Today I decided that I was going to attempt an install of the Team Foundation server beta 3 refresh. I decided, as always. to start with a fresh VPC image running Windows 2003 server. I followed the instal guide for a single server deployment. The guide really was good for me and I followed it word for word hoping that if I did so all would go well. I also decided that I was going to install the RTM of SQL Developer Edition instead of the Enterprise or Standard. All went well until I ran the Team ...
Marcel de Vries has a great post on fixing an (apparently common) problem with Visual Studio Team Foundation Server and Windows SharePoint Services SP2. I recently had this problem, and he rescued me from much frustration. Check it out here: http://blogs.infosupport.co... ...
The steps required to backup the Team Foundation Server consists of: Shutting down the TFS Server Scheduler. Shutting down IIS on the Team Server. Backup the Team Foundation tier attachment folders (located at c:\VSTS\WorkItemTracking\At... Backup the Team Foundation databases. Backup the Team Portal Sites. Restart IIS. Restart the TFS Server Scheduler. So needless to say, it’s not a trivial process and should be coordinated when developers are not hitting the server. ...
The hell of custom configuration sections Configuration is changed somewhat, none of our custom configuration section code worked anymore. I’m not sure if this one was for the better. Implementing custom sections in configuration files have got to be one of the most painful experiences I have had coding since Method ~ of ~ failed in the old DCOM days. How come it takes 200 lines of code to read 20 lines of configuration in an xml file? Thanks to Reflector from Lutz Roeder I disassembled the ...
Ok like promised here are a few thing to do in order to successfully create a Single Server install of Team Foundation Server B3. Follow the documentation available on the DVD and also available here it has been greatly updated since the last release and has some good information. What I used to do was to create a Virtual Machine with Windows 2003 Server SP1 (apply Windows Update) and then promote to a DC. Install IIS, then install SQL Server 2005, Windows Sharepoint Services and Finally the ATDT ...
Well this is not really a scoop since it's been blogged about a lot in the last 24 hours by Sam Gentile here Jeff Beehler here and Eric Lee here... but since it's my first post on Geekswithblogs I wanted to let everyone know what my interests where. I love development in .NET. The platform is so empowering its incredible the things you can do with it. .NET 2.0 will be even better and cooler. I have the privilege to be able to work with the Team System product group as part of my daily job, and I ...
Hope by now everyone is aware of the next major release of Microsoft, the Visual Studio 2005 (They have eliminated the term .NET which was there in prior versions i.e Visual Studio .NET 2003, Visual Studio .NET 2002). The official release date is November 7, 2005 launch of Visual Studio 2005, one of the most significant releases in the history of the Developer Division. Visual Studio 2005 leverages on the next version of .NET Framework - 2.0. There has been a lot of Beta Releases, CTPs from which ...
The ServerSide.NET has a hysterical cartoon about the Microsoft Team Foundation Server pricing structure. See: http://www.theserverside.ne... It's ironic that the customers that select the Universal Subscription typically do so because they are willing to pay good money to not have to make a choice because they want the flexibility to change and evolve with their customer and project needs. I don't count the customers that have deep pockets and buy the universal ...
For those of us in the developer community who have a scrum style “Architect/Developer/... type of job description, we can upgrade our universal subscriptions to the new Team Foundation Server SUITE which will include all the tool sets. All this can be yours for an estimated.... <GASP> $11,000 bucks! I won't quote my source in an online blog, but I received the estimate from a reliable source. Apparently only large corporations will have developers that own the entire suite ...
Yep, it looks official (I’m using that very gently). Visual Studio Team Foundation Server, a key component of the new Visual Studio 2005 development tools suite to be released on November 7th 2005 will not make the RTM cut. According to this article in eWeek Visual Studio Team Foundation Server will be released as Beta 3 at the November 7th Visual Studio 2005 launch and will not reach RTM status as originally anticipated. My opinion… if you need Beta 3, take it!! It is far better in ...
Reading Rob Caron’s blog it seems that Visual Studio 2005 and Team Foundation Server aren’t now going to RTM (‘Release To Manufacture’) at the same time. Team Foundation Server will in fact have another Beta version, which will be its third. Now I am disappointed that Team Foundation Server will be later than VS2005 but rather late than arrive with bugs, so IMHO it is the correct thing to do. I don’t believe you can be puerile and say if you quote a date you should stick ...
Team Services Foundation Server (TFS) Beta 2 depends upon AD/AM (Active Directory / Application Mode). According to the documentation, ADAM runs on domain controllers running operating systems in the Microsoft Windows Server 2003 family (it also apparently runs on Windows 2000; however, I have no personal experience with that configuration). Because Microsoft Windows Server 2003 Web Edition cannot be a domain controller, Team Foundation Server cannot run on Windows 2003 Web Edition. I had to find ...
Keynote- Mr. Ballmer gets way more out of a slide than I do. Primary theme is connectivity, as it has been since Windows 95. The document handler in Longhorn looks awesome. After using a nifty search capability to reduce the number of target docs, they zoom in and all the docs began to wysiwyg render - graphics and all. As I said, awesome. To stress security, they showed us several times that a corporation can wipe a lost PDA or even set it to wipe itself after a defined number of login failures. ...

Today I received my copy of Visual Studio Team Suite Beta Experience Kit which I ordered from MSDN Visual Studio Beta Experience website a week ago. Its a nice collection of set of 4 DVD's. One is Visual Studio 2005 Beta 2, another is SQL Server 2005 Developer Edition Community Technology Preview, one of Visual Studio 2005 Team Foundation Server and my favourite WeFly247.NET. I had installed VS Beta 2 but still have to check SQL Server 2005 and VS 2005 Team Foundation Server. Just going to install ...
