Development for a new pipeline that builds RHEL8 images on cluster instead of the existing server.
The build time on the existing RHEL8 builder pipeline is usually 30-40min. I expect the new pipeline to execute everything in 10-15 min (maybe a bit more), similar to the Ubuntu builder pipeline. In other words, this work will speed up the RAN-Container-Parent by 15min.
The physim python code has been updated to expect the physim images directly on the image registry.
Tasks to be done:
Add to Gitlab Jenkinsfile: https://jenkins-oai.eurecom.fr/view/RAN/job/RAN-RHEL8-Cluster-Image-Builder/
Need to check whether it is faster to build the target images (gNB, eNB, ...) serially and not in parallel
it seems the Pipeline does not pick up the XML file @defosseu could you please check? -> I used the wrong branch/need to have the pipeline clone ci-build-cluster branch into Jenkins workspace
