Demo: Automating the Creation of a Multi-Machine Test Environment

In the previous post, we talked about how a user could self-serve a multi-machine environment from a central repository (library) with no IT intervention. This multi-machine environment could be used for testing, support etc.

Now, what if such a configuration is not available in the library already? I.e., none of your test team/support team members have modeled such a scenario or test case yet?

The demo below shows how easy it is to create a 2-tier configuration – and deploy it in such a way that the deployment and setup occurs in a fully automated manner. In the demo, the 2-tier machine is deployed (Windows XP) and the host name is changed automatically. Other operations, like executing test scripts, populating data bases etc. could also have been done easily. At the end of the demo, we show how the configuration is available in the library and can subsequently be shared with other users/teams etc.

Note: You can enable this management setup over Microsoft, Citrix or VMware virtualization platforms.
