Loadrunner cannot connect Load Generator,for help!

I add a new LoadGenerator in Windows Server 2008, close the firewall ,add start the Agent Process.

But I cannot connect this  LoadGennerator in  Contrallor machine.

When I click connect ,it will prompt  the information "Failed to connect to the load generator.Check the output window for more details"  in Details,and the process"lr_bridge" have not  be started in LoadGenerator machine.

 

Who knows the reason?

Re: Loadrunner cannot connect Load Generator,for help!

Hi Xiaji,

 

Can you please try pinging the Loadgenerator machine from the contoller.?

 

 

This scenario occurs because the communication between the Controller and Load Generator machine happens through a software called as Agent. Incase the Agent Service on the specified IP Address is not running, we would still be able to ping the machine, but cannot get it to act as a Load generator.

To activate LR Agent:

 

Navigate to Start Menu >> HP Software>> HP Loadrunner >> Advanced Settings >> Click on Agent Process/Agent Service . 


Once you click on those options, try connecting again. I am sure you will be able to get the LoadGenerator up.

 

Thanks

Renjith
