Testautomation on a dedicated Testserver (Node locked lic)

Post by Toni Gansel » Wed Jan 27, 2016 10:53 am


we just started to use ranorex in our project.

I created a testpoject, made some some recording modules which just work fine.
Those tests are testing an Java Webapplication wich is running in the browser.

What I want to do now is to take those tests, put them on our "Testrunner-Machine" (an dedicated Server) and let them run there.

This is where I fail.
After the test ist exported into an .exe file it works fine on my machine, but it doesn´t run on the other machine*.

I already copied the whole /bin folder from my machine to the Automation Server, I set the Path variable.

What am I missing? Is there a better way to let the tests be executed on a dedicated machine?

Best regards

Hello Toni,

If you execute tests on a runtime machine, make sure that the same (or higher) version of Ranorex is installed, which was used to build the executable test.

For test execution it is sufficient to install only the main components without Ranorex Studio.

Kindly note that a valid license for the runtime machine is required for test execution.

Another way to build and execute tests on dedicated machines would be to integrate Ranorex into any Continuous Integration Process.

If you need more information, please do let me know.
