Hi Robert,

You will notice that there is no login or password.

When I had problems getting the test to properly log in to the BBB, I copied and modified the script into 'bbb_debian_ramdisk_test2.yaml' to include the username and password. It didn't work at the time, but that was some time ago when I knew less about LAVA.

For everyone's benefit:
The requirement of needing to log into the Beaglebone-Black (BBB) as root prior to running a test is a small, but very annoying and persistent problem that Christos and I ran into when we first started to test live on the BBB. If you watch the log file of the health check as it is being executed, you'll see that the script makes the connection to the BBB, but then it gets hung up. It needs to send a carriage return to the BBB prior to applying the username and password since that is what we have to do when we are trying to telnet into the BBB manually.

I'm trying to solve this by writing an 'expect' script that will: 
1.) Make the connection to the BBB
2.) Wait for something like "'^]'" to be displayed and then wait a second or two
3.) Send the '\r' to the BBB so it advances to the "login:" prompt
4.) Return control back to the Test Script where it *should* issue the username and password.

If this approach works, I *think* we can call the expect script in place of the 'telnet localhost 8020' - and we can update the Device Dictionary so LAVA runs the new command too.

I hope that helps!





Sincerely,

Don Brown. PMP

Don

Our bbb_debian_ramdisk_test2.yaml has a auto_login section defining a
login prompt username and password - was this approach tried and abandoned before
starting to use keeping a telnet session active on the beaglebone-black
tests?

Thank you very much for formatting and publishing the minutes. I see
this as a small but relevant improvement towards transparency.

Dear CIP friends,

as you can read in the meeting minutes of yesterday's TSC meeting[1],
the day before the Open Source Summit Japan starts, May 30th, we will
organise some specific sessions related with CIP in the same venue.

We are in the process of defining what we will do from 11:00 to 17:00.
Feel free to:
* Let us know if you are interested in attending.
* Provide input on the topics you would like to work on, discuss or
receive information.

Maybe creating a wiki page to coordinate the activities would be wise,
right?

Best Regards
