Spirent TestCenter: How to set Conformance IUT automation feature in GUI to work with 64 bit Windows OS?

  • Spirent TestCenter
    • CTS - Conformance
    • 64 bit OS
    • IUT Automation
    • Tcl
    • Expect

If OS is 64 bit, customer need to edit the ctsbll.ini file in the installation folder, then under the "[system]" section, add: osType=win64.

  • For example:
    • [system]
    • osType=win64

The main issue is Telnet doesn't work with the CTS GUI "IUT automation" feature if this setting is not added.

Possible Errors that could be displayed:

Tcl Evaluate() Failed, The system cannot find the file specified.
    while executing
"exp_spawn telnet $IutAddress "
    (procedure "ConnectToIut" line 33)
    invoked from within
"ConnectToIut "
    (procedure "::stc::cts::ospf::TestCONFIG2" line 17)
    invoked from within

  • Officially Conformance automation is not supported on 64 bit OS so if any issues arise from this that is not fixable by osType=win64 then the customer should use 32 bit PC.
  • Other symptoms:
    • CTS GUI crashing.
