Issue:

 

The robot is not binding to the robotip set in robot.cfg

 

Environment:  

 

Robot: 7.7x

Applicable to all operating systems

 

Cause: 

 

In some situations the robot may not be able to find that the ip address is a correct address. You will see the following in the log

Specified IP (10.250.129.80) is not recognized as a local ip. No IP change, using 10.98.48.252

 

Resolution:

 

Simply edit the systems hosts file to include the ip address and fully qualified domain name and then restart the robot. The error message should disappear.
