At my workplace, I have to work with Orchestrator and various Robots installed on virtual machines.
I’m not the person who made the original installations of the Orchestrator and the Robots. I don’t really have documentation to understand what has been done in the past. The people who did it are gone.
I ran some tests to understand things, and I’m quite confused.
The most significant information I have is an Excel file with all the installed bots, the type of bot, the VM where it is installed, and the licence keys.
So i went to a VM with only an attended bot installed.
From the UiPath documentation, I was expecting that this bot wouldn’t be able to run behind a locked screen.
However, I ran locally a package, locked the Windows session, unlocked, and it was still running.
I thought, maybe the robot doesn’t abort, but just pauses itself.
So I did the test again, only this time with a process that generates a log message every second. I locked the Windows session, unlocked, and checked the log messages. There wasn’t any pause, there was a log message every second, even when the screen was locked.
So what’s up with this ? Either the information in the Excel file is wrong (the bot actually is unattended), or the screen lock is not really a screen lock ? I used the Ctrl+Alt+Suppr button on the top menu of the VM. What do you think ?
How do I know for sure the type of robot installed on my VM ? Is there a command to run, a settings file to open ?
Thank you very much by advance for your replies.
I leave on a 3-week holiday tonight, so I might not be able to reply frequently/soon.
