Issue Details

How can I detect cRIO-9803 for Linux-based cRIO controller in NI MAX?


For Linux-based LabVIEW Real-Time targets NI recommends using the Linux ext4 file system for mass storage devices.
In order to detect cRIO-9803 in NI MAX, you have to format and partition it as ext4 file system. Once done, you can detect cRIO-9803 under the cRIO target in NI MAX.

Additional Information

The format and partition process can be done through PuTTY or using the cRIO terminal (connecting a monitor and keyboard). In either option, you must have admin rights for this process. You can check the current user using the whoami command. If you are logged as a different user than admin (i.e. lvuser)then you can use the su admin command to change to the admin user.
