I have scripts that need to log into an OSX sut. I am seeing very ‘flaky’ behavior when the eggplant script attempts to log into the OSX machine. It will work maybe 70% of the time. This makes no sense to me since I am using the exact same user/password every time I run the script.
I created a test script that just does the following:
- login as local user
I ran this script 10 times in a row. It successfully logged in only 3 times. The other 7 times failed to log in.
I then ‘manually’ logged into the system 12 times in a row. (Manually was sitting at the desktop of the machine and logging in). I successfully logged in 10 of the times (and given the fact that there was possibly human error, that is nearly 100% success rate).
So, I am not sure what the hangup is when running through the script but a 30% success really stinks. And is not something I can reliably count on for my testing.
Does anyone know if this is a:
- Eggplant issue
- vnc server issue
Please help. We are getting down to the wire on putting our demo together for this and I am really frustrated at this point.
