Issue Details

I am trying to deploy an XNET Database to my real-time target from the XNET Database Utility;  however, I am receiving error NI-XNET: (0xBFF63101) File transfer communication with the LabVIEW Real-Time (RT) target failed.
How can I resolver this error ?


This error can wrongfully occur when there is a password set on a Linux RT target. This is a known issue and documented in corrective action request (CAR) 576222. 

If having a password on your RT target is required, you can deploy the XNET database programmatically to the RT target instead of using the XNET Database Utility. 

For more information on how to do deploy databases programmatically, please reference Managing RT in NI Example Finder. To find it, navigate to the Help tab in LabVIEW and select Find Examples >> Hardware Input and Output >> CAN >> NI-XNET >> Databases (Editing and Managing) >> Managing RT
