Agent Configuration Dialog Box

This dialog box enables you to enable and configure the LoadRunner agent on Windows machines.

To access

Do one of the following on the LoadRunner machine:

  • Select Start > All Programs > HP Software > HP LoadRunner > Advanced Settings > Agent Configuration.

  • Run <LoadRunner root>\launch_service\bin\AgentConfig.exe.

Important information
  • The Agent icon does not appear in Windows 2008 when the HP Load Testing Agent Service is launched.
  • When LoadRunner Agent runs as service (magentservice.exe), files that are stored on remote network drives or referred to by UNC path cannot be accessed (script, parameter file, etc.). If you want to access files this way, run the LoadRunner Agent as process (magentproc.exe).
    Workaround: To access network share, configure the HP Load Testing Agent Service to run with an account that has network access permissions.
  • When running the LoadRunner Agent as a service (magentservice.exe), and the Agent Configuration as administrator under UAC or a standard user: If you click the OK button and attempt to restart the HP Load Testing Agent Service, it issues the warning "Access is denied" .

    1. Run the Agent Configuration as administrator when UAC is off.
    2. If the current user is administrator, or a user having the appropriate permission to work with HP Load Testing Agent Services, go to Service Manager (services.msc), and manually start the LoadRunnerAgent service (and for Performance Center, the RemoteManagementAgent service).
    3. You can also run <LR>\bin\subinacl.exe as administrator to grant a user (user1 in examples below) full access permission of the target service. For example,
      For LoadRunner: subinacl.exe /service LoadRunnerAgent /grant=user1
      For Performance Center: subinacl.exe /service RemoteManagementAgent /grant=user1
