Creating Sharepoint and Reporting sites after the fact

In TFS 2010, we made integration of TFS with Sharepoint and SQL Reporting Services optional.  You can choose not to install them, you can choose not to create sites even if they are installed, etc.  As part of this, you can also configure your TFS server to point at centralized Sharepoint and reporting infrastructure, etc.  ...

Upgrading a TFS 2008 Server from SQL 2005 to SQL 2008

Someone forwarded me a blog post with a pretty thorough recounting of their experiences upgrading SQL in a TFS install.  This is the kind of thing we have worked very hard to make better in 2010.  While the SQL and Sharepoint parts of such config changes still have their challenges (and are getting better in their own right), we...

TFS 2010 RC Power Tools

After answering the first half dozen or so questions I got about Power Tool availability (within hours of announcing the RC on Monday :)), I kind of stopped.  The truth is that we had not planned on producing RC compatible Power Tools.  We did them for Beta 2 and are hard at work on finishing them off for RTM.  However, the ...
