VSTS Load test issue RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I was trying to run a load test using remote controller and configured a database to store all the results, However after i start load test error is shown as below. Can some one guide me here?

    Error LoadTest2 c:\*****\loadtest2.loadtest The load test results database could not be opened.  Check that the load test results database specified by the connect string for your test controller (or local machine) specifies a database that contains the load test schema and that is currently available.  For more information, see the Visual Studio help topic 'About the Load Test Results Store'.   The connection error was: A connection was successfully established with the server, but then an error occurred during the login process. (provider: SSL Provider, error: 0 - The client and server cannot communicate, because they do not possess a common algorithm.)

  • Hi venkyb,

    >> I was trying to run a load test using remote controller and configured a database to store all the results

    Are you using the remote controller and database on the same computer?

    If remote controller and database not on the same computer, it could be caused by SSL algorithm parameters.

    Please check all the SSL and find the difference in database and remote controller. To check these parameters, go to registry (type “regedit” in Run command window)

    Check all the values underneath this key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\SecurityProviders\SCHANNEL.

    Changed the different between database and remote controller, make them consistent.

    SCHANNEL is Microsoft implementation of SSL.

    In addition, please enable SSL and TLS via Internet Options:

    Hope it help you!

  • Hi,

    I am still facing this connectivity issue. Does Microsoft have any support in resolving these type of issues?

    I have 6 machines in total. Following was my complete setup to run load test. 

    Machine1  has controller. Machine2-4 has agent, Machine5 has SQL Server 2014 installed. This i used for storing database results. Machine 6 have completed vsts enterprise for preparing scripts etc.. 


    VSTS Enterprise 2015(which i used for scripting)

    Controller & Agents - visual studio 2013 update5

    SQL Server to store results- SQL Server 2014
