Invoking Processes on Deployed Virtual Machines by Using SOAP API (1007497)


Lab Manager does not support using SOAP API to invoke processes inside guest operating.


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.
