Incremental deployment and downtime RRS feed

  • Question

  • According to this site: http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/windowsazure/hh535756.aspx configuring deployment for incremental update should update instances one by one and not introduce any downtime during deployment. However, I've experienced a hang while requesting the app during a deployment. I wanted to find out if this is a known issue or a blip in the load balancer.

    My production site is configured with incremental deployment while my staging site is configured for simultaneous. Both have 3 instances of a web role and 1 instance of a service role.

    Here is the output of the deployment activity log in visual studio for my production deployment.
