I am attempting to install LoadRunner on a NT based machine that uses Banyan Vines network protocol. After LR is installed and a subsequent reboot, the Remote Command Launcher fails to start.

I have contacted Mercury Support, and tried their suggestions about verifying low level communications via combinations of ping, modifying the hosts file with IPs and host names, then modfying the miccomm.ini file as follows:

LocalHostNameType=2 ; 0: full name (if possible), 1: short name, 2: ip address

All these attempts failed to solve the problem.

Does anyone have any suggestions? Moreover, has anyone used LR with Banyan Vines network protocol? If so, did it work, and are there any pitfalls that I need to look out for.
