I want to move our TFS database and application to a newer server. Both the TFS application and the SQL instance reside on the old server. The new server will be set up similarly but with updated software.
A few notes about the servers...
- Windows 2008R2
- Team Foundation Server 2013 12.0.21005.1 (Tfs2013.RTM)
- SQL Server 2012
- Windows 2016
- SQL Server 2017
I get this message when I attempt to install TFS 2013 on the new server and use the existing SQL Server 2017:
What is the best way to proceed? I have no problems with bringing forward the TFS to a more current version but how do I get the current database for TFS over to the new server? Do I upgrade the current server or is there a way to import the backup of the old server in a newer version of TFS.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
