We run a cloud based infrastructure with the ability to spin up more servers as load requires it.
We’re looking at using Octopus Deploy for all of our deployment needs and we are wondering if there is a way to have a Tentacle already installed on the image that we use.
To try this; I created a new server, installed the tentacle, took a snapshot of that server and then created a new server from the snapshot. The new machine was then added to Octopus. When running the health check there was a warning message of
This machine shares its endpoint..
I’m assuming that this is because there are two tentacles that share the same thumbprint and Octopus believes that they are the same server, just added twice. Is there a way that we can have the tentacle installed on our image but generate new thumb prints when we spin up a new server?
