Immediately aborts all active tasks associated with a device, disconnects any routes, and returns the device to an initialized state. Aborting a task immediately terminates the currently active operation, such as a read or a write. Aborting a task puts the task into an unstable but recoverable state. To recover the task, use DAQmx Start to restart the task or use DAQmx Stop to reset the task without starting it.

This VI does not wait for the device to reset before continuing execution. When resetting a chassis, attached modules are unavailable. If you attempt to reset an attached module during this time, you will receive an error.
