In my project, I have an Open Browser activity that is set to Google Chrome as the browser type, to open a specific website.
In my architecture, I also have an Unattended Robot VM (let say Machine XYZ), and I also set up a domain user to connect to Machine XYZ. The user is let say maccu\piccu. The user maccu\piccu is also configured to be able to be used as a remote user so I could install the required Google Chrome extensions, setting ODBC driver and connection inside maccu\piccu user profile.
The way Orchestrator could connect to the Machine XYZ is: I create an Unattended Robot in Orchestrator and connect to the machine XYZ using user maccu\piccu and provide the password as well.
The problem is, If I did not manually login into the machine via Remote Desktop before running the project using the manual trigger from UIPath Orchestrator, the above error always happened.
But, after I did these steps:
- Login into machine XYZ with user maccu\piccu using Remote Desktop
- Close the Remote Desktop without log-out.
- Re-run the project in the orchestrator with a manual trigger or scheduled trigger.
The error never happened.
Is this expected? Or is there any configuration I missed? I would like the robot to be able to execute the project without somebody login with user maccu\piccu to machine XYZ.
