I lost my comment when they voted this question down.

comment What server operating system should I use for a virtual TFS build server?
What will your developers build? Win8 apps require the build server to be installed on Win8 machine. [This topic][1] mentions this requirement with a link to more information. Otherwise, I would echo what Giulio said.

comment TFS 2012 Backups w/DPM
Run SQL Server as Network Service. Network Service allows it to authenticate on a different machine. Local System is for local use only. I don't know what happened to the message above. It must have been spell corrected somehow, but I can't remember what I was trying to say.

What happens if you use Network Service is on a dozen? You should be able to use it without issue.

comment Migrating from TFS 2010 to TFS 2012
Did you move to a new server? If so, you may have to update the URL manually. Look at the bottom of this page. elhajj.wordpress.com/run-the-tfs-upgrade-wizard-rtm

comment Re configure TFS 2012 reporting services
You only need to add client tools to tfs to get it to work. No need to move analysis server onto tfs. It should run just fine by adding client tools. Good luck.

What is the error? What is the problem? Is this unexpected? It sounds like it is working as it should.

comment Restore TFS Website in IIS Manager
Sorry, AT is application tier, essentially all the guts of TFS (IIS sites, windows services, etc) except for the data. Read the section in the linked topic on disaster recovery. Good luck!

What is the problem with a live ID? Seems like a non-issue, but maybe I'm missing something? Its free, easy to get, can use most any email address???

comment TFS Bulk edit using Excel
Does it happen if you use a different client machine to do the bulk edit? What version of Excel? Use MS update to update Excel.

comment Cannot create TFS backup plan, permission issues in a non-domain setup
Did you try to map a drive from SCOTTY to MRSPOCK? Possibly try setting up homegroups on SCOTTY and adding MRSPOCK\administrator to the home group? This is a networking issue, not really an issue with the tool itself. It's complicated by the fact that I can't easily setup a similar environment here on the domain at work. :( Good luck!

Maybe make an account on both computers with the same name and password. Use it in the tool as the task account for the backup tool and try again.

comment Configure reporting in TFS 2010
No, the account is the report reader account. You need to give a domain account the log on locally permission. During tfs install you are prompted for this account. Not sure how its handled during "add reports" but you should make sure the account you used has the permissions it needs.

comment Migrate Team Foundation Server 2010 to new hardware
I wouldn't do this becaues it leaves the configuration database on a client PC, probably on an installation of SQLExpress, while the rest of the data presumably moves to the full SQL Server product on the server. Much better to just move all the data and use TFSConfig PrepSQL.

This seems like the best answer.
