Pinned topic RPT 8.3 - Schedule can't run on local machine

‏2013-03-04T19:28:40Z |
I've upgraded IBM RPT to 8.3, when I'm trying to run the schedule in my local machine (in Schedule Element Details-> Locations, choose "Run this group on the local computer"). I got the following error:

Agent localhost not ready, time of last contact: No successful contact
Check Agents Failed

Can someone please advice what caused this? Many thanks.

    For local schedule execution an agent is started automatically. With version 8.3.0.0 there is a ten second timeout that can occur triggering the check agents failed before the agent is running. One answer is to just try running again.

    If it seems like a persistent and annoying issue another answer is to install the RPT Agent product alongside the workbench. If the agent is running it shouldn't try to launch another and you should no longer get the check agents failed message.

    The timeout in question will be increased in the next release.

    I installed RPT agent 8.3 in my workbench machine as suggested, then it worked - the schedule can be run in the local machine! Thanks very much for the advice.

    In this case there is no chance to get that type of error while launching schedule ...
    Whenever we open RPT on our local machine, at that time only Agent also started automatically.
    Please check the options in the user groups
    location of the schedule run....
    and then restart the RPT..... its may be work
