I'm running into an interesting issue. We host all our source in Mercurial. I initially setup a hook on our main repository to post to BuildMaster, but that created an infinite build when we started trying to label things. So, I've tried setting up a monitoring schedule, but I'm getting the following exceptions.

Unhandled Exception: System.FormatException: Input string was not in a correct format.

I have a poll setup to check the SVN server at regular intervals in order to initiate automatic builds.

Unfortunately a side effect of the way the Hyper-V hosts are backed up is that the server temporarily loses network connection at about 1 in the morning.

As a result buildmaster logs are regularly filled up with the messages at the bottom of this post.

Could a configuration option be added into the plugin to allow these messages to be muted, or configured to mute unless the problem persists for longer than x minutes?

I am creating an artifact. During the phase of transferring the file to the artifact libary, it seem to take a very long time (10 minutes to copy from build machine to network drive)

When i try and copy the artifact to and from the build machine and network drive manually it seems to copy in about 90 seconds.

The artficat is about 87 MB.

Is this a know issue with build masters deploy artifact action?

When trying to connect to an issue tracker (Bugzilla) from BM (v3.2.4) I get the following error message:
An error occurred while loading this provider: '--' is an unexpected token. The expected token is '>'. Line 31, position 3.
The Bugzilla extension (v3.0.6.0) is installed and current.

We currently use "cliconfg.exe" to maintain our SQL server aliases on each environment.

Thus our connection string can be uniform across environments, e.g. server=TESTDBSERVER;database=Test;uid=sa;pwd=!@#$%A1

When setting up connection strings with BuildMaster though, the connection string is tightly coupled with an environment. Thus I am forced to create a provider for every environment.

Is there a way to decouple this?

P.S. We are only evaluating BuildMaster currently, but as a POC we want to proof we wouldn't need an agent on all database boxes, but can leverage SQL Server Client Network Utility.

Hi

We have a variable, used in our deployment plans, to identify individual assemblies to be copied to servers (when patching a release). This works fine is a wildcard can be used to identify the file(s). However, sometimes, we need to deploy multiple files which one wildcard (apart from *.dll) will not suffice.

Is it possible to append multiple wildcards together? For example, with a semi-colon or comma seperator?

Thanks.

Hi,

I'm getting the following error when creating a new build:

System.ArgumentException: String was not recognized as a valid DateTime.Couldn't store <2012/10/15 10:36:10:AM> in DATE Column. Expected type is DateTime. ---> System.FormatException: String was not recognized as a valid DateTime.

My deployment plan has one action which is to execute database change scripts. The change script executed without errors in the change script window.

How do we limit the amount of history (stored artifacts etc) BuildMaster stores?

Due to the vast levels we currently have, we need to store them on a large network drive but this has a negative effect on build performance.

Please advise.

We are trying out BuildMaster, due to the nature of our Network Architecture, we are dealing with a few firewalls that prevent us from using a Push Approach, so the build master sends commands to the agent. Our Company requires a Pull Approach where the Agent constantly asks the service if there are new commands that it needs to run.

Please let me know if you can solve this?

I am getting the following error with executing database change scripts. My database connections are set, active, tested, and initialized. I tested executing a script through the SQL Change Scripts window, and that also worked. Any suggestions on how to proceed?

Thanks,

Hello,
Do you have any plans to have integration with HP's Quality Center (formerly Test Director, also called Application Lifecycle management (ALM)) in the near future?

Can I Rename a CONFIG File? The namespace of one of our projects has changed, and this will require a rename to one of our CONFIG files. How should I do this?
I'd like to not lose the CONFIG file history.

I'm trying to add users to our BuildMaster installation. I went to the Admin page and clicked "User Accounts & Log-Ins". We are using LDAP integration. Since we are a large corporation, we have thousands of AD accounts and groups in our domain. I cannot view all of them from the Users page. The table of users stops at about 1000. I've also noticed that not all our AD Groups are displayed on the Edit User page.

Now, I was able to manually build the Edit User hyperlink to be able to add the User I need, but I wanted to let you know that this is a challenge for us. I'm not sure how you would sole this (perhaps with some search functionality instead of display all results of a query), but I'd like to see some improved LDAP / AD integration features in a future release.

Thanks very much, and have a great day.

I just added a step to one of my project's workflows (DEV) as we realized we needed a new environment. I then tried to update the CONFIG files to add the text for the new environment, and I found I could not add another instance to the CONFIG file. What do you think of adding a feature to allow another instance to the CONFIG files? That way, I don't have to create a new CONFIG file and lose the history of the new one. I'd really rather not manually change the database...

Thanks,
Matthew

We recently established a standard in our organization that custom developed applications will follow a Release Numbering Scheme of Major.Minor.Revision. We currently have a few projects in BuildMaster where the Release Numbering Scheme is set to Major.Minor. Can I change the scheme for those projects, or would I need to create new ones?

Hi,

I have my solution with more than 100 projects. I ideally would like to do something as what my current build scripts or VS does. Currently, I just build the solution file and each projects outputs to its respective 'bin\Release' folder. I then simply package the executables based on their files in the output dir which is bin\Release for each project.

I am trying to achieve the same with BM but could not do this in the same way how I can do this in VS. In BM, if I build my solution with any action (either build .Net project or MSBuild action), always the OutDir defined in BM, makes all the projects' output go in to the same, single OutDir folder. All projets in the entire solution build in to single output folder. So, ideally, to prepare the deployable components, I first need to build the solution (to check for any build errors) and then have to individually build projects, so I can sepcify individual output folder for each build action !

This seems so basic but may be I am missing something and could not get to meaningfully build my solution.

Is this possible at all ? Any help is appreciated.

Thanks.
