We’re using AWS autoscaling to bring up new servers as load increases. We’ve got a startup script that registers the new VM as a tentacle with our Octopus server with the appropriate role and environment. However, the tentacle remains empty until we push a new deployment to the entire environment. Is there anyway that we can have the tentacle request/pull down the current deployment package from the server?
Thanks for reaching out. You can use Octo.exe to deploy a release to a specific machine. This should be easy enough to include on your startup script.
Hope that helps
