In order to troubleshoot and resolve such issues, please check the following:

  1. First check the release management server service and deployment agent service, and try to restart them.
  2. Then use the release management server as deployment agent and see if things working fine.
  3. If you are using virtual machine as deployment agent, please change that.
  4. Also ensure you are able to browse http://<rmserver>:1000/releasemanagement from IE, if it throws authentication error of ask for the credential, then it may be an issue with either IE proxy or group policy or port 1000 block issue from agent.

  1. "3. If you are using virtual machine as deployment agent, please change that."

    Release Management Deployment agent cannot be used in a Virtual Machine????  That seems like a rather large limitation.

  2. Thomas Steiner says:

    Also check whether a shadow-account is properly set up.

    I had the same problem and this was the solution
