Issue Details

I started using my myRIO and I tried to change the name of the myRIO in the wizard. It told me it could not change the name and to contact support.

Solution

To resolve this, follow the steps:
  1. Open NI Measurement and Automation Explorer (NI MAX).
  2. From the left panel, go under Remote Systems and find your NI myRIO and click it.
  3. In the right window, click the Hostname field and edit it to be the name you want.
  4. Click Save.
  5. This will prompt you to restart your myRIO. Click Yes.
  6. Your myRio will restart and will have the updated name.
