Hi, I've performed a full installation of Loadrunner 12.53 in my machine, and I've setup some working testScripts.
Now I want to run them through the controller, with 2 load generators (the one on my machine and the one on another one, let's say Machine2). (both machines are windows10 physical machines).
I installed again Loadrunner 12.53 on Machine2, I didn't find the way of installing only the Load Generator Agent, so I installed again full loadrunner 12.53.
How do I setup Machine2 install?
How do I say to Machine1 controller to run Vusers on the loadgenerator of machine2.
When I click on "add new loadGenerator" it only let me to set a name and some information, but no IP adress or hostname of machine2 .. how can I be sure that Loadrunner Controller "sees" machine2's LoadGenerator?
Can you help me on the LG setup ? I have a window virtual machine. Can you tell me how to setup that vm as a LG ?
So kindly tell the steps how did you achieve that.
- You have done LR full setup in both the Machines.
- And you opened Load Generators from Machine 1 controller and you gave Machine 2 ip or Hostname and you clicked connect. And it connected i.e. status 'Ready
Is this the approach you have followed ?
Thanks for the load generator exe. I have installed the LG exe in one of my window virtual machine. I'm trying to add the LG on the controller. I'm getting below error. can you please helpme here ?
Failed to connect to the agent.

Did you ensure port 54345 is opened for TCP communication?
Can you right click the LoadRunner agent in the system tray and view the log? Which error do you see there?
You mean from the task manager ? I see Loadrunner Agent service in running state and magnetservice.exe also in running state. Can you tell me how to see the log ? system tray ?
Seems like you chose to install the Load Generator in Performance Center mode.
Can you please run the Agent Runtime Settings utility and choose to manually log in to this machine. This will change the agent to run as a process instead of as a service. You will see magentproc.exe in the Task Manager after this change and the agent icon will appear in Windows System tray (located at the bottom right side of the menu).
Maybe that will help resolving the communication issue.
Really thank you to walk me through, now i'm seeing the log in the window system tray. Here is the logs
DriverLogger: Log started at 25/04/2018 11:50:03 .

Not sure how you reached into this situation....
Please invoke the Agent Configuration utility and uncheck "Enable Firewall Agent". That will restart the agent and should resolve the issue.
Initally both check box are enabled, now i unchecked "Enable Firewall Agent". Do i need to keep "Enable Terminal Services" to be checked ?
