I was having performance issues with table storage and upgraded to the latest library/sdk. Everything works fine locally and I can run on the emulator. However, when I try to deploy to my Azure Cloud Service I get the following error:
Details: Recovering role... Unhandled Exception: Could not load file or assembly 'Microsoft.Azure.DocumentDB.Core, Version=18.104.22.168, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35' or one of its dependencies. The located assembly's manifest definition does not match the assembly reference. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80131040)
The web role just recycles constantly with this error. The actual dll version is 22.214.171.124. Things I have tried:
<dependentAssembly> <assemblyIdentity name="Microsoft.Azure.DocumentDB.Core" publicKeyToken="31bf3856ad364e35" culture="neutral" /> <bindingRedirect oldVersion="0.0.0.0-126.96.36.199" newVersion="188.8.131.52" /> </dependentAssembly>
The publish is done via 'publish' in Visual Studio 2019 on the Cloud Service (csdef).
Could anyone suggest what else I can try to deploy this cloud service?
Eventually found a way round this. So, when run locally a file WebRoleName.dll.config is produced alongside the web.config. This file is not deployed. The content is an exact copy of the web.config file. All its settings are ignored apart from the redirects. The redirects are used, seemingly, just while the web role is being started up. So, I added the file based on my local configuration (so completely the wrong database settings, etc.) to the root of my Web Role project and set it to Content - Copy Always.
Now everything runs OK - obviously it would be better if this generated file was deployed by the Visual Studio Azure publish automatically.
