As I'm new to Team Foundation Server, this may seem a bit of a daft question but I have been tasked with installing TFS2010.

What I want to know is, do I have to have a full version of MOSS 2007 installed to build a project dashboard for TFS or can I get away with just using WSS 3.0 that comes with TFS?

Having looked through the docs for TFS, I get the idea that I have to have a full Sharepoint installation somewhere. Though I'd like this to be clarified if possible.

Thanks in advance.


Firstly, you can use TFS2010 without SharePoint.

According to the TFS2010 Install Guide, WSS3/MOSS2007 is supported, in fact that is what the guide lists (MOSS2010 is not listed).

  • Oh I know I can use it without, but for the dashboards with the graphs such as blogs.msdn.com/blogfiles/aaronbjork/WindowsLiveWriter/…, do I definately need to have MOSS installed? – LiamGu Jun 3 '10 at 9:53
  • @Liam: Those dashboards make use of SharePoint and SQL Server Analysis/Reporting. Whether WSS is sufficient is unclear (I would think it would be in most cases, but you may have to try it yourself if you cannot find a definite answer). – Richard Jun 4 '10 at 8:47
