Tentacle.exe register-with override machine name

Is it possible to specify the machine name to be used when doing the scripted configuration of a tentacle. I have 3 environments which are clones of each other so have 3 servers with the same name on separate network segments. I wish to run the script and state the machine name so “web1” become “web1uat” as far as octopus is concerned, obviously each set of machines will be linked to separate octopus envirments ??

Hi Simon,

Yes, you should just need to pass:

--name="Some Machine Name"

To the register-with command.


Great thanks that’s easy, sorry could not see this in the documentation


No worries at all; running:

Tentacle.exe help register-with

should print all of this info to the console; just Tentacle.exe help lists available commands.
