Report errors with TFS 2008 and SSRS 2008


There are issues affecting several built-in reports for TFS 2008 if the TFS Data Tier is using SQL Server 2008.

Microsoft is currently working to provide a full, self-installing update package for these reports that will function properly with SQL Server Reporting Services 2008.  In the meantime however, fixed copies of these reports are available.  Please contact Microsoft support and they will be glad to provide you with updated reports.  Microsoft has also published a KB about this issue:
