Invoking Processes on Deployed Virtual Machines by Using SOAP API (1007497)
You can invoke a process on a deployed virtual machine by using one of the following methods:
Use the open source STAX and Software Testing Automation Framework (STAF). Install an agent in each guest operating system and run commands inside this guest operating system.
Use Secure Shell (SSH) and PsExec (from Sysinternals).
Install a bootstrap agent that can expose a SOAP API, and install the same bootstrap agent inside each guest operating system.
Use applications supported by Lab Manager such as HP Quality Center, Borland Silk Central Test Manager, and ElectricCommander from Electric Cloud.
