Deployment plans can be exported/imported as XML which is great.

Is there a way to export/import other settings like application variables/settings, workflows and triggers ?.

We need this as we are stuck with using SQLExpress for now due to financial constraints, and our database is approx 9GB which is nearly at the limit of SQLExpress.

Our thought is to export all the application settings, then reinstall Buildmaster with a blank database and import the settings. Of course we will loose the deployment history (but can review it from a database backup if needed).

If we set the working directory of a task to ~\bin the bni directory is not being automatically created hence we get the following exception when the task runs. The workaround is to create the bin directory manually.

Should Buildmaster create the bin directory manually ?

Hi,

Is there a way we can hide the proget deploy features as we won't be using them and are worried they could cause confusion among our users who should be using a different deployment tool.

Thanks,

Hi

When I am using NuGet Package Explorer with ProGet, it tries to query previous versions of packages by using the http://myfeed/FindPackagesById() data service.

This service is part of the standard NuGet.Server package that can be hosted in an ASP.NET project, and exists on the NuGet Gallery (https://www.nuget.org/packages/NuGet.Server).

However, this data service is not available for the ProGet feed url. Can it be added?

Thanks
Riko

Hi guy,
we had some timeouts and a very very slow search result over nuget.exe with Proget.

In the Database we added an Index to the table "dbo.Packages" Index key columns ae ("Feed_Id", "Package_id", "Version_Text")

For the moment it works pls check this and the View "Packages_Extended" it is very slow

Is it possible to move from SQLExpress to MySQL view import/export of the database or do we need to reinstall Buildmaster and create the Buildmaster applications from scratch ?

Our Buildmaster database is over 6GBytes in size and Buildmaster can no longer perform deployments as it always gets a timeout. The SQLExpress process consumes an entire CPU as soon as you start a deployment.

We have restarted the Buildmaster and SQLExpress services and rebooted the machine but no improvement.

I suspect the problem is to do with the database size - much of the data is for deployments we do not want to keep history for.

How can we deleted the history from the database ?

I wish to change a value in my web.config i.e. DatabaseConnectionString per deployment environment.

Currently I have different variables that I reference in each deployment to handle this i.e. TestConnectionString, LiveConnectionString. These are then referenced in a action group with the one for Live effectively a copy of Test but just with the variable name changed.

Is there a way by which I can have just ConnectionString and set that variable on an environment by environment deploy thereby just copying an action group but not needing to change it's contents?

I'm using the TFS 2012 extension, and the "Append Issue Description" action doesn't seem to work with any TFS work item type (user stories, bugs, etc.) of any status (New, Active, Resolved, Closed, etc.). We are using TFS 2013 on-premise. When I try to append some text to an issue during the deployment, I get this:

I have a ProGet Feed from which all developers download the NuGet packages. Packages from the official NuGet Gallery have to be added to this feed. For this, we use "Pull from another Repository". If we check "Download Dependencies", then only the selected package is added to the feed.
Is this a known bug? Is it maybe already fixed in other versions?

We have been getting SMTP timeouts recently in our "Send Email" steps for some reason. I know you probably can't help us with the root cause of those timeouts, but I have a couple questions about how to deal with them cleanly.

Here is the exception we get:


Initializing action...
    Initialization complete. Executing...
    Preparing Email Message
    An unhandled exception occurred while executing this action: System.Net.Mail.SmtpException: The operation has timed out.
       at System.Net.Mail.SmtpClient.Send(MailMessage message)
       at Inedo.BuildMaster.Extensibility.Actions.General.SendEmailAction.Execute()
       at Inedo.BuildMaster.Extensibility.Actions.ActionBase.ExecuteInternal(IActionExecutionContext context, ExtensionConfigurerBase extensionConfigurer, Boolean resumeNextOnError, Boolean logErrorsAsWarnings)

Deployments are failing on the Send Email step most of the time (but not always). However, the emails are still being sent -- the failure reported by BuildMaster is not really correct. So that's one area where I need to understand what is really happening -- the email is, in fact, being sent. It's just that BuildMaster thinks there is a timeout and then it fails the step. What is going on there?

To handle this, I thought I would go to the advanced options of the Send Email step and set the Timeout to 30 seconds, thinking it would then wait 30 seconds before "failing". This didn't seem to have any effect. It would still "fail" after like 15 seconds. Does that Timeout value not work the way I expect?

I also tried setting the Retry Count to 3, thinking that it would at least take 3 "timeouts" to cause the step to fail. It merely resulted in two failures and then on the third attempt, a success. Everyone got three emails, though.

Any advice on how to handle this? We are using Exchange.

We have just upgraded to 4.2.3 and get the following exception from our custom extension which has been upgraded to use the latest 4.2 SDK.

An unhandled exception occurred while executing this action: System.MissingMethodException: Method not found: 'Inedo.BuildMaster.Data.StoredProcedures.Variables_CreateOrUpdateVariableDefinition Inedo.BuildMaster.Data.StoredProcs.Variables_CreateOrUpdateVariableDefinition(System.String, System.Nullable1<Int32>, System.Nullable1<Int32>, System.Nullable1<Int32>, System.Nullable1<Int32>, System.Nullable1<Int32>, System.String, System.String, System.Nullable1<Int32>, System.String)'.

The SDK shows a different function signature (extra String on the end):
Variables_CreateOrUpdateVariableDefinition(System.String, System.Nullable1<Int32>, System.Nullable1<Int32>, System.Nullable1<Int32>, System.Nullable1<Int32>, System.Nullable1<Int32>, System.String, System.String, System.Nullable1<Int32>, System.String, System.String)

How can we fix this ?

We've installed a copy of your NuGet server to evaluate it for our internal development teams.

I installed a copy on our server and managed to lock myself out when trying to enable the LDAP (Active Directory) integration.

I uninstalled the ProGet server and reinstalled but the instance is still locked.

How do I reset the server to default the user name and password and non-LDAP authentication?

System:
Windows Server 2003, Enterprise Edition, Service Pack 2

Issue:
If the server is shutdown for maintenance or because of other issue and is restarted, the BuildMaster service does not restart. It attempts to restart but fails which then chains to the BuildMaster Web server failing to start. Both services are set to "Startup Type: Automatic". The Application Event Log provides the error details below.

I attempted to add an exception handler to the Web.config file but was unsuccessful in getting it to log on initial start up.

Is it possible to get BuildMaster to consistently start on system start up? If so, what am I missing?

I am working on a plan to deploy ProGet, and part of that is how to back it up. Looking at the database, it doesn't appear that it stores binaries in the database, so what else do you need to back up in order to rebuild/restore a ProGet installation?
