Issue/Introduction

There are a number of packages that are needed for functionality, and yet once deployed, they do not show up in either the IM or Admin Console. This provides a method to see all of the packages deployed to a robot and their details such as version and build.

Resolution

Via IM console 

Select the robot -> select controller -> double click or right click Configure to open the GUI interface -> choose Status -> Installed packages > there will be a popup with the list of installed packages and click the + to the left of a package to expand and display all of the details.

 

Via Admin Console 

Select the robot -> Installed Packages -> click the export icon, the 'square with the arrow' -> it will be saved to disk in the naming format of InstalledPackage_xxxxx.csv containing:

"Package","Version","Build Number","Description"

 

 

Via PU command. 

pu -u <UIM administrator account name> -p <UIM administrator account password> <UIM robot address>controller inst_list > inst.txt

Example:
pu -u administrator -p Hello /9.2-DOM/P_hub/oldcabi/controller inst_list_summary > oldcabi-inst.txt

Or use inst_list if the complete details are desired. 

 

Additional Information

The list of packages displayed is maintained local at the robot in:  
$\Nimsoft\robot\pkg\inst\installed.pkg
