We need to ability to stop/start the probe using the pu command but when we execute the  S and  _stop commands against the probe, the probe starts up again.

What command can we use to stop or start a probe?


When the stop command is passed to the probe, the probe will trigger a stop on itself but controller, as part of its general check, starts up the probe since the probe status is active (active = yes) in the in the controller.cfg).


Release : 20.3

Component : UIM - ROBOT


To stop the probe:

pu -u administrator -p MyPassword /uimdomain/hub/myrobot/controller probe_deactivate cdm

To start the probe:

pu -u administrator -p MyPassword /uimdomain/hub/myrobot/controller probe_activate cdm
