Introduction:
We have many robots (Windows and Linux) where we want to move them to our new domain.
Is there a way to script this without uninstalling the Nimsoft from each robot?
Background:
This is something that may be helpful for a lab environment.  It is not recommended to do this in a production environment without substantial prior testing and validation.
Environment:
UIM 8.51
 
Instructions:
1- Using IM Console, select one of the robots you want to move.

2- Locate the "controller" probe and drag it to the Archive.
    You will be prompted with  dialogue box.

3- Change to "Configuration Only" (if not already checked).
     Rename the package.

Be mindful of whether the original cfg file had hubdomainname, you may also need to include that.
Save the package.

6- Drag the new package to the robot you want to move to the new domain.

7- Look for the robot on the new domain.

Please note you may need to "Remove Robot" on the robot in the original domain.
