      When changing an existing node environment variable (%JENKINS_BUILD_REPOSITORY%) value in the node's configuration dialog, the change is not applied. Looking at the systemInfo of the node shows, that the variable still has got the old value. Also reloading the Jenkins configuration from disk did not help.
      The only thing that seems to help is a reboot of the jenkins server. Restarting the slave isn't enough.
      Here is some more detail from the developers using Jenkins for their builds.
      I know you should only have to restart the Jenkins slave service and know how to do that. I’ve tried that. I’ve also tried rebooting the machine, which also restarts the Jenkins slave service. Same result.

      I’ve checked the environment variables on our build server (BOSBLD-TEAM6):

      I’ve run a build job and captured the batch file that gets deployed to our build server to actually run the build, the contents of which are:
      cd "%JENKINS_INT_BUILD_VIEW%\release_eng\Build_scripts\scripts\PS"
      powershell.exe -NoProfile -ExecutionPolicy unrestricted -Command "%JENKINS_INT_BUILD_VIEW%\release_eng\Build_scripts\scripts\PS\PSBuild.ps1" ait DB -DownloadProprietaryIfNewer "%JENKINS_BUILD_REPOSITORY%"
      exit %ERRORLEVEL%

      I’ve executed this batch file on our build server directly and get the expected results:
      Using staging area: '\\bosrdfs1\MakoSP2_Build\MakoSP2_Bld_0400'.

      The problem is, when the build is run from our Jenkins page, it doesn’t reflect the proper version:
      Using staging area: '\\bosrdfs1\MakoSP2_Build\MakoSP2_Bld_0200'.
