juju bug fixing

Filed under: Blogging,Debian,Ubuntu,Ubuntu-Server — kees @ 9:11 am

My earlier post on juju described a number of weird glitches I ran into. I got invited by hazmat on IRC (freenode #juju) to try to reproduce the problems so we could isolate the trouble.

Fix #1: use the version from the PPA. The juju setup documentation doesn’t mention this, but it seems that adding “juju-origin: ppa” to your ~/.juju/environment.yaml is a good idea. I suggest it be made the default, and to link to the full list of legal syntax for the environment.yaml file. I was not able to reproduce the missing-machines-at-startup problem after doing this, but perhaps it’s a hard race to lose.

Fix #2: don’t use “terminate-machine“. :P There seems to be a problem around doing the following series of commands: “juju remove-unit FOO/N; juju terminate-machine X; juju add-unit FOO“. This makes the provisioner go crazy, and leaves all further attempts to add units stick in “pending” forever.

Big thank you to hazmat and SpamapS for helping debug this.
