The pooler currently has a Japanese Windows Server 2012R2 VM that should be sufficient for the level of testing we'd like to start with against Puppet. It is now usable from beaker-hostgenerator (given final resolution of BKR-1013)

CI job pipelines should be updated to exercise Japanese Windows during acceptance testing (note that these are current job locations and subject to change once CI.next is fully productionized):

Puppet component pipelines

puppet-agent pipelines running "puppet" tests

Based on existing (non-CI.next) pipelines for master and stable These currently includes all major Windows test targets:

    • windows10ent-64a
    • windows10ent-32a
    • windows2008r2-64a
    • windows2008r2-6432a
    • windows2012r2-64a
    • windows2012r2-6432a
    • windows2016-64a
    • windows2016-6432a

This will ensure Beaker tests run on an International version of Windows

Ethan Brown I think LTS has entered the frame since this ticket came to life - do we want to include this, or just test on master and stable?

Comment by Ethan Brown [ 2017/03/15 ]

LTS is not "officially" Japanese compatible... yet. At the point that LTS becomes a 4.y agent, we might want to change things - but for now, master and stable are sufficient.
