LoadRunner & VMWare
I'm in the process of getting new machines set up for our controller & loadgens, and our support vendor has recommended that we don't virtualize these anymore. Nearly all of our machines are VMs, and it's a bit more complicated to get physical ones...so I'm trying to figure out how important of a point this is.
I'm wondering - has anybody run into compatibility issues with LR & virtual controller/loadgens? They also mentioned that LR doesn't officially support VMWare 4.1, and I'm curious if there are any known issues with the two, or if they just haven't gotten around to supporting that version yet.
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated! I apologize if this is a re-post; I browsed through recent LR threads but couldnt' find it.
Re: LoadRunner & VMWare
There are a number of threads on this.
The short answer is that VM controllers and VM LGs are a bad idea.
