Changing Host Name of cRIO in NI MAX

Updated May 3, 2018

Issue Details

When I change the host name of my cRIO (CompactRIO) under System Settings and reboot the cRIO, the IP address changes from the static IP address that I have set to a different IP address. How do I change the host name of my cRIO without altering the static IP address that I have configured? 

Solution

Instead of resetting the cRIO in NI MAX (Measure and Automation Explorer), you can change the host name and simply click Refresh in NI MAX. This will successfully change the the host name of the cRIO without changing the IP address, and does not require a reboot of the cRIO.
