Issue/Introduction

We need to change the IP address of the CABI Server . 

Do you have a specific procedure ? For example , do we need to change reference to the CABI server in the DB ? 

Environment

Release :  UIM 9.x / 20.x

Component : UIM - CABI

Resolution

 
Note that it is not supported or recommended to change the Ip address of the robot server where the cabi probe is deployed.
 
Generally speaking for UIM we suggest all robots use static ip addresses.
 
This would require the server ip change, then follow the recommended procedure to correct the robot ip (once updated) and then perform a full clean up of cabi the following kbs will help
