Issue Details

I recently purchased one of the NI HDD-826x RAID arrays and would like to use it with my PXI Express Real-Time system. Does the Real-Time operating system have support for an NI HDD-826x?


The driver required to use the NI HDD line of RAID arrays (like the NI HDD-8260, HDD-8261, HDD-8263, HDD-8264, HDD-8265, and HDD-8266) only supports Windows operating systems and there is no support for Real-Time Operating Systems at this time. 

Additional Information
