/distribution/install is unstable and is it possible to add some feature:

1. pick a machine
2. if /distribution/install fails go to 1 ^

3. start the rest of jobs

no answer. closing
Comment 3 Martin Cermak 2011-09-15 05:32:51 EDT
Bill, this is really a problem IMO. Have you any statistics concerning failed installations? Can you statistically point out hosts that fail most often with /distribution/install? Which distros were requested for them?

Until you haven't this (and the statistical approach is the only meaningful here IMO) you can't start looking for the reason, sure.
