Have you ever wondered how many files are in your server? Or workspaces? Have you wanted to stop a request that was being processed? Using the administration web service and matching web page for TFS Source Control, you can do exactly that.
A couple of months ago, Jeff Lucovsky wrote about filing watson reports for Team Foundation. When you log in as an administrator on the application tier for TFS, you may be greeted with a dialog asking if you would like to report errors to Microsoft.
Tonight I stumbled across Jeff Beehler’s new blog. So far he’s written about our effort to upgrade our dogfood system to new code (we’ve been using a system based on the beta 2 release), which we’ll release as a mid-July CTP.
In this forum thread, http://forums.microsoft.com/msdn/ShowPost.aspx?PostID=18817, a question was asked about using baseless merge with converted VSS shared folders.
[UPDATE Aug. 22, 2006] The GUI will not show the relatives of baseless merges, only explicit branch relationships.
[UPDATE Feb. 6, 2006] I’m happy to say that baseless merges DO record history in the RC and RTM releases of TFS.
It’s a question that’s come up a lot lately. The June CTP of SQL 2005 will not work as the SQL backend for the current public releases of Team Foundation. There have been changes in SQL 2005 that require changes in TFS for it to work.
The June CTP of VS 2005 includes Team Foundation Server. However, this is not the June CTP discussed in the Team Foundation MSDN forums and elsewhere. That CTP is now scheduled for July (it was the last week of June, so it didn’t change much).
In the Team Foundation forum a question was asked regarding CVS compared to Team Foundation Version Control. Here’s what I wrote.
Of course, Team Foundation is much more than version control since we have integrated work item tracking, reporting, etc.
We’ve had a lot of customer feedback on wanting integration in VS 2003, VB6, etc. The problem with the VS 2003 environment is that there can only be a single version of the CLR loaded into a process. VS 2003 loads 1.1.
