I have downloaded nimldr and ran it on a Linux box but I 'm not able to complete the installation of the robot. 

When I run the install I'm stuck at the point where the script asks where the the install files are. See example below:


[root@localhost LINUX_23_64]# ./nimldr 
nimldr version 3.57 Dec 1 2014 
Copyright(c) 2012, CA. All rights reserved. 

This program will help you install the Nimsoft infrastructure components (such as a robot or a secondary hub) on the current system. 

You will be given a series of questions, default answers are in brackets. 

Example: <Question>? ==>[default] 

Pressing Enter directly will use the default value, otherwise you should 
type in the requested information. 

If express installation is specified, the default value will be used 

A log of the installation can be found in the file: nimldr.log 

Hit Enter/Return key to continue. 

1 - ens32 (IPv4): 10.***.xx.xx 

Select the number of the IP you would like to use for this robot from those listed above: 1 

You selected IP #1: 10.***.xx.xx

WARNING: The temporary files directory is removed after installation! 

Where should nimldr store temporary files? 
==>[/opt/nimsoft/tmp] /tmp 
Beginning Robot installation: 

Is this a Cloud installation? 

Do we have the installation file locally? 
==>[no] yes 

Where do we have the installation file(s)? 
==>[] /tmp 

Where do we have the installation file(s)? 




The installation files can be fetched directly from the UIM Server by nimldr. However,  If you have told the installation script that you do have the instillation file locally:



 Do we have the installation file locally? 


==>[no] yes


Then verify that you have previously:

1. downloaded the install archives from http://server_name_or_IP:<wasp_port>/uimhome/installers.jsp (same place where you download the nimldr) and

2. placed them into a local folder and then specify the folder path at the nimldr question below:


Where do we have the installation file(s)? 


==>[] /tmp
