HPLauncher Throws Error (HP PlugIn)

    XMLWordPrintable

Details

    Description

      We’re using the HP Test Automation Tools plug-in to run automated UFT tests from Jenkins. 

      Test jobs are initiated from Jenkins Master and execute on Jenkins Agent machines (Windows 7 Desktop).  See the snippet below, from the Jenkins Console log, that shows the HPToolsLauncher command.

       

      10:38:51 [OFFPIPELINE_mvp_ioi_regression_test_01_stage2] $ C:\Jenkins\workspace\OFFPIPELINE_mvp_ioi_regression_test_01_stage2\HpToolsLauncher.exe -paramfile props16082018103851125.txt

       

      When the logged-in user to the Agent machine is an Admin User the test job runs successfully -> UFT test is launched on the Agent machine, runs to completion and reports results back to Jenkins Master.

       

      Whereas, when the logged-in user to the Agent machine is a non-Admin User the test job throws an error:

       

      10:38:51 16/08/2018 10:38:51 Running: C:\Jenkins\workspace\OFFPIPELINE_mvp_ioi_regression_test_01_stage2\IOI_PDF_Compare\IOI_PDF_Compare

      10:38:51 Test result: Error

      10:38:51 16/08/2018 10:38:51 Test complete:

       

      The Results file indicates the following:

       

      name="C:\Jenkins\workspace\OFFPIPELINE_mvp_ioi_regression_test_01_stage2\IOI_PDF_Compare\IOI_PDF_Compare"><error message="Unable to change DCOM settings. To chage it manually: run dcomcnfg.exe -> My Computer -> DCOM Config -> QuickTest Professional Automation -> Identity -> and select The Interactive Userdetailed error is : Requested registry access is not allowed."/>

       

       

      Q:  Are Admin Rights required (for the account under which the UFT test is being executed on the Agent machine) in order to utilize the plug-in?

       

      Q:  If not, what must be done to resolve the error?

          Hi,

          command given in jenkins file is :

          c:\jenkins\workspace\TA\HpToolsLauncher.exe -paramfile props13122019112708250.txt

           i executed this command directly in slaves's command prompt, it throws an error- path for paramfile doesn't exist hence I executed the following command with the complete path to paramfile, it's working 

          c:\jenkins\workspace\TA\HpToolsLauncher.exe -paramfile c:\jenkins\workspace\TA\props13122019112708250.txt

          but if i execute the job from jenkins it won't work, please refer the screenshot below:

          As I see from the pictured attached, you are using "Execute Windows batch command" type of task, not the tasks included in our plugin.
          And I was referring to this command:
          "Unable to change DCOM settings. To chage it manually: run dcomcnfg.exe -> My Computer -> DCOM Config -> QuickTest Professional Automation -> Identity -> and select The Interactive Userdetailed error is : Requested registry access is not allowed."

          I checked the dcom settings, it is 'Interactve' user only.
