Switch Bot Agent to a Different Control Room


Are you tired of constantly switching between devices for your Control Room login, only to be greeted by the frustrating error message, "This device is already registered with another Control Room"? It's a common hiccup we encounter when juggling Control Room logins on the same device. But fear not, for there is a solution at hand!


Understanding the Issue:

Before we delve into the fix, let's dissect why this error occurs in the first place. The Control Room associates each device with a unique registration, allowing only one Control Room per device at any given time. So, how do we resolve this issue and effectively delete the device registration?


Deleting or Renaming File:


Here's the answer: Navigate to the Registration properties File Path: C:\Windows\System32\config\systemprofile\AppData\Local\AutomationAnywhere. Once there, locate and either delete or rename the "" file. With this step completed, you're ready to reconnect your device hassle-free.



But what exactly is the file?

This file is a crucial component in the Automation Anywhere ecosystem. Nestled within the directory C:\Windows\System32\config\systemprofile\AppData\Local\AutomationAnywhere, this file serves as a digital certificate for your device's connection to the Control Room. It contains vital information regarding your device's registration status, ensuring seamless communication between your device and the Control Room.


The Importance of Control:

Now, why would you want to tamper with this file, you ask?

Well, it's all about flexibility and control. By either deleting or renaming the file, you effectively reset your device's registration status, giving you the freedom to connect to a different Control Room without encountering the dreaded "already registered" error.


A Word of Caution:

But be warned, tampering with system files should be done with caution and preferably under the guidance of IT professionals or knowledgeable individuals. It's like wielding a double-edged sword - wield it wisely, and you unlock a world of possibilities; mishandle it, and you risk disrupting the delicate balance of your system.



In essence, the file is more than just a series of characters and directories - it's the linchpin of your Control Room connectivity, offering a pathway to smooth sailing in your automation endeavors. Treat it with the respect it deserves, and it shall serve you well on your automation journey.
