I am pleased to announce that TFS Administration Tool 2.0 has been released. You can download it from the TFS Administration Tool project website. The team is very excited to have this release available to the public as it contains many new features. You can read about the new features in my earlier blogs post here and here.
Note: TFS Administration Tool 2.0 is built on top of the Team Foundation Server 2008 client object model. Before installing TFS Administration Tool 2.0 please make sure that you have Team Explorer 2008 SP1 and the Forward Compatibility update installed.
Please download TFS Administration Tool 2.0 and let us know what you think about it. In case you run into any bugs or you would like to see a new feature in the next release please make sure you file a work item on the project web site. Before installing TFS Administration Tool 2.0 please make sure that you have removed the previous versions of the tool from your machine.

What’s next for the TFS Administration Tool?
Since the release of Visual Studio 2010 and Team Foundation Server 2010, many users have contacted the team asking for a version of TFS Administration Tool which is built on top of the Team Foundation Server 2010 object model. We have looked into this and it looks like is should be fairly easy to recompile the the tool to use the Team Foundation Server 2010 object model. We are hoping to release an updated version of the TFS Administration Tool within a month. Please keep an eye on the project web site for updates on the next release.
We are using TFS2008 but already have VS2010 clients accessing it. We cannot install the TFS Admin Tool 2.0 because it says it requires the Forward Compatibility Update... however it shouldn't as the text above says it is built against the TFS2008 object model, which is what our server is running.
When will the TFS admin tool based on the TFS2010 object model be ready?
Any documentation for this?
I am currently testing the new version of the TFS Administration Tool which uses the Team Foundation Server 2010 object model. I hope that I will be able to complete the test in the next couple of weeks and post it on the project web site.
@Patrick: What type of documentation are you looking for?
User documentation would be useful - I still haven't managed to do anything with it yet, most probably because I can't get it configured correctly.
@Patrick: Please feel free to drop me an email at email@example.com with your questions regarding the tool.
