Weird issue - TFS build succeeds, no deployment

We have several (10+) projects that build/deploy fine in our environment (we use TFS/TFS Build which then leverages MSBuild arguments to publish the package). A new one was created by the dev team and while it builds fine, it doesn't seem to even try the deployment (no errors on the build server, no errors on the Octopus server).

As far as I can tell the MSBuild Arguments line matches other build definitions that work fine. Was just looking for a 2nd/3rd/4th opinion.

    Hi Blake, thanks for reaching out.

    I'll need to get some additional information to narrow down the cause of the issue.

    How are you publishing to Octopus? Are you using MSBuild with Octopack to push the package directly to Octopus? Or are you pushing the package to Octopus using another step in the TFS build process?

    Can you also please supply the complete command that you are running to execute the build, and the TFS build logs?
