What is the Auto-Resman Feature of the VXI-USB?


The Auto-Resman feature runs Resman automatically each time a new VXI controller is detected.

Additional Information

It is disabled by default and the user has to set Resman manually. To enable it:
  1. Open MAX (Measurement and Automation Explorer)
  2. Navigate to Tools» NI-VXI» VXI Options...
  3. Check the box Run Auto VXI Resource Manager in system tray
Once the Automatic Resource Manager is enabled, a hot-plugged NI VXI-USB will automatically run and configure Resman on your VXI system.
