      Description

      I'm trying to add a windows slave to my master. when doing so, any of the start up commands fail:

      1) Launch agent from browser on slave
      2) java -jar slave.jar -jnlpUrl https://<hostname.domain>:443/computer/<windows_slave>/slave-agent.jnlp -secret <huge_hex_string>

      In the 1st case it tells: "Unable to launch the application"
      java.lang.NullPointerException
      at com.sun.deploy.security.DeployManifestChecker.verify(Unknown Source)
      [..........]

      In the second case it tells:
      Failing to obtain https://<hostname.domain>:443/computer/<windows_slave>/slave-agent.jnlp?encrypt=true
      java.io.IOException
      https://<hostname.domain>:443/computer/<windows_slave>/slave-agent.jnlp?encrypt=true doesn't look like a JNLP file; content type was text/html charset=utf-8

      Any hint?
      Thanks!

          I guess you need the slave-agent.jnlp contents. Could you please tell me that part you'd be interested in to sent it?

          Thanks!

          And another thing that I have no mentioned, we've installed a SSO authentication in front of the master for login purposes. I do not know if this can be making a mess

          That may well be it. Make sure you can wget (or similar) Jenkins URLs properly.

          Since this is an issue tracker, and not a support site, I'm resolving this as Not A Defect.

          I am getting the same error while trying to connect to a windows slave from my master Jenkins which has SSO authentication enabled. Any suggestion how to fix this issue ?
