Deleting projects from Team Foundation Service
Recently I made the switch from having a local TFS deployment to using the hosted Team Foundation Service. As I had been using it back when it was TFSPreview, there were projects that had been left over, I no longer need those projects. Most of them were tests anyway. But reviewing in reviewing the portal I was not able to find anything to do it from there. I have always been a fan of command-line style administration. In doing my research I came across posts that indicated this being possible by ......

Someone opened the floodgates at Microsoft
This past week was just massive in the amount of Betas, evaluations, review guides and educational material that were released. We saw Windows 8 come out in a Customer Preview, the same for Windows 8 Server. There are plenty of things to go over and review, but that is a number of posts coming. If you have been using the TFS Preview, then you pretty much had an idea what you would be looking for in TFS coming out and of course the announcement of TFS Express was exciting. Anyhow, here are a couple ......

Getting started with the Azure Hosted TFS (aka TFSPreview): Connecting Team Explorer and Visual Studio 2010
The updates are installed, all you want to do now is get connected, authenticated and get going. The first step needed here is to open Visual Studio 2010, once opened then you need to get to Team Explorer. Once there, you will click on the Connect to Team Project button on the toolbar. If you had a connection defined to another TFS environment, this will be adding one more, so you click on Servers… On the next dialog, you will click on Add… Then you will proceed to provide the details of your Team ......

Requirements Management: From Vision to Mission to Success Presentation at SharePoint Saturday The Conference
Yesterday I presented at SPSTC, had an absolute blast, and I truly hope the attendees to my session did as well! That was my requirement! We discussed the reasons for failed requirements management, scope creep and other pitfalls. But the main goal behind this is how to enable an effective Requirements Management Engine by using SharePoint Technologies and Team Foundation Server. Keep posted as there is much more to come in this space about that thought process. In the meantime, here is the deck ......

Adventures in Lab Management Configuration: Part 3 of 3
This is long overdue. But here it is. In the previous two sections I have discussed on how I got a CMMI v4.2 to take on the same fields as v5 and therefore be able to communicate with MTM and Lab Manager. And that was quite a success. Yet when I opened up Lab Management while it was fully aware of the VMs being there, it refused to let me enroll them into an environment. It kept stating there was no suitable host to deploy the VM to, error TF259115. This was an indication something was not matching ......

Why use SharePoint Technologies with Team Foundation Server?
This is a recent question I ran into on the MSDN TFS Forums. Made me think why I use it and how to make it effective. Here is what my response to this was … “My #1 justification is the fact that when you are looking at TFS source control is not all it does. TFS has the benefit of enabling a solutions team with different roles the right level of visibility. Not everyone will use Visual Studio, for example project managers. In many cases Visual Studio can intimidate the individual. When deployed with ......

More goodness: Scrum for Team System Migration Tool from EMC
I have always liked how SfTS works, and the functionality it offers. In an earlier assessment I wrote of their toolset, the only issue I had encountered was the migration of environment that had been created and worked on for a while in the TFS 2008 world using SfTS 2.0 to the TFS 2010 SfTS 3.0. There were several elements (Work Items and such) that were not moving correctly. Anyway, that is now in the past! Congratulations to Crispin Parker and Team for the release of the Migration Tool.

Applying Service Pack 1 to Team Foundation Server 2010
Disclosure: I performed the following activities on my Windows 7 SP1 system, Visual Studio 2010 SP1 and a local Basic installation of TFS 2010. As with any deployment of a service pack into a server environment, take your recommended precautions and be aware of the changes you are putting in. With that said, make sure you backup your databases, and that you have an exit/rollback strategy in the event of an unexpected situation. Team Foundation Server 2010 Service Pack 1 corresponds to KB2182621. ......

Adventures in Lab Management Configuration: Part 2 of 3
The first post was the high level overview. Now it is time for the details on what was done to the existing CMMI Project based on CMMI v 4.2. The first step was to go into Visual Studio, then from the Team Project Collection Settings and then to the Process Template Manager. Once there, it was a matter of selecting the appropriate template (MSF for CMMI Process Improvement v5.0) and download to a point I could reference later (for example C:\Templates). Then on to using the steps from the guidance ......

Adventures in Lab Management Configuration: CMMI Edition Part 1 of 3
I remember at one point someone telling me how close Migrate was to Migraine.

Now, the process to migrate the TFS Infrastructure is one thing, migrating the Process Template is a different deal, not hard … just involved. Followed a combination of steps that came from a blog post as the main guidance and then MSDN ......

The areas covered through the tool include: Backup to a Network Backup Path, retention configuration. Under Advanced Options, the extension to be used ......

TFS 2008 to TFS 2010 moves and some issues
There have been many things going on this year around TFS. Most of them had to do with migrations (I don’t call them upgrades for the most part since it involved new hardware and such). Many were implementations using the Conchango SfTS template (now EMC). But there were others that were CMMI or Agile 4.0. Everything would move just fine, no issues. That was until you attempted to run Test Case Management or run the last configuration steps for Lab Management. There is an error that states a project ......

TFS and the Cloud, and a shameless plug.
Recently I have been reading about how some companies offer services that would provide you with Team Foundation Server capabilities in the cloud. When we talk about cloud (and it seems everybody is doing it), we need to differentiate between the services running and also the type of service we (as a company or individual) will be running. We can talk about 2 potential possibilities for TFS that would be effective, but each is different in its own way: SaaS: Software as a service, ideal scenario ......

I will go into the details of the tasks that I went through, but first I want to explain why I define it as a migration and not an upgrade. When this environment was setup, based on support and limitations for TFS 2008, we used a 32 bit platform for the TFS Application Tier and Build Servers.
