Im looking for an automation solution , where I have a server(Windows) and this server will communicate with mutiple hosts (different OS like Tru 64,OVMS,HP-UX,SUSE,RHEL)and gets the host details.
The automation tool should be capable of supporting different Operating systems.
Is there a possibility of using Java/Perl ?
Also for the GUI which tool to be used either Winrunner/Loadrunner.
Appreciate if you can help me on this.
the host information here is the OS details which OS is it, HBA information (if here are any HBAs installed), capacity.
This is required so that depending in the OS type some agents need to installed on to that OS
From reading the initial question, I think you need to take an additional step back and look into what type of testing you are referring to and define it.
Asking which tool to use for GUI testing between LoadRUnner and WinRunner shows an absense of basic understanding of the tools that are out there. Other than the company that releases those tools, there isn't anything in them in common, they are used to different sections of the testing process. Like asking which is better to get from point A to point B - a car or an apple.
Not trying to slam, but you aren't asking a question in a manner that makes sense. The taks you have listed easy enough, but there may not be one tool that will get you what you need for all of it.
As Corey_G has asked, I think we all might need to know a little more about what it is you are exactly trying to do, and what is hindering you
