About 8am NY time November 2, 2022, suddenly my Team City Cloud agents were not able to run Powershell. We use Powershell build steps throughout our builds, and all of them suddenly stopped working. There were no code changes, or parameter changes or anything different. These same steps have been running without fail for a year and a half every day.
To confirm, we created a new Test build with one build step. The build step used a Powershell runner, and the powershell script just set the value of a variable. Everything else was generic, default settings.
All the builds, including the new Test build, encountered the same error.
Could not select PowerShell for given bitness <Auto>
Step Test (PowerShell) failed with unexpected error
We had no requirements listed for powershell bitness or platform, or anything.
I have submitted a ticket to support, but did not receive a response. I wonder if anyone or everyone else who has PowerShell runners for build steps is experiencing this. Our setup is totally generic, and the sudden nature of this error makes me think some upgrade to the generic agents went wrong.
Please respond if you are experiencing similar issues.
