Description Alan Cutter 2013-02-17 19:08:01 PST
All the GCE bots were terminated over the weekend.
Bots affected:
 - commit-queue
 - cr-linux-ews/chromium-ews
 - cr-linux-debug-ews
 - style-queue
 - feeder-queue
 - sheriffbot

The problem is the image we were using (ubuntu-10-04-v20120621) was obsoleted.
CE recommends using gcel-10-04-v20130104 instead.

The hard coded /dev/vdb no longer exists, we should be using /dev/ephemeral-disk-0 to access the ephemeral disk.
Comment 1 Alan Cutter 2013-02-17 21:56:18 PST
A partition on /dev/ephemeral-disk-0 is created as /dev/ephemeral-disk-0-part1.
These are soft links to /dev/sdb and /dev/sdb1 respectively.
The soft links are not always created in time for the script to use them and it fails to create a fs or mount it. This happened in 12/15 cases.
With this is mind it is better to use /dev/sdb and /dev/sdb1 directly. If the image changes again in future this will be a thing to lookout for in case it differs again.

Another difference on this image is that /etc/hosts doesn't have general read access thus things are unable to connect to localhost. This breaks the DRT tests.
Will need to "sudo chmod 644 /etc/hosts" as part of the VM build.

Looks reasonable.

Haha, I too am perplexed that it needed this. It was 640 by default meaning you couldn't ping localhost!

!?  That sounds like a config error in the default image?

I wonder if it warrants a GCE bug.
