Description Mikayla Hutchinson [MSFT] 2013-03-13 19:34:03 UTC
I'm on a subnet with 25 build hosts.

I can't connect to my build host, because it's stuck on "detecting". After 10 minutes it has detected 11 machines, found 12 to be "unreachable", and is stuck "detecting" mine and one other.

* It shows my build host but the status us stuck on "detecting"
* I can't choose to "connect" to my host while it's detecting (why?)
* It doesn't seem to be prioritizing detecting my build host, even though I selected it in the list
* Even after I diagnose the connection, and it the diagnosis is fine, status is still "detecting"

I tried entering my machine manually:
* It doesn't resolve the mdns (zeroconf) name, despite displaying the same as the machines found on zeroconf
* I can't remove the manually added item from the list

Also some nitpicks:
* I can't filter the list, which is annoying on such a big list with giant items - it only shows 4.5/25 machines
* There is half an item of blank space at the end of the list
* In the Diagnose window, the list cannot be scrolled with the mousewheel
* It's pointlessly spinning up all build servers on every machine in the office. Why does it even need to do this status polling?
* The textbox was not focused in the "configure host manually" dialog
