Hi,

I am evaluating BM for my team and having no way to get through this.

I build a exe. project (using Build .NET Project action or MSBuild action) and this is set up as an X86 project (Target Platforms - X86)since it contains some references to unmanaged code and does some Pinvoke stuff. This project refers to other projects which are built with 'Any Cpu' settings. (Target Platform- Any Cpu).

When I build this X86 executable project, I get an eror as 'Output path is not defined for all configruations in the the 'Any Cpu' project. No output path for Release and X86' in the referenced project. '

It works fine when I build the solution in VS. But with BM, again, I cannot build solution because I just cannot set bin\debug of all projects as the target dirs of respective projects and hence all the projects' output to a fixed single target dir folder. Hence, I had to go with building projects that need to be deployed but in this case stuck up with this output path issue !

How do I get around this. I am really stuck up having tried several options to build this project !

Any help is appreciated.

Hi,

I have a question about proget.

Does it allow to secure Feed with user/password ? (like in TeamCity, when someone is trying to list or download packages from NuGet using NuGet Gui or Conrole they are asked for password (it is simple auth) ?

We are evaluating using BuildMaster for our team and have some questions when comparing it to our current automated deployment approach.

We would typically like to configure a deployment plan that is consistent (i.e. the same) for a number of separate environments. When we deploy an application we would typically like to select which database and target server we would like to deploy to, and have the deployment complete the same steps, but just change the target server and database connection.

It appears that with BuildMaster we would have the following limitations:

  1. We would need to setup a separate deployment plan for each server that we want to target.
  2. We could not share/link action groups because the actions within the group would be run on a specific target server, not parameterized in some way.
  3. We would need to copy an action group to share the same actions for a separate target server, then edit each action in the group to change the target server (note that some actions would likely run on a build server rather than a target server too).

With a lot of servers involved, if these steps are required it would make it difficult to manage.

An alternative would seem to be that if we could tie the selection of a target server and database connection to variables most of these limitations would be eliminated.

Are we missing something when considering BuildMaster's capabilities? If not, would use of variables for changing the target server or database connection be something that may be included in a future release perhaps?

Thanks!

Is there an example somewhere of how to create an extension Database action? We have been able to create and install a C# component to implement an action, but when we attempt to add a new action it first prompts to select a DB connection, then displays 2 Extension Properties: DatabaseProviderId and ProviderId (which are initially empty).

We would have expected that the Action Form would have provided a selection option for the DB connection, but perhaps we're missing a step to define the contents of the customized Action Form?

Any help would be appreciated!

I would like to automate the step of backing up our Production database and restoring it to my Test database so I can test running the change scripts over production data. There is no concern for prod data in a test environment.

However, I can't figure out how to connect to the Prod database from the TEST or DEV environment deployment plans without creating another connection. Is there a better way to do this?

Thanks,
Matthew

I am using ProGet 1.08. I noticed that some of the packages which are displayed in packages list (using the web interface) are not found when searching for them.
After investigation a little further, I found out that the issue only occurs when the .nupkg file is structured such that in the "lib" folder, the DLLs are located in sub-folder named "net35". The search works fine when for example the sub-folder name is "3.5" or "net40"

My company would like to use BuildMaster to audit configuration file changes. We have a legacy external system that logs all our Change Controls, and I'd like to reference that system using a comment each time I deploy a Change Control. This field would be similar to the comments field used elsewhere in BuildMaster like on builds.

Is there a better place to make this request?

Version 3.2.2 (Build 23)

I am trying to get ClickOnce published application using your MiniCalculator example, but it just doesn't work out of the box.

First of all, by default it can't find MiniCalc.pfx, so it doesn't sign anything (mage.exe says "File not found - "MiniCalc.pfx"), and I get the following error if I try to install the application:


  • Application manifest has either a different computed hash than the one specified or no hash specified at all.
  • File, MiniCalc.exe.manifest, has a different computed hash than specified in manifest.

Second, if I specify just certificate hash without certificate's name and password (both fields are empty and the check box is unchecked), then mage.exe generates "Out of range exception".

Third, if I specify local certificate path (created manually from VS) and password, then mage.exe finally says "MiniCalc.exe.manifest successfully signed" but installation of the application still fails with the same error (see above).

Am I missing something simple?
Are you planning to improve ClickOnce expirience?

In ProGet 1.0.7 (build 7) the Cache Packages option doesn't seem to work. Pre-caching packages works fine, and they get stored in C:\ProgramData\ProGet\Packages\Default ok, but for all packages not explicitly pre-cached, ProGet will retrieve the package from the connector and not save it.

Is this normal?

Hi

What we are trying to do is kick off two other application , a web service app and then a web app.
If we run the two apps individual , ie create release, build ext and promote .. All works fine.
If we create a new app with the same workflow steps (internal, stage, prod)

  • In app for Internal we have two new “Create new build actions” for the web service and web app ..
  • On the second stage we have two promote build actions for the web service / web site . ie from internal to stage

When we run the new app , ie create release/ build.. the first stage passes ie build to internal, then if we promote we see the web service build and then get a strange error

Build 1 for Nebula And Members 4.4 (27/07/2012 1:51:06 AM)
Action Group 1: Deploy To Stage
Action 1: Force Build in Nebula from Internal to Staging.
Preparing remote servers for execution...
Preparation complete.
Initializing Action...
Initialization Complete. Executing...
Build #52 of Nebula (4.24) is currently in Staging; expected Internal
Execution Complete. Finalizing...
Finalization Complete.

Are we doing something wrong , is this supported ?

Managing our deployment scenario would be greatly enhanced if we could deploy all Artifacts in one Action Group. We have this working in another deployment plan but not in the one I'm currently working on.

If I select the 'All Deployables' option I can't deploy any. I get an 'Artifact not found' error. However, the artifact IS there and I can see it and open it from the build's information screen.

What could be causing this?

Hello,

I am currently evaluation ProGet.
I have a feed which contains the RX Experimental packages, named Rx_Experimental-Main.1.1.11111

When I search for the package using ProGet web interface, the packages is not found. However I am able to browse to it.

Search for other packages seam to work fine.

We need to have two workflows for our app. One for the main, full, deployment through Dev, UAT, Staging, Production and the other for individual assembly patching.

I've developed a patching workflow which, for maintainability, uses the same integration deployment plan as the main workflow. This works fine generally as an environment variable keeps the artifacts seperated. However, the E:\BuildMaster_SVCTMP_A3 folder is currently being used by both workflows which is causing missing file exceptions etc.

How can I force the patching workflow to use a seperate set of folders? Is the 'A' of _A3 related to the app instance? If so, I guess we'll have to not build simutaneously.

The following error message occurs in any application we build that uses the imported deployable:

Unable to cast object of type 'System.DBNull' to type 'System.String'.

Ideas?

Hi,

I'm trying to configure buildmaster to use a github account for source code access, but it keeps loading without error messages, do you have any suggestions for that?

I'm guessing it's probably because of a missing SSH key or something like that. I tried to configure the buildmaster service to run under the Administrator account (which has ssh configured for github), but the same problem.

Hope you guys have any hints, thanks a lot in advance!

Michael
