I am getting an error in registry "
This registry will not be allowed to start until it can be activated by a
valid Enterprise Dashboard Server." But enterprise dashboard server was not installed while installing devtest.
Enterprise Dashboard Service has the DevTest license file. The registry service needs to connect During installation of DevTest you have to either (A) provide the location of the license file to install a local Enterprise Dashboard service or (B) you need to specify the IP address (hostname, FQDN) and port number of a valid Enterprise Dashboard service. Assuming you installed DevTest according to (B) please check if the Enterprise Dashboard service is started on the specified system, and is listening on the specified port. If it does make sure that no firewall is active on or between both systems for the specified port. If you used hostname or FQDN to specify the location of the Enterprise Dashboard service make sure that the name is resolved by DNS.
Thanks for your question! I've moved this question over to the DevTest Community where it's more likely that product experts will see it.
I got a trial version on devtest 8.0 installed. Is it possible that the enterprise dashboard service does not gets installed with demo version?
Fortunately, there are no trial versions, but full featured versions only. Which DevTest 8.0 version did you install? Apart from DevTest 8.0.0 we also had released two Service Packs called DevTest 8.0.1 and DevTest 8.0.2. Our latest release is DevTest 8.5, which I recommend using if you start evaluating DevTest.
I installed devtest 8.0. I have installed the version which provides both devtest server and devtest workstation. But I am still getting this error "This registry will not be allowed to start until it can be activated by a valid Enterprise Dashboard Server".
Another issue is that enterprise dashboard is not getting installed devtest server and workstation.
Which of the installation alternatives that I described in my response above ((A) or (B)) did you choose? In order to better help you, please zip all the *.log file in LISA_HOME/lisatmp_<version> and attach it to your response.
As Ulrich mentions, at least one instance of Enterprise Dashboard must be installed somewhere on your network, and accessible by all registry systems installed later.
when u install the Dashboard, (select New dashboard from the install menu) you will be prompted for the devtest.lic file
Later when installing another system with Registry (part of Server install), you will again be prompted.. you then select use Existing, and point to the RUNNING Enterprise Dashboard previously installed.
this connection will verify the license for this (and any other ) Registry. This connection is not tested until the Registry server runtime is started, but the value is written into the lisa.properties file
