Re: TestComplete License Manager Installation

Thanks for the clarification. It helps to understand the issues so I can work with my network team on the right solution for the license server.

Re: TestComplete License Manager Installation

I would like to do something similar with Testexecute. I would like my Licence Manger running in a VM and the Testexecute running on the same “physical machine“ in the VMs to connect to the VM with the Licence Manger installed. The VMs will always be on the same host.

I can install the Licence Manger, but when I try to activate the floating licences, I get the message “Virtual machine detected. To run the product on a virtual machine, you need a Floating User licence which must be activated on a physical computer.

Should this work or can you not have floating licenses for Testexecute in a VM Licence Manger?

You can use floating TestExecute licenses on a License Manager... that is, how it's designed.  The problem is that it sounds like your TestExecute installations are not finding the licenses on the License manager. They are looking to run as node-locked licenses.

Why automate?  I do automated testing because there's only so much a human being can do and remain healthy.  Sleep is a requirement.  So, while people sleep, automation that I create does what I've described above in order to make sure that nothing gets past the final defense of the testing group.

The problem occurs whilst trying to active the floating licence in Licence Manger, not whilst starting Testexecute. The Licence Manger is installed in a VM.

Then what it sounds like is that the License Manager on a VM is not set up properly.  A best practice is that the License Manager should be a physical machine or on a VM that is configured to run on a static piece of hardware.

I think you're best bet would be to contact support directly.  I think they may need to help you with the License Manager installation to make sure it is properly configured to run on a VM.
