master-osmo-gsm-manuals job fails to build
For some strange reason, the job https://jenkins.osmocom.org/jenkins/view/master/job/master-osmo-gsm-manuals/ failed to build from June 3rd onwards.
The failure is:
java.io.IOException: [ssh-agent] Could not find specified credentials
But what's even more odd than this: It wants to start the job on a deprecated debian8 slave:
Building remotely on @build2-deb8build-ansible@ (linux_amd64_debian8) in workspace /home/osmocom-build/jenkins/workspace/master-osmo-gsm-manuals
Where the job configuration clearly states it should be built on an "osmocom-master-debian9" label. The
build2-deb8build-ansible node clearly doesn't have that label ?!? I'm a bit lost here.

for matrix builds jenkins often start the coordinating build on a completely unrelated build slave. That got me completely confused more than once, e.g. some gerrit verification builds being started on the osmo-gsm-tester APU. But it's only the orchestrator of the individual matrix builds which then again adhere to the slave selection. Since our jjb have this slave-axis thing, all of our builds are like this, IIUC.

lynxis well, it's nice to know that those jobs might start on other slaves. the problem persists though, and we're not building osmo-gsm-manuals for 25 days it seems. This means that users will received outdated manuals, and it should be investigated rather urgently.

I changed the upload url to point to the old server, but that doesn't fix the issue reported here.
I did have some luck setting the "Restrict where this project can be run" option to "osmocom-master-debian9". For matrix builds this restricts also where the parent build can be run.
