    TD Connection problem in QTP

    Before anyone says I should put this in the QTP forum, I already did. Just not sure which one fits better. [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

    Anyway, I am having problems getting a new install of QTP to connect to an established TD Server. Situation:

    I already had QTP installed on the PC on my desk so I could record tests, etc., there. The TD server is on another subnet, but in the same domain. I had (and have) no problems connecting to the TD server in QTP.

    The second QTP system (my formal test bed, and the new install) is on the same subnet as the TD server, and in the same domain. I can connect to the TD server from the TD interface through IE on the second system, but I can't get QTP to connect correctly. It keeps giving me the "The RPC server is unavailable." error message. Remember, I can still connect from my personal system through QTP, and I have more than enough licenses for QTP and TD to cover these 2 boxes. I have tried the connection using IP, short name, and fully qualified paths, but they all do the same. QTP acts like it connects, but it can't generate a list of projects, and gives the RPC error.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    TD 8.0 all patches and add-ins installed.
    QTP 6.0 all patches and add-ins installed.

    Re: TD Connection problem in QTP

    Have you installed the TestDirector Connectivity Addon on the new machine? It's available from the TestDirector Add-ins page. If you have installed it, try re-installing it.

    Best of luck!

    Boyd,

    Unfortunately, yes.

    Wish it was that simple. I have installed all the patches and add-ons that are relevant (at least as far as I can tell). I think I am about to the point of re-baselining my formal test machine anyway so we can ghost it, et al.

    I will re-check my installation on the current config first just to make sure.

    Thanks for the response.

    Re: TD Connection problem in QTP

    You need to write exactly the same URL in QTP as you do in IE. For example, if you server is located on machine called "MyServer", URL to write in QTP connection dialog would be:
    http://MyServer/tdbin

    Re: TD Connection problem in QTP

    Alexei,

    Thanks, but I already have the URL string correct. This is not a problem with FINDING the server, but with connecting correctly. QTP will make the initial connection, but will not be able to make a FULL connect. QTP says it can't get a list of projects from TD, with the RPC error I talked about earlier.

    Thanks for the help though,
    Kelly
