Estimated time:


In the following test:
(this issue is only seen in nvdimm (baremetal) tests)
mr_test install saptune/sapconf, then calls for a reboot. After the reboot, it fails to match the pxe screen (it is not present on the screenshots).
However, checking the video recorder, the pxe prompt can be seen for almost 30s until it timeouts and boots to the SUT.

Hi emiura, I suggest to always use the "Report test issue" button on openQA to provide more details in tickets. Can you update the ticket description accordingly?

In autoinst-log.txt I found references to errors and warnings that I suggest you fix first, e.g.

  • Subject changed from openqa is not detecting pxe boot screen to test fails in mr_test

About the failures:
This screen is the last one before reboot:
Until you can only see the baremetal machine pxe boot steps. Then in the system already booted past grub.
The code is trying to match a pxe bootscreen from qam networks, but it is not "visible" there (but they are present on the video recording)
Also, how do I prevent that test to be erased automatically?

An "important" job is kept for longer, based on job group settings. That has already happened here because you referenced the job URL in the ticket here and I followed that link so that openQA automatically added a backlink. See
for details.
