Problem installing robot on Linux server

  • 1.  Problem installing robot on Linux server

    I am attempting to install a robot on a Limux server. It gets to the point where it asks location of install files. I enter /nimsoftinstalls/ as I have many times, and it just repeats the request over and over. I am very light when it comes to linux so here is the information I have gathered.

     

    Server version

    Linux webfilemgr 2.6.32-36-generic-pae #79-Ubuntu SMP Tue 8 23:25:26 UTC 201

    1 i686 GNU/Linux

     

    Files I am using

    install_LINUX_23_64.zip

    nimldr.tar.Z

     

    I am not sure if there are different files for 64bit or if that even matters with Linux. But any help would be much appreciated.

    Make sure the ip and fqdn your setting the robot to is in /etc/hosts as this can cause problems if your using ip_alias or natting make sure the nat ip is in /etc/hosts not the public ip.

     

    I have seen that cause install failures and robot startup issues.

    It usually reports on IP issues in my experience. Usually when it just repeats the question, it fails to find the correct package for your OS.

     

    _64 is the package for 64-bit OS, one without _64 is for 32-bit.

     

    Also, I usualy check bitness with "getconf LONG_BIT", I find it to be the easiest way.

    Try the below command which can give additonal info of the correct package to use

    ./nimldr -Q

     

    In your case looks like you should use the install_LINUX_23.zip

     

    Also can try using the latest nimldr and install_linux packages on support site
