Description of problem:
For some recipes, the valid generated kickstart is so big it doesn't fit into the database "rendered_kickstart" table "kickstart" column (of size 65535).
beakerd tries repeatedly and fails repeatedly, the recipe stays in Scheduled state.
Have a recipe with a huge kickstart, e.g. clone this one:
The kickstart of the linked recipe is so big because
a) it is a group job, group having +- 70 members
b) Beaker adds all the ssh keys of all the group members to the kickstart
The ssh-keys portion of the kickstrat is 40k.
beaker-server error log:
pretty-printed part of the kickstart as parsed from the log message:
Space usable for Kickstart is now 2 ** 24 - 1.
In case you will breach even this limit, the job is aborted.
not fixed, see for details:
