TFS / LabManager 2010: Environment stuck in Starting... status RRS feed

  • Question

  • One of our test environments has been stuck in the Starting... status and I can't find a way to fix it.

    Environment has one or more warnings. The warning is as follows:

    Environment message: Type=Warning; Message=The operation on this environment did not make any progress for some duration now. Visual Studio Team Foundation Background Job Agent service might have abruptly stopped. Contact administrator to have the service restarted.;


    The background Job Agent seemed fine, but I've restarted it a few times just to be sure. I rebooted the TFS server, the Test Controller, and the Test Agent machines.

    All of the menu options to Start, Stop, Power Off the environment are greyed out, and when I open the environment of course I get "Settings cannot be modified because the environment was not in off state when this wizard was opened."

    Is there a way to force the environment to stop?
