One error we got quite often, but not always, btw: we are pushing packages during our TFS(xaml) builds, the build service runs as domain user:

Invoke NuGet push error: Failed to process request. 'There was an error processing the request: The process cannot access the file 'C:\ProgramData\ProGet\Packages.nugetv2\F1\Upper.MapProject.Newsletter.Module\Upper.MapProject.Newsletter.Module.1.6.nupkg' because it is being used by another process.'.

Invoke NuGet push error: The remote server returned an error: (500) Internal Server Error..

Any ideas?

Any ideas we are pushing the packages via nuget.exe push…. so I don’t know which process is also using the file mentioned above.

Using 5.6.1 (Build 3)

I'm having trouble specifying the parameters of Ensure-AppPool that are of type TypeSpan.

If I use simple integers then I get the following error: Timespan value must be between 00:00:00 and 1.00:00:00 seconds inclusive, with a granularity of 60 seconds

If I use the format shown in the error message above then I get the following error message: Cannot convert value "00:05:00" to TimeSpan type.

I have been attempting to use the proget docker feed, I have managed to Login:

docker login

Username: Admin

Password: Admin

That works fine.

I tag my image, but then when I push:

docker push

I get the following response:

I have updated the docker daemon config so it does not require SLL, I have removed wincred from the docker config.json file and bypassed proxy setting for that ipaddress.
Is there anything else i need to configure on the proget server for this to work?

your installer ProGetSetup4.5.4_SQLExpress.exe contains suspicious files (bmdbupdate.exe) according to Avira. A generic signature named "TR/Dropper.Gen" is found. Please fix.

It seems that everytime a package is accessed, the following error is thrown. We're running the latest version of ProGet.

Hi Guys,

I have an application that uses a MS Access database, and as part of its deployment i modify one of the values to match the environment using a power shell script.

The problem is that the Jet database provider only functions in the 32 bit version of power shell. To make it work in BM I have to copy the script to the target server, and i initiate another power shell that starts the 32 bit shell and runs the end script.

Is there any way to make this script run natively in BM, by forcing it to call as 32 bit?

When view configuration The status of the ProGet Package is always Drifted


Not sure if this is a Buildmaster HTTP Post issue or a ProGet API issue.
I've tried several iterations of the HTTP Post to try and promote a package on ProGet.
I've followed everything I can find on both subjects but have been unable to get it to work.

What I'm not sure about is how to enter JSON in the BuildMaster HTTP post function. I've tried TextData and FormData.

The issue I'm having is that I keep getting a 401 unauthorized however I am putting in an API Key that is configured for Promotion API on ProGet.

Here is what I have been trying:

    Post-Http http://progetserver/api/promotions/promote
        ContentType: application/json,
        TextData: key: "API Key entered here", 
            packageName: "Package Name",
            user: "Admin username",
            version: "54.0.0",
            fromFeed: "src feed",
            toFeed: "dest feed",
            comments: "This package promoted by BuildMaster",
        LogRequestData: true,
        LogResponseBody: true

I've also tried it with FormData but that didn't work, which I would expect in this case.

Just starting to dive into the API functionality in BuildMaster.

Am I right in understanding that there's a generic API (like the one here) and a Native API (like the one here)?

  • I tried calling http://<buildmaster>/api/ - which didn't give me anything (just a 404)
  • I tried calling http://<buildmaster>/api/soap - which gave the the SOAP methods (YAY!)
  • But then I tried calling http://<buildmaster>/api/json - which gave me no response at all

Ideally I'd like to be using the generic api (e.g. /api/releases/packages/deploy), which seems to not be found, but failing that the Native JSON api would be good.

Are there any examples of this (request-response sort of examples)? Do I need to enable the JSON API?

Any advice would be appreciated =)

We are using Proget integrated with Active Directory. We are attempting to use integrated security but it isn't working. When we enable the "Enable integrated authentication", we are presented with a popup authentication for integrated security but regardless of if I type a valid or invalid user name/password, I get a 400 error and just get a blank screen. The only way to get back in is to go in the database and manually reset the setting back.

We are using the Web.UseIntegratedWebServer enabled. The Web.UserDirectoryId = 2 although that in itself is a little confusing since we have Built-In, LDAP and Active Directory with Multiple Domains. I believe 2 means to use Active Directory with Multiple Domains. Either way, we have configured the security appropriately for the users attempting to authenticate. Also, Web.LoadBalancingMode is also enabled although I'm not sure that is needed or relevant to this issue.
