Excuse me while I pass the time enjoying spring weather with my gregarious and easily managed family of all American children.

Ain't no such family around my house, honey, nor is TFS in work group mode all that easy to manage. I'm sure the intrepid among you have found that there is no single management scope, security scope, or console to provision a user to the big 3 in a TFS project - SQL Reporting services, the SharePoint Project Portal, or TFS itself.

WARNING!!! YOUR MAILEAGE MAY VARY!!! DO NOT REMOVE THIS TAG UNDER PENALTY OF LAW!!!

Here is a link to a utility UNSUPPORTED BY ANY KNOWN LIFE FORM, that I have been using in my demo VPCs and SO FAR SO GOOD. BUT... DID I SAY IT AIN"T SUPPORTED?

This utilty provisions a user to TFS in workgroup mode to all all 3 server components in one fell swope! Since I am using this is in DEMO VPCs ONLY, I don't mind messin' with it. DON"T TRY THIS ON A PRODUCTION BOX. 

It's pretty cool, actually.
