TestExecute licencing issue on Nutanix server

    When you invoke TestExecute, it will look on your network for the license manager and then check whether there is a TestExcute license free and if there is then it will open up the instance for you.


    We normally recommend having a physical machine for license manager as VMs tend to change cpu, mac address etc. So if you can pin for example the ip or mac address to the machine and it stays static then you can install license manager on vm but if any of the mechanics like cpu, ip address change, your licenses will be lost. 


    Check out for working with license manager and remote connection but again the machines where TestExecute is installed need to be able to access the license manager server
