i want to use UFT in a "system and service test" environment
at the target "system under test" (sut), various applications will be testest (e.g. MS-Office, Outlook, Adobe, various browser, security stuff, even Citrix stuff to connect from sut to another machine). Mainly existence and configuration, but also some functional parts.
the sut are physical and virtual W7 and W10 machines (i dont know actually what these VDI machines are based on)
The automated UFT test cases are to be controlled from ALM. the sut is controlled from a dedicated "automation" laptop, which then connects to the SUT and executes the varios uft automation scripts
is it mandatory to install (and run) the uft agent on the sut? or is it sufficient for testing to connect to the sut exclusively via remote desktop? What would be the limitations or additional features if the uft agent is/is not installed on the target system?
reason for this:
I want to avoid to install UFT Agent software on the SUT due to various security software, which might conflict wit the uft agent. Thes security products need to be configured specifically for allowing the uft agent to do his work. but this configuration (working uft agent and supressing security tools) wil not match the later production environment (which has NO uft agent installed)
