TFS Administration Tool for TFS 2010

After a very long waiting time,  there is finally a new version of the TFS Administration Tool available. You can download it from the TFS Administration Tool project website. This release is the first version of the TFS Administration Tool which is built on top of the Team Foundation Server 2010 object model.

Note: Before installing the TFS Administration Tool 2.1 please make sure that you have removed the previous versions of the tool from your machine and that you either Team Explorer 2010 or Team Foundation Server 2010 installed.

If you don’t know the TFS Administration tool, in short it allows Team Foundation Server administrators to manage user permissions on all three platforms utilized by Team Foundation Server: Team Foundation Server, SharePoint, and SQL Server Reporting Services. The tool also allows administrators to easily copy user permissions among team projects and to easily identify any missing permissions on any of the three platforms.

A must have for all TFS administrators!
