Hello,

We have about 50 Applications on our build-master. These applications have a nummber of build executions daily and thus create a large number of artifacts. We would like to know if there is way we can configure build master to keep a certain number of artifacts or to delete the articafts for rejected builds?

Thanks

As a short term fix for the database size limitations in SQLExpress, we need to purge old records from the database.

We have already purged the log records and BuildOutputs, BuildTestResults, EventOccurenceDetails and EventOccurences.

However the BuildExecution_PlanActionVariableValues table is using approx 3.3GB of space and we do not need to keep this data for builds older than say 3 weeks.

Can you please provide some SQL which will delete old records from this table and any other linked tables.

I cannot upload a Nuget Package to my Nuget feed. When I click "Add Package", I select the packae I want to upload then it acts like it uploads the package, but the package does not show up in my feed. I also tried uploading a package from nuget and it does the same thing, act like it uploaded but doesn't display my package.

  1. How can I get the FTP action to work in binary mode? I never want isolated \n (newline) characters translated into \r\n (return, newline) characters.

  2. How can I disable this action? The [show all options] link does nothing.

Not sure where to post this but I was wondering if you had a user tracking feature on your backlog.
What I am looking for is the ability to track what user downloads what packages on a per feed basis. If this could be logged into a table in the database this would be all that I need to get the data. I need this for regulatory purposes and in order to make Proget my Enterprise solution for package management. If this is on your backlog can you tell me when it might be coming out.

Hi,

We have been suffering intermittent failures when trying to publish packages from our build server to our ProGet package server for several months now. We are seeing the following error in the Jenkins build logs:

Failed to process request. 'There was an error processing the request: The process cannot access the file 'C:\ProgramData\ProGet\Packages\Default\Package.1.1.0-alpha.nupkg' because it is being used by another process.'. EXEC : The remote server returned an error : (500) Internal Server Error.

There doesn't seem to be much consistency as to when this error occurs. Also, we have a ScratchPad and Default feed. Each build step publishes to our ScratchPad feed once it completes and then once all stages have build successfully there is a complete publish of all newly built packages to the Default feed. We have seen examples of failures publishing to both feeds.

We have monitored the C:\ProgramData\ProGet\Packages directory with Sysinternals Process Monitor and noticed that when the publish failed there was a SHARING VIOLATION when ProGet.Service.exe tried to create the newly built package on the package server. It seems the sharing violation was due to the fact that ProGet.Service.exe had started reading the package just before it tried to publish the latest version, so ProGet.Services.exe had locked the file.

There were no other processes observed (such as virus scanners) which had a handle on the file in question that might have caused the SHARING VIOLATION, hence it feels like there is perhaps an issue with ProGet blocking itself.

If it helps you diagnose the problem we can provide an export of the Process Monitor output at the time of the failure.

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.
