I’m configuring a new Octopus Deploy server and am having problems testing my first deployment. I am getting the following error in the “Download packages from NuGet” release step:
A child activity failed: The package could not be downloaded from NuGet. Please see the below errors for details. If you are getting a package verification error, try switching to a Windows File Share package repository to see if that helps.

I have the Octopus website application pool running under a local machine account. The Nuget repository is a file share on a machine in another domain. The share grants read permissions to a local user account with the same username and password as the one hosting the Octopus site. When I test the Nuget repository from the Octopus configuration page, it works correctly and shows the packages.
Am I missing something?
EDIT: I believe I have found what I was missing. I had to setup the Octopus service, in addition to the app pool, to run under the local machine account I created instead of its default of Local System. I’m not sure if this will have any other impacts but I’m now able to get packages and deploy them to tentacles.
