Is --mode set to "auto" ?   if not, did you enter anything for the test server?
Comment 2 Petr Beňas 2013-10-16 10:06:21 EDT
I have used no --mode or --server arguments, just "hwcert-backend plan". I was not asked for the server either.  But it looks like when --auto is used, this problem does not happen.
Comment 3 Greg Nichols 2013-10-16 11:47:53 EDT
I'm not clear on what the problem is then.   You should be able to enter the server host name, or leave it blank, and continue.
Comment 4 Petr Beňas 2013-10-17 05:48:39 EDT
I am terribly sorry, notabug. The hwcert is not stuck, but asking for the server. I was confused by wording of "Local Hardware Certification Test Server: " because it does not contain something like "Please enter" or a question mark. So my apologies, it is not a bug.
Comment 5 Greg Nichols 2013-10-17 09:13:42 EDT
If it confused you, it's a bug.

Let's leave it open - perhaps we could make the prompt a bit more clear with "Please enter".
