I am able to use XNET driver's properly for Communication Area Network (CAN) communication to DUT ( Device Under Test ) now want to migrate to CAN with Flexible Data-Rate (CAN FD), Is it possible to do using XNET ?

This can be done by following basic steps for modifying the CAN dbc (CAN database file) for working with CAN-FD with help of NI-XNET Database Editor :
1.  Open NI-XNET Database Editor.   
2.  Select CAN Cluster and specify the I/O Mode to CAN FD
3Specify the FD Baud rate and Baud rate as per your application as shown in the below NI-XNET Database Editor:

NI-XNET Bus Monitor needs to be configured with the same setting as mentioned above.
