Tentacle needs to unregister itself

Currently, I do not see a command using Tentacle.exe or octo.exe to unregister a tentacle.

We are having a problem with an autoscaling group. When a dead tentacle exists, the deployments take so long that it prevents a deployment from happening in a timely manner. The autoscaling group destroys the instance, and the problem compounds itself. After a few hours, you have an environment with 15-20 dead instances in it. I need a tentacle to unregister itself on shutdown.

Any ideas?


Hi Doug,

Currently this is achieved using the API/client: http://docs.octopusdeploy.com/display/OD/Octopus.Client.

You might take a look at https://github.com/MRCollective/AzureWebFarm.OctopusDeploy for an Azure-focused take on this - the project solves many of the problems you’ll encounter in this scenario.
