Getting Started With ATRT Test Manager

3-Step Process to Begin Using ATRT Test Manager:

1. Install ATRT Test Manager

Unlike many other testing applications, ATRT Test Manager does not have to be installed on the System Under Test. In many cases it is installed on a separate machine to mitigate configuration changes.

2. Configure your System Under Test for automation

Prior to building a test, it is important to ensure that the System Under Test is configured for automation. This consists of two main areas:

  • Configuring the System Under Test to permit connections

A VNC server can be used on Windows, Linux, and Solaris machines and allows ATRT Test Manager to conduct tests on that device. Many VNC servers are available on the commercial market, and some are of free of charge. (Note: Please ensure that your VNC server supports RFB protocol version 3.8 before proceeding.)

  • Configuring the System Under Test’s theme and input settings

Before capturing any actions it is imperative that the System Under Test is ready for automation. IDT has assembled a guide for configuring Systems Under Test to ensure that their themes (and several other settings) are correct. All users are encouraged to look through the guide for ideas on what might impact their own systems.
