dispatch -N not working from command line

Reported by starlatch | May 12th, 2011 @ 12:40 PM | in Rundeck 1.3 (closed)

I am opening this as a bug that has been confirmed by Noah Campbell over IRC discussion. Here is the link that describes the issue on rundeck newsgroup-


--- SNIP ---

I noticed that the "dispatch -N" filters nodes differently while reporting v/s actual execution. This is same behavior on 1.2 and 1.3. Here is how to test-

  • Created a new pro project
  • Leave the resources.xml as default
  • Create another resource file /var/tmp/resources.xml with following contents
  • Run the dispatch command to first query with -- dispatch -VL -I '.*' -N /var/tmp/resources.xml and we get the expected results
  • Run the dispatch command now to run something remotely -- dispatch -VL -I '.*' -N /var/tmp/resources.xml -- uname -a
  • It only runs on localhost!
