Setting up slave machine

Post by vishni » Sat Feb 05, 2022 4:28 am


Can someone help me on how the Jenkins node machine should be configured?
Iam starting the agent using jnlp. However if i am not RDP to the VM the scripts don't run.

How to get active session all time? Can someone tell me what needs to be set on the VM

Everything you need to know regarding Ranorex & Jenkins integration, is described in the user guide: ... roduction/

As of how to configure Jenkins slave, it should be described on Jenkins web?

To keep the session alive, you can either use the technique, described at bottom of this Ranroex user guide chapter (keep user session alive): ... lRDPbrspan

Eventually, you can use a 3rd party tool. In our company, we are using a tool called LogonExpert.
