Test Agent and Test Controller register failed RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I'm trying to configure Test Manager to run Coded UI test. I have installed Test Controller, and Test Agent, and I created account that has admin access. Can I use this same account as logon account for the test controller service and for test agent (same account for everything)?

    When I try to configure test Agent, I get error:

    Failed to register this agent with test controller. Connection to the test controller failde because either test controller is inaccessible or service is not running.

  • Hi,

    I solve this issue. I wasn't logged in as Administrator, so I truned off Test Manager, and started as Administrator.

  • Hi Sally,

    Yes you can use same account for both of them.

    Are you sure that port 6901 is opened between controller and agent? please chick the firewall as well.

  • Hi,

    thank you for your answer. I registered agent  and controller, and I try to create Standard Environment in Lab Center in MTM, but I get verification error:

    Microsoft Test Manager cannot install test agent on these machines. Possible causes:

    -Machines are not running or they are not available on the network

    -The File and Printer Sharing exception is not enabled.

    I checked File and Printer, and it is enabled.
