cRIO Device Alias

Is it possible to derive the IP address from a cRIO alias name that appears in a cRIO device ring control?

Are you trying to determine the IP address from a remote machine?


Real-Time Target System Replication has a vi that can find all RT targets.  Its called "Find All".

That did the trick, thanks.  I am working on a Configuration Management Utility that will allow me to manage a distributed system with 9 cRIO targets.  I want to have

a ring control to allow the user to select any cRIO on the network.  I need to obtain the IP address so that config files can be ftp'd to the target of choice.

One thing I did notice about the Find All Targets vi is that the 'Status' Field does not seem to be working.  It always contains

the Model Name instead of the actual status.

Thanks for reporting this. We have added it to be fixed in the System Replication tools (#127669). In the mean time the RT Ping Controllers VI (Real-Time palette) does return the status information and can be used to get a list of current RT targets on the network. It does not return quite as much other information as the Find All Targets VI.
