Microsoft Team Foundation Server 2010 MOSS Configuration Tool

Configuring your MOSS environment to enable Team Foundation Server integration can be a daunting task.

Microsoft tried to simplify this task by releasing the TFS 2010 MOSS Configuration Tool.

Microsoft Team Foundation Server 2010 MOSS Configuration Tool

You can use this tool to configure an existing installation of Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 or Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 for use with Microsoft Visual Studio Team Foundation Server 2010. The tool automates the configuration of the following features with certain default values, which are explained in the configuration instructions that are included with the tool. The tool will skip configuring a feature if it is already enabled and configured.

The configuration tool is designed to configure relatively simple deployments of Office SharePoint Server 2007 or SharePoint Server 2010. The tool uses default settings to configure the features. You should not use this tool if any of the following is true:

  • your deployment requires the use of specific ports or protocols
  • your deployment utilizes multiple application-tier servers for the server farm
  • you want to configure your deployment with settings other than the default ones used by the tool

I was able to get the tool working on my local test environment, but on our tightly secured company environment, I had one error after the other.

Anyone who had more success with this tool?
