What does the dispatcher use LAVA_SERVER_IP for in a standalone setup

Asked by Mustafa Faraj on 2012-02-23

I am trying to run job in a standalone environment through lava-dispatch using the following command:

(one)gumstix@hwlab:/srv/lava/instances/one/bin$ sudo ./lava-dispatch /srv/lava/instances/one/job/overo-job.json --config-dir=/srv/lava/instances/one/lib/python2.7/site-packages/lava_dispatcher/default-config/lava-dispatcher/devices/overo.conf

and that is currently getting stuck in the deploy_linaro_image phase of the job. It gets stuck in pinging the LAVA_SERVER_IP specified in the lava-dispatcher.conf file. I am not sure why it is trying to contact the server, especially since I am running this in a standalone setup. Is there something I am missing, or is there a workaround to this issue?

Thanks.

The way deployment currently works, the image you are trying to deploy is downloaded onto the server, it runs linaro-media-create (or not if you give it the whole image) then extracts the root and boot images as tarballs. Those are then downloaded from the device you are trying to test. So your device needs to know the server, and base url to download those things from, which are specified in the lava-dispatcher.conf file under your instance etc. directory.

Hi I am trying to run a job without PDU by manual disconnecting and connecting of power supply to panda baord but I am gettign some error I am not getting what could be the issue. Can you analyse the log and tell me the sollution for the issue.

Hi,

You’ve lost the testrootfs partition label from your test image. There are plans to actually get rid of the requirement for this label, but until then you’ll have to go onto the test image through a serial connection and make it your self.
