Buildbot Startup / Post-clone automation

Install Buildbot

Install Buildbot using the following batch script. You will need to find a way to get this batch script onto the system. This installs buildbot into %mozillabuild%\buildbotve, using the version in the SET at the top. It gets Python packages from the puppet master specified in pkg_root. Note that runas /administrator doesn't work in W7, so you'll need to use VNC to install (below)

You will need to do this with administrator privs. The only way to get these privs is to right-click "Command Prompt" on the start menu, and select "Run as Administrator". Then use 'wget' to download the file.

REM REMEMBER: "Run as Administrator"
wget -O c:\
dir C:\

The Task Scheduler is used to start Buildbot on boot. To enable it, run the following in a cmd window:

cd c:\users\cltbld\desktop
wget -OstartTalos.bat --no-check-certificate
wget -O"talos slave.xml" --no-check-certificate
schtasks /create /xml "talos slave.xml" /tn slave

  • set startTalos.bat to start on run
    • see although details are vague
    • In Task Manager, add a new task:
      • Run in C:\, run as cltbld, run only when logged in, run with highest priviledges
      • Triggers: at log on
      • Action: start c:\Users\cltbld\Desktop\startTalos.bat
      • Conditions: stop if idle ceases, start only on AC power, stop on switch to battery
      • Settings: Allow to run on demand, stop if running for more than 3 days, force stop if it does not stop when requested

Path Verification

With all of this done, the %PATH% should be:

%SystemRoot%\system32;%SystemRoot%;%SystemRoot%\System32\Wbem;%SYSTEMROOT%\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\;c:\python26;c:\python26\scripts;C:\Program Files (x86)\GnuWin32\bin;c:\mozilla-build\msys\bin;c:\mozilla-build\hg;c:\mozilla-build\vim\vim72;c:\mozilla-build\python25;c:\mozilla-build\7zip;c:\mozilla-build\info-zip;c:\mozilla-build\wget;c:\mozilla-build\python25\scripts
