CAUSE

This behavior is the result of a known issue in the Agilent Instrument Control Framework Support v2.2 software when the Equilibrate function is used in a sample set method.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

If you select the Equilibrate function in a sample set method, an abort error message can appear
in the message center after the sample set starts and the Equilibrate run time completes. The
abort state is transitory and does not stop a sample set from running. You can ignore the message.
