Not able to detect second PXI chassis which is connected to first chassis using MXI cards

Go to solution


I have 2 PXI chassis the first one is 1085 with 8115 controllers and 8364 MXI card, the second one is 1045 with PXI 8360 MXI card which is connected to 1085 chassis. I am trying to see both chassis and all cads in MAX, but I don't see 2nd chassis 1045 and related PXI cards I have in 1045 Chassis. 


I am using NI platform service 14.0

Are you certain that the MXI boards on both chassis are PXI, and not PXIe? Any possibility of testing this with other systems?

The issue is resolved after a power cycle.

The issue is resolved. As we have a master and slave PXI's. The slave needs to be turned on first.
