Machine-specific web config RRS feed

    A Tale of Two Developers, both remote.  And a database in-house.

    Running Entity Framework against a database remotely is horribly, horribly, horribly, horribly, horribly, horribly, horribly slow.  Certain screens that take 15 seconds to load on-site take 10 minutes plus when the developer is trying to debug.

    (remote developer running VS locally, but the database is in-house.  All that data is flying from the server to the desktop over the VPN.)

    So.  Developer B and I have backed-up/restored the database to our local machines, BUT if either of us tries to edit Web.Config, Team Foundation Server locks the other one out.

    What I'd like to see in web.config is something like this, https://andrewlock.net/how-to-use-machine-specific-configuration-with-asp-net-core/ but for regular old .NET not core Framework.

    Hi some_yahoo,

    According to your description,it seems that you are using TFVC repository.I suggest that you could share the result about how TFS lock the other one out.

    Else I think it's problem about TFS ,I hope you could post this case to MSDN TFS forums.Here is the link,I hope it could help you.


    Best Regards
