Issue/Introduction

Staging locally works correctly.

However, staging to a remote Coordinator fails with a message similar to:

============================================================================ 
| Exception: 
============================================================================ 
| Step: XXXX Step 
---------------------------------------------------------------------------- 
| Message: Error creating step 
---------------------------------------------------------------------------- 
| Trapped Exception: XXXX
| Trapped Message: java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: XXXX
 

Environment

All supported DevTest releases.

Cause

Missing required jar file not on the Coordinator or Simulator machine.

Resolution

The remote Coordinator/Simulator cannot find step because a custom jar file is missing.

In the DevTest_Home/hotDeploy directory on the remote machine, copy the custom jar file to the DevTest_Home/hotDeploy on the remote Coordinator and Simulator machines.

A restart of the remote Coordinator/Simulator is not required.

Restage stage the test to the remote Coordinator again.
