"ConfigureHMC7044" error when programming the AD9081 + ADS9 with ACE?

Whenever I program the AD9081 with the ADS9, it doesn't go through due to a failure to configure the HMC7044 on the eval board (error below).

This error didn't come up before and I was able to program the board several times successfully. This error started coming up more frequently and now comes up every time I try to program the device. Why does this happen and are there any workarounds?

The same question has come up before (https://ez.analog.com/wide-band-rf-transceivers/mixed-signal-front-ends-mxfe/f/q-a/167737/ad9081-fmca-ebz-and-ads9-v2ebz), but the answer is unclear.
