Check Remote System Status Step

Use a Check Remote System Status step to determine whether LabVIEW is running on a remote computer and whether TestStand can connect to the remote computer.

Configuring the Step

Use the Check Remote System Status edit tab in the TestStand Sequence Editor and the Check Remote System Status Step Configuration dialog box in a TestStand User Interface to specify the remote system and the location to store the result of the system check.

Step Properties

In addition to the common custom properties, the Check Remote System Status step type defines the following step properties:

  • Step.RemoteHost—The computer name or IP address of the remote computer. The Step.RemoteHostByExpr property specifies whether the step interprets this property value as an expression or as a string.
  • Step.RemoteHostByExpr—When this property is True, the step interprets the Step.RemoteHost property value as an expression. When this property is False, the step interprets the value as a string.
  • Step.PortNumber—The remote host port number.
  • Step.Timeout—The number of seconds to wait to connect to the remote computer.
  • Step.ServerCheckExpr—Specifies where to store a Boolean value that indicates whether the remote computer check passed.
