So I have successfully cloned my existing TFS 2010 production environment onto new hardware (and software) and it is running TFS 2013. Everything appears to be working just fine.
I notice however that when I run the TFS 2013 Best Practices Analyzer it is trying to perform a health check on my old application tier as well as my new one.
The message is:
The application tier was not scanned The application tier "old_apptier_server" has not connected to Team Foundation Server during the past 72 hours.
Before running any TFS configuration on any of the restored databases I ran ChangeServerId and RemapDBs. When I look in the admin console on the new and old tiers I see no mention of the other tier and so they appear to be isolated except for this.
Why would the Best Practices Analyzer be trying to analyze my old app tier and how can I fix it?
I notice a checkbox in the Application Tier node of the TFS admin console that reads:
Filter out machines that have not connected in more than 3 days
If I uncheck it then my TFS 2010 server shows up so I am guessing that this is why BPA picks it up. Is this normal? Is it problematic? How can I remove the old entry? I cannot seemto find too much info on this checkbox.
