Issue Details

I am seeing a resource reserved error when I add in a RTSI cable between the two PCIe 6353 cards and I try running two DAQmx task with multiple channels. I checked the device routes in MAX, and it suggest that there should not be an issue.

Error -89137 occurred at an unidentified location
Possible reason(s):
Specified route cannot be satisfied, because it requires resources that are currently in use by another route
.


Solution

In order to get around this error, make sure to use the same DAQmx reference clock for both tasks instead of a DAQmx sample clock. Here is an example of the setup for M series devices, but it can also be used for this case. If using LabWindows/CVI™ then be sure to use the Refclk_Src and Refclk_Rate commands.
