We don't need the server to be running (and in fact would prefer it not be), we just need the install trees, binaries, etc. This could either be handled by adding the packages to our jenkins unit/integration test worker images, or we could just pull and extract the relevant packages from our test harness during every test run. The latter would of course require a lot more data transfer and runs the risk of failure if the download fails, but is flexible. Either solution is fine.

We decided to route around the problem: we already have 9.6 on travis, and maintaining the unit tests on jenkins is providing no additional value. So we're going to stop doing unit tests in jenkins.
