Over the past couple of years I’ve been impressed by a series of small improvements to the Task Manager which have made it pretty great to use.
I recently noticed that you if you right click the column titles in the Processes tab and tick all the boxes, you rarely have to venture to the Details tab. (The most valuable column to add, in my opinion, is Command line.)
The Processes tab also attempts to lump items into a few categories: Apps, Background processes, Windows processes.
This is the error that I see in the Azure Functions portal:
Exception: Fail to install function app dependencies.
Restarting the app may resolve the error.
Error: 'A connection attempt failed because the
connected party did not properly respond after a period
of time, or established connection failed because
connected host has failed to respond A connection attempt
failed because the connected party did not properly respond
after a period of time, or established connection failed
because connected host has failed to respond'
And I was able to fix my Function by commenting out the Az line in my local project’s requirements.psd1 and pushing the changes to Azure:
# This file enables modules to be automatically managed by the Functions service.
# Only the Azure Az module is supported in preview.
# See https://aka.ms/functionsmanageddependency for additional information.
#'Az' = '1.*'
Needless to say, PowerShell Azure Functions is in Public Preview, and it’s expected that things will sometimes not work.
But I expect dependencies on PowerShell Gallery in the wider ecosystem will get a lot of attention after today!
