player does not find datapool
I am fairly new to using QALoad. I have been using it for a couple of months. I am using several different datapools for many different scripts. The datapool files are working with the scripts as expected. However, when I run conductor the players exit the tests because they do not find the datapool file. The only player that finds the file and will not fail is the player on the conductor machine.
I add the file externally on the script assignment tab under the external data column. The file gets added to the Central Datapool (some scripts use strip & other rewind that has not been a problem). Am I supposed to attach the file as well? I conducted the test both ways having it under both areas central/attach and neither way worked.
In our environment the player machines are set up across the network and on different domains. It was suggested that all the players be on the same domain. Would this be the reason why the players do not find the datapool file?
Does anyone have any suggestions as to why the players are not finding the datapool files?
Re: player does not find datapool
Is difficult to understand the issue, without knowing exactly the error message. But if you are using central datapool, the correct implementation should be inserting the file in the Central Datapool zone. The scripts should be created to get the information from a central datapool also (this is very important).
And if you a using the central datapool you should not get a error from the players saying that the file was not found, if the player communicates with the condutor this should be sufficient the get the information from it.
Please validate that the script are created to get the information from a central datapool, that the conductor machine communicates with the player machine and also that you put the file in the Central Datapool area in conductor.
