Running Jobs with McAfee Virus Protection
I have a major problem running jobs on machines with McAfee virus protection enabled. If it were up to me I wouldn't have this software on my test machines. Here's an example:
Script Failures: 123
Total Duration: 12 hours 50 minutes
Script Failures: 3
Total Duration: 5 hours 33 minutes
Does anyone else have this kind of problem?
Does anyone else even use virus protection on a test machine?
Is there a way to correct the problem when the virus protection is enabled?
Windows XP Pro
Not using Visual Tests
Re: Running Jobs with McAfee Virus Protection
Did you analyze the error messages of the script failures? I can imagine that it might have something to do with the attach timeout for example. If McAfee (or any other virus scanner) is active some applications are slower so it is more likely that you run into an attach timeout.
You can change the attach timeout in the Options and save the options under e.g. "LongTimeout" and then specify in QADirector the Playback setting.
Or you can add as a first line to each script:
Playback.AttachTimeOut = 60
to set the timeout e.g. to 60 seconds (one minute)
