      Description

      After upgrading Jenkins from 2.3.16 to 2.3.18 on 1st November 2021, we started facing issue with Windows Agent unable to start. If we try to manually start them, it use to start and then immediately show as terminated. After trying lot of fixes, we had to rollback the version to 2.316 and that seems to have fixed the issue.

      So wanted to know, if this a known bug in this release.

          In your production environment, it would be safer to run only LTS releases of Jenkins.

          Between 2.316 and 2.318, Remoting was upgraded to address JENKINS-61212 and JENKINS-64831. That might be related.

          Anyway, the log files of the agents may indicate what the problem is.

          We've received other reports that 2.318 was unable to connect Windows agents, but the submitter did not provide enough information so that others could duplicate the problem. Can you share more details that describe the issue in enough detail so that others can duplicate your configuration?

          • Where is the controller running (operating system, Java version)?
          • Where is the agent running (operating system, Java version)?
          • How is the agent launched (batch file, web start, some other method)?
          • What plugins are installed on the controller (precise versions)?
          • Are there any special details about network configuration that might cause you to see this issue but prevent others from seeing it?
          • Are there other details that might make your Jenkins installation different from other Jenkins installations?
