QUESTION
----------------------------------

How do I run a SilkTest script on a linux/unix machine using SilkCentral Test Manager when I can"t install an Execution Server on these Operating Systems?

ANSWER
----------------------------------

To run a SilkTest script on a unix/linux machine you will need to have SilkTest 7.6 and the appropriate SilkTest Agent (Sun Solaris/Red Hat Linux), please see SilkTest 7.6 Release Notes for specific supported environments/technologies.

When a SilkTest Agent cannot run on the same machine as the Test Manager Execution server (e.g., when tests are run on platforms other than Windows), the hostname and port may be specified by the "SilkTest AUT Hostname" setting in the Deployment tab of an execution definition. If the setting has not been defined, SilkTest default values (e.g., from partner.ini) will be used. Syntax for AUT is hostname:port.

The Agent must be started manually prior to test execution and configured to listen at the specified port. By default, the TCP/IP protocol is used for communication between SilkTest instances and SilkTest Agents. Ensure that both programs have been configured to use the same protocol.


See resolution 21746 for more information on configuring the SilkTest AUT Hostname.
