    Hi Team,

    I found a secondary hub server in our environment that is inactive. Later, I found out that the <nimsoft_directory>/nimsoft/hub/hub was gone and I can't find it in any directory. I don't know who, when or how it was removed from the linux server. Is there a way I can fix this without re-installing the the whole robot and hub?

    Hi John

    If you dont have backup available of the hub folder only option is to reinstall again the hub on that server

    Depending on your configuration your hub.cfg has hub specfic info as well as tunnel and queue setup which is unique to that hub so might might not work if not properly configured

    A full restore from backup or new install is the only supported way to fix this

    If it's your concern, a new "full install" will merge with what's there already and only overwrite the hub, controller, hdb, spooler, and distsrv locations. Generally speaking any modifications to these five probes will be kept unless it's something that's required to be a specific way in order for the probe to start.

    If you've installed additional probes, they should be left unchanged.

    Thanks Garin! Will try this one. I'll keep a backup of original files to make sure
