Finally back to working on this project. Got Linux Mint 19 working, 7i92 to 7i77 to 7i84 all powered up. Tried to set up an initial configuration with nothing connected to the boards except power and Ethernet between the different cards and the computer. Got the ether net set up and pinged with no issues. I did have to move the 7i92 W6 jumper to the up position to establish communication. I got a successful ping. I left it there and changed the Ethernet address in pncconf to 10.10.10.10 and choose some basic settings that I would be using and completed the wizard. I did get a no hm2 files found at the beginning of pncconf. I was also unable to check the mesaflash:
mesaflash --device 7i92 --addr 10.10.10.10 --readhmid

I started LCNC and got the following message that i attached as a report. I followed the directions for the Mesa ethernet setup for 7i92, 7i96, 7i76E and other ethernet Mesa boards. and even tried Big Johns method here. However I was unable to edit the file as it was read only.

Any help would be appreciated at this point.

Nothing attached.
And use ONLY one of the above tutorials, never both.
Also paste the ping times and what does
ip a
say ?

The address is wrong in the ini file, it is looking for 192.168.1.121

Still getting an error. I had changed the address again in the process of trying to do everything over. Here is the file with the issues.

Also noticed during the pcconf wizard that it would not allow me to change the encoders off of "mux encoder" not sure if thats right or not.

What does
mesaflash --device 7i92 --addr 10.10.10.10 --readhmid
say ?
Now you have 6 encoders set, but only 1 is available, so we need to know what firmware is installed.
In the meantime, you can change the port that the 7i77 is connected to and try again.

mesaflash --device 7i92 --addr 10.10.10.10 --readhmid

:mesaflash: command not found"

Not sure what you mean by change the port the 7i77 is connected to. Its plugged directly into the 7i92, I dont have the cabling to use the other port on the 7i92.

oh cr@p ! :)
I have over 20 of them so i thought you might have at least 1. Moving on
try
sudo mesaflash --device 7i92 --addr 10.10.10.10 --readhmid
see if it works.
Might not be installed at all, so
github.com/LinuxCNC/mesaflash
and some issues you may encounter

Same response with the sudo. I could be wrong but my understanding was the 7i92 came with some basic firmware for most of the cards pre-installed. If they didn't then that is definitely my problem.

After a very long summer work season I think things are calming down enough to get back to this project.

I was able to download mesaflash, install and verify the firmware to the 7i92. I got good results from mesaflash --device 7i92 --addr 10.10.10.10 --readhmid

I had an error saying I was missing the firmware from lib/firmware/hm2 so I extracted the 7i92.zip to that location and the error went way.

I know get this attached error
