The hudson job page is here. Recent failing jobs have been: #3000, #3002, #3003, #3005.

This problem has shown up in the 4.0 branch job too:

This reminds me of the Heisenberg uncertainty principle. The moment I add diag code to the portion of the tests that fail - POOF. They don't fail anymore. And something seemingly completely different fails.

I've marked it for 4.0.1

I don't know what the real problem is. I'll just keep adding more and better diagnosis code directly into the tests and we'll find out in due course.

The failed test on the 4.0 branch is restart-domain. This issue is about a start-cluster issue.

I suspect that it's gremlins that are only seen in automated tests. I can't ever reproduce it.

Byron, John Wells suggested adding a build step to the end of the hudson job that would look for an ASMain processes that are left after the run and then run jstack on them. This might help in determining if the failure to start the server is caused by a deadlock.

I'm wondering if it is the same problem as I observed on the gf-transaction-cluster-devtest since November, until I changed the tests to dynamically determine the ports grabbed by the instances in a new cluster.
