Setting Up a SystemLink Client for NI Linux Real-Time Targets

Last Modified: March 28, 2019

Install and configure SystemLink Client to establish a connection between your SystemLink server and an NI Linux Real-Time target with LabVIEW.

Before setting up a client, install SystemLink Server and LabVIEW 2017 on your NI Linux Real-Time server.
  1. On your NI Linux Real-Time server, launch NI MAX.
  2. Ensure the firmware on the target is 4.0 or higher and that the date and time are correct.
  3. In NI MAX, deploy SystemLink Client and any additional software support your application requires to your Linux RT target.
  4. Under SystemLink Settings, ensure the Minion ID and Server are correct.
  5. Launch and log in to NI SystemLink Web Application.
  6. Click Systems Manager»Pending Systems.
  7. Click Approve next to the name of the target. The target is now a client connected to your SystemLink server. You can manage the client in NI SystemLink Web Application under Systems Manager»Managed Systems.

    The image below shows an example list of clients connected to a server.

  8. Optional: If you want to prevent actions such as installing software or restarting from executing on your client, select the client in Managed Systems and click More»Lock. These jobs will now be queued and will not execute until the system is unlocked. You can view all jobs, including those that are currently queued, under History.
