sbrio 9651 boot problem

Solved!
Go to solution

Hi,

 

We have an issue about sbrio 9651 boot unstability. When we power up the system approx. 1 of 4 boot hangs at different levels. 3 of 4 are successful.

 

We checked the "console out" and boot hanging levels mostly related on

1. "Started NI Started Variable Engine: done".

2. "Daemonizing... Writing process ID to "/var/run/runlvrt.pid"

 

Our configuration as follows:

 

- Labview 2020 SP1

- Labview 2020 SP1 Real-time

- NI Compact RIO 2022 Q3 drivers

- sbrio9651 firmware version: 22.8.0

- Startup application with Ethercat and network shared variables deployed.

- socketed clip is used.

 

Thank you.

Hi again,

 

We narrow down the problem to EtherCAT slaves. When we unplug the EtherCAT connection, no boot problem occurs. After plugging, "i2c" timeout frequently pop-up, and occasionally boot hangs. Any help would be nice. Thank you.

 

Below is console out related with pluging the EtherCAT slaves (at this attempt, boot is finished):

Hi again,

 

So we talked this issue about our local representative and they forward this issue to NI R&D. So right now, we solved the issue in other way. 2 messages ago we mention that if we unplug the etherCAT cable out, sbRIO boots normally. We go over this phenomena, and power up our related slaves after sbRIO boots up. This action, solved the booting and manage to connect all slaves as normal.

 

Beyond this solution, we will upgrade our all softwares, drivers and etc. to 2023 and we will check again. 

 

Thanks.
