Windows Azure Instance - Remote Access Problems

La orice instanta din Windows Azure, un user se poate conecta remote ca si pe orice alta masina. Acesta are acces la orice fel de resurse din sistemul de operate incepand de la task manager la event logs sau la Windows Services.
Pentru a ne putea conecta remote la instanta unui rol este nevoie ca de portalul Windows Azure sa selectam instanta la care vrem sa ne conectam, iar apoi din meniul de sus sa apasam butonul "Connect". Browser-ul o sa faca download la un fisier cu extensia .rdp, care se foloseste pentru conextiune remote. Odata rulat acest fisier, totul o sa decurga normal, o sa fie nevoie sa introduceti credentialele si gata, sunteti conectat remote in Cloud.
Pana aici nu o sa aveti nici o problema, totul o sa mearga ca uns. Insa in unele cazuri o sa va treziti ca instanta pe care o aveti nu poate sa fie gasita, orice ati face. Cand incercati sa dati conect, aplicatia sta cateva secunde iar apoi primiti o eroare de genul:
The specified user name does not exist. Verify the username and try logging in again. If the problem continues, contact your system administrator or technical support.
Desi rolul functioneaza, la fel si instantele pe care le aveti, totul este in regula. Acest lucru apare uneori dupa 2-3 zice ce ati folosit fara problema remote conenction-ul pe cloud. O solutie simpla pe care am gasito la aceasta problema este sa deschideti cu un editor text fisierul .rdp si sa inlocuiti friendly name-ul (DNS name) pe care il aveti pe prima linie cu IP-ul instantei.
Before:
full address:s: myApp.cloudApp.net
After:
full address:s: 123.123.123.123
Am observat ca acest lucru se intampla dupa ce se schimba administratorul la o subscriptie (acest lucru se poate face doar la cerere si este facut direct de cei de la Windows Azure support) sau se fac modificari complexe.
Sper ca acuma functioneaza si la voi :-).

How to check in AngularJS if a service was register or not

There are cases when you need to check in a service or a controller was register in AngularJS.
For example a valid use case is when you have the same implementation running on multiple application. In this case, you may want to intercept the HTTP provider and add a custom step there. This step don’t needs to run on all the application, only in the one where the service exist and register.
A solution for this case would be to have a flag in the configuration that specify this. In the core you would have an IF that would check the value of this flag.
Another solution is to check if a specific service was register in AngularJS or not. If the service was register that you would execute your own logic.
To check if a service was register or not in AngularJS container you need to call the ‘has’ method of ‘inhector’. It will return TRUE if the service was register.
if ($injector.has('httpInterceptorService')) { $httpProvider.interceptors.push('httpInterceptorService&#…

ADO.NET provider with invariant name 'System.Data.SqlClient' could not be loaded

Today blog post will be started with the following error when running DB tests on the CI machine:
threw exception: System.InvalidOperationException: The Entity Framework provider type 'System.Data.Entity.SqlServer.SqlProviderServices, EntityFramework.SqlServer' registered in the application config file for the ADO.NET provider with invariant name 'System.Data.SqlClient' could not be loaded. Make sure that the assembly-qualified name is used and that the assembly is available to the running application. See http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=260882 for more information. at System.Data.Entity.Infrastructure.DependencyResolution.ProviderServicesFactory.GetInstance(String providerTypeName, String providerInvariantName) This error happened only on the Continuous Integration machine. On the devs machines, everything has fine. The classic problem – on my machine it’s working. The CI has the following configuration:

Run native .NET application in Docker (.NET Framework 4.6.2)

Scope
The main scope of this post is to see how we can run a legacy application written in .NET Framework in Docker.

Context
First of all, let’s define what is a legacy application in our context. By a legacy application we understand an application that runs .NET Framework 3.5 or higher in a production environment where we don’t have any more the people or documentation that would help us to understand what is happening behind the scene.
In this scenarios, you might want to migrate the current solution from a standard environment to Docker. There are many advantages for such a migration, like:

Continuous DeploymentTestingIsolationSecurity at container levelVersioning ControlEnvironment Standardization
Until now, we didn’t had the possibility to run a .NET application in Docker. With .NET Core, there was support for .NET Core in Docker, but migration from a full .NET framework to .NET Core can be costly and even impossible. Not only because of lack of features, but also because once you…
