Description of problem:
/distribution/install is failing very often. Then no other test starts.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Version - 0.5.52
50% on last friday
Steps to Reproduce:
1. schedule a job
/distribution/install is the first test which fails.
the whole satellite test suite is lost.
rhel48 or rhel55 has to be installed
/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
Is this still an issue ?
no answer. closing
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.
