When trying to record a browser session for the first time, you might see the following error (click for larger picture):
To fix this problem, follow these steps in Internet Explorer:
I also recently ran into another problem when recording a browser session. I successfully recorded the session, but when I clicked Run Test, it failed with the note that the server name or address could not be resolved:
The solution was to set my proxy configuration on the Management Server. The Run Test tool uses the proxy configuration that is set with the proxycfg tool, not the proxy configuration that is set for Internet Explorer. Once I ran proxycfg -p with the name of our proxy server, it worked like a charm:
The Run Test feature uses the Management Server to run the recording, but for standard operations, you'll need to make sure that the proxy settings are correctly set on your watcher nodes.
And, while we're talking about recording browser sessions, what do you wish you knew about them? I'll answer your questions in a future post.
