When I run a multitestcase example it performs the actions on the host machine although I do not specify this local machine.

When I run a multitestcase example it performs the actions on the host machine although I do not specify this local machine.

When specifying the list of string that contains the target machines please ensure that no "empty" lines are included here. Should an empty line occur SilkTest will see this empty entry and see that this is a reference to run this test locally. Therefore the test will execute on the local machine also.

To overcome this, simply remove the empty line of the list of string. The code example below runs fine by connecting to the target machines, clicking on the start button and then disconnects. If you add an empty string to the list of sting it will cause the test to be executed locally even though it has not been specified.
