If using a shared server, only one member of your workspace needs to set-up the server. You should check if a server has already been set up for you to use before you configure a new server.

To check if there is an available server in The VIP Test Modeller, first log in to your domain. Next, click “Profile” in the sidebar menu, and select “Automation Servers”. This will open the Server Settings page. Check the “Shared Servers” panel to see if there are any servers already set up in your workspace.

If a shared server is available, you will be able to queue automated test jobs from within The VIP Test Modeller. Follow the instructions here to use the existing execution server to queue jobs.

To execute queued jobs, the job engine must additionally be switched on. Check the “Last Active” field in the Server Settings page for the relevant server. If the time displayed is within minutes of the current time, the engine is switched on. If not, follow the instructions here to switch it on.

If there is no shared server available, follow these instructions to set one up.
