Running test script on SUT

Hi I am new to eggplant. Please correct me if I am wrong.

I am trying to figure out if I can run eggplant test on the SUT itself without a client running the script (and vnc into the SUT). What I am trying to accomplish here is the following:

  1. Eggplant script reside on SUT.
  2. Some application on the SUT will start the eggplant test script using command line (according to eggplant reference).

For some reason, I cannot have a client running the script and vnc into the SUT. I know this is not what eggplant was designed for. I am just trying my luck. Thanks for your time.

No, there is no way to run the script on the SUT without eggPlant. eggPlant requires a VNC connection to the SUT.


it is correct that we need to have a VNC server running for eggPlant to connect to but we can use eggPlant Drive running on the same machine (SUT) and have an other application drive the test. this could be done using several different scripting languages. The only difference is that you would need to have a floating license in order for this to happen. If you send an email to then we can help you with this.

Kind regards,
