When viewing the dynamic view of release notes (http://bmserver/administration/updates), the release notes are not working anymore. It correctly produces the number of changes for the release delta (for example, if there are two changes between 4.1.6 and 4.1.7, there are two bullet points, but no text describing the items--it only has blank bullet points.

We are using BuildMaster as a deployment tool, that picks up builds from a Team Foundation Server dropfolder. At the moment, we are picking up the latest green build, but I want to be able to support a pick and choose scenario as well, since we are deploying to multiple environments and need to be able to pinpoint certain builds to use for deployment to certain environments. I believe that I can crate a variable and pick build by freeform text, but that requires me to go to the TFS environment to find the build to use. When I install a new application in BuildMaster, buildmaster is able to provide a list of all available TFS build definitions, and when I get the latest build in my "Create Artifact from TFS Build Output" action, there must be some interaction going on with the TFS server, that lists all builds and figures the latest green one. So could there be a variable to use in order to get a dropdown list of builds for the specific build definition from TFS?

We're working in C#, in Visual Studio. We have a fair amount of code in shared DLLs, that we use in a number of projects. When we reference a shared DLL, we do it in one of two ways - we either put a copy of the correctly-versioned DLL in a known place, and add a reference to it in our app's project file, or we put the entire project source tree in a known place and add a project reference to our app's project file. (Depending, of course, on how tightly-bound the DLL's release schedule is to the app's release schedule. If the DLL is essentially fixed, we simply put a copy of it in ~/DLLS, if it's being developed simultaneously with the app, we check out it's entire source tree into ~/externs/dllproject.)

I'm trying to replicate the latter pattern, using a simple test app and test DLL, in BuildMaster. I added the DLL project as a dependency to the app project, and created a deployment plan for the project that included "Get Latest", and "Build MSBuild Project". Then I created a new build. The checkout succeeded, and the build failed. Which doesn't surprise me, because the dependent project wasn't checked out. What did surprise me was that there was no effort made to check out the dependent project, in the logs. BuildMaster is not automatically building the dependencies.

So I've been looking for any action that might be involved in building the deployables, but I've not been able to find one.

How is this normally done?

Is there an example of creating a simple deployment plan for msbuild? I'm sure the problems I'm having have simple answers...

I have a C# solution and project checked into subversion. I created a project in BuildMaster with an empty deployment plan, and started from scratch.

I have a "Get Latest" action that is successfully checking out the project from SVN.

I have a "Build MSBuild Project" action that is successfully compiling the project.

I have a "Create Build Artifact" action that is successfully creating a zipfile of the entire project directory.

I have a "Deploy Build Artifact" action that successfully unzipping the project to my specified destination directory.

My problem? I don't want to deploy the entire build directory, I only want to deploy the single DLL.

When are you planning on releasing an update with the ability to control how many versions of a package are kept in a feed? It would be nice if there was a way to add this ourselves via your API if you are not planning to add this in the very near future. Please advise.

I'm trying out BuildMaster. I've done the "Accounts" walkthrough, without a problem. Now I'm trying to build one of our .NET apps, pulled from our SVN server.

I click on "Create New Application", select ".NET Application", enter a name, and click "Next".

In "step 2 of 7", I choose our Source Control Provider (a local instance of Collab.net's svnedge), and in "Path of solution or project" I browse to the trunk folder of the project, and click "Next".

I get an error:

svn: E155007: 'C:\Windows\Temp\tmpE533.tmp' exists and is not a directory

Three questions:

  1. What does this error mean?
  2. How does BuildMaster handle branches, tags, and trunk, when working with SVN? Once I've configured an app from SVN, I'll want to be able to tell BuildMaster to build different branches and tags of it, but it's not clear to me how BuildMaster will determine the appropriate URL for the different branches. There has to be some logic that maps branches into URLs, but I don't see where that is documented.
  3. How do I configure BuildMaster to not use c:\Windows\Temp as its location for temp files?

