I am using TCP/IP in LabVIEW to work with a VXI PC from a Sun Workstation. Sometimes the VXI Resource Manager gets a little lost and cannot talk to VXI instruments after a few errant calls. I have to stop a VXI Server software app on the PC, run the VXI Resource Manager from Max, and then restart the VXI Server software. Is there anyway to run VXI Resource Manager from command line or from LabVIEW? I searched around for it but could not find it. Thanks.
On a windows machine, Resman.exe is located in: C:\Program Files\National Instruments\VXI; on Linux it is in /usr/local/nainst/nivxi/bin and is simply called resman. Can you use the "find" or "locate" commands to find resman on the SUN machine? I think proper syntax would be:
find / -name resman
With the location information, I think you should be able to write a program on the VXI PC side which launches Resman programmatically.
If you have any further questions or have trouble, repost and we'll continue to explore it!
