What do you want to do?

Task Action
Update the application on one or more devices to the latest version uploaded to NI InsightCM Server. Select one or more online devices and click the Update Application button. The NI InsightCM web application disables this button for offline devices.
Tip   This operation requires devices to reboot and might take several minutes to complete.
Return the device application running on the physical device to the application version that ran on the device before it was added to NI InsightCM Server. This is useful if you want to repurpose a device such that the configuration you have performed is no longer relevant for the physical device, such as when you move the device to a new location. You can also use this option to disconnect a device from NI InsightCM Server. Select a device, and then select Reset to Factory Default from the Action menu .
See if a more recent version of an application is available. For a specific device, compare the Configured Version and Latest Version columns in the device table to see if a more recent application version is available on the server.
Troubleshoot persistent errors with the device operation. Select a device, and then select Format Device from the Action menu . You can also request this action as an alternative to resetting a device to the default application if a third-party developed support for the device.
Change settings in a device configuration, such as sample rates, channel properties, and what channels make up a data group. Double-click a device in the table to open its Device Configuration page.
