Hello!

 

I am looking for the RunTestSet Utility that is supported by ALM 11.52.

 

I have found the version for QC10,and QC/ALM 11 in this KB Article:

http://support.openview.hp.com/selfsolve/document/KM1395031

 

Is this version supported by ALM 11.52?

What version of ALM/QC are you using?

What is the OS, service Pack, and bit level of the system where you are running the Utility?

Hi, I am using ALM 12.50 patch 1. I got "RunTestSetScheduler_ALM.exe" file from somewhere. This file's created date is - 03 Dec 2014 15:47:16.

I just wanted to know Is this "exe" file is the latest version?

Actually while running this utility i am successful till message "Starting test set execution..." After this message program pause for long time and suddendly exit from DOS prompt.

I have UFT and ALM installed on same machine and im running tests on localhost. Manually Im able to run those test sets using 'Run Test Set' button.

please help me !

If you don't even know where the file came from, how can we possibly tell you if it is the latest version of that file?  😕

Are you able to get any error information from your use of the EXE? Does it produce a log file? have you checked the Event Logs for your system? Have you looked at the logs that are produced on the ALM server to see if they have any helpful information?

hi Trudy,

It seems you some knowledge about this program "runstestset.exe".

In our company we have got a problem (at takes too much time) in submitting all hour testset's in timeslots.

Do you know whether runstestset.exe is suitable for submitting testsets in timeslots? We are using HP-ALM 11.52 and UFT 12.02 build 3002. And could you tell me how or where i can download this program?

thnx very much,

Ben Lindeman, the Netherlands

The program is offered in an HPE knowledge base article. You must have a support contract to access it.

https://softwaresupport.hpe.com/group/softwaresupport/search-result/-/facetsearch/document/KM1395031

Note that HPE doesn't actually support this utility.

If you don't have a support contract, you can access this alternate version of the tool posted by another user.

What do you mean by submitting testsets in timeslots? Are you talking about scheduling testsets to run unattended at a particular time?

The program itself does not allow you to schedule the tests to run at a particular time. What it allows you to do is trigger the execution of tests through the Open Test Architecture API. If you want to schedule that trigger at a particular time, you need separate software for that. I use Microsoft Task Scheduler to set what time RunTestSets runs, and in that way am able to "schedule" tests to run at a particular time.

Alternately, you might want to explore the Lab Management feature of HP ALM. That lets you set the schedule within HP ALM itself.

hi Trudy,

thnx for your quick answer.

We are looking for a way to submit (5 times a week) our regression test. At this moment there are about 10 testsets and that number is growing. There exists a certain connecton between these testsets, so some testsets could be executed parallel on different testhost's and other testsets should be performed after another one. These are functional testsets! The duration of all these testset's differs. To submit these test's in timeslots with the correct starting time and duration (before we are leaving work to go home) cost too much time.

That's the reason i am looking for an instrument that helps me with this job.

I understand runtestset.exe is not able to start a testset in a specific timeslot. Using something like Microsoft Time Scheduler does not help me, because my own laptop will be shutdown when I am leaving for my dinner at home.

Maybe it is possible to create a BPT to start a DOS-box to run runtestset.exe and start a certain testset, these BPT keeps running and waiting till the next testset should be started and after all the testsets are started this 'controller' BPT will stop. This will cost me one extra testhost every night.

Or do tou have another suggestion?

In the Build Verification chapter In ALM you are able to create a Build Verification Suite and attach serveral testset's to it. A BFS could be started within a timeslot.

This is a very easy way to start several testset's in one timeslot.
