Error description

  • If a Performance Test contains more than one distributed (Load
    Generating or Background) test it may fail to initialize if
    these tests are using multiple engines.
    
    For example, if you attempt to run a Performance Test that has a
    Load Generating test configured to be executed on "Engine1" and
    a Background Test configured to be executed on "Engine2" it may
    fail to initialize.
    
    When some of the configured engines cannot be initialized the
    Performance Test terminates without generating any load.
