Using Benchmark Factory 6.5 Build 332.
I have 5 Windows 2008 R2 servers. Server1 is where the Benchmark Factory GUI is running. The other 4 servers have benchmark factory installed but have agents running (not the GUI). I have created 10 services using instsrv.exe and srvany.exe like this:
“C:\Program Files\Utils\instsrv.exe” BenchMarkFactoryAgent1 “C:\Program Files\Utils\srvany.exe”
“C:\Program Files\Utils\instsrv.exe” BenchMarkFactoryAgent2 “C:\Program Files\Utils\srvany.exe”
etc. On the agents, in services.msc I have changed the account to my Windows domain account and it connects fine to the Benchmark Factory server. If I change the account on the agents to a service account and restart the services, the agent does not connect and I get this in the error log on the agent:
