It's not necessary to install Visual Studio 2012. Just copy the files in the following folder from a computer with VS2012 installed to your build server and it should work: C:\Program Files (x86)\MSBuild\Microsoft\VisualStudio\v11.0\WebApplications\

Wow! This one was hard to figure out. In the end I only got it due to luck (and trying a lot of different things). Here is what you do: Open the TFS Admin Console Click on the Applciation Tier in the left tree In the "Administration Console Users" find your user (assuming it is there) Select your user, and then select "Reapply" to the right of the box ...

Use DHCP and a proper named. That will make the network you place TFS on flexible, dynamic and future-friendly

What you need to do is setup your TFS 2010 installation. (As per the documentation). This can be a separate server (migration) or you can upgrade your TFS 2008 server. (If you upgrade the data in your Scrum For Team System V2 project(s) should be fine, but the reports will stop working along with the auto totals for bugs and PBIs.) Make sure you install ...

Based on the screenshots, it looks like you might be attempting the install on Windows 7? If so, that is not possible, TFS Proxy will only install on server OSes.

Personally I use static ip addresses on all "fixed" hosts\nodes such as servers, printers, etc.

Reinstall TFS on the App Server Go through IIS and found app pools were not set right, changed back to f/x 2.0 classic Database machine's firewall was not allowing TCP connections on the correct port to SQL Server (hence the not connecting first time, then ...

Finally got it. I found this blog post link text Turns out I had UrlScan installed and this blocked my tfs site This fixed it: you can also fix this by telling urlscan to allow dots in paths: Modify the urlscan.ini file in C:\windows\system32\inetsrv\urlscan set AllowDotInPath to 1 instead of 0 There are no . in my paths but I guess ...

By default when you try to create a new Team Project, Visual Studio sets a default path for the SharePoint site. [SharePoint Server]/sites/[TFS Project Collection Name]/[Team Project Name] What you want to do is create the site collection for the [TFS Project Collection Name] or remove it and create the Team Project Site in the sites root. Hope this ...

Account names ending in a $ are normally machine accounts, not user (even non-iterative user) accounts. It is quite possible that TFS, or something that TFS uses, assumes this and thus blocks the name. (Otherwise, be very sure you have correctly typed the password. I've ended up using copy and paste for both account creation and its use to allow a long and ...

I wonder if the error is misleading and it could be a rights issue? Ensure that the account you're running the tfsconfig command as has sysadmin rights on the SQL instance.

TFS2010 with SQL Server 2012 can only work with chek-in check-out project. In order to complete TFS Configuration wizard (1) uncheck (Reporting Service) (2) uncheck (SharePoint Service) and complete configuration wizard. Reports and Bugs and Query will not work for TFS project check - check out can be done.

First thing to check on your client that the fqdn is in the Trusted Sites zone, and the Trusted Sites zone is configured to "Automatic logon with current username and password". I would also be inclined to create an SPN for the url if it does not exist: http/tfsserver.domain.com:8080 You can show the spn's like this: setspn.exe -L ...

SP1 agents can talk to an RTM build controller just fine. You definitely want to upgrade your agents to SP1 as soon as possible (lots of good fixes), but it won't break the agent communication to upgrade the controller first.

Here is a walkthrough for upgrade to TFS2010. You can upgrade from TFS2005, no problem. http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff803410.aspx Make sure you upgrade SQL Server to SQL Server 2008 (or higher) and SharePoint to WSS 3.0 (or higher) before you start the upgrade. If you don't care about SharePoint, you can always skip it. You have to have SQL ...

I don't see why they couldn't share a SQL server. Most services like that create unique databases. I know for a fact that all of the TFS related databases (except sharepoint and reporting server) start with Tfs. So there should be no reason they can't co-exist.

There is a few things to check for. Firstly ensure in IIS that site is running and if you installed on 64Bit Server, check that the application pool is not enabling 32Bit applications to run in 64Bit instance. Also ensure that you haven't explicitly mapped your TFS site to a IP address, as this can sometimes confuse TFS completely. The fact that you ...

The URL for WebAccess to type in the browser is http://server:8080/tfs/web Assuming from your FOURTH edit, you are using it like this am I right? Just to make sure. I have installed my TFS 2010 RC on a fresh Windows 7 VM installation, with all default settings. I can access the site even from a Firefox Browser on an Ubuntu box.

In TFS2008, New Team Project Creation wizard contained an option called do not create a source control folder at this time which creates Team Project without configuring corresponding source control folder.TFS2010 doesn't contain this option anymore. I think in TFS2008, this project may have been created with above configuration.

This seems to the the best MSDN documentation. This StackOverflow question helps fill in the missing bits in Jim Lamb's blog post mentioned earlier. You might also find the result of searching for "Using The Custom Assembly Path to Deploy Custom TFS Checkin Policies", an MSDN blog post, useful. I can't post more than two links, so please search for that ...

No, you are correct. You have to uninstall RC first, then re-install the RTM. At some point during install you can point to your database and the install process will pick that up.

Make sure the site is identifying as local intranet - if not add it. Make sure in the - in the custom level for the intranet zone, make sure automatic logon only in intranet zone is checked. There are other options that might be appropriate for your environment but that should point you in the right direction
