You must add your BC96 and DSP to the NI-VXI configuration using the NI-VXI configuration editor before running RESMAN then, finally, ABCDAQ. You should also increase the user window from its default setting of 32KB. For one BC96 and DSP 128KB is more than adequate, but I erred on the side of caution....
If you have a BICC VERO VME crate and you cannot get the MXI-2-VME card to work in slot 1, try taking off the jumpers at the left hand side of the backplane: certainly works for me. (Thanks to Neil Falconer of RAL Technology Department for this top tip!!)
N.B. if your DSP card is at base address 0x80000, BC96 must be moved from its default base address of 0xD0000 otherwise it will clash with the DSP. I moved BC96 to 0x20000, where the system works reliably.
