Description

I was trying to look into the following error from "rudder remote"

@rudder-master:/root # rudder remote run client.domain.tld
error Rudder agent was interrupted during execution by a fatal error
Run with -i to see log messages.

  1. Summary #####################################################################
    0 components verified in 1 directives
    execution time: 0.67s
    ################################################################################@

I could see in tcpdump my master is calling out to the end system so I was uncertain if it did something or not.
To provoke more work on the remote side, I gave -Dforce_inventory, and then added -i which seems to not work like that.

@rudder-master:/root # rudder remote run client.domain.tld -Dforce_inventory
error Rudder agent was interrupted during execution by a fatal error
Run with -i to see log messages.

I tried read hard to get proper formatting on this but it seems redmine does hate me, so I'll just leave it as it is.

Fixes #11318: rudder remote run error, and unable to pass -i option

Does this error happen on all your nodes or just this one ?

#3 Updated by Florian Heigl over 1 year ago

Hi,

the error was on multiple, but the report is about that -i doesn't work :)

#4 Updated by Vincent MEMBRÉ over 1 year ago

  • Target version changed from 4.1.7 to 4.1.8

#5 Updated by François ARMAND about 1 year ago

Hi,

There seems to be technical limit on CFEngine "remote run" implementation for now... It seems deep rooted and may be difficult to correct.

Thanks for reporting!

#6 Updated by Florian Heigl about 1 year ago

Again: The issue is about the parser issue that -i does not work if you give -D

#7 Updated by Benoît PECCATTE about 1 year ago

The problem is as follow:
  • when using -Dforce_inventory there is no report thats is done (which is expected)
  • missing reports are incorrectly detected because of #9807
  • missing reports trigger a message "run with -i"
  • running with -i does not give as many log remotely as locally
So :
  • -i does not give expected result with remote-run because of cfengine limitation
  • in this case there is no real error and no need to run with -i

#8 Updated by Florian Heigl about 1 year ago

We found that remote-run does not have the UPDATE_OPTIONS variable, whereas agent-run does have it.
So this seems to be an issue with the option parser, probably the one in agent-run is a tad newer than the one in remote-run.

#10 Updated by Benoît PECCATTE about 1 year ago

The UPDATE_OPTIONS in "rudder agent run" are used to pass options to "rudder agent update" when -u is used.
"rudder remote run" does not have an option to force update remotely (it just does it)

i've been testing the remote run command, and it's been painfully hard (on centos7, rudder 4.1.17)
The order of argument is important
Ok:

rudder remote run -ait RzZX185IOUGHBGS0Xfy7LpBx6VyIxjSD

NOK: no token found

rudder remote run -a -t RzZX185IOUGHBGS0Xfy7LpBx6VyIxjSD 

NOK: no target found

rudder remote run  -t RzZX185IOUGHBGS0Xfy7LpBx6VyIxjSD  -a

we should at least fix the doc, but using workable options is a necessity
