Issue Details

I am troubleshooting my MXI interface following the MXI Troubleshooting Guide and the NI MXI-Express BIOS Compatibility Software Readme and I don't know if the DIP Switches on my MXI interface are in their default positions.


All the DIP Switches should in the OFF position by default.

Additional Information

The MXI Compatibility and Connectivity Troubleshooting Guide prompts you to set the DIP switch  1 to the ON position in the scenarios where the NI MXI-Express BIOS Compatibility Software is recommended to be installed. Do not set any other switch to the ON position.
