Deploying Virtual Testers

System Testing for C

The Virtual Tester Deployment Table allows to deploy previously created Virtual Testers.

To open the Virtual Tester Deployment Table

  1. Make sure that Execution is selected in your Build options.

  2. In the Project Explorer, right-click a System Testing node.

  3. From the pop-up menu, select Deployment Configuration.

  4. Select Advanced Options and click Rendezvous.

Note  The Virtual Tester Deployment Table is also included in the System Testing Wizard when you are setting up a new activity.

Virtual Tester Deployment Table

Use the Add, Remove or Copy buttons to modify the list. Each line represents one or several executions of a Virtual Tester assigned to an instance, target host, and other parameters.

Note    If the IP address line in the Host Configuration settings is blank, then the Virtual Tester Deployment Table retrieves the IP address of the local machine when generating the deployment script.

Advanced Options

Click the Advanced Options button to add the following columns to the Virtual Tester Deployment Table, and to add the Rendezvous... button.

Click the Rendezvous Configuration button to set up any rendezvous members.

File System Limitations

Deployment of the Virtual Testers results in the creation of an .spv deployment script. This script contains file system commands, such as CHDIR. If you are deploying the test to a target platform that does not support a file system, you must edit the .spv script manually.

For the .spv supervisor script to be generated, the Execution option must be selected in the Build options.
