      Description

      I'm seeing the following problem with the latest version (i.e. 1.5) of the promoted builds plugin.
      Even though i tie a job on which promotions are defined to the master, Hudson is trying to execute some of the promotions on the slave(s) resulting in the following error.

      Started by user <abc>
      Building remotely on lnx-slave-1
      FATAL: Failed to mkdirs: /opt/hudson/conf/jobs/<job-name>/workspace
      java.io.IOException: Failed to mkdirs: /opt/hudson/conf/jobs/<job-name>/workspace

      at hudson.model.Executor.run(Executor.java:123)

      Error seen in the hudson UI for a promotion failing due to above error is "promotion didn't happen.......re-execute the promotion"

      For now, "Andrew bayer" suggested the following workaround and it works nicely.

      a.) goto "/opt/hudson/conf/jobs/<job-name>/promotions/<promotion-name>
      b.) Open the "config.xml" and add the following 2 lines

      <assignedNode>master</assignedNode>
      <canRoam>false</canRoam>

      c.) Once you add these lines, goto "Hudson->Manage Hudson" and click on "Reload configuration from the disk".
      d.) Re-execute the promotion and it will work now.
