Working with the Bourne shell, the Korn shell, the C shell
By default, LoadRunner uses the C shell as its environment for running processes,
and uses the .
initialization file to create the working environment. If your
application runs under the Bourne shell or the Korn shell, you need to instruct
LoadRunner to work in the correct environment. For instance, instead of using the
file, the Korn shell uses the .
initialization file to create the working
environment. In some cases, the Korn shell initialization file has another name,
such as .
. Substitute the correct name wherever necessary.
To allow LoadRunner to run your application under the Korn shell, you first need to
make sure that the .
file contains all of the LoadRunner environment settings,
for example, the M_LROOT definition and the LicenseManager variable. These
environment settings already exist in your .
file. Your UNIX
$M_LROOT/templates directory contains a template for the .
. Use the template as a guide for modifying your .
file with the
LoadRunner environment settings.
Once you've set up your .
file, you need to instruct LoadRunner to use the
Korn shell instead of the C shell.
