    how to deal with the reboot during installation. ******

    I'm doing the automation of installation of internet application server using silk (the installation need to be tested on both NT and UNIX platform). During the installation, the machine will get rebooted before the whole installation is done. Does anyone know how to automatically relogin and restart the silk to continue the automation test procedure of installation. Do I need to install the silktest and silk agent on the seperate boxes?

    Hi,

    I would recommend that you use two machines. The host machine should have SilkTest and your test scripts should run from here and the target machine should have the SilkTest Agent. All of the testing should take place on the target machine. Adopting an approach like this will enable you to write a testcase which will reboot the target machine, and continue testing.

    For further information about rebooting a remote machine check out the article on Segue's customer's site - http://customers.segue.com/protected...arroll_tip.htm

    I hope that this helps,

    John.

    I would look in the download section for the remote reboot functions. I have used these and they work great. On windows platforms they do require that tweak UI is installed and configured to auto-login the machines.
