I just wanted to point out that if your Chef clients are running low on disk resources, it could be worth checking your chef/cache/backup directory for temporary artefacts. I was recently looking at a Visual Studio 2015 installation recipe, trying to work out why it seemed to need more than 12Gb of resources, when the actual media was only 3.8Gb ...Both ......

Further to my previous post, I have uploaded the code as a JSFiddle.1. Default view of list of usersA full list of all users in the "Users" table is retrieved and displayed. "Edit" and "Delete" buttons appear alongside each entry.2. Edit an existing user entryThe default text that appears when you edit an existing entry depends on your implementation ......

Envisage almost any data-driven user interface, and sooner or later you will probably come across a requirement like: - present the user with a list (of users, addresses, products, etc.) - allow the user to edit or delete an existing item in the list - allow the user to create a new item and add it to the listI decided to have a look at several web-based ......

If you google carefully, it appears there are some resources to help with a common problem.But just for good measure, here's my own implementation, which utilises the fact sq(n) = (n-1)(n+1)+1, and the difference between two terms "t" apart in the resultant series is 2t + 3. Theoretically this should give you the square root in a single iteration, once ......

Desired State Configuration -- rightfully so -- is getting a lot of press just now, and it is becoming synonymous with certain deployment solutions, like Chef and Puppet. What about the others -- for example, Nolio or Octopus Deploy? Are they going to fall by the wayside because they don't "do" DSC? What about MSBuild? What about WiX? I want to clear ......

If you’re writing Step templates, here are some things you may want to consider. * Write a script you can run inside or outside of Octopus There are two reasons why you're unlikely to code substantial scripts within the Octopus IDE itself. First off, you don't get the Intellisense and completion you get with the Powershell ISE. Secondly, there's no ......

When you're deploying an application, you'll usually want to start by removing any previous installations of it. With MSI files, this is often less trivial than at first it appears. Typically you have two options if you're going to script this on the command line: either you uninstall the MSI by ProductCode, or you uninstall it by pointing to the previous ......

One of the first Octopus scripts I wrote was one to copy files and folders -- a pretty basic deployment activity. But periodically I found that resources were getting locked. I noticed that this was happening mostly when I stopped a Windows service prior to deleting and redeploying it. That makes sense. Typically when you issue a Stop command to a service, ......

Over the past months I've been putting together a minimal library of Octopus Deploy Step templates and "Library" scripts to cover all our common deployment scenarios. one of these was a Step template to unzip a file to a specified location. It took just two parameters -- UnzipFolder (the folder to which to unzip the file), and FilePath (the full path ......

One approach to deploying "Octopus Deploy" projects in a secure environment without installing a Tentacle or Production Octopus Deploy server.
