The root cause of this problem is that, to deploy the system definition file, we need to see a TCP connection to the NI VeriStand RT engine. The steps above try to ensure that the engine is properly installed and not in an unknown or corrupted state.
When you install the NI VeriStand RT engine on a system properly, you will see NI VeriStand RT engine launch as soon as the RT system is booted. This can be seen on the console out
screen of the RT system.
