Cause:
Trying to control or start the drive using Somove the error message "The command is already active in another channel " comes up. 

Resolution
Check your Command status to see if HMI is the reference or command.  On the ATV61 Drive check the F4 function key to see if you are in LOC or REM mode.  If you are in LOC mode you will need to put the drive in REM mode before you can control it over Somove.
