I'm not sure if the VS2017 image has anything todo with it but I'm not able to rdp in to see why artifacts that say they exist in the folder aren't being uploaded (some of them are some of them are not in the previous builds)

    That build has already been cancelled. Let me know next time you can't login via RDP, but don't cancel a build for a while.

    Thanks will do, I figured out the issue, I was doing a dotnet pack during
    the build step (which builds and creates nuget packages).. Even though I
    was populating the artifacts folder, they weren't picked up.. I changed it
    to a be a build and do a second step to pack in after_test and it worked.
    Is this a known issue?

    Artifacts collected after after_tests, so they should be created before that.

    I was creating them during build_script step and they weren't being
    detected. I changed it to after_test and the same exact code / artifacts
    were then detected

    Hi Blake,

    RDP is fixed on VS2017 image, please feel free to connect and investigate.

    I took a quick glance on your issue and I think (just speculating) that problem maybe because Package.ps1 deletes everything what Build.ps1 packaged. I am not sure what is value of $directory_name, but this look like deleting everything in artifacts folder. So all artifact which packaged here was deleted here and then only few artifacts were packaged. Again, just speculating :)
