I am trying to use a variable to specify a service name when I am stopping and starting windows service. The replacement looks like it is working but the process is failing with the follow error details. Should variables be able to be used?

SSL timeouts trying to pull a package from nuget.org

1
replies

We are having trouble trying to add a package to our proget feed. We are trying to pull various packages from nuget.org. The majority of times we get an SSL error but occasionally it works (same parameters).

Unchecking the Download dependencies check box seems to help a little but doesnt fix the issue.

Error message is:

Server Error in '/' Application.

the request was aborted: Could not create SSL/TLS secure channel.

I dont have the exception handy but I think the error was a timeout.

ProGet service manual installation - using IIS for website

1
replies

The ProGet manual service installation instructions say the following:

  • Install the service. To do this, run ProGet.Service.exe and display help to discover the arguments for the "install" option. Administrator elevation is required to install the service and reserve URLs for self-hosted installations. If you do not reserve a URL the integrated web server will not be enabled.

I am trying to use IIS to host the website component, so as I understand it, I don't need a URL reserved. However, the installer simply reports the following:

  • URL must be specified.

What command line would be used to register the service without a URL reservation?

Unable to restore package jQuery.Cookie.1.4.0

1
replies

When we try to restore that specific package from ProGet server, it fails to obtain it.

For all other packages It works fine, it's just with that one that we've got a problem.

Our ProGet feed is configured to cache packages from connectors, and we have only one connector to "https://www.nuget.org/api/v2/". When browsing the feed with the web interface we can find the package. But when we ask to visual studio to restore packages from the API it fails on that specific package.

Under fiddler we can see that the request "http://srv-rd-packages.talentsoft.com/nuget/Talentsoft/Packages(Id='jQuery.Cookie',Version='1.4.0')" returns an empty response : <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?><feed xml:base="http://srv-rd-packages.talentsoft.com/nuget/Talentsoft/" xmlns:d="http://schemas.microsoft.com/ado/2007/08/dataservices" xmlns:m="http://schemas.microsoft.com/ado/2007/08/dataservices/metadata" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2005/Atom">Packageshttp://srv-rd-packages.talentsoft.com/nuget/Talentsoft/Packages2014-10-22T10:04:31Z

We also observed that this package had never be added to the cache folder of the feed.

We try to manually add the package to the cache folder but it didn't change anything.

Finally we pull the package to ProGet feed, and now it works.

Anybody can reproduce that ? As we have no problem to restore that package when we target "https://www.nuget.org/api/v2/" from visual studio, I can't blame the package. I can only imagine that its structure contains something that makes the ProGet API fails.

Deploy works fine but never completes!

Hi,

I made a really simple deploy that just gets a build artifact from team city. It get this fine and then the deploy never completes it just sits on 'Finalization complete.' in the log?

This is really strange. I have made the deploy as simple as possible to try and isolate the error. I am using the latest release 4.4.6 (Build 7). Here is the log:

Does anyone have an example of using the Buildmaster Release and Build number in a TFS Build process to update the assembly info?

Proget Don't retry after timeout on a connector

3
replies

We have configured multiple feeds on ProGet (2 locals and one distant) and one named "all" that simply group the 3 others in one.

We have observed multiple times that when a ProGet feed timeout on one of it's connectors, it won't retry any more to get results from that connector.

The first time it was due to an external network problem, causing our distant feed to be unavailable and our "all" feed being incomplete. A second time it was due to an internal server maintenance that cause cause our locals feeds to not respond and once again our "all" feed was incomplete

Each time the solution was to change the connector configuration with fake changes to reboot the connector, or to reboot the ProGet IIS pool.

Having a timeout is not a real problem, especially when a real network problem has been observed. But network problems could be "common" things, and I don't want to have to reboot ProGet each time it timeout for any reason...

Can I expect a real solution, or should I consider to recycle ProGet every hour to force itto re-evaluate connectors connectivity ?

Feed caching

3
replies

Hi guy,


Feed Caching When a feed is configured to cache packages from its connectors, then any time a remote package is requested from ProGet, it will automatically be stored as a local package.


if caching is active an the stored the files local in the feed why we get an error 404 if the remote feed in the connector is down?

Can you change proget that he looks first in the _cache folder or save the in the feed folder not in the _cache folder.

Do not overwrite build artifacts

2
replies

We have a need to avoid recreating build artifacts on re-executions if they already exist. I have tried a few ideas, but I have run into issues and questions with each route.

  1. Use a predicate to just skip the "create artifact" peace on re-execution. No question here, it just doesn't quite meet the requirements. If a build fails before the artifact is created, re-execution should create it.
  2. Use a variable to track whether an artifact is created. I tried a build-level variable with a default value of "false", but it seems that the variable gets set back to the default value on every execution. If I don't set a default value it works, but I'm forced to type "false" into a text box when I create the build. Is this intended behavior or a bug?
  3. Create a custom predicate to check whether a build artifact exists. This seems like the most promising option so far, but I don't see an obvious way to check artifacts through the IActionExecutionContext that's passed in to the Evaluate method. Is there any way to get the list of build artifacts from a custom predicate?

Thanks,

Tim

Loading Symbols from Symbol Feed Results in 404

2
replies

I found ProGet while looking to set up a symbol server for our internal packages and the product looks like exactly what we're looking for. While testing the installation, however, I've run into an issue I just can't resolve on my own. Specifically, requests to load the symbols within a Visual Studio 2013 debug session are returning a 404 error (file not found). Here's some background on our setup:

Two feeds defined, "Default" serves the "real" packages and "Symbols" serves the symbols packages.

Package downloads work fine through the web interface and NuGet Package Manager for both feeds.

The "Symbols" feed shows that symbols are included and clicking on the "Download package with symbols" link works (URL is http://cpunuget/api/v2/package/Symbols/CPU.CISAPI/1.1.27.0?includeSymbols=y) and the downloaded package includes both the .pdb and the source files.

I've configured my Visual Studio settings to point the Options->Debugging->Symbols to the URL http://cpunuget/symbols/Symbols

When running a debug session on a console application that references the package, I'm unable to step into the package source code. I installed Fiddler to see what traffic was occurring and when I force Visual Studio to load the symbol information through the Modules window, the URL requested is http://cpunuget/symbols/Symbols/CPU.CISAPI.pdb/5E358192FAF24731B3E4D1AA33E299C61/CPU.CISAPI.pdb but a 404 is returned, so Visual Studio reports that the symbols can't be found.

Any ideas?

Local Agent Server Incorrect After Installation

3
replies

I did a fresh install of Buildmaster on an application server (Server A) with the database hosted on a remote server (Server B). After install, when I view my servers, Server B is the only one listed and it is listed as being a "Local" agent. I would have expected Server A to be the "Local" agent since that is where Buildmaster application resides. I believe I need Server A to be a "Local" agent because I am planning on a good bit of functionality, like file copies, to originate from Server A. How do I get Server A to be a "Local" agent instead of Server B?

Service could not be stopped/started

3
replies

Hello,

I have set up a service deployment to one of our servers.

On the Stop Service dialog, after selecting the servers, it shows all my services in dropdownlist based on the search. That means BuildMaster could access the services on that specific server.

When running the deployment plan, it throws an error when trying to stop the service:

2: Stop NoteService Service
Source and target directory are the same; splitting...
AgentBasedAction initialization complete:
  Temp Directory: C:\BuildMaster\_AGTTMP\_A14\_S132\TMP

I am facing the same problem when starting the service.
