Microsoft Virtual Academy Install Team Foundation Server
What the Study Guide says… Install Team Foundation Server. –SQL Server version support –installing Team Foundation Server in a multi-tier or multi-machine environment –installing Team Foundation Server in a load-balanced environment –setting up a version control proxy server
Step 1 Download the TFS Install and Administration guides http://examcr.am/10Ln5E4 http://examcr.am/10Ln5E4
DEMO Microsoft Virtual Academy Kick off the SQL Install
Installation Prerequisites Operating System 64-bit Windows Server 2008# with Service Pack 2 64-bit Windows Server 2008 R2# with Service Pack 1 64-bit Windows Server 2012 # BASIC can also install on the following clients –Windows 8 (32-bit or 64-bit) –Windows 7 with Service Pack 1 (32-bit or 64-bit) # Server Core installations are not supported.
Installation Prerequisites Internet Information Server IIS is now automatically installed for you by the TFS installer. In previous versions you needed to manually install IIS prior to installing TFS.
Installation Prerequisites SQL Server TFS 2012 requires SQL Server 2008 R2 or SQL Server 2012 The Basic install option installs SQL Server 2012 Express. You can use an existing installations of SQL Server provided it meets certain requirements.
Installation Prerequisites SharePoint Products SharePoint Foundation 2010 –Install manually or as part of TFS installation –Can be on TFS Server or different server –If not installed on TFS Server, requires Extensions for Windows SharePoint Services on the server that is running SharePoint Products SharePoint Server 2010 –Standard or Enterprise editions supported –Enterprise provides access to 5 extra dashboards
TFS Installation Options TFS 2012 supports a much wider range of installation options than previous versions. TFS 2012 installation options include: –Basic –Standard Single server installation –Advanced –Application-Tier only –Upgrading TFS from an earlier release of it –Build services installation –Proxy services installation

Installing Team Foundation Server in a multi-tier or multi-machine environment Multi-tier environments can enhance the availability, scalability, and performance of your application tier. To benefit from multiple application-tier servers, you should ensure that your initial deployment of TFS includes the following characteristics: –The application tier and the configuration database are installed on separate servers. –You used a domain account for the Team Foundation Server service account (TFSSERVICE). –Network Load Balancing (NLB) is deployed.
The TFS Version Control Proxy If you have developers at a remote site who are sharing code with developers at the main site, you might save bandwidth by caching version control files at the remote location. Team Foundation Server Proxy distributes popular version control files from its cache at the remote site, rather than having multiple developers from the remote site each download the same file from the main site. Your team at the remote site works like they always have, without managing which version control files get loaded into the cache. http://examcr.am/13xEgQn
TFS Proxy System requirements You can install Team Foundation Server Proxy on a server that is running one of the following server operating systems: –64-bit versions of Windows Server 2008 with SP2 (Standard or Enterprise Edition) –64-bit versions of Windows Server 2008 R2 (Standard or Enterprise Edition) –64-bit versions of Windows Server 2012
Configuring TFS Proxy to use more disk space To change the amount of disk used by the TFS Proxy, you need to edit the PROXY.CONFIG file C:\Program Files\Microsoft Team Foundation Server 11.0\Version Control Proxy\Web Services\VersionControlProxy 75 -->

Microsoft Virtual Academy Configure the application tier
What the Study Guide says… Configure the application tier. –validating an installation –configuring SMTP for Team Foundation Server –changing the URL (friendly name) –changing the default SharePoint web application –setting up reporting (SQL Server Analysis Services)
validating an installation To review server status 1.Open the administration console for Team Foundation. 2.Under the server name, choose Application Tier. 3.Review the status of the server components of Team Foundation. To review log files 1.Open the administration console for Team Foundation. 2.Under the server name, choose Logs. 3.Find the log that you want to review in the list, and then either double-click it to open it, or highlight it and then choose Enter.
Configuring SMTP Settings for TFS Sending emails is an important capability of Team Foundation Server Emails can be configured for TFS Alerts or for sending things such as list of work items to other users You need to ensure your TFS server has been configured with details for an SMTP server You can provide details including SMTP Server, Sender, Credentials, non-standard ports and SSL.
Troubleshooting SMTP Settings Make sure any firewalls allows communication between your TFS Server and your SMTP Server Make sure your SMTP Server allows anonymous senders to send email or make sure the TFSService account has rights to send email
DEMO Microsoft Virtual Academy Configuring the SMTP settings for TFS
Changing the URL (friendly name) Part one – On the TFS Server 1.On the TFS application-tier, open the administration console for Team Foundation Server. 2.In the navigation bar, choose Application Tier, and then click Change URLs. The Change URLs window opens. 3.In Notification URL, type the URL for the new application- tier server, and then choose OK.
Changing the URL (friendly name) Part two – On the SharePoint Server 1.On server running SharePoint, open the administration console for Team Foundation Server. 2.In the navigation bar, choose Extensions for SharePoint Products, select the SharePoint Web Application and then click Modify access. The Access for Team Foundation Server window opens. 3.In URL for Team Foundation Server, type the URL for the new application-tier server, and then choose OK.
