We cloned a production server that already had a tentacle installed, renamed the server and added it to our list of dev servers in Octopus Deploy.
We thought that this would be ok, based on this (slightly old) discussion.
However, the next time we did a dev deployment we caused an issue in production because Octopus Deploy had deployed to the production server that we’d previously cloned. Closer inspection in Octopus Deploy showed us that the cloned server (in dev) had the same tentacle thumbprint value as the production server.
It seems that we were able to create an invalid configuration - two machines with the same tentacle thumbprint. Could/should Octopus Deploy prevent this scenario from being possible?
