Codespace stuck on initializing


As of today I’m unable to start any codespaces.
The codespace is stuck on “Initialize Codespace”.

The same Codespace ran fine a couple of days ago.

Sorry for the issue. There was a new CSP rule deployed yesterday for added security, but it missed one of the relay endpoints in the West Europe region, so access to Codespaces in West Europe from the web browser were blocked due to the CSP rule. We rolled out a service fix this morning with an updated CSP rule, so you should be able to connect now. Please let us know if you continue to see issues. Thanks!

I’m still having the issue


The Codespace finishes building and initializing.

A new error is shown when loading the Codespace:

Failed to connect to the remote extension host server (Error: Time limit reached)


@ilanco, we deployed a few fixes yesterday. Can you try creating a new Codespace and let us know if this still happens for you?

Hi @jkeech, the codespace starts and connects now.
