I'm a developer and got the order to install a Team Foundation Server (2017) on a Windows 2012 Server (no RC) in our Network. All Clients of the network authenticates over a Active Directory, so it would make sense to stick to the same mechanism with TFS. (I know that it would work with workgroups but i would rather use what's in place...)
Honestly, i'm a bit scared to interrupt our Active Directory which would have direct impact on our network.
I have read the docs:
but can't find more specific info's.
My Questions are:
Does the TFS writes Entries into the Active Directory?
Is there something i would have to pay attention while installing the TFS regarding to the AD?
Can something go wrong with the AD? Are there scenerios in which i would destroy/interrupt the AD?
