A Data Electronics Datataker Data Logger (using the Citect DATATAKR driver) will not come online, or comes online and soon after goes offline with the error "Data Not Yet Valid".  A full debug of a port experiencing the problem is done by setting the following parameters in the citect.ini file:


DebugStr=* all


It is found that with the full debug settings the syslog.dat file contains the message "ConfigErr" at regular intervals.  What does this mean?


This problem is probably due to the DATATAKR driver receiving some unsolicited messages for a port.  This may be because the Datalogger is emitting data for schedules other than the immediate (X) schedule.  The Datalogger should not be configured to emit data for schedules other than for the immediate schedule.
