a bit of background: I had octopus polling tentacles running on a couple of servers and they have worked well with my cloud instance for a while. I recently received our cloud instances, but since then our tentacles keep failing their health checks and not responding.
I am attempting to reinstall the tentacles because I noticed new installations working correctly on my machine.
Can anyone help with uninstalling Octopus tentacle from my windows server?
I was following this, but I think I reached a broken state.
I have uninstalled the running tentacle instance. I have made a backup of my applications folder.
When I try to uninstall it from the control panel a progress bar opens and closes quickly, but the application is not uninstalled.
When I try to install a new version with Octopus.Tentacle.6.1.736-x64.msi I get
“The Octopus Deploy Tentacle Setup Wizard ended prematurely…”
Are there any logs that can help diagnose this further? The event viewer doesn’t say much.
Just that the installation failed and Installation success or error status: 1603. Which I believe just means fatal error.
Does anyone know how I can get out of this mess? Do I need to reset the server completely?
