LG and Controller Communication Issue -

Hi All,

We have Created the Citrix scripts in VuGen (12.01) and replayed it on same computer with no errors in the Vugen and also in the Controller using localhost as LG. However, when running the scenario from controller with a load generator as a different machine by mapping the IP address of that machine, it will error out when the script attempts to launch the citrix application.

We tried with "-lr_citrix_vuser_view" in the Command Line field in Controller settings. After that, when viewing the replay from controller, we see that the ICA window is closing after the test has been initiated. Also we came to know that the processes mdrv and wfica processes are getting terminated after starting the test from controller. 

We are getting this error "CCI security error You are running under secure mode and lr_save_timestamp is not allowed in this mode"

We tried with "-cancel_security_mode" in the Command Line field in Controller settings and then the script is initialized and failed in Bitmap sync.

How to Cancel the security mode of LGs without the use command line ?

Note : The LG is being run as a process, with vuser running over firewall enabled and all the LGs has the LR tool and Citrix Receiver with same version.

Please let us know your comment on this issue.

Another way is open the LoadRunner\dat\mdrv.dat on LG,  find the [CCI] section, add ExtCmdLine=-cancel_security_mode  in that section.
