I have such a question: we use WinRunner with Test Director. All tests (and libraries) are stored on TD side, and are running locally. The problem is, that approximately at 24.00-01.00 connection to TD from local Winrunner disappears (Winrunner disconnects). Why could it be?
It seems like the problem is not in TestDirector, because connection to TD through Internet Explorer is kept alive till morning (WAIT_BEFORE_DISCONNECT = -1 property is unlimited)
In the morning the ConnectionToTDOptions window indicates that WR is disconnected
If someone had such a trouble - help please. Or maybe someone has any ideas...
Where is your TD Database stored, if it is on a remote server in the form of Oracle or another type, then perhaps the DBA's are backing up or rebooting the server at that time. This is a pretty common prcedure. If so then when you lose the database your connectivity is interupted. Also, depending on what version TD you are using, there is some instabilities which might effect its connectivity also.
