FIX: Builds in a gated check-in build definition incorrectly run concurrently and job fails in TFS 2010

The following issues occur in Microsoft Team Foundation Server (TFS) 2010.

Issue 1

Consider the following scenario:
  • You configure two or more build agents to allow for concurrent build requests in a build controller.
  • You select gated check-in as the trigger type when you define a build definition.
  • The build definition has two or more build requests in the Queued state while another build request has the InProgress state.

In this scenario, some builds in the build definition might incorrectly run concurrently in the build definition after the build in the InProgress state finishes.

Issue 2

When you try to run build requests in the build controller, the following exceptions are encountered, and the job fails:

<ResultMessage>[Build Warehouse Sync]: ---> Microsoft.TeamFoundation.Server.WarehouseException: TF221122: An error occurred running job Build Warehouse Sync for team project collection or Team Foundation server RXD. ---> Microsoft.TeamFoundation.Framework.Server.DatabaseOperationTimeoutException: TF246018: The database operation exceeded the timeout limit and has been cancelled. Verify that the parameters of the operation are correct. ---> System.Data.SqlClient.SqlException: Timeout expired. The timeout period elapsed prior to completion of the operation or the server is not responding


Cause of Issue 1

This issue occurs because of an error in the logic that decides which build is the next build.

When the InProgress build is finished, the incorrect logic might start more than one gated submission on a definition.

Cause of Issue 2

This issue occurs because errors exist in the build warehouse adapter and in the test management adapter.
