[Solved] TFS Task CLI Offline


We’ve just carried out a merge of some TFS servers, as a result we needed to remove our Octopus TFS Tasks (previously v2) and we are now using v3. When running a build we are now getting this error message:

Our build servers have no internet connectivity. I gather that the Task looks in a local cache before querying the internet. Can you please let me know how I can setup the local cache to get the build machine working?

Aha! Figured it out, I can use the “Tools Installer” task to install the tooling that’s embedded in that task which works OK

Glad you got it sorted out! I’ll close this ticket off now so our tracking system is all happy
