HP host could not be allocated



Whenever a test is run on performance Center we get the error that the "host could not be allocated"

The laod geenrator then channges from operational to non oepratioanl in Lab Management


This happens at the step "Connect to Load Generators" It states 'Allocating load generators - 0 of 1 allocated  - failed

At the start run step we get the error

"Run test encountered the follwing warning: 'Error: Process "lr_bridge.exe" was not created on remote host xxxxxxxxxxxx. Reason: Communication error. Make sure the Agent process or service is running on the remote machine Msgld:MERR-29987

Run test fialed. Reason couild not aloocate enough load generators

Run 320 (Timeslot ID_ changhed state from intializing to run failure

Load test failed


I can ping other servers from the problem load generator. However I cannot ping the problem server from other servers.

Ive checked the ports 443 and 54345 and they are not in use on the problem load generator

We dont have telnet instaleld on these serevrs so in place of that i rand a Powershell command Test-NetConnection -port 54345 -computerName xxxxxxxxxx 

This test came back as Ping Succeeded being True and TCP Test succeeded as also being true

There is no Firewall turned on for the problem server or other servers.


Thanks for any help
