ReleaseEngineering/How To/Request That a Machine Be Reimaged
Slave class specific instructions
So ... off the bat ... RelEng can perform reimages directly. Please only raise a bug to ask RelOps to do it, if the following instructions are not sufficient enough. And in that case, please ask Rel Ops the procedure, so we can update this doc.
Other / if all else fails
If all else fails, and the above instructions do not help you:
- File a bug to reimage the machine, mark it as blocking the slave's problem tracking bug.
- If a releng bug doesn't already exist for the slave, file a new one to bring the slave back into production, e.g., 'set up re-imaged slave talos-r3-slave99'. Make the server operations bug block the releng bug.
- Add the slave to the slave tracking spreadsheet with a link to the appropriate bug.
