When running Bitbucket Server on a Windows Server instance that's sitting on top of XenServer after pushing changes to a new repository, Bitbucket Server does not update the "Empty Repository" landing page for the repository. A restart of Bitbucket Server may temporarily fix this.

Rackspace Windows servers run on top of Xen and are affected by this.

This is caused by a bug between msysgit and XenServer. A discussion of this can be found at


Uninstalling XenServer Tools may allow msysgit to function properly. Please use caution as uninstalling XenServer Tools could leave your instance inaccessible or have serious performance impacts.

If you're using a server hosted by Rackspace, do not uninstall XenServer Tools.


This bug is being tracked on the msysgit issue tracker at

Unfortunately, until this bug is fixed the resolution is to switch to using Linux as it is not affected by this bug.
