There isn't a lot of documentation out there that covers deploying Team Foundation Server across two non-trusted domains. This is not to say that TFS simply won't work this, but that there is simply not a lot of deployment documentation to support this scenario. There is an MSDN forum post (http://forums.microsoft.com/MSDN/ShowPost.aspx?PostID=177844&SiteID=1) that discusses it, but no formal guidance.
The below is a diagram outlines a deployment configuration that should support this scenario. Again, it's not formal documentation, but rather a visualization of a workable scenario.
The full-size image is attached to this post.
Login to your MSDN Subscribers area. Go to downloads. Expand the tree to:Developer Tools->Visual Studio 2005->English->Visual Studio 2005 Team Foundation Server Workgroup Edition (English)
Now, to keep the download size somewhat manageable, you will also need to download SQL Server 2005 Standard Edition (also on MSDN). The actual media for TFS should include this install.
Yep, we actually do consider database developers first-class citizens in the SDLC!
We've launched the SoCal Team System Community site (http://www.SoCalTeamSystem.com/). Our goal is to provide a more centralized area for Team System-related information that's specific to Southern California.
In the interest of time, the initial site leverages Office Live Beta (http://officelive.microsoft.com/). We are planning to create a custom site to eventually replace it (with much more content, discussion forums, etc); but for now, you can still find general Team System information, SoCal events, and information about MS office locations.
The Team Foundation Server bits which you can download from MSDN (find it here) represent the full product - complete functionality and connectivity. The only difference is that there is a evaluation time limit of 180-days. Once you obtain your product key, you can simply enter your product key and remove the time limit.
ogin to your MSDN Subscribers area. Go to downloads. Expand the tree to:Developer Tools->Visual Studio 2005->English->Visual Studio 2005 Team Foundation Server Trial Edition (English)
If you're looking for a quick way to "sandbox" Team System and Team Foundation Server, you can download a fully-configured VPC image from the MSDN Subscribers download area.
Login to your MSDN Subscribers area. Go to downloads. Expand the tree to:Developer Tools->Visual Studio 2005->English->Visual Studio 2005 Team Suite Trial Edition (For Evaluation Only) Get the downloads for: Visual Studio 2005 Team System VPC – Part 1 of 2 (English) Visual Studio 2005 Team System VPC – Part 2 of 2 (English)
That will give you a full Virtual PC image with TFS already installed and configured, and the Team Suite edition of Team System installed.
