At a minimum these need to be run individually by hand or run in GUI regression system.  Additionally, they must be run on a system that has no other installations of GMAT.  Past experience has shown that missing files, and configuraiton issues are not caught by running on machines used for development.

SEE NOTES IN SECTION BELOW

Fixed "latest download" to point to new exe.SPH See instructions here: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/6777327/how-to-manually-set-the-default-download-file-in-a-sourceforge-project
Post internal & public release files to MESA networkJJKPSPH 2014-05-22: posted internal files only; public files are in build\VS2010_build\R2015a(tick) 

Branch and tag repositories

DJC (tick)At least tag the test system; consider branching also if the burden on the repo is low.  (In SVN, tagging makes a branch, so tagging already creates a branch.)
Make SourceForge repository backupJJKPSPH 

Follow SourceForge's instructions.

Perform the backup on the Linode server and download the resultant .zip file, since the local network blocks rsync.

...

  1. Log into gs580w-gmat-t4 as "gsfc580gmattest". The credentials are on the network drive, in the Infrastructure folder.
  2. [RC1 only] Start Task Scheduler and disable the "Run Script Test" task. You'll need to run the RC tests manually.
  3. Uninstall all previous versions of GMAT.
  4. Install the version being tested.
    1. Check "Enable MATLAB interface".
    2. Leave "Associate file types" unchecked.
  5. Update the test system repo (located at C:\Users\gsfc580gmattest\Documents\GmatTest)
  6. In MATLAB (64-bit):
    1. Run:
      >> cd C:\Users\gsfc580gmattest\Documents\GmatTest\bin
    2. Run (replace # with RC number and <config> with "internal" or "public"):
      >> diary('..\log\R2015a-rc#-<config>.log')
    3. Run (this command copies application files such as SPICE kernels needed for regression tests into the new installation of GMAT):
      >> preparegmat('C:\Path\To\GMAT')
    4. In C:\Users\testuser\Documents\GmatTest\bin, copy the appropriate template (autorundef.R2015aInternal.template.m or autorundef.R2015aPublic.template.m) to a new name (such as autorundef.R2015aRc1Internal.m) and fill in the values:
      1. RunDef.Build: "R2015a-rc#-<config>"
      2. RunDef.GmatExe: path to installed GMAT.exe
      3. RunDef.RegressionBuild: last build date if testing RC1 (look in GmatTest\output for latest folder, such as 2013-07-31), otherwise, "R2015a-rc#-<config>"
    5. Run:
      >> gmattest <name of rundef.m> (e.g. autorundef.R2015aRc1Internal.m) 
    6. Wait until run completes (usually 8+ hours)
    7. Run:
      >> diary('off')
  7. In a Windows cmd window, post results to network using robocopy:
    >robocopy "C:\Users\gsfc580gmattest\Documents\GmatTest\output\R2015a-rc#-<config>" "\\mesa-file\595\GMAT\TestResults\win7\R2015a-rc#-<config>" /E /MT /LOG:%TEMP%\robocopy.txt

Updating SourceForge HTML docs page

The Sourceforge page for logging in is here:  https://sourceforge.net/p/forge/documentation/SFTP/

I (SPH) used Filezilla and this was pretty straightforward once succesfully logging in:

Hostname is frs.sourceforge.net

UserName: "YOURSOURCEFORGEUSERNAME,gmat"

Password is: YOURSOURCEFORGEPASSWORD

File Updating

  1. Add a new folder for the release under the gmat\htdocs\docs folder
  2. Update contents of the new release folder with files from new release
  3. Update the gmat\htdocs\docs\index.html to include new folder and to point to the new latest folder.
