TFS 2010 Build Agent - Cannot Delete Agent or Change Controllers RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    On a particular TFS 2010 Build Server, a build agent can not be deleted.  Additionally, I can't change the controller either.  The agent was not executing any workflows (aka builds) and is currently disabled.  I have 2 other agents ont he box that are working fine.

    The error received in a message popup is

    "Cannot delete agent 'TFSBLD01 - Agent3':

    The build agent TFSBLD01 - Agent3 cannot be removed from the build controller

    TFSController2 - Controller because it is currently reserved for a build.


    Something's I've tried and have failed.

    1) Uninstall TFS Build service and reinstall - TFS still recognizes the agent

    2) Changing controllers

    3) Deleting agent

    How can I remedy this problem?  Are there some DB tables that I could look into and find the problem?
