Deploy to a specific machine?

Postby swinghouse » Thu Jan 03, 2013 9:05 am

Under Projects -> Releases in the web interface I can choose which environment I want to deploy to, but what if there are several machines in one environment and I'd like to deploy a release to a specific machine?

Is that possible?

This would be very handy for us as well. Typically when a release is large we'll want to take a server out of load, release and test it then flip servers over and release to the rest.

We could trick it by having a server in a separate environment however the config transforms match up to environment names.

Dan,

Good initiative! Your suggestion just got a vote from me.

Currently this isn't possible I'm afraid.

You might be able to get the functionality you want by pulling out your single test server out into a "canary" environment, and deploying to that environment first, then deploying to a "production" environment which contains the other server.

I know that this would require you to make a "canary" config transform which is a copy of the "release" transform, but this should only be as much work as creating a separate config transform for each separate machine.
