Issue Details

I had been using my SCXI chassis previously but, while configuring it, I lost connection to my modules and am getting Error -200073: SCXI module specified in the hardware configuration was not found. How do I fix this?


1. Make sure that your configuration settings are correct. If your address in your configuration window in MAX does not match your chassis address, you will get this error. 

2. This error can also be caused by a blown fuse in your chassis. For information on how to check your fuses, see SCXI Fuse Information.

3. Make sure that your adapter module is working, bent pins and faulty connections to the backplane adapter can also cause this issue.
