Resetting the NIM state
To return a machine to the ready state, use the NIM reset operation.
The operations performed using NIM can be very complex. To help ensure that the operations can be completed successfully, NIM requires that a machine be in the ready state before operations can be run on it. While an operation is being performed, the state of the machine will reflect the current operation. After the operation completes, the machine returns to the ready state.
If an operation on a machine is interrupted, the machine state may continue to reflect the operation. If this occurs, the machine must be reset to the ready state before performing any further operations. To return a machine to the ready state, use the NIM reset operation.
