  • Blog Post: Pack-Man

    In case you haven't heard, Visual Studio 2008 Service Pack 1 is available! As you prepare to install the TFS 2008 SP1 , I'd like to strongly recommend that you first run the BPA tool . From the Visual Studio Team System forums , I've seen two folks already have installation failures because their...
  • Blog Post: Ventriloquism: TFS Style

    Quite a long time back, Buck posted about how to recover from the situation where one TFS machine is created as a clone from another. This can lead to clients still showing the project list for one server when the connect to the second. Based on a recent Visual Studio Team System forums question (they...
  • Blog Post: Edifice Reqs II: The SQL

    Back in March, I posted about the requirements for TFS installation. I promised to post about "SQL Server and it's Various Components", but have been tied up with the Visual Studio 2008 SP1 like a Thanksgiving turkey (only not quite as delicious). In any case, I'm back from outer space. I just blogged...
  • Blog Post: My service is packed, I'm ready to go

    ...installing here, upgrade once more (Adapted from "Leaving on a Jet Plane") A post on the Visual Studio Team System forums reminded me of one very important tidbit of Visual Studio patching. The integration of Team Foundation Server with Visual Studio enables all sorts of marvelous functionality...
  • Blog Post: Edifice Reqs

    I'd like to tip my hat to the father of a guy I worked with as a camp counselor one summer long ago for the post title. He owned a demolition company called " Edifice Wrecks ". In our last episode , I described the OSes that the various Team Foundation features support. This time, I'd like to cover...
  • Blog Post: Pre[ranasaurus] Reqs: The OSic Era

    I've seen a bunch of questions over time about what it takes to get Team Foundation Server (TFS) components installed. Because it varies by component, the answer is usually rather lengthy and takes long enough to fully describe that eyes start glazing over, heads start nodding, and the utility of the...
  • Blog Post: Supercalifragilisticexpialidociou-dition

    With Team Foundation 2008 generally available, I've seen a bit of confusion over the various Editions offered. Of course, there's still a bit of confusion over how " Workgroup Edition " relates to workgroup networks, but there's also some missing clarity around the upgrade paths, the restrictions, etc...

  • Blog Post: What's up, Doc?

    This week, we have one of our User Education ("UE") folks out visiting the North Carolina office. We're talking about all manner of interesting documentation topics, including what we want to work on with respect to documentation for future versions. After spending a bit of time scratching my head and...
  • Blog Post: No 'I' in 'Team'

    I've had this brewing in my head for awhile now and wanted to share it with you, my fellow netizens. This stems in part from a philosophy course I took back during my undergraduate days called "Freedom and Responsibility". The basic question in the course was "do we have free will and, even if we...

  • Blog Post: Truth in advertizing

    I'm an avid fan of Battlestar Galactica, as is only appropriate for a former Trekkie who only saw only the first two Matrix movies and was not impressed by the second. Therefore, when I saw the advertisement Visual Studio 2005 had on the SciFi web site for the show, I was definitely drinking the kool...
  • Blog Post: [insert holiday name] came early this year!

Not only are there numerous fixes and incremental improvements, but there are even some new features. More details are available on the MSDN site . Having...
  • Blog Post: Virtual Green is made of People!

    So you want to run Team Foundation Server , but don't have the physical machine resources. You think- 'hey, isn't Virtual Server a free download now?' You're right! And what's best, TFS works just fine in a Virtual Server. Having done quite a bit of testing against servers set up in virtual machines...
  • Blog Post: New and Improved

    I always wondered about that phrase- "New and Improved". Either it's 'new', which means it never existed before, or it's 'improved' which means that it's better than the previous version(s) and, therefore, existed before. Finally I can stop wondering because I think I've come up with a situation where...

    I'm sure many of you have read Eric Sink 's " Four Questions ". If you haven't though, I highly recommend it. [Thanks due to Martin Woodward for linking to the post!] Now that we've shipped version one of Team Foundation Server, we've started getting a lot more feedback. It's great to see that so...
