I started the Ochestrator training this week and, after several tries, I still have not been able to get the UiRobot licensed and I gave up.
.-> Machine and robot instances are both created in the orchestrator.
.-> Machine key code given by the Orchestrator is introduced in the UiRobot as copy-paste.
.-> Robot username in the Orchestratior is a copy-paste of the result of whoami cmd command.
.-> Robot is declared as Attended Floating in the Orchestrator, as indicated in the tutorials (two licenses available for Attended robots, according to the Orchestrator).
.-> Robot is checked in the Manage menu of the Demo Environment. I tried to create a new not-default environment and check it there, but it seems that this is not the problem.
.-> The Orchestrator URL is “https://platform.uipath.com/”. I tried to add the name to the service to the URL and I tried different configurations of the URL/xxx/yyy, but nothing worked.
.-> I’ve seen in the forum that, according to the license model, “your robot gets licensed in Orchestrator only when you run a job or you have Robot tray\Studio opened”. I have had Studio opened during the whole process. I’ve tried to restart it several times, together with the Orchestrator and UiRobot, and in different sequences, but nothing worked.
.-> In the UiRobot, machine name appears automatically, and includes ONLY the ‘domain’ part of the domain/myusername returned by the whoami command. This value appears automatically in capital letters, and does not seem to be editable (I assume the UiRobot takes what it needs from the computer in which it is running). But it is not the complete domain/username.
.-> When I try to publish a Workflow from the Studio, trying to force the activation of the robot somehow, an error message appears indicating that “A robot with username ‘MYUSERNAME’ is not declared in the Orchestrator”. That ‘MYUSERNAME’ that appears in the error message is the same as the second part of the domain/myusername value returned by whoami command, but in capital letters (the whoami does not return capital letters).
If anyone could help me with this issue…
