Initialize Session VI Returns Error -2147220598 When Run From Pharlap or VxWorks Target With Non-Default Admin Password.
When running the Initialize Session VI from the System Configuration palette on a Pharlap or VxWorks device, you will receive error -2147220598: "The username or password is incorrect" if the admin account does not have a blank password.
Workaround: Do not set a non-blank admin password, disable LabVIEW Project Access on the device and run the Initialize Session VI from a host PC, or use an NI Linux RT device if you require a non-blank admin password.
NI MAX System Settings page doesn't populate when all host network adapters are disabled.
On any system that either has no network adapters, or has all network adapters disabled, the Systems Settings page in NI MAX for My System does not populate.
Workaround: Enable a network adapter on the machine.
NI System Configuration installer does not include header files on Linux.
When installing NI System Configuration a Linux machine the System Configuration header files (i.e. nisyscfg.h) are not installed on the machine.
Workaround: Contact technical support at ni.com/support for a copy of the header file.
NI-VISA Trigger Bus Query Property is not supported by NI System Configuration API.
NI-VISA allowed users to query for the PXI Trigger Bus number using the instrument session handle but there is no similar functionality in the NI System Configuration API.
NI I/O Trace crashes when capturing API function calls that contain long strings.
Capturing API calls in NI I/O Trace that pass strings in excess of 512 bytes in certain cases and in excess of 1024 bytes in other cases causes NI I/O Trace to crash when the "Buffer Limit per Parameter" setting is set to "Large Buffer (Maximum size: 64k bytes)."
Workaround: From the NI I/O Trace Options dialog set the "Buffer Limit per Parameter" setting to "Small buffer (Maximum size: 64 bytes)." This is the default setting and will result in only the first and last 32 bytes of data being recorded. The additional string contents will be lost from the capture.
