QUESTION

Is it possible to play back scripts on a Linux machine while the Desktop is locked?

ANSWER

Yes it is possible. SilkTest will successfully play back test scripts on a Linux machine while the desktop is locked.

However, if you switch to another desktop on the Linux machine, SilkTest will terminate play back on the previous desktop and your tests will fail.
