I'm working on some test planning for the next release of Team Foundation Server. One area I'm focused on is testing various possible configurations of TFS. Here are a few of the configurations we regularly test:
There are about two dozen variables that define a configuration, and there are nearly a hundred possible values spread across those variables. Since testing each of the thousands of combinations is impractical, we identify a subset of configurations using customer data, bug trends, code coverage, and other analysis, and test those (our configuration Matrix for Orcas ranged from 25-31 different configurations).
I'd like to collect more of that 'customer data' I just mentioned. By telling us what your actual TFS configuration looks like, we can make sure that the configurations we test map to ones actually deployed 'in the wild'.
To that end, I've created a short survey you can fill out to describe your TFS deployment. It's short (10 questions), you shouldn't need to provide any sensitive data, and it will help ensure that your current and future deployment strategy is one we understand and support. If you own or manage multiple TFS deployments, feel free to fill out the survey once for each.
So please, take 5 minutes and tell us about your TFS.
