Environment

Release : 9.x /20.x

Component : UIM - ROBOT

Resolution


UIM supports the minor version for a supported major version. Since SLES 15 is supported from robot-9.30, we will support all the minor versions as well.

In the above scenario tried to drag and drop the robot_update-9.30 or install_LINUX_23_64 (older version) onto the machine

Since, this is the first time support of SLES 15, the robot should be freshly installed locally through:
