Did you look at this page by any chance? This is what you needed,  I believe.

Re: Help required to install ReadyApi on Linux via command line/shell

Yes, already looked at that. To add to the complexity, the linux account which need to run my scripts is a local account and hence can't use it to log on to a machine with GUI.

The documentation has given instructions how to use/activate license on headless machine. Did you try ?

Re: Help required to install ReadyApi on Linux via command line/shell

I'm unable to do the steps mentioned in the URL. The account under which I want to run projects on Linux machine is a local account used by Jenkins Server. Now this account not available as a network user id to install on another machine with GUI and transfer over the license files to the machine I really need it on.

 

At this point, the only option I see is to get X Windows installed on Linux machine. I would have been useful if Ready API provides a straight forward way to install floating licenses via command line ( Just like the option it already have in command line to install fixed license)

 

Thanks & Regards,

Re: Help required to install ReadyApi on Linux via command line/shell

Hi,

 

Finally I took the pain to configure X11 port forwarding on the headless Linux machine and installed floating license. Configuring the port forwarding for a dummy user was the tricky part, but thanksfully my Linux admin took care of that.

 

Thanks for all the responses to this thread.

Gilu Gopi
