Red Hat Linux, Jenkins version 1.505
When I kill a running job in Jenkins at the very early stage of its build, it doesn't get killed and goes to a null state. I can't see that in the main console, but when I go to the job page, I see the job running. I am unable to kick off another build for the same job as it says that the job is already running. Please see the screenshot.
The only way I have for now is to restart jenkins. It has been happening quite frequently in the past 2-3 days time. Please send me a resolution for this at the earliest, it is not easy to restart jenkins very often in a busy day.
Disable the job and then enable the job.. You will see that all jobs has killed and not rerunning.
I didn't want to disseminate data onto different JIRA issues
A good idea as long as it never misleads or contradicts. As soon as that happens it's a mess and you need to figure out what's going on. Since you can mark jobs as being related, this shouldn't be an issue.
Not sure why this got reassigned away from me. I committed the fix to the known issue. (If there are other issues with similar symptoms, they should be filed separately and linked.)
I observed the same issue in the Jenkins version. 1.625.3. The issue occurred in the Multi-configuration project job. In my case the issue appeared after changing the Job weight of the Multi-configuration project job to 2 from 1. The next build of the Multi-configuration project job were non responsive. The non-responsive build under the build history displayed the on hover message "Started Null ago, Estimated remaining time: null." Could trigger the next build after reverting the job weight to 1 and after enabling the job configuration option "Execute concurrent builds if necessary"
@Daniel I reopened before seing your comment, because the symptoms are exactly the same at first sight, and I didn't want to disseminate data onto different JIRA issues when it seemed to be the same one.
But if needed I can still file a new one, and link to here.
