Fisheye will fail to reindex Mercurial repository with the message "Repository index failed due to error" or "Unable to pull from repository" in the UI.

The following appears in the atlassian-fisheye-<date>.log:

2012-02-13 20:44:19,721 DEBUG [IncrementalPinger1 catch21] LoggingProcessMonitor-onAfterFinished - Finished process: hg --config ui.verbose=false pull  took 3135ms
2012-02-13 20:44:19,722 INFO  [IncrementalPinger1 catch21] LoggingProcessMonitor-onAfterFinished - Exception executing command "hg --config ui.verbose=false pull " Non-zero exit code: 1
com.atlassian.utils.process.ProcessException: Non-zero exit code: 1


Mercurial 2.1 has a bug that makes it incompatible with Fisheye.


Install Mercurial 2.1.1 or later

Remember to restart Fisheye after upgrading Mercurial
