TFS Integration Platform – Cross Domain Migration … now what? Question & Answer 11

TFS Integration Platform – Cross Domain Migration … now what? Question & Answer 11

  • Comments 2

Question: Does the TFS Integration Platform support a cross domain migration, in other words, can I specify credentials for both domains?

Answer: Not out-of-the-box, because the current TFS Integration Platform only supports one set of credentials to be configured.

Workaround: Thanks to Grant, who has a huge treasure chest full of tricks, you should be aware of the “Manage your network passwords” feature in the Windows Server product. The feature allows you to store logon credentials for servers, which are used automatically when you connect to the configured servers. Voila, although TFS Integration Platform only allows you to configure one, the feature allows you to configure the credentials for the other domain.

Server 2008

Here are the screen dumps showing the basic steps for Windows Server 2008:

Control Panel –> User Accounts –> Manage your network passwords –> “voila”.

Server 2008 R2

I have yet to find the feature in Control Panel in R2, however, until we do run rundll32.exe keymgr.dll,KRShowKeyMgr, which will also bring up the same dialog.

Another Grant nugget … try running RoboCopy with the /MT parameter.

I love IT … every day we learn something new and encounter more features :)

  • In Server 2008 R2, it's under Control Panel\User Accounts\Credential Manager

    Or press the Start button and in the search dialog box enter the word Credential and you will find it quickly.
