Need to know hot to effectively decommission UIM robots in bulk and ensure that Robot Inactive alarms for those same robots do not persist. Currently when we use the pu command to remove a robot, within 2-3 days the Robot Inactive alarm returns and the robot can be seen under the hub in the Navigation window in IM as well as under the hub->Robots Tab.
<p>- leftover references to the robot</p><p>- robot stays cached in its hub's robot.sds file</p>
<p> Release : 9.1.0</p><p> Component : UIM - ROBOT
<p>Aside from this recommended process outlined in the KB Article below:</p> <p><strong>How to delete robots in UIM when a VM with a robot has been powered off/decommissioned</strong></p> <p><a href="https://ca-broadcom.wolkenservicedesk.com/external/article?articleId=117796" target="_blank" rel="noopener">https://ca-broadcom.wolkenservicedesk.com/external/article?articleId=117796</a></p> <p>And considering the fact that you could already be currently running a probe utility command to remove master devices by the cs keys,</p> <p>You should also remove the robot from the hub, and you can do this via command(s). Unfortunately you cannot list more than one robot at a time to be removed from a hub but you can duplicate the command for each machine, or script it and read in a file with a list of decommissioned robots and use variable replacement of some kind for the robot hostnames to be decommissioned.</p> <p>Here is an example command:</p> <p>C:\Program Files (x86)\Nimsoft\bin>pu.exe -u administrator -p xxxxxxxx /abctest000523_domain/abctest000523_hub/abctest000523/hub removerobot daabc04-xxx</p> <p>Sep 6 10:43:58:447 pu: SSL - init: mode=0, cipher=DEFAULT, context=OK</p> <p>Sep 6 10:43:58:448 pu: nimCharsetSet() - charset=</p> <p>======================================================</p> <p>Address: /abctest000523_domain/abctest000523_hub/abctest000523/hub Request: removerobot</p> <p>======================================================</p> <p>In the hub GUI you can then Refresh the view to confirm the robot disappears. It should also be gone from the IM Navigation window in IM on the left-side.</p>
If for some reason the above process doesn't stop the robot inactive alarms from showing up, despite the robot being decommissioned, and the robot has been removed from the hub, and the callback executed, make sure the niscache and robot.sds file has been removed from the robot.
