Corrupt files after "Get version" operation RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

     

    we have problems with the "Get version" command (both "get latest" and "get specific"):

    After executing a "Get version" we have several corrupt files on the local drive.

    • The number of files is OK and their names are also OK.
    • But some code files (*.cs) blow up to more than 1MB size. Examining them with a hex editor will show some binary contents which starts with the sequence "ITSF" (49 54 53 46 ...)
    • Some code files have the contents of other code files (e.g. the code file "MyCodeFile.cs" has the contents of "MyOtherCodeFile.cs")

    If we repeat the "Get version", some other file are corrupt.

     

    We have had this problem with the TFS2005 and the VS2005. Now we want to migrate to TFS2008 and VS2008. During our evaluation of TFS2008 we run into the same problems now.

     

    Is this a known issue? Can anybody help us?

     

    Regards

    Dirk

  • Are you using a proxy server?  Any chance that you restored the DB on the data tier or moved the data tier without reinitializing the proxy server?

  • No, we are using not a proxy server.

     

    But we are using the Kaspersky virus scanner. After we disabled the scanner temporarily, we had not trouble anymore. After we enabled the virus scanner, we got the corrupt files again. We will contact the Kaspersky support now...

  • Glad to hear you were able to track it down to Kaspersky.

    Just to add clarity to Ben's note -- this can happen w/o a proxy server.  Whenever you change the data tier directly (including restores, moves, etc) you have to purge the file caches, including all proxies and the one on the main app tier.

  • We experienced the same problem at our company after installing Kaspersky.  Does anyone know if Kaspersky has responded or provided a fix?

     

    Thanks.
