TCP ssh wait failed on vagrant-kitchen


#1

I am using vagrant for test-kitchen on windows environment and it isn’t working.

Vagrant works fine on its own, vagrant init bento/centos-7.3, vagrant up and ssh 127.0.0.1 -p 2222 all work fine.

It is not an issue of Bios/enabling virtualization of 64bit because the above works.

Versions:
Vagrant 2.0.0
.\vboxmanage -v
5.1.26r117224

Chef Development Kit Version: 2.0.28
chef-client version: 13.2.20
delivery version: master (17c1b0fed9be4c70f69091a6d21a4cbf0df60a23)
berks version: 6.2.0
kitchen version: 1.16.0
inspec version: 1.31.1

kitchen destroy has been used each time before creating.
The test kitchen each time gets stuck on "Waiting for SSH Service on 127.0.0.0.1:2222"
Which is Odd because when it is waiting, I issued an ssh to this port and it succeeded.

ssh 127.0.0.1 -p2222

#2

There was a pretty nasty bug specifically on Windows with kitchen-vagrant 1.2.0 and you’ll want a newer DK, 2.2+ to get the fix. If it’s still occurring after an upgrade we’d also need to check the version of the bento box you’re using vagrant box list.

Cheers,

It is still happening. Retrial attempt below. I have upgraded new chefDK 2.3.1

Chef Development Kit Version: 2.3.1
chef-client version: 13.4.19
delivery version: master (73ebb72a6c42b3d2ff5370c476be800fee7e5427)
berks version: 6.3.1
kitchen version: 1.17.0
inspec version: 1.36.1

These are the boxes. I am primarily using Centos-7.3 and ubuntu-14.04
These are advised in the learn chef rally.

bento/centos-7.3 (virtualbox, 201708.22.0)
bento/ubuntu-14.04 (virtualbox, 201708.22.0)

#4

SSH succeeds to the box, which kitchen is timing out on and retrying.

#5

You’ll definitely want to update to ChefDK 2.3.4 - there was an upstream change in net-ssh that produces those warnings and that has been resolved.


#6

upgraded to chefDK 2.3.4, the paranoid warnings are gone but the ssh timeout errors still remain.
what else to try?


#8

I have found a workaround after noticing that only the private key ssh authentication doesn’t work with test kitchen. I also tested by providing the whole path of private_key as parameter ssh_key in the yml file.
Later I removed it and I tested and provided username, port and password and the test instance came up with no errors. So we can safely conclude that username authentication is working fine but ssh authentication is not.

transport:
username: vagrant
port: 2222
password: vagrant
