Server side exceptions:

System.ArgumentOutOfRangeException: startIndex cannot be larger than length of string.

Parameter name: startIndex

   at System.String.InternalSubStringWithChecks(Int32 startIndex, Int32 length, Boolean fAlwaysCopy)

   at Microsoft.TeamFoundation.Server.WebAccess.Routing.TfsRoute.GetRouteData(HttpContextBase httpContext)

   at System.Web.Routing.RouteCollection.GetRouteData(HttpContextBase httpContext)

   at System.Web.Routing.UrlRoutingModule.PostResolveRequestCache(HttpContextBase context)

   at System.Web.HttpApplication.SyncEventExecutionStep.System.Web.HttpApplication.IExecutionStep.Execute()

   at System.Web.HttpApplication.ExecuteStep(IExecutionStep step, Boolean& completedSynchronously)

Explanation:

This error occurred while trying to access the TFS 2012 update 3 server team project website for viewing boards or creating PBIs, bugs and other work items. The error can be reproduced by clicking back and forth a few times between the home page and CODE, WORK, TEST, etc. The issue was specific to one specific collection in the server. 

Fix:

One of the team project's shared query with wrong condition clause was trying to load 73000+ WIs which was pinned to the Team Favorites in the home page causing the issue. The issue was resolved after correcting the query.

Load Test: The test has not started yet

by XDK 4. February 2014 14:06

Exception:

"The test has not started yet"

Explanation:

The test run result window just lists the name of the machine from which it ran, but it never opens the results and also Test run state remains pending. After I double click on the machine test item it just says "The Test has not started yet". Not able to view the result online during load test execution time. 

 

Solution:

The VS 2010 client version which I used to execute the load was SP1. But the test rig environment version was only VS 2010 RTM. 

1. Installed the SP1 on test controller and agents

2. Reconfigured the agents to controller again.
