Our sincere thanks to everyone who has contributed on this bug
tracker over the years. Thanks also for your understanding as we
make these adjustments and improvements for the future.
Please create a new report on
Developer Community with
your current version information, steps to reproduce, and relevant error
messages or log files if you are hitting an issue that looks similar to
this resolved bug and you do not yet see a matching new report.
When a build server goes offline, the user should know about it as soon as they try to do something else that requires a build host.
There was a previous bug where the user would be told about the timeout in a very bad way (a long time after it was relevant, for instance). That was bug 9862. Now they see nothing at all.
Instead, we should provide the user with the appropriate action for the state they are in: Choose a new build host!
Steps to reproduce:
1. Connect MTVS to a build host
2. Make the build host unavailable on the network
3. Start a build from MTVS
User should be re-prompted to connect to a build host
IDE shifts to debug mode for a split second, and then returns you to the source you were looking at.
Exception in the Mac Server Log: https://gist.github.com/pjbeaman/298a10f71b62fc5675e1
So it does seem like it's trying to open the connection wizard, but we get the "Failed to show connection wizard" warning and the invalid operation exception.
iOS for VS 1.1.201
The intention and steps here do not match. The intention is to prompt to connect when you need a host, but just starting a build does not require one. Deploying to the sim or device is what should trigger the reconnection.
Yes indeed, I mean initiating the build + run actions. (Or just the run actions). Thank you.
is not working PJ?
What is happening when you press Start ?
That's the 'actual' behavior from the description:
IDE shifts to debug mode for a split second, and then returns you to the source
you were looking at.
Exception in the Mac Server Log:
Exception is fairly clear that it's not showing the connection dialog.
It's possible this is fixed in master, I filed against 1.1.201. Is it working for you?
PJ is working fine on master. this is 1.1.268 from wrench
Please retest with the latest builds from master
Today we have checked this issue with following builds:
And we observed that when VS is connected to build host server and build host server gets unreachable and we click on Start button or Refresh button, 'Connect to Xamarin.iOS Build host window popup appears to connect with another build host. This is the screencast for the same: http://screencast.com/t/QauOwIrWX
