This procedure will cover how to manually create AD user accounts with login scripts for Login VSI.
Our software is fully agent-less and for this reason we rely on login scripts to launch the Login VSI tests.
The best way to create the Login VSI test accounts and login scripts is to run the AD Setup Tool in the Login VSI Management Console, and then run the PowerShell script it creates directly on your Domain Controller. This will then create the organisational units (OUs), tests accounts, and Login Script automatically for you. However if you are unable to do so, here is a procedure that will walk you through manually creating the Login VSI Test accounts, and login scripts.
Step 1: Open up the Active Directory Users and Computers (using an account that has access to modify AD).
(Optional) Create a new Organizational Unit name for LoginVSI, as well as a LoginVSI Security Group.
Step 2: Create the Login VSI user accounts, using the default settings.
Its helpful (but not mandatory) if all the users have the same password.
Step 3: Create the following .cmd files in your NETLOGON Directory.
Just copy and paste the below text to a new cmd file and change the VSISERVER to your servername.
For Test Accounts (V4-VSI_Logon.cmd)
For Launcher Account (V4-VSI_Launcher.cmd)
Note: This is needed if you will be using the Login VSI Launcher Workflow to help automate the entire test.
Step 4: Link the login scripts to the Launcher and all the Login VSI Test Accounts.
