Issue Details

I have a NI-XNET device and it fails the self-test in NI Measurement & Automation Explorer (MAX) with error: 
(Hex 0xBFF63001) An internal error occurred in the NI-XNET driver.


These error codes indicate fairly general problems that can be caused by either hardware or software. You can resolve these errors through one of the troubleshooting steps below:
  • Reset the device in Measurement & Automation Explorer, then try the self-test again.
  • Reregister your XNET aliases in NI-XNET Database Editor by deleting the aliases and registering the dbc/xml again
  • Reboot the PC or PXI controller.
  • Remove and reinstall the device.
  • Try a different PCI or PXI slot.
  • Update the driver to the latest version that supports your application development environment and operating system. This information can also be found within the readme documentation for each version, which you can find on the NI-XNET download page or the NI-XNET Release Notes .
If you try all of the steps above and your device still fails self-test, please contact NI Technical Support.
