Linux machine as load generator -Error -- Unresolved symbol : lr_db_connect

I'm using parameter (lr_db_connect )in LR scripting and used syntax is as below . Its working without any error on Windows R2 2012 Server as load generator after registering  OraOLEDB11.dll for example - “c:\Windows\System32\regsvr32\ OraOLEDB11.dll”


                  "ConnectionString=Provider=OraOLEDB.Oracle.1;Data Source=xyz;Password=x;User ID=x",


But When we are trying to run  same script using Linux machine as load generator, we are facing below error –


Error: Communication error: Linked List client failed to initialize server pointer. (sys error message - No such file or directory)

vuser_init.c(5): Error: C interpreter run time error: /tmp/brr_W8Ca2d/netdir/C/x10/Scripts/x_SC2_ Create_Ticket/vuser_init.c (5):  Error -- Unresolved symbol : lr_db_connect.



Load Generator/Controller Version of on Windows Machine-12.02

Load Generator Version on Linux Server- 12.02 (same version as controller)


Please let me know in case of any other information.

Hi Sachin,

Sorry about the delay in response.

lr_db_connect is only supported on a windows OS, not Linux.

This will explain your problem in running with Linux LG and that specific function.

You can run it in windows OS with no issues.

Good Luck,
