Ignoring LoadGeneratorLocationError

Melissa Connors shows how to ignore LoadGeneratorLocationError errors in Visual Studio load tests:

I use Visual Studio for performance testing and overhead analysis with the SentryOne products. Currently, I have Microsoft Visual Studio Enterprise 2015 Version 14.0.25431.01 Update 3 installed. Since the first edition of 2015 (possibly even Visual Studio 2013), I’ve received a LoadGeneratorLocationError during each Load Test execution.

Since I am running the test locally, this error is noise. Furthermore, no one wants to see an error in an otherwise successful test. It simply ruins the final results report. In addition, when the Load Test was created, “On-premise Load Test” was selected, which makes this frustrating. Possibly more frustrating is that it’s called “On-premise” when you get started in the New Load Test Wizard.
