  • TeamCity builds then copies to each web tier via a powershell script. The steps for each server are:

    • Tell HAProxy to take the server out of rotation via a POST
    • Delay to let IIS finish current requests (~5 sec)

    • Robocopy files
    • Start the website
    • Re-enable in HAProxy via another POST
