Unable to connect to HP ALM from HP Service Test

Hi I am trying to connect to HP ALM 11 from HP Service Test 11.2 through ALM Connector inbuilt in Service Test.

 

1. I go to FILE > ALM / QC Connection

2. I put in my server address "https://<qcserver>/qcbin

3. I put in my "UserName" and "Password"

4. I click "Connect"

 

GUI ERROR: "Failed to update components from server https://<qcserver>/qcbin"

 

LOG ERROR: 2012-05-23 11:08:42,103 [Spider] ERROR HP.ST.Shared.QcConnectionUtils.QcConnection [(null)] - ALM/QC Connectivity helper error:

Hi

 

I need more information:

 

- do you use an http proxy? 

- which kind of authentication does the server use - basic or ntlm? if there is proxy which kind of auth it use?

 

also please publish (Personal Info Erased) the log you get from this:

 

1. install and run DebugView http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb896647.aspx

2. produce the error in ST (while DebugView is runing)

3. send me the log you see in DebugView

Thanks for your assistance, I really Appreciate it

 

This is what I get, and I notice from below that it is trying to read "start_a.js" and fails. Actually should it not be "start_a.jsp"

And we dont use any http proxy to connect. And not sure what kind of authentication we use its "https" if thats what you mean. I could confirm that from Administrator

Hari - as we discussed offline this is an issue of untrusted ssl certificate on the qc installation. For example when IE tries to access QC not all is green - there is a certificate warning.

This fixed it for me. Who would think an IE setting would fix my connection between VuGEN and ALM PC.

Try ALM Uninstaller which will remove all the ALM component. Once clean up is done connect the UFT. Hope it works.
