Resolution

If the Gerrit server has not started for some reason you may need to restart it manually.

1. Restart from the UI

First try to restart the server from the UI. Go to Manage Jenkins > Gerrit Trigger and click on the red ball of the server:

This may take a few seconds during which you’ll see the red ball flashing.

If the server has successfully started you should see a blue ball (or green if you have the GreenBalls plugin install) like the following:

2. Restart with a Groovy Script

If for some reason the restart from the UI did not work, you can run the following Groovy script under Manage Jenkins > Script Console (replace $SERVER_NAME by the name of your Gerrit server in Jenkins):

import com.sonyericsson.hudson.plugins.gerrit.trigger.GerritServer
import com.sonyericsson.hudson.plugins.gerrit.trigger.PluginImpl

def serverName = "$SERVER_NAME"

GerritServer server = PluginImpl.getInstance().getServer(serverName);

//Print some information about the connection
println "GerritServer '${server.getName()}"
println " Connected? ${server.isConnected()}"
println " ConnectionError? ${server.isConnectionError()}"
println " isTimeoutWakeup? ${server.timeoutWakeup}"

println " Restarting server...'"
server.restartConnection()

Then check under Manage Jenkins > Gerrit Trigger that you server has successfully restarted. Again, this may take a few seconds.

Troubleshooting Further

To troubleshoot the connection problem further, you can add a logger for the following packages:

com.sonyericsson.hudson.plugins.gerrit
com.sonymobile.tools.gerrit.gerritevents

Then reproduce the steps above and see if you see any errors, warnings or exceptions in the log.

Open a Support ticket if you are stuck at this point adding a Support Bundle generated after adding the logger and the file $JENKINS_HOME/gerrit-trigger.xml.
