Description

remote/remote_controller connects to YaST installation via vncviewer on fullscreen: https://openqa.suse.de/tests/807856#step/remote_controller/36 which is sub-optimal as we can't send some control keys over this connection, e.g. 'Ctrl-Alt-Fx' - the Ctrl part is 'lost' on the way (probably grabbed by X on the system, which executed vncviewer).

We could use select_console 'sut' in remote_ssh_target_{ftp,nfs} jobs as we do for such purposes on svirt. That is: openQA worker will connect to the YaST installation on it's own.

Parallel job remote_ssh_controller is probably not needed then.

Checklist

  • add_console 'sut'
  • select_console 'sut' when YaST tells us to do so
  • Remove remote_ssh_controller?
  • Remote SSH installation
  • Remote VNC installation

  • Checklist changed from [ ] add_console 'sut', [ ] select_console 'sut' when YaST tells us to do so, [ ] Remove remote_ssh_controller? to [ ] add_console 'sut', [ ] select_console 'sut' when YaST tells us to do so, [ ] Remove remote_ssh_controller?, [ ] Remote SSH installation, [ ] Remote VNC installation

There are 2 remote installation tests:
SSH: remote_ssh_target_ftp (installation is done from remote_ssh_controller)
VNC: remote_vnc_target_nfs (installation is done from remote_vnc_controller)

You can explore possibility of improving both of them.
