BQ40Z50EVM-561: Difficulties discharging cells

Part Number: BQ40Z50EVM-561
Other Parts Discussed in Thread: BQ40Z50, BQSTUDIO

I am attempting to discharge a 12.6V 7500mAh battery pack using this board in preparation for a learning cycle. However, when I attach a low value resistor that would allow a C/10 discharge rate, the bq40z50 seems to go into a protective state disconnecting from bqstudio and closing the power FETS. 

1. Is this due to a short circuit / overload protection being triggered?

2. What would be the best way to go about achieving a proper discharge with this board, such as settings I should change in bq40z50 to achieve a proper discharge?
