Question:
How to change the IP address of a Robot or Hub?
Environment:
UIM: all versions
Answer:
To change the IP or robot or hub:

1. Stop the UIM robot or hub
2. Navigate to your UIM install folder.
3. Open \Nimsoft\robot.cfg file.
4. Edit the line robotip: with the new ip.
5. Start the robot/hub service.


 
Additional Information:
If the above does not work and the ip reverts back to the original. That means that the new IP can't be selected with the current network card. To select a new network card you must reinstall the robot/hub. The option to select a new network card is only available at install. It can't be edit once installed, as its hard coded.
