KBEA-00077 - Running multiple versions of Cygwin on a cluster

Summary

Builds require different versions of Cygwin.

Solution

It is necessary to use the resources feature in the Cluster Manager to create separate 'slices' of the cluster for each version of Cygwin. For example, if you had:

Host1 : agent1, agent2, agent3      <- Cygwin 1.5.25

Host2 : agent1, agent2, agent3      <- Cygwin 1.7.7

You would create two resources (you can configure these in the Cluster Manager):

Resource_cygwin_1_5_25 : Host1

Resource_cygwin_1_7_7 : Host2

Then when running a build that uses, for example, 1.5.25, you would specify the following additional eMake parameter:


--emake-resource=Resource_cygwin_1_5_25

Note that this technique does not require building separate clusters for each version of Cygwin.
