Subject RE: [windows1] Pixelbender installation
Date Thu, 12 Dec 2013 08:45:39 GMT
So, the slave is configured for 'web start' via JNLP and that is how it is
currently connected.

The 'service' was also running (which JNLP can control too) so I turned that
off and set it to

'maunal' start only.

 

There are 3 builds running. I'll reboot the server at an appropriate
interval within the next hour or 

so and we'll try again.

 

Gav.

Hi Gav,

 

Any updates on this issue?

 

Thanks,

I could, but I don't understand, this Jenkins slave has been running as a
service since the day
I built it years ago.

Gav...

 

I don't understand too, but doing this in our test environment fixed the
problem, whereas manually setting the interactive flag did not.  As you
mentioned earlier, something somewhere reset the interactive flag on the
root process.  Unless you want to dig deeper and figure out what happened, I
think that restarting it to run as a JNLP slave agent should fix the problem
(as per Jenkins' docs) .  

Do you have any other ideas on how to fix this?

Thanks,
Om
