At this point, your CompactRIO controller should be configured with a valid IP address and the correct software should be installed on your development computer. The status light on your CompactRIO controller should blink twice repeatedly. This indicates that a valid IP address is assigned, but there is no software installed on the controller.
If you have a controller running the NI Linux Real-Time OS, you may be asked to log in to your controller to gain access. At this time, use the default admin username and blank password.
If you interrupt the software installation process, the CompactRIO controller will likely be in an unusable state and you will have to reformat the hard drive and go through the installation process again. If you receive an error during installation, repeat this process. If you repeatedly receive errors while attempting to install, ensure that you have properly completed the network configuration process.
Congratulations! Your CompactRIO system is now operational. Now walk through the steps for connecting your sensors and verifying the connections.
