I see a couple options.

StorageProxy has this constant:

    private static final boolean OPTIMIZE_LOCAL_REQUESTS = true; //
set to false to test messagingservice path on single node

So, you could make it an instance variable and create a SP object with
it set to false for tests.

Or, you could do a test using ccm for multinode control, as in the test on
