Attempts to run a test in a schedule in IBM Rational Performance Tester (RPT) 8.5 results in the error "org.apache.http.client.AuthenticationStrategy".
The playback does not start. The same test will successfully run directly (without a schedule).
Incompatible versions of HTTP client components may occur when multiple Rational products are shell shared.
Resolving the problem
- Install RPT without shell sharing with other Rational products.
- Install the RPT Agent on the same computer as the RPT workbench.
- Play back using a remote agent instead of localhost.
