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 of the driver. Note: The Readme is located on the driver download page  .
If you try all of the steps above and your device still fails self-test, please contact NI Technical Support.
