I am trying to re-image a couple of older cRIOs (Model cRIO - FRC II)
The cRIO imaging tool does not seem to detect it.
"No CompactRIO devices found."
I see the Ethernet activity lights blinking.
The laptop is connected to the D-Link bridge, as is the cRIO.
I can ping the cRIO at 10.20.16.2.
When I run Wireshark, I can see the cRIO transmitting data.
My laptop does a UDP broadcast, and the cRIO promptly replies to it.
I don't see any other network activity, and the imaging tool displays the error mentioned above.
The laptop wireless interface is disabled. No other network interfaces.
Can someone help? TIA

Can you see your cRIO in Measurement and Automation Explorer? If you're not familiar with this it is a program that is used to configure National Instruments hardware. It should appear in your start menu under All Programs >> National Instruments >> NI MAX. If you open this program it should show Remote Systems on the lefthand side. If you expand this section it should show your cRIO if it's properly connected. If it does not show here try looking through this KnowledgeBase.

Yes. It shows up.
I see the Software, but not the Devices. Should I be seeing the Analog & Digital modules?
Unfortunately, the imaging tool still behaves as before. What can I try next?
Note, I don't have the RSL Blinky light attached.

When you look at the cRIO in MAX what does it show for its status and IP Address? What is the IP Address of your computer set to when you're trying to connect with it? Also what software do you see on the device?

Laptop IP address is 10.20.16.5, mask 255.255.255.0
cRIO Status is 'Connected - Running'
cRIO IP Address is 10.20.16.2
Pls see attached screen shot for software, it includes
HTTP Client 10.0.0
LabView RealTime 12.0
Language Support for LV RT 126.96.36.199
NI System Configuration 5.3.0
NI Sys Config Remote Support 5.3.0
NI Vision RT 188.8.131.52.14
NI Web based Config & Monitoring
NI RIO 12.0
NI Serial RT 5.2.0
NI Visa 5.2.0
Rem0te Panel Server for Web Svcs
System State Publisher
Var Legacy Protcol Supp 5.4.0
As mentioned, the cRIO is responding to MAX, but not to the cRIO Imaging Tool.
I emailed you a pcap file showing traffic between my laptop and the cRIO:
packets 1 - 16: cRIO powered on
packets 17 - 18: cRIO imaging tool started
packet 17 The laptop broadcasts an UDP packet to port 44515
packet 18: cRIO responds quickly
Then the Imaging Tools errors out with "No CompactRIO devices found:
Windows Firewall is turned off.
packets 24 - 25: rescan cRIO imaging tool
packets 28 - 29: rescan cRIO imaging tool
packets 38 - end MAX running
There are several successful TCP connections made from the laptop to cRIO

I can also FTP into the cRIO from the attached laptop !!!

So I have a few recommendations for this issue:
1. Change the Gateway and DNS Server settings on the cRIO to 0.0.0.0 instead of 10.20.16.1. Then try the imaging tool.
2. Format the target in MAX by right clicking on the target and selecting "Format". Then select the option to "Attempt to restart into safe mode" and "Preserve the settings for all network adapters". After the reformat completes, try the imaging tool again.
3. The software wizard in MAX contains a lot of checks for communication. Expand the target in MAX, right-click on software, and select Add/Remove Software. Does the software wizrd initialize or does it throw a timeout error?
