Does UIM have support for multihomed servers?

Environment

Release : 8.51

Component : UIM - ROBOT

Resolution

Generally, yes, but it depends what you mean by "support" - UIM can be installed on a machine with multiple IP's but can only bind to a single IP at a time.  The UIM robot will "Listen" on all available IP's by binding to 0.0.0.0 but for purposes of "sending" it can only be bound to a single network at once.

 

Additional Information

It is possible to install more than one robot on a single server and have each robot bound to a different IP:
