Precise Build Containers for Enterprise

System Setup #

Platform Requirements: Precise Build Containers are supported for Travis CI Enterprise version 2.0 and higher. We recommend Trusty Build Environments for Travis CI Enterprise 2.2+, as Trusty Build Environments are the default environment.

To Legacy workers as default on Travis CI Enterprise 2.2+, override the fault behavior in the Admin Dashboard at https://<your-travis-ci-enterprise-domain>:8800/settings#override_default_dist_enable

Worker Requirements: The Legacy worker must be running Ubuntu 14.04 LTS as an underlying operating system. We recommend using AWS’s c3.2xlarge as the instance type. Port 22 must be open for SSH during installation and operation.

In addition, Precise build containers and Trusty build containers must be on different instances. To run both Precise and Trusty builds, at least two worker instances are required.

Precise (Legacy) Worker Installation #

Once a worker instance is up and running, travis-worker can be installed as follows:

For instances on AWS, please run:

curl -sSL -o /tmp/

sudo bash /tmp/ \
--travis_enterprise_host="[]" \
--travis_enterprise_security_token="[RabbitMQ Password/Enterprise Security Token] \

For non-AWS instances, please run:

curl -sSL -o /tmp/

sudo bash /tmp/ \
--travis_enterprise_host="[]" \
--travis_enterprise_security_token="[RabbitMQ Password/Enterprise Security Token]"

This installer uses Docker’s aufs storage driver. If you have any questions or concerns, please get in touch with us to discuss alternatives.

Restarting travis-worker #

After installation, or when configuration changes are applied to the worker, restart the worker as follows:

sudo service travis-worker restart

Worker configuration changes are applied on start.

Have you made any customizations to your setup? While we may be able to see some information (such as hostname, IaaS provider, and license expiration), there are many other things we can’t see which could lead to something not working. Therefore , we’d like to ask you to also answer the questions below in your support request (if applicable):

  • How many machines are you using?
  • Do you use configuration management tools (Chef, Puppet)?
  • Which other services do interface with Travis CI Enterprise?
  • Do you use Travis CI Enterprise together with or GitHub Enterprise?
  • If you’re using GitHub Enterprise, which version of it?

We’re looking forward to helping!
