Issue Details

I use USRP-2953R connected to the host system via Ethernet using the SFP+ port.
The USRP is shown in USRP Configuration Utility but is not shown on the SystemDesigner in LabVIEW NXG.

Solution

It is the expected result.
If you connect an USRP to the host system with the ethernet cable, your USRP is not shown in NI-MAX. The Live panel of SystemDesigner in LabVIEW NXG detects devices detected by NI-MAX. NI-MAX only detects USRP as a RIO device when you connect it by using the MXI interface.
