Error while creating a new Team Project on TFS 2010

When I tried to create a new Team Project on TFS 2010, the creation failed when I arrived at the Sharepoint part with the following error:

Exception Stack Trace:    at Microsoft.VisualStudio.TeamFoundation.WssSiteCreator.HandleSiteCreation(WssCreationContextWrapper contextWrapper, XmlNode taskNode)

   at Microsoft.VisualStudio.TeamFoundation.WssSiteCreator.Execute(ProjectCreationContext context, XmlNode taskXml)

Inner Exception Details:

Exception Message: TF249033: The site template is not available for the locale identifier (LCID). The site template name is: VSTS_CMMI_2. The LCID is: 1033. (type SoapException)SoapException Details: <detail exceptionType="TeamFoundationServerException" />

Exception Stack Trace:

--- end Exception entry ---

The reason was caused by a missing Sharepoint template with the name VSTS_CMMI_2 which wasn’t installed automatically after upgrading our TFS server to the 2010 version.

To solve the issue, execute the following steps:

  • Log on to the old Sharepoint site you used before the TFS upgrade.
  • Click on Site Actions and choose Site Settings.
  • On the Site Settings page, click on Site Templates under Galleries.
  • Click on the correct template to download the STP file.
  • After downloading the template package to your PC, log into the new SharePoint site.
  • Select Site Settings from the Site Actions rollover menu.
  • Select Site Templates from the Galleries column.
  • Select Upload. If you have multiple templates you would like uploaded, select Upload Multiple Files from the Upload rollover menu.
  • Browse for template(s) you would like uploaded, then click OK.
  • Your template(s) have been uploaded.
