As mentioned before I dropped the mongo db on the remote server prior to the issues I reported. So, this time, I again dropped the mongo db, scheduled my test for a remote run, updated the project files on the scheduled run as the reference instructs. The test executed. No joy.
I also created a new project with just this one test script. I tried a number of variations for the page element on matching on base url, relative path url, title name, etc. thinking possible the error starts there. Again, no joy.
Leaving that idea aside, in the test script, I have it first click on the intended frame (and it matches successfully just on ID). I then attempt to see if an element interior to the frame is enabled and it fails as usual (attempting to match, as the logs previously provided demonstrate, not on id but on src and use query = true).
At this point, I am giving up. We'll have to set the tests up to run locally (not an ideal situation) and separately from a number of composite test scripts.
I do appreciate your help though. Thanks very much.
