This may be obvious to others, but it certainly was not to me...
I wanted to configure devices on my remote PXI RT system, and I experienced the exact situation described above.
All the instructions and help I could find seemed to suggest that I should select the following menu item:
Tools >> NI-DAQ Configuration >> Remote DAQ Configuration...
But when I went there and entered the name or IP address of the Remote System, MAX couldn't find it. The PXI system was listed in the "Remote Systems" folder, and I could set up its networking parameters and software downloads from the "Remote Systems" folder.
It turns out the
key is to:
Now you can go back and select that original menu item (Tools >> NI-DAQ Configuration >> Remote DAQ Configuration...), specify the address, and (Behold!) there are those pesky remote devices.
(NOTE to NI... If this process is described anywhere in documents or help files relating to configuring devices on a remo
te RT PXI system I couldn't find it. Perhaps my trouble is that I've never used a PXI system or remote devices prior to trying to us LabVIEW Real-Time, but I'm probably not the only person in this situation.)