Publishing a package containing source and symbols, packaged using the Nuget -symbols command, does provide symbols but not source stepping.

Visual Studio will only step into local code.

It is my understanding that Proget strips a Symbols package for the PDB and Source files, and i assume that it then updates the PDB sourcefile paths to reflect the source server setup.

If this is the case it does not work.

It that is not the expected behavior of Proget, then how do i manipulate the PDB to reflect the Proget source server, so the Source code is available for stepping.

nb. Proget claims that source and symbols are available for the package.

Hi.

We started using ProGet as our internal package server so we could share some custom packages with multiple teams. Since ProGet supports connectors behind a feed, we created one connector to the NuGet official repository in order to take advantage of its caching capabilities.

Things were going fine until we decided to ditch the official NuGet feed in Visual Studio and use only our ProGet-based one. After disabling the official feed NuGet failed to resolve any remote dependencies our custom packages might have. That seemed odd because we could install any remote package directly without any issues using the very same feed.

We did some debugging and found out that NuGet behaves differently when the official feed is enabled. Here's the trace when only our internal feed is available:

GET http://server/nuget/Default/Packages()?$filter=tolower(Id)%20eq%20'awssdk'&$orderby=Id
GET http://server/nuget/Default/Packages()?$filter=tolower(Id)%20eq%20'awssdk'&$orderby=Id

And here's the trace generated when both NuGet and our feed are enabled:

GET http://server/nuget/Default/Packages()?$filter=tolower(Id)%20eq%20'awssdk'&$orderby=Id
GET http://server/nuget/Default/Packages()?$filter=tolower(Id)%20eq%20'awssdk'&$orderby=Id
GET https://www.nuget.org/api/v2/FindPackagesById()?id='AWSSDK'
GET https://www.nuget.org/api/v2/FindPackagesById?id='AWSSDK'&$skiptoken='AWSSDK','1.4.8.1'
GET https://www.nuget.org/api/v2/FindPackagesById?id='AWSSDK'&$skiptoken='AWSSDK','1.5.30.1'
GET https://www.nuget.org/api/v2/FindPackagesById?id='AWSSDK'&$skiptoken='AWSSDK','2.0.1.0'

Is that a bug in ProGet, in NuGet or are we missing some configuration?

Thanks in advance.

Kind regards.

We have many servers in our cloud environment and have decided to enable rolling deployments to ensure the least amount of downtime for our users. What is the best process for deploying to large numbers of servers where one of more of them may not be powered up when the deployment runs?

I see that you can set resume on failure and also log errors are warnings, but it seems like buildmaster takes a long time get past the operations if the servers are not active.

Also, we tried using server groups, but even with resume on next turned on, if one of the servers in the group was not active, the process failed.

Any ideas?

Does anyone have any case studies or examples of SSRS Report Project deployments through BuildMaster? Most of our Report Projects are stored in TFS and it seems like this should be fairly easily, but we'd like to package them together with the other releases as they're usually enhanced and developed alongside and during other development work.

A certain package always fails downloading, while others succeed.
The download fails either when using the "Download" button or when using nuget from within visual studio by clicking "restore packages".

The error:

Request handler not found (404)

An unexpected error has occured while processing your request.

Error Details:

/api/v2/package/Default/EntireOne.Shared.Rules/2.0.11.0 does not map to any handlers. The URL may have been entered incorrectly or linked to from an old reference.

I've made sure the app pool is running in classic mode after seeing this post: http://inedo.com/support/questions/1208, but the error happens anyway.

I have a project that consists of various Database Change Scripts for testing (SQL Server provider). I have purposefully set up a script that alters a table that doesn't exist (should fail/produce an error message). However, when I run this script through Build Master for a deployment to an environment it produces a success and no issue is raised.

Can you let me know if there is any configuration that can be set to allow SQL Scripts that have errors to be shown as errors instead of successful? It seems like as long as script can be sent to remote agent it is considered successful.
