Re: Prompt timeouts on ipc227e board -- randomness related?

Hi!

We investigated the failure job and looks like before getting login prompt job
timeout is happening . In the job definition file - job timeout is mentioned
15mins and sometimes due to slow network issue, it takes more time while
downloading, untar and deploying image. So we are seeing timeout during
login prompt or in some cases in earlier stages also. The work in progress to
double up the network bandwidth within a few weeks, which will reduce the
occurrence of this type of issues.
Thank you for your investigation.
I've have increased the timeout as you have suggested:
https://gitlab.com/cip-project/cip-testing/linux-cip-ci/-/merge_requests/49

One additional thing I've noticed, the default x86 character delay during boot is 500ms, which seems a long time inbetween each character sent to the platform
https://lava.ciplatform.org/scheduler/device/x86-simatic-ipc227e-01/devicedict#defline5

Has a lower value for boot_character_delay ever been tried?>
Thank you, but that board seems to still have problems:

(Of course, I can't rule out kernel problem at the moment, but failing
at setting environment variable would be strange.)
