Resolve Machine Alias Details

The Resolve Machine Alias VI returns the network address of the machine alias specified in the LabVIEW project .aliases file. This .aliases file is automatically updated with mappings that you specify in the LabVIEW project. You can extend the set of mappings in the .aliases file. If you extend the mappings of the .aliases file and you check the LabVIEW project into source control, then you also need to check the .aliases file into source control.
