Is it possible to start SilkBean on a UNIX based operating system from SilkCentral Test Manager?

ANSWER
----------------------------------
To perform this functionality we are required to install the SSHLauncher plugin. See the following resolution in regards to obtaining the SSHLauncher plugin:

24202

To start SilkBean on the UNIX platform perform the following:

  1. Create a new Test Definition and set the Test Type to "SSH Test" and press "Next"

  2. Set the required information for your UNIX machine; hostname/IP, login name, password

  3. The command should be set to: /java segue.server.SilkBean &;

  4. Specify a name for the results file and press "Finish"


If you now execute that Test Definition it will start the SilkBean server on the hostname that was specified. The ";" is required to generate a Enter event to exit the terminal hang that occurs when SilkBean is started, if we did not perform this the test execution would not exit until SilkBean was killed on the UNIX machine.
