Hotfix installer hangs
Jun 8 2010 at 10:19 PM
I am trying to enable TSWA URL in email notifications so that checkin notification emails will have links to the Team System Web Access page. We have TFS 2008 and TSWA SP1.
The problem I am facing is that the hotfix installler just hangs at one point for hours and it does not even cancel on clicking the cancel button. I had to kill the installation process from task manager each time I ran the hotfix.
I have tried installing the hotfix 3 times, first time around some SPIDs in the DB got blocked and brought the TFS down.
Second time, I took the DBs in restricted mode (nt sure if this is the correct way) and tried to run the hotfix but again the installer hung at the same point.
Third time, I ran the hotfix as an administrator(ran it from D$) but the result was the same.
I am really stuck at this point and my engineering team is pushing for this feature to be activated in our TFS instance.
Any inputs would be greatly appreciated.
