I am trying to connect mercurial repos to fisheye. The server that mercurial is running on is using a self-signed certificate for serving the mercurial repositories, and when I try to add the repo in fisheye (using password for https authentication and supplying the fisheye admin password for this), and testing the connection to the repo I get the error message:
Error testing connection.
Non-zero exit code: 255
As far as I can see, everything is configured correctly.
Mercurial appears to be configured correctly
Mercurial executable (hg) = /Program Files/TortoiseHg/hg.exe
Does the stack trace above point to anything useful I could try next?
a quick search using the stack trace lead to this issue:
It suggests that while the test connection reports a failure, actually adding/saving the repo results in correct indexing. Could you try adding the repos despite the failed tests and check whether they begin indexing?
Have you guys ever figured this out? I have a similar (same?) problem while testing a newly added mercurial repository.
The error message in my case:
Error testing connection.
process timed out
If I ignore the error and just Save the settings, the repository clone is at the first changeset:
Indexing commit 8ebd8aaa9bfc5e469a1ff5fce93c9c8bebd3ce80
The "Test" under "SCM details" for other repositories that were added sooner, works fine. No timeout, but "Connection succeeded".
If I clone the repository manually on the Fisheye server (windows command line) with the same username and password, it works. So it must be the Fisheye front/backend, in my opinion.
This might help (though not really making sense to me).
After several failed attempts to Test the connection, I just saved the configuration.
As mentioned, there was no indexing happening, as the indexer just stuck at the first commit.
I did "Re-clone and Re-index:" in the "Maintenance" menu, and all of a sudden the indexer started...
I finally managed to solve this (at least, partially).
The repository I tried to configure in Fisheye contained couple of thousand files!
After removing those (also from the history, by using the 'convert' extension of mercurial), I was able to clone and index the repository.
I hope this helps someone.
