be referenced that conforms to the InstanceDeclaration. The creation of Nodes with other ModellingRules is Server specific.
