I added a new virtualbox runner to my gitlab self hosted solution and I’m getting this warning on it:
Runner has never contacted this instance
and it nevers runs any jobs
The problem was solved after running the
gitlab-runner verify command.
~ ➤ gitlab-runner -h # shows the help and other commands of gitlab-runner NAME: gitlab-runner - a GitLab Runner USAGE: gitlab-runner [global options] command [command options] [arguments...] VERSION: 13.11.0 (7f7a4bb0) AUTHOR: GitLab Inc. <firstname.lastname@example.org> COMMANDS: exec execute a build locally list List all configured runners run run multi runner service register register a new runner install install service uninstall uninstall service start start service stop stop service restart restart service status get status of a service run-single start single runner unregister unregister specific runner verify verify all registered runners artifacts-downloader download and extract build artifacts (internal) artifacts-uploader create and upload build artifacts (internal) cache-archiver create and upload cache artifacts (internal) cache-extractor download and extract cache artifacts (internal) cache-init changed permissions for cache paths (internal) health-check check health for a specific address read-logs reads job logs from a file, used by kubernetes executor (internal) help, h Shows a list of commands or help for one command GLOBAL OPTIONS: --cpuprofile value write cpu profile to file [$CPU_PROFILE] --debug debug mode [$DEBUG] --log-format value Choose log format (options: runner, text, json) [$LOG_FORMAT] --log-level value, -l value Log level (options: debug, info, warn, error, fatal, panic) [$LOG_LEVEL] --help, -h show help --version, -v print the version
Now it works fine:
Thanks @WytrzymałyWiktor for his comment on this post. I didn’t find anything helpful other than his comment.
P.S After performing the above steps, you may need to run
gitlab-runner start in order to resolve your problem!
