      Description

      After upgrading the plugin from 1.8 -> 1.9, I could no longer launch EC2 slaves. A log excerpt would show something like the following:

      ...
      Verifying that java exists
      java full version "1.6.0_15-b03"
      Copying slave.jar
      Launching slave agent
      ...
      Then an IOException about the channel being closed unexpectedly (sorry, didn't capture the trace). Eventually the launch would time out and it would try again and again with no success.

      After looking at the svn log I noticed the following change (r33881), which seemed to be where it was dying:

      • sess.execCommand("java -jar /tmp/slave.jar");
        + sess.execCommand("java " + computer.getNode().jvmopts + " -jar /tmp/slave.jar");

      It occurred to me that maybe the jvmopts value didn't exist in the 1.8-style EC2 config, so I saved the AMI with "-verbose" in the JVM options field, saved the config, and launched an EC2 slave successfully. I killed that slave, blanked out the JVM options field, saved again, and again successfully launched an EC2 slave.

      Maybe the plugin needs to guard against a null value from older configs or else massage old configs to fit into the new "schema" or something?

          I had a similar issue trying to start a Windows slave (using the ec2-sshd project).

          For me, I was missing a c:\tmp folder, so the /tmp/slave.jar wasn't being created properly.

          The IOException is a bit of a red herring in my case.

          For what its worth, I found the ec2-sshd method very slow compared to launching the agent via JNLP.

          The plugin is now at v1.13 and this issue seems to be about the upgrade to 1.9.
          So perhaps this issue could be closed?

          I think the requester is right about the issue being the value from the older configs.

          Fixed in 1.14, not actually tested with an older configuration, but should handle the null value of jvmopts gracefully.
