Hi, I have a compact rio I haven't used in a few months. In Labview 7.1 and since upgrading to 7.1.1, I can't connect to the compact rio. In MAX, I can see the crio device. When I open up the device, I get a VISA error under Devices and Interfaces . 0xBFFF00A7 (VI_ERROR_MACHINE_NAVAIL). I can't ftp or ping to the crio either. I have NI-RIO 1.2.
I connected to the crio console ....

I suggest you reset the IP address (with the HW switch) and connect to it using a crossover cable. Set the IP address to be static in MAX and make sure the subnet matches your host machine's. The easy way to do this is to use the "Suggest Values" button. Don't forget to set the HW switch back to off after you set the IP address in MAX. You may want to reinstall the SW to the cRIO controller also.
I noticed from the text that you sent that your cRIO controller has LabVIEW RT 7.1. Since you upgraded your host computer to LabVIEW 7.1.1, you will also need to upgrade the LabVIEW image on your controller to the same version. Try reinstalling the LabVIEW RT component into the cRIO controller (in MAX, under Remote Systems, under your cRIO >> Software), and just make sure that you select 7.1.1 as the version to reinstall. Most likely that is the problem.
Thanks for the Input. I changed the IP settings on the CRIO to DHCP, and everything started working. Apparently, when I use a Fixed IP, I don't have the subnet mask, Gateway and DNS settings correct, and it's causing networks errors that allow me to see the machine, but not work properly. The network settings are picker for the CRIO, then say, a dumb network device like a Ethernet to Serial Port Converter, which only needs an ip address. Setting a fixed ip address isn't enough on a complex corporate network.
