  • Blog Post: TFS 2008 and Enhanced Availability

    Some of you may be familiar with the "AT Warm Standby" feature that was included with TFS 2005 (aka Whidbey). This feature is also available in TFS 2008 (aka Orcas) but with some slight changes. Our guidance to people using this feature is to install/configure SharePoint and Reporting Services off of...
  • Blog Post: TFS Orcas Setup

    Setup. Setup. Setup. That's what I've been focused on for quite some time, and we're pretty excited about the improvements we've made for Orcas (aka Tfs 2008). I could barely pull myself away to play Halo 3 last night! :) TFS has some challenges in this area - when you build on top of so many other technologies...
  • Blog Post: Team Foundation Server and Longhorn Server Beta3 (aka Windows Server 2008 Beta 3)

  • Blog Post: We have added his biological and technological distinctiveness to our own.

    Becoming a full-time employee of Microsoft (or "MSFTie") is often jokingly referred to as " joining the collective " in public and even within our cybernetic halls. I mentioned awhile back that we'd gotten some additional team-members on the Setup/Admin/Ops QA team, and (as James recently enlightened...
  • Blog Post: What he said...

    Sudhir has been blogging up a storm lately. He has a series of posts describing what we've done to improve setup for Orcas, and covers some likely "Whidbey to Orcas" migration scenarios. For example, if you have Whidbey with a local SharePoint 2 installation, you might wonder how to upgrade to Orcas...
  • Blog Post: TFS - Enhanced support for Windows SharePoint Services

    We're working on improving our SharePoint integration for the Orcas release of TFS, as you may have heard/read by now.
