State of play: It appears to be working - I need to do more testing to validate this.
== Fixed items ==
I had to correct the following items as follows: -
Test Agent: [Register with Test Controller]: MACHINE NAME:6901
== Post Morton ==
I was previously setting Test Agent: [Register with Test Controller]: agent1:6901 and this did not work
I suspect that I still do not have the best practice configurations set (see below), I think that I need to create two new users on the dev box and the same two users on the TFS box. The users need to be called something like
Controller Service account: [tfsDev2Controller1Svc] member of [Agent Administrators group]
Agent Service account: [tfsDev2Agent1]
== Current working Configuration (not best practice) ==
Test Agent: User Name [MachineName\MyAdminLoginName]
Psw: [my psw]
Test Agent: Log on automatically for security related info: [checked]
Test Agent: Ensure screen saver is disabled: [checked]
Test Agent: button [Run Options]: never pressed, never clicked this button
Test Agent: Register with Test Controller: [checked]
Test Agent: Register with test agent with the following Test Controller: MachineName:6901
Test Controller: This account: .\MyLoginName (notice the .\ before the login name)
Psw: [my psw]
Test Controller: Register with Team Project Collection: [checked]
Test Controller: Register the test controller with the following team proj col: http://tfsSvrName:8080/tfs/defaultcollection
Test Controller: Configure for load testing: [checked]
Test Controller: Create load test results dbase in the following server instance: SQL Svr instance name (Machinename in my case cos I have a local sql server instance running on this dev box uses windows login authentication)
== Things you can try / investigate ==
The firewall might be blocking communications, check the firewall logs, try and ping the boxes
