Issue Details

I am using the Replication and Deployment (RAD) Utility to deploy an image to my Linux Real-Time target.
When I include a file from the temp folder in the blacklist, I get an error.


Move the file that you want to blacklist to either of these directories before deploying the image:
  • /home/webserv¬†
  • /home/lvuser

Additional Information

If you want to edit or create new folders and files on your NI Linux Real-Time target, you can do so only in the following directories:
  • /home/webserv
  • /home/lvuser
  • /tmp
Several key application settings including image settings are stored in the "temp" folder and blacklisting a file in this directory can cause an error on deployment.
