Team Foundation Server


After following the instructions carefully contained in TFSInstall-v60208.chm I have been able to install the Release Candidate sucessfully twice now (along with 2 other failed attempts).  One install is attached to a domain and the other is a workgroup install — remember you can’t install TFS on a domain controller anymore. 
 
The install is much better than it was previously but there are still alot of small things that can make your installation fail, just ask anyone whose tried to install it.
 
Using Virtual Server 2005 made the installation easy and gave me the ability to backup easily as I went through each step of the process.  Rolling back to a previous snapshot of the system is as simple as copying the .vhd and .vmc files back to the server. 
 
I installed one of the the Release Candidates of Team Foundation Server using Virtual Server 2005 R2 x64 Edition with 1 GB of RAM for the VM and have been quite happy with its performance — this version replaced the Beta 2 version we have been running since July ’05.
