For those that have explored the Getting Started IBM CC-CQTFS Migration 101 Basic Training mentioned in the Getting Started with IBM Rational to Team Foundation Server (TFS) Migrations post, the evaluation and training sandbox environment is nothing new.image

We are working together with TeamDevCentral who are hosting and managing the sandbox environment for us.  The intention is to offer an easy to use and near-zero-admin exploration, training and testing environment for IBM Rational ClearCase and/or IBM Rational ClearQuest migrations to Team Foundation Server., based on the latest supported Team Foundation Server Integration Tools.

However, before you register and jump into the sandbox, please review the following table which summarises the intended, feasible and not-supported scenarios for testing and training:
