I have one SCXI-1127 (4X8) switch and two SCXI-1129 (4X64) switchs in my system. I have instrumentation connected to the rows of the SCXI-1127. The columns of the SCXI-1127 are connected to the rows of the SCXI 1129's via hardwires. For each row of the SCXI-1127 that I try to connect to a unique column of a SCXI-1129, Switch Executive auto-routes through column-0 of the SCXI-1127. This causes an error when I try to build a route group because I have multiple routes using column-0 of the SCXI-1127.
Is there a way for me to specify which column of the SCXI-1127 gets used when specifying a route?
To better answer your question, what version of NI Switch Executive are you using? Also, please clarify the following statement "for each row of the SCXI-1127 that I try to connect to a unique column on a SCXI-1129, Switch Executive auto-routes through column-0" what steps are you taking to create these connections?
I'm using Switch Executive version 3.0. I solved my problem by reserving for connections the rows and colums connected to the hardwires. Then I edited the connection routes to avoid conflicts when multiple routes were grouped together.
