Required Data: OC-CM communication issues

Issue

A CM does not get connected with OC

Quick resolution check

Please, notice that most of the communication issues happen because:

  1. There is proxy set-up in the CM under Manage Jenkins -> Manage plugins [Advanced tab] and the OC hostname was not added to No Proxy Host section. If the URL to access OC is http://cjoc.jenkins.example.com, then it is expected to have just cjoc.jenkins.example.com in the No Proxy Host section.
  2. The ELB/…/HAProxy is not correctly configured for the JNLP port. The recommendation is NOT to use the ELB/…/HAProxy, but instead bypass this intermediate element by adding this Java Argument in OC -Dhudson.TcpSlaveAgentListener.hostName=<OC_MACHINE_HOSTNAME>. If you don’t want to perform a restart, after adding the Java Argument you can use TcpSlaveAgentListener.CLI_HOST_NAME="CJOC_HOSTNAME".

Environment

  • CloudBees Jenkins Platform (CJP)
  • Operations Center (OC)
  • Client Master (CM)
  • CloudBees Jenkins Enterprise (CJE)

Required Data check list

  • Support bundle
  • Connectivity table
  • Client Master connectivity logs
  • Proxy configuration screenshot

Support bundle

A support bundle from BOTH OC and the affected CM after the issue is exposed. Please, follow the KB below in case you don’t know how to generate a support bundle.

  • [What is a support-bundle and how to create one][]

Also notice that in case you cannot access to the UI, you can still take one support bundle from the support folder in $JENKINS_HOME/support

Connectivity table

From OC dashboard go to the CM item and push the connection details from OC to the CM

Then, take a screenshot of this table and attach it to the ticket.

Client Master connectivity logs

After you hit the button Join Operations Center from the previous step you will get the connectivity logs from this CM. Please, attach them to the ticket.
