The B@D development team has been investigating if there are any issues
with the use of the B@D VM on Windows. The ticket
is being used to collect information and workarounds.

Briefly the current issues/state is as follows:

- We are using virtualbox rather than rsync for config.vm.synced_folder
- core.autocrlf=input is needed in the git settings for the scripts to
run under Debian (and an ssh client either via git or another route)
- We need to look at a substitute for ser2net running on the host in
order to open a connection from the VM to the BBB
- The VM installs and both the KernelCI webserver and Lava2 run
- Having built a kernel the build does not appear in the KernelCI web
interface, there's a long delay before it times out
- Health checks can be created but they don't appear to run, the admin
interface knows about the devices but they don't appear in
Scheduler->All Devices

This testing has been carried out directly from the pure Vagrant install
- once this is running the pre-loaded Vagrant box will also be tested.

Further work is continuing to get B@D fully operational on a Windows 10 host.
To report on the progress since Friday:

- KernelCI does not work with Microsoft Edge or Internet Explorer - we
recommend the use of firefox to display kernel build results - where
the KernelCI web interface does work.
- The hostname in the VM is different when run from windows a MR
has been created to deal with both versions of this
- The QEMU health check now runs on the W10 virtual machine
- The BBB health check will run when connecting to a BBB attached to a
debian machine from the Windows VM both with the linaro kernel and a
locally built one
Can someone confirm the above results, please? Now that Robert is the only person working on the testing front, double checking his results by other companies/contributors becomes almost imperative.

Thank you Robert, good progress this week.

As usual, you can also meet us at #cip in freenode.

- We are still in progress of creating and testing a local initiramfs
and configuring the FTDI connection correctly
