Issue:

The file size of robot.cfg is zero

Environment:
UIM
Cause:

This happens if the server was unexpectedly shutdown i.e. not a normal clean shutdown. We have also seen this problem where the /opt filesystem becomes full and the robot cfg is unable to be written out. 

A rarer occurrence involved the anti virus program interfering with the nimsoft processing

Resolution:

1) Stop the robot 

2) Copy the robot.cfg file from a working robot machine and paste in to the problematic robot machine and check the Robot name and ip address in the robot.cfg file and save it 

3)Restart the robot
