Simple local commandline job hanging in Windows7

Reported by Sankar Venkitachalam | June 15th, 2012 @ 02:02 PM

  • Issue Type: Bug
  • Rundeck version:
  • JDK Version: 1.6.x
  • Server OS: Windows 7
    • Install type: Jar (If War, include your app server name and version)


I am trying to execute a simple .cmd file in a Local Windows installation.

contents of C:/local/rundeckscripts/remotecopy.cmd as follows:

echo "Testing script with "
echo "Completed testing"

resource definition:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

Project definition ( I think I am not using the options below since the job script is defined explicitly ? )

Project Project1 configuration, generated

Fri Jun 15 16:21:00 EDT 2012

plugin.script-exec.default.command=c\:\Program Files (x86)\PuTTY\putty -session rdeck1
plugin.script-copy.default.command=c\:\Program Files (x86)\PuTTY\pscp -load rdeck1 readme.txt l002600@fastdnvl0378.testdomain.net

Job definition:

  • 4f99aa07-5811-403f-8e26-3228dc981188 DEBUG
  • /local/rundeckscripts/remotecopy.cmd JobDesc11 Job1
  • Project1
  • 1 false true ascending 4f99aa07-5811-403f-8e26-3228dc981188
  • tag1

Changing the path immidietely throws an error, so the path does not seem to be the issue. I am not getting the command line output and the job runs for ever. Eventually I have to kill it. Are Windows command lines supported. Also does backward forward slash , drive letter etc matter ? I have attached log file. The dispatcherxxxx.tmp output is follows:

echo "Testing script with "
echo "Completed testing"

I am stuck with this for a day, would appreciate any help.

Please also let me know where the job definition is stored.
