How can I instruct an Execution Server to leave SilkTest open after a test execution is run in SilkCentral Test Manager?

ANSWER
----------------------------------

When SilkCentral Test Manager executes a test via SilkTest, it will open SilkTest, run the test and then close SilkTest down at the end of the run. If you require SilkTest to remain open after a test execution has been run in SilkCentral Test Manager, then you will need to edit the SccExecServerBootConf.xml file and remove the -q option.

  1. Open the SccExecServerBootConf.xml file which is located at C:\Program Files\Borland\SilkCentral Test Manager x.x\conf\execserver
  2. Once you open the .xml file, scroll down until you locate the line which holds the -q option , it will look like this;

             -q      
    
  3. You can now remove the -q option, like so;

                  
    
  4. Save and close .xml file


*(If you are having problems omitting -q from the .xml file, right-click on the file and choose View Source. You can omit the -q from there.)
