Subject: Help Request: Setting up NIXI-1042/NI-MXI-4/DXP-XMAP with dxpStandalone_2-10

Hello,

I'm trying to make 2 DXP-XMAP "cards" available via Epics.

I have mostly duplicated an almost identical setup that Nino configured for us that was using 1 DXP-XMP.

Everything seems to be set up correctly, but I can't see the PV's via caget or an medm interface.

Below is the output of running the batchfile sets up the environment and starts cygwin-x86\dxpApp.exe 8element.cmd Any ideas would be very much appreciated.

The biggest oddity I'm seeing is that it seems like there are no values for most of the PVs when its restoring from last saved state. Do I need to set these from scratch or are there default values?

Please send any responses to ehle@iit.edu as well as the list as I am not a regular subscriber.

Output Follows:
