Maximum number of sessions for RQM QTP Testing

Dear Team,

We are seeing an issue with RQM that after having integrated with QTP by installing the adapters we are unable to run using multiple sessions.

Making the scenario clear:

If userA is logged to QTP user and userB also logged into the same server. When both the users connects to QTP server both the users are working on different scripts.

If userA invokes qtp script from RQM it throws an error which says :

The workaround is to verify from the Task Manager that only one user is using the QTP Server process.


We wanted to know using RQM, can multiple testers can work on the different scripts and execute at the same time.

Based on the testing we could see only one session is allowed for qtp script execution.

 My understanding is that there can be multiple people executing QTP tests at the same time, but they have to be using different adapters.    If the same adapter is being used, then that error message will appear.    We've also seen that error message when QTP doesn't close properly from a test.

Hi James,

Do you mean multiple people executing QTP tests at the same time against a single Project Area ??

James Paulus commented Dec 02 '13, 8:46 a.m.

I'm not sure if the single project area matters or not.    It might simply be use of the same adapter.    I guess I haven't tested the behavior the other way.

 I agree with James.  While I've not tested anything with QTP, with other adapters (RFT, Command Line), multiple users can run different tests as long as they are using different adapters.  It should not depend on the project area.

 According to our testers, they cannot do this in RQM 4. Reserving the lab resource prevents others from using it, even if they're using a different adapeter. They did not have this problem in RQM2.

Is there anyone from the RQM team that could comment?

That is a case where you cannot use different adapters. 

For example, if your run a Test Suite from a from Schedule, there is a 'reservation' that is done behind scenes because its a scheduled task. Any adapter associated with this run will not be available for use for any subsequent runs until the adapter is finished doing its reserved work.

But without further details, it's hard to say this is the issue here.

From our testers point of view, what is concerning is that they say the behavior has changed from RQM2 to RQM4. So the way the used to work before is no longer possible now that we have upgraded to RQM4.
