Need the steps to re-validate a probe using the pu (probe utility) command
This has to be executed in 2 steps:
1. pu -u administrator -p controller probe_verify
2. pu -u administrator -p controller probe_activate
Open a command window and change directory to the 'bin' folder to run the command.
C:\Program Files (x86)\Nimsoft\bin>pu -u administrator -p <password for UIM administrator> controller probe_verify hdb
C:\Program Files (x86)\Nimsoft\bin>pu -u administrator -p <password for UIM administrator> controller probe_activate hdb
Note: the above is used when the pu tool is making the change at the local system. If it is to update at a remote robot the full UIM (NimBUS) path must be used, and it is case-sensitive.
This can be found in the IM console by selecting the target robot and it will be shown as the Address for controller. Example: /uim_domain/hub_2/robot_dev/controller
Be sure the user (if not administrator) has the correct ACL's:
You need to enable 'Basic Management' in the user's ACL
This is how validation works:
When a probe is distributed to a robot, the controller creates a magic_key which is a combination of the robotname and the checksum of the probe's binary (stored in the controller.cfg).
When the robot starts up, the controller will validate this magic_key for the probes that will be allowed to be started.
To correct any Validation Errors, you have to validate the probe manually:
(Select the probe and choose rt-click->Security->Validate->Yes).
...or via the pu command if necessary
