Calamari.exe not found


I’m getting the following error on deploys to a specific machine:

& : Die Benennung "C:\Octopus\Calamari\3.5.4\Calamari.exe" wurde nicht als

How can this happen?

The machine also has out-of-date an Tentacle. On Upgrade I get the same message.
It still has the Calamari 3.5.3 Folder which seems to be complete. Folder “3.5.4” also exists, but is missing a lot of files.

We’re using Octopus 3.5.2

EDIT: I just found out that the affected machine was restored yesterday. I guess that’s the problem here. What’s the cleanest way to restore a working state?

Hi Jan,

Thanks for reaching out. Try deleting the 3.5.4 folder so Octopus defaults to 3.5.3 which seems to be complete. Calamari will be updated to the latest version during the next deployment.

Let me know if after that update post deployment you still get this error.


Hi Dalmiro,

thanks, this was too easy :slight_smile:
Everything works flawlessly again, now.
