We have a three environment deployment which does IT - Internal Test, UAT, Production. The IT deployment has been working for some time, the OD process as a whole is a copy of ones used on several clients.
However, when trying to add a new UAT server I’m getting an error I’ve not encountered before. It happens when the Tentacle is extracting the package to the e:/octopus/application folder which in the log you will see on the server is e:\o.
Here is the logging of the issue
Log.txt (4.4 KB)
The tentacle is a new install it is running 3.16.3. The file exists in the package and as mentioned the deployment works on the environment before this one. So it appears to be environment-specific, the server is Windows 2019 datacentre edition. I’ve tried
- extracting the package file on the server to the destination folder and that works okay.
- running the build again from the start with a new package file
- removing and reinstalling the tentacle
- renaming the /octopus/application to be /o just to see if it is file length related
If I manually extract the package to the octopus application folder I can see that the file it complains about looks like this in windows explorer
the path has \?\ on the front. If I move the file up a level that disappears. So I assume that is ‘why’ it cannot find?
Any help would be much appreciated, I’m stumped at what needs configuring to get this server working the same as the other one.
