R/WS access this means that the value is wrote only when drive is in STOP or fault ( not running). So this is a configuration parameter.

This means that this one should not be put on IO scanner of Ethernet or any cyclic write of any fieldbus.

If you do that the drive will never start, and still locked on NST.

So, to write RP, you should use messaging (not cyclic exchange), and be sure that the write request of RP=1 (to reset product) is sent one time , otherwise, the drive will continually reset.
