How to properly configure BlueZone for UiPath - 6530 Terminal Emulation


#1

I’m trying to get UiPath to connect to the BlueZone 6530 emulator used to connect to an HP NonStop mainframe. I’ve installed the 32 bit version of BlueZone as recommended in this forum. I have the BlueZone config set to auto-connect, and it auto-connects when I click on the the config file manually. When I point UiPath to this config, BlueZone complains with the following message:

“Not a valid configuration file for selected operation: C:\BlueZone\Config\WBY.z65”

This message is coming from BlueZone when UiPath tries to connect. What operation is UiPath performing on BlueZone that would cause this error and how can I properly configure BlueZone?

Also, I noticed in the UiPath “Automating Terminals and Mainframes” Knowledge Base document, that after specifying the connection parameters in UiPath I should see the terminal wizard. No wizard.


Here is an email that I sent to Rocket Software (BlueZone) regarding this issue, no response yet.

I’m trying to get UiPath (a Robotic Process Application) to automatically connect and bring up a 6530 session through BlueZone to access an HP Non-Stop mainframe. Here is the default ConnectionString that UiPath is using when trying to establish a session through BlueZone:

“{‘AttachExisting’:false,‘ConnectionType’:0,‘EhllBasicMode’:false,‘EhllDll’:null,‘EhllEnhanced’:true,‘EhllFunction’:‘hllapi’,‘EhllSession’:‘A’,‘Host’:‘xxxnxxxxnn.xxxxx.com’,‘Mode’:1,‘Port’:23,‘Profile’:‘C:\BlueZone\Config\WBY_AutoConnect.z65’,‘ProviderType’:3,‘ShowTerminal’:false,‘TerminalType’:0}”

The message that I get from BlueZone when I try to programmatically connect is the following:

“Not a valid configuration file for selected operation: C:\BlueZone\Config\WBY.Z65”

I need to know how to create the correct config file to handle the UiPath ConnectionString shown above. If I need to adjust the Connectionstring in UiPath, that can be done too.


Here is the resulting UiPath error when I just start the robot and try to connect::

Main has thrown an exception
