    Server) is the location of robot that controls the UIM primary hub.
  • The UMP Server (Optional):
      The UMP Server contains all of the components required to run the Unified Management Portal (UMP). In very small deployments, you can install UMP on the Primary Hub Server.
  • Secondary Hub Servers 
    (Optional)
    : Extra servers for load-balancing and failover capability.
Before you attempt to install these components, complete all documented pre-installation tasks. These tasks include:
  • Preparing your server hardware for each UIM component. 
  • Configuring the operating systems for each piece of server hardware in the CA UIM environment.
  • Installing and configuring the third-party database software that will host the UIM database.
Once you have completed all of the pre-installation planning tasks, you can proceed to the article Install UIM Server.
