Slave machines

Fail fail

Note this test will probably fail: rhbz#1147978 rhbz#1147831


  1. ensure that Jenkins is running
  2. you will need a virtual machine with SSH access for this test (or another physical machine)
  3. this test case depends on plugins test case

How to test

  1. go to http://localhost:8080/computer/new
  2. enter node name: "slave1" and select "Dumb Slave" option
  3. click OK
  4. set "Remote root directory" to "/tmp/jenkins"
    • this is just for test
  5. make sure that "Launch method" is set to "Launch slave agents on Unix machines via SSH"
  6. set "Host" to your VM's hostname/IP
  7. click "Add" next to "Credentials"
  8. from "Kind", select "Username with password"
  9. enter username and password which jenkins can use to access the VM
  10. click "Add"
    • you should be back in slave configuration screen and your credentials should be selected in "credentials" drop-down menu
  11. click "Save"
  12. go to http://localhost:8080/computer/slave1/
    • note "slave1" in URL is name of the slave, replace it with correct name if needed
  13. and click "Launch slave agent"
    • you should see console output which indicates that slave machine is up and running
  14. go to http://localhost:8080/computer/slave1/script
    • and try to execute command: println "uname -a".execute().text
  15. click "run"
    • you should see the output of "uname -a" executed on slave machine

Expected Results

  1. user shouldn't encounter any error messages or unexpected stacktraces, everything should work as described
