  • TryScheduler is setup, need to test it.

Sept. 26, 2006

  • Big Errors when attempting to use 'buildbot try'. Posted to the mailing list about it.

Sept. 28, 2006

  • Win2 was imaged and win4 and win5 brought online.
  • linux12 - linux15 were brought online.

  • Buildbot maintainer replied to my mailing list post. What he says looks promising, I will be testing it out this weekend.

  • Fixed the first error with 'buildbot try'. Getting a new problem related to 'cvs diff', need to post to the mailing list again.

  • New problem can be fixed by adding '-N' flag. Need to post to mailing list and see if this can be changed in trunk.

  • Port forwards to the VMs were enabled. I spent a few hours figuring out why I couldn't connect to the Windows 2003 server with RDP, turns out the encryption level was too high.
  • shaver would like to get a list of things we need to do before bringing new VMs online. I think this is a good idea. It would be unfortunate if projects were held up because of politics.
