PCI-MXI interface failure

I have two PCI-MXI-2 interface cards 1 and 2 and two machines A B following are the results:
A2 works
A1 resman hangs
B2 works
B1 resman hangs

I think this implicates interface card 1. This card is about 15 months old. The serial number may be D32483. How can I get a working card?

Dear Doman,

Before you have this card repaired or replaced, I recommend you try to restore the EEPROM with the factory settings. I have attached a tutorial that will explain setting the EEPROM.

If restoring the EEPROM does not solve your problem, then you will need to send this board into National Instruments for repair. Please visit www.ni.com/support to generate a phone support request. You can then call in and speak with an Applications Engineer who can RMA your board.

Thanks for your feedback. However the instructions in the Word document are for Windows, I am running Linux.

Do you have similar instructions that use resources that are available on Linux?

Doman,

Here is another document that includes instructions for non-Linux operating systems.

David, thanks again for your quick reply.

Just for others who may be following this thread, the referenced document includes instructions for Linux, and other operating systems.

May I suggest that you consider another format for these documents. Linux doesn't have MS Word and Staroffice doesn't display this document very well, although it printed adequately. You might consider Adobe Acrobat, as it works well for Linux and Windows, IMHO.

Thanks again.

I'm glad the documents helped. They are in the process of being added to the NI Developer Zone as a tutorial. Once they are placed on the Developer Zone, they will be viewable with any web browser.
