I’m not allowed to add links in my post so I’ll put search terms here:
- Docker builds from Windows executor failing to retrieve packages from internet
- circleci support Windows: The remote name could not be resolved
We’re having build failures which are due to name resolution failures when trying to get resources from the internet.
While diagnosing the issue we found this recent post (1) as well as this day-old support item (2), both suggesting to use the
netsh command to set the dns during build.
Sadly that does not help, as the error remains. Even older previously successful builds are now failing if restarted. The status page for CCI doesn’t list any ongoing issues, but something must have changed since even old builds now fail.
If we add a
RUN Invoke-WebRequest https://google.com -UseBasicParsing command to the Dockerfile, even that fails due to name resolution error.
The trimmed down Dockerfile is as follows.
LABEL description="Agent Packaging builder service" ADD some_files SHELL ["powershell", "-Command"] RUN Install-PackageProvider -Name NuGet -MinimumVersion 126.96.36.199 -Force; \ Install-Module -Name Az -Repository PSGallery -Force WORKDIR C:/workdir EXPOSE 80 8080 ENTRYPOINT ["C:\\workdir\\executable.exe"]
Error output as follows.

Are there any other ways to get DNS working during
