VS 2010 - Different Timeouts in Testsettings file

The following are the different types of timeouts that can be configured in testsettings file:
  • agentNotRespondingTimeout
  • deploymentTimeout
  • runTimeout
  • scriptTimeout
  • testTimeout
Setting these timeouts are not very obvious when the testsetting is opened with 'Test Settings Editor'. Hence, open the testsettings file in 'XML (text) Editor'

You can then add various timeouts in milliseconds in the Timeouts node under the Execution node.
<TestSettings name="Local" id="46d8e12e-16c0-4ba4-9dd9-eda66fb2ccc6" xmlns="">
   <Description>These are default test settings for a local test run.</Description>
     <Timeouts agentNotRespondingTimeout="1800000" deploymentTimeout="" runTimeout="1800000" scriptTimeout="1800000" testTimeout="1800000"/>

VS 2010 - Create Load Test Repository

One day I found that my Load Test Reporsitory is missing and hence I was not able to run the load tests.
The load tests were failing with the error:
Microsoft Visual Studio
Error occurred running test. The load test results database could not be opened.  Check that the load test results database specified by the connect string for your test controller (or local machine) specifies a database that contains the load test schema and that is currently available.  For more information, see the Visual Studio help topic 'About the Load Test Results Store'.   The connection error was: An error occurred while attempting to create the load test results repository schema: Cannot find the object 'LoadTestTestCaseSummary', because it does not exist or you do not have permission.

To resolve this issue, I followed the below steps:
1) Open VS command prompt in elevated mode (Run As Administrator)
2) Run the command "cd C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\Common7\IDE"
3) Run the command "SQLCMD /S localhost\sqlexpress /i loadtestresultsrepository.sql "
