Errors such as the following would appear in the nimldr.log:
Mar 24 13:45:34:624 nimldr: Could not figure out what HP-UX version you are running!
Mar 24 13:45:34:624 nimldr: Could not figure out what operating system you are running!
This error may occur if the hostname of the HP-UX system is more than 8 characters long, and the kernel tuning parameters on the system are not set to allow this.
To resolve this, run the following command as root just prior to running nimldr:
kctune -B uname_eoverflow=0
This will allow nimldr to proceed and successfully install the robot without a change to a shorter hostname.
