    The Discussion

      Very glad we're getting improvements to the setup/configuration experience!

      There's something wrong with the video after 17:30.  The video doesn't continue but the audio does continue.  Love to see the stuff at the end.

      Sorry Ed, looks like you're right - I'm trying to track this one down and will post a new version once I can. Weird thing is it worked at first so I'm not sure what's happening just yet.
    • briankel
      Ok, we should be good to go again. Sorry for the original problem - I re-encoded the video and tested it to make sure it's all in tact. Gremlins, I tell ya... Smiley

      We are skipping TFS 2008.  Is there a direct upgrade path planed from TFS 2005 to TFS 2010? 
    • zetes97
      Are there specific privileges that the Service account that is required to configure in TFS 2010?
    • EdH MSFT
      Yes, we are planning to have an upgrade path from both 2005 and 2008 to 2010.
    • EdH MSFT
      The Service accounts will be very similar to those required for TFS2008.

      For less complex installs (single server, no SharePoint or Reporting), Network Service may be used.

      Great quick and easy installation demo. Thank you so much.

      Recently, I installed TFS 2010 Beta 2 version in a single server synario and all of sudden data-teir got disappeared from the TFS Configuration console. I did tried to convert the current solution of my company and hanged couple of times.

      I can't access to view any event viwer because it keep on saying that even viewer service didn't started (I installed windows 2008 and SQL 2008). I ran repair from the Program and features at Control Panel twice but it still give me TF34001 connect contact to database.

      Is there any way, I can re-add data-tier? I searched MSDN forum but I wansn't able to find any solution yet.





      PS. Issue resolved. we are on RTM now.
