SICL-LAN issue, old PNA (E8358A), NI-MAX only recognizes hpib7 not hpib7,16

Question asked by pjobson on Feb 5, 2014
Hi,

NI Max only allows me to create a Network Device as "TCPIP0::172.16.0.13::hpib7::INSTR" not "TCPIP0::172.16.0.13::hpib7,16::INSTR" as expected for this machine.

SICL is enabled with address 16

Using the visa test panel for a *IDN?\n command results in:

Write Operation (*IDN?\n)
Error

VISA:  (Hex 0xBFFF0060) The interface associated with this session is not currently the controller in charge.

The PNA has firmware updated to A.06.04.32

Any ideas as to what is going on and how to fix?

Thanks
