Issue Details

I have an NI Waveform Generator like the 5402 in a MXI controlled PXI chassis and I receive the following error in both NI MAX and LabVIEW:

Error -200221:
The Amount of Time allocated to perform this operation was exceeded.


This error is most likely due to a MXI communication problem.  Try the following steps.
