Currently I have 5 win2k8 servers acting as launchers. When I want to start a test I currently have to logon to each launcher then the agent starts. I would like to not have to logon to each launcher machine. Is there a way to set this up so that the tests does this. I have selected the checkbox Auto Start Launcher, but this does not seem to work.

Hello Adams,

I suggest to use the Sysinternals AutoLogon tool from MS which can be downloaded here . Run as Administrator and provide the user which the Launcher is installed on. Why the user that installed the Launcher? Because the installation will create a shortcut of The Launcher Agent in the Startup folder of windows:

For an individual user:
C:\users\%username%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup

For all users:
C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup

Via this way you can reboot the systems after each run, which will make them up/running without having them manually prepared or standby for each test if you don’t use them.

Let me know if this works out or if you need help.
