I have simulated PXI-2570 and PXI-2576 which we ordered for our new project. It will take few weeks to reach here. I have done all the routings with simulated one. Is it possible to copy the configured and saved routes to that PXI's MAX? If yes, what I need to do?
To deploy an NI Switch Executive configuration:
There are two different configuration files that need to be exported from the development computer to all target computers: the IVI configuration and the NI Switch Executive configuration.
To export the IVI configuration, copy IVIConfigurationStore.xml from the folder C:\Program Files\IVI\Data on the development computer to the target computer.
To export the NI Switch Executive configuration, right-click the Virtual Device in Measurement and Automation Explorer you want to export and select Export. Once the Switch Executive configuration file is copied to the target machine, simply create a new Virtual Device and point to the configuration file.
These instructions were taken from http://zone.ni.com/devzone/cda/tut/p/id/5809.
After following the above steps, you'll need to make the NI Switch Executive configuration use the real hardware devices instead of the simulated ones. To do this, just make the real hardware's logical names in the MAX IVI provider to the simulated device names you orignally used in the Switch Executive configuration.
Simulated Names Real Names
PXI1Slot2_ivi Dev1_ivi -> PXI1Slot2_ivi
PXI1Slot3_ivi Dev2_ivi -> PXI1Slot3_ivi
If you don't like the original simulated names, then to get NI Switch Executive to use new IVI Names requires using the Excel import export examples and changing the names in Excel:
You can export a new configuration to an Excel worksheet using the GenerateExcelReport.xls example. Once you’ve finished entering all desired aliases, hardwires, routes, route groups, etc. you can import the completed Virtual Device using the ImportFromExcel.xls example. Both of these Excel examples are installed with Switch Executive and can be found in the following directory: Start>>All Programs>>National Instruments>>Switch Executive>>Examples>>Excel
Again, these instructions were taken from http://zone.ni.com/devzone/cda/tut/p/id/5809.
I hope this helps you,
