Troubleshooting the IBM RPA on premises edition installation
Learn how to isolate and solve problems during the IBM RPA on premises edition installation.
Empty certificate list during the installation process
The installation wizard does not display any certificates for your choice. This problem is because you don't have a certificate installed on your machine.
Changing the storage directory path doesn't move the files
You changed the storage directory path but the files didn't move to the new directory. You must move the files manually.
A service is not responding
A service entered a failed state. You need to restart the service.
The connection to the IBM RPA Control Center appears as not private
The browser does not recognize the certificate. This problem can occur when you use self-signed certificates.
The email server configuration is correct, but the server is not sending emails
The settings are correct, but the server doesn't send any emails. This problem can be due to a lack of connection between the IBM RPA server and the email service or a lack of connection permissions.
I can't see which ports are available for connection
You must use the
NETSTATservice to see the active ports.
IBM RPA Control Center does not start
It may occur due to lack of access by the server to the database or the lack of the IIS URL Rewrite 2.1 resource.

It can occur when trying to activate MSMQ.
