David,

I suspect the problem could be hinted at in these messages:

save_restore: connect failed for channel 'XMAP_med1:EnableClientWait'
save_restore: connect failed for channel 'XMAP_med1:mca1.CALO'
errlog = 611 messages were discarded
save_restore: connect failed for channel 'XMAP_med1:mca4.R3HI'
save_restore: connect failed for channel 'XMAP_med1:mca4.R3IP'
save_restore: connect failed for channel 'XMAP_med1:mca4.R3NM'
save_restore: connect failed for channel 'XMAP_med1:mca4.R4LO'
save_restore: connect failed for channel 'XMAP_med1:mca4.R4HI'
save_restore: connect failed for channel 'XMAP_med1:mca4.R4IP'

It looks like maybe your 8element.template file, which is not included
in your message, is using a different PV prefix than the save/restore is
expected, and perhaps different from what your medm screens are
expecting.

I wrote that dxp software, so I can probably help figure it out.  Are
you at the APS?  If so I can come down and take a look.

Mark

Subject: Help Request: Setting up NIXI-1042/NI-MXI-4/DXP-XMAP
withdxpStandalone_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:
