Multiple steps referencing same package aren't deploying in parallel

We are using SQL Ready Roll to deploy database changes using Octopus Deploy. Right now we have 25+ databases we deploy to that are all exactly the same (SaaS based application) and thus reference a single NuGet package that is shared across all 25+ steps in Octopus Deploy.

I have all the steps set to run in parallel but I keep getting this message for all the parallel steps except for one of them being executed.

This Tentacle is currently busy performing a task that cannot be run in conjunction with any other task. Please wait…

How can I get Octopus Deploy to deploy the same package in parallel?


Hi Greg,

Thanks for getting in touch. I was able to reproduce this and I’ve submitted a github issue for it. You can track its progress on this link
