Issue Details

I have a PXI Chassis with several cards in it. I have set the names of the cards in NI MAX. When I power cycle my chassis, the cards always show up as a default or unpredicted name. Is this expected behavior? Is there a way to fix this?


This is not expected behavior. It may be caused by hardware corruption.

The quickest workaround for this will be to rename the cards and chassis when the chassis is power cycled. This can be done programatically using something similar to this example.
