by Xavier Dilip Kumar 24. June 2013 07:23

ERROR

"Run On Agent (reserved build agent <Agent1>). There was no endpoint listening at <TFS url> that could accept the message. This is often caused by an incorrect address or SOAP action. See InnerException, if present, for more details.Cannot stop the build. Details: Operation did not complete in 00:01:00. (After trying to stop the build) TF215104: Failed to stop build 23649: it did not respond to a workflow cancellation request."

Solution

1) Identify and Remove the queued builds data from dbo.tbl_BuildQueue table in the Tfs_CollectionName database.

select * from dbo.tbl_BuildQueue
delete from dbo.tbl_BuildQueue where QueueID = 'ID'

2) Remove the build agent from the controller

Identify the build agent and note the value of ReservationId and AgentId.
SELECT * FROM tbl_BuildAgent

DELETE FROM tbl_BuildAgentReservation WHERE ReservationId = [ReservationId]
UPDATE tbl_BuildAgent SET ReservationId = NULL WHERE AgentId = [AgentId].

Remove the Build Agent from TFS Admin Console.

TF250061: The following site could not be attached to Team Foundation Server: The site is already associated with a team project on an installation of Team Foundation Server with a different ID.

by Xavier Dilip Kumar 20. June 2013 05:19

Explanation:

I had this problem when I migrated TFS 2010 collection to TFS 2012 instance and having the collection online on both TFS 2010 and TFS 2012 instances in parallel.

Solution:

To fix the problem, you need to disable the team project portal links either on TFS 2010 or TFS 2012 collection --> Team projects and run the SharePoint repair on the APP TIER using TFS administration console.

 Following are the steps I followed to fix the error in TFS 2012 instance

1. Open Team Explorer in Visual Studio --> Connect to TFS 2010 instance --> Select the team project that needs the fix --> goto "Portal Settings" --> Unchecked the "Enable Team Project Portal checkbox" --> click OK

 

 

2. Login to TFS 2012 App Tier --> Open TFS Administration console --> Select "Share Point Web Applications" --> Select the SharePoint URL --> click "Repair Connection" --> Repair option

All the permissions and connections to the team projects Share point sites should succeed.

(Optional)

3. Login to TFS 2010 App Tier --> Open TFS Administration console --> Select "Share Point Web Applications" --> Select the SharePoint URL --> click "Repair Connection" --> Repair option

All the permissions and connections to the team projects Share point sites should succeed.

TF10152: The item $/ must remain locked because its file type prevents multiple check-outs.

by Xavier Dilip Kumar 24. January 2013 10:34

Explanation

Any time a pending change is made to an item, the file types list is checked to see if the extension requires automatic locking at checkout. The idea behind automatic locking is that some file types (images, for example) are hard to merge, and that it may be beneficial to keep two people from working on the same item at the same time.

Workaround

The list of file extensions is configurable through the Team Explorer by right-clicking the root (server) node and selecting Team Foundation Server Settings → Source Control File Types.

 

 

 

To disable automatic locking by file type, you can find the file extension you're interested in, click Edit... and check the box for "Enable file merging and multiple checkout."
