Issue/Introduction

Question:

 

The Nimsoft robot RPM installation default directory is /opt. This is historically where the Nimsoft robot has been installed, but with the RPM is IT possible to install the robot in a directory other than /opt?

 

 Answer: 

 

Regardless of the directory for installation, the install must always be run as root to avoid problems later on. Also, the answer file 'nms-robot-vars.cfg' should still be placed in /opt.

To install into a non-standard directory run the following command: (arch is the architecture of the machine you are installing to x86 or x86_64)

 

rpm -ivh nimsoft-robot.[arch].rpm --prefix=[directory_name]

 

If there are no errors related to the failing of scripts and or the inability for the rpm to be installed in the specified directory then installation is successful.
