Hi all. This is on a fresh install of Server 10.6 with all updates to 10.6.2, repaired permissions, rebooted, etc. I enabled Podcast Producer using its Setup Assistant. Created a test user, and Podcast Capture worked fine on uploading to their podcast, using the default Single Source with small movies. Uploaded 4 episodes. Then, all of a sudden, it stopped working, and I get this

=============================================================
Thu Dec 10 11:34:48 -0500 2009 -- Xgrid Job: 14 is Running
Thu Dec 10 11:34:53 -0500 2009 -- Xgrid Job: 14 is Failed

This is using both the Podcast Capture app or the web based Capture app, on the server or from other computers. In the error log I get this:
/System/Library/Frameworks/Ruby.framework/Versions/1.8/usr/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gem s/mongrel-1.1.5/bin/../lib/mongrel.rb:285:in `run': Ruby threads cannot be used in RubyCocoa without patches to the Ruby interpreter

Is this relevant? Already erased drive and reinstalled everything twice, on this Mac Pro, 2.8 GHz Quad Core Xenon.
Where to look and what to fix? Appreciate any feedback.

    I get the exact same error...

    /System/Library/Frameworks/Ruby.framework/Versions/1.8/usr/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gem s/mongrel-1.1.5/bin/../lib/mongrel.rb:285:in `run': Ruby threads cannot be used in RubyCocoa without patches to the Ruby interpreter

    Everything seems to work from the client but when the job goes to the Podcast Producer it never shows up.

    I also get this error.

    Anyone know how to get around it?

    This message:

    comes from the RubyCocoa library that is being used by Podcast Producer, this is only a warning and has nothing to do with the described problems

    Are there any logs in /Library/Logs/pcastserverd/DiagnosticReports/ ?

    I get the same thing, but what about this line:

    +Thu Dec 10 12:14:38 -0500 2009 -- Unable to resolve admin user: admin+

    Does that mean it cannot authenticate somehow, so it won't run the job?

    In what log do you see that? Also, are there any logs in /Library/Logs/pcastserverd/DiagnosticReports/ ?

    I had the same issue. For me, the solution was to enable Kerberos authentication for the Xgrid controller & agent authentication settings (earlier I had been testing a separate Xgrid configuration issue with authentication="none" and forgot to set it back). Apparently, Podcast Producer requires kerberos authentication to work with Xgrid.

    When I set my Podcast Producer user/password it errors out, I was using "None" for authentication but I'm wondering if it has something to do with my Open Directory setup.

    Do I have to add a Kerberos Record or Kerberize the database? I'm a newby at the OD stuff and am not sure how to go about that,

    thanks!

    we had the same issue being discussed here. We had to take our production server offline, wipe clean and reinstall. The big things we had to ensure took place were Forward and reverse DNS were configured, and that Kerberos was configured correctly. Here is a partial response from apples support regarding this issue.

    ..."Please be sure that your local DNS service is configured so that the Server Setup Assistant can establish the proper hostname for the system after the network config screen. The system will automatically do a reverse lookup based on the DNS settings and pull the corresponding DNS name associated with the configured static IP address. If the system does not automatically fill the proper DNS and computer name after the network config screen, stop and correct the DNS records. "Go Back" in the Server Setup Assistant to the network settings and then continue forward again to force the Server Setup Assistant to re-query the DNS with a reverse look-up and pull the correct names. These steps are the most important part of the configuration process because these settings directly affect Kerberos (which is a requirement for Podcast Producer and related services)"...

    Hope this helps! Good luck!
