Issue Details

I want to programmatically reserve an Ethernet based cDAQ chassis from my LabVIEW application to use it with my host computer, without having to go into NI MAX before running the application to reserve it. How can I do this?

Solution

You need to use the Reserve Network Device VI found in the Measurement I/O --> DAQmx - Data Acquisition --> DAQmx Advanced --> DAQmx System Setup functions palette in LabVIEW. Specify which device you want to reserve on the device in input.
