Identifying a PXI Chassis Connected by a Third-Party Bridge
If your PXI system uses a third-party bridging solution, MAX cannot detect the presence of a PXI chassis automatically. To identify a PXI chassis connected by a third-party bridge, complete the following steps.
- Right-click the PXI System node (such as PXI System (...)) and select Show PXI Buses. Every PXI/PCI bus should now be displayed underneath your PXI system.
- Find the PXI bus node that represents the bus segment used for your PXI chassis backplane. If the missing PXI chassis spans multiple buses, select the bus that represents the first segment of that chassis backplane. Right-click the PXI bus and select Identify Bus as Chassis to create a new nonconfigured chassis for the PXI bus. Follow the procedures in Identifying a PXI Chassis to identify this new nonconfigured PXI chassis.
You can hide the PXI bus objects again by right-clicking the PXI System node and selecting Show PXI Buses to uncheck the option. By default, MAX does not show PXI buses in your PXI system.
