Domain account query - Performance Center

Jump to solution

We use a domain account instead of the default IUSR_METRO as our Performance Center user.

Our entire Performance Center infrastructure is built in the same domain. (ALM servers, PC Servers and LG's)

Recently, our testing team has been asked to test an application, but the difference is the location from which we want to test is international. This international location is not on our network and domain. They want us to build a server in the international location and install Load Generator host there. But I do not see how this will work, given that we will not be able to add the domain accoint as an admin on this server?

Does anyone have any advice on this?

That is correct.  A few more points...

> The Listener machine should be installed on your network & domain. 

> The firewall should be configured to allow outgoing communication from the Load Generator to the MI Listener IP. 

> The Controller conncets to the Load Generator via the Listener. It actually send instructions and requests "updates" from the Listener and the Listener follows the instructions or returns data every time to the Load Generator pings the Listener.

Hi,

That's not an issue.

You should install a Load Generator Standalone in Performance Center configuration. Load Generator Standalone does not require Performance Center system account to be configured on it. In Performance Center admin or Lab Management, you should add it as Load Generator Standalone

If you do not have direct connection from the Controllers to the LG location, you can use MI Listener for over firewall communication. 

Regards,

Shlomi

Ok so we do not have direct connection from the controllers to the standalone load generator. I will need to do some reading on MI Listener. But at a high level, will it look something like the below:

Our Network & Domain - Currently contains the ALM Servers, DB Server, Repository, the PC Servers, PC Hosts, Controllers and Load.

International location - will contain a standalone LG Server which we will also add to the Lab Manager -> Hosts as a standalone LG

Between the above two, we should have another server with MI Listener configured on it? It will handle the communication between the two locations?

Thank you very much for this. I think I will need to get some of our network guys involved to assist but this should solve our problem.
