This message is coming up when the website renders. If I close out and try to go to other pages too, it is not rendering the page and the same message comes up.

For some reason, the nightly builds for some applications have stopped running. Why?

Think the title says it all. Is it possible to delete a deployment plan? If so, how?

How do I sign my .NET assembly in BuildMaster v3?

After an upgrade, our LDAP stopped working. We reverted back to built-in for now.

In the database, I note that the searchrootpath is blank. I think thats why it can't find anything for users. What should that format be??

Properties SearchRootPath=""

Please note that with the trigger builds set, in the automatic builds overview screen you are outputting the password right on the screen which I think is not the desired behavior.

I don't need anyone seeing my password that is reviewing it.

We have an 'Execute Database Scripts' Action which picks up all scripts in the source folder with a search filter of '*.sql'.

This all works fine apart from the log claims to run each script everytime (which is the behaviour we want) but, in fact, it seems each script is run once and only once!

No matter how many time the deployment occurs, a script never seems to run again - regardless of what the log says.

Could you please confirm the expected behaviour here and how we can get our desired functionality?

Thanks.

PS. This is affecting a large project which is already in production and is relying on Build Master to simplify all aspects of deployments inclusing DB scripts.

We're looking for a way to signal a build promotion via some means external to buildmaster's deploy plans. Anything that can be run with command line or powershell will do.
Last we left off, we looked into loading the buildmaster API into powershell to see if it had any such functions, but we weren't familiar enough with that, and we couldn't quite figure it out. We're also looking into using the database's stored procedure, Builds_PromoteBuild, to accomplish this.
If there's a standard way of handling this situation, please let me know. If there's anything I should specify, please let me know, as well.

We have installed the upgrade, all went fine until we logged in.

We are setup with LDAP for authentication. All browsers say a version of this:

The page isn't redirecting properly

Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.

This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies.

Is it possible to upload nested directories to an S3 bucket? I have the following tree:

\media
\media\video
\media\audio

etc.

And want to upload all of them at once. Using a file mask of . or *. doesn't seem to work.

When trying to update to 3.0.5 of BuildMaster the installation failed when trying to backup the DB (connection timeout was the error). Unfortunately it left our system in a corrupted state.

We restored the BuilMaster folder from backup and all seems okay but when I try to run the install again it only gives me 'uninstall' option and says 3.0.5 is the installed version.

Presumably this is a setting in the registry but I have no access to this as I'm not local admin on the machine.

Please advise.

Is there a way to set ClickOnce manifest settings with the Prepare ClickOnce Application action? In particular, I want to set deployment | trustURLParameters to true.

I tried setting the value in the manifest after the Prepare ClickOnce Application action, but of course that failed because the signing was no longer valid.

BuildMaster 3.0.5 (Build 6)

Thanks.

Is it possible to get the S3 extension to be able to use/choose between more than one AWS user? I like the current form and it accomplishes most of my needs but it would be more useful for it to have access to more than one account.

I am running an automated regression based on promoting a build to a new environment; in this case from Dev to QA. Our unit tests run fine as they are housed on the build server, but the distributed tests are causing an issue with integration of agents for both BuildMaster and TFS.

We tried using the MStest action and pointing it to the test configuration file as well as the MSTest executable on both target machine and build server.

Is there an accepted best practice for this with BuildMaster.

replies

I have some integration tests running with MSTest.exe via BuildMaster. Rather than specifying the DLL as the Test File, I specify the orderedtest file (as they need to run in order).

This works fine in that they run, however, if the tests fail, they show as Succeeded. I need to know when these tests fail.

I suspect it's the ordertest which is causing this as we have other tests, which are not ordered, and the show up as failed if errors occur.

Note: I have the 'Resume Next on Failure' switched off.

Please advise ASAP.

Thanks.

I am having an issue with getting by label steps for an application suite. The different apps are stored in separate folders and are not always built as a full set. Each has its own set of steps to go through a build.

Recently the get by label steps for multiple apps have failed due to a scope issue. It appears that the labels are being referenced at the root project level.

Each app is part of a release clled 1.0.5 and that is where the issue comes as each app gets a similar label based on build number. The labels are only applied to the specific App source code folder.

How can I specify a scope when trying to get the labelled code?

How should i add multiple users to a notifier? It says ";" separated, but it is not working either with a space or without. I recently tried a ; and newline but that also failed to send. I can get one recipient without issue. Please advise.
