  • 10-4 Episode 33: Downloading and Installing Visual Studio 2010 Beta 2

    We upgraded TFS from TFS 2008 (with SP1) to TFS 2010 Beta 2.  This is a single server deployment for a small team, with TFS, WSS and SQL all on the same Windows 2003 (with SP2) server.  As part of the process, we upgraded WSS 3.0 to 3.0 SP1, and SQL 2005 to SQL 2008 with SP1.


    The TFS 2010 Beta 2 install ran normally.  The Upgrade Configuration tool ran normally as well, however it ended with a few warnings:

    Warning TF205018: An error occurred when attempting to save the mapping from the SharePoint Web application to Team Foundation Server. The SharePoint Web application is: http://SERVERNAME/. The error is: TF250067: No connection could be made to Team Foundation Server at the following address: http://SERVERNAME:8080/tfs. Either the specified URL does not point to a server that is running Team Foundation Server, the server is not available, or the service account for SharePoint Products does not have sufficient permissions on that server. The service account for SharePoint Products might not have been added to the required group in Team Foundation Server. For more information, see the Microsoft Web site (


    Warning TF252014: A SharePoint site could not be created at the following location: http://SERVERNAME/sites/DefaultCollection. The server returned the following error message: TF250034: An access grant could not be found between Team Foundation Server and the SharePoint Web application that you specified. The Team Foundation Server ID is: 0a842b58-29c7-4862-b96e-b81a00885d85. The SharePoint Web application is: http://SERVERNAME/sites/DefaultCollection. You must grant access for the Web application in the Team Foundation Administration Console.. To address this error, open the Team Foundation Administration Console and make sure that the settings for the SharePoint Web applications that supports this team project collection are correct.


    Warning Failed to attach to the portal for project OldTfsProjectName. Portal address: http://SERVERNAME/sites/OldTfsProjectName. Use the Portal Settings dialog to attach manually. The following exception occurred: TF250057: No access rights were found for the following SharePoint Web application: http://SERVERNAME/. The Team Foundation Server ID is: 0a842b58-29c7-4862-b96e-b81a00885d85. You must grant access for this SharePoint Web application before you can use it.


    All our old TFS 2008 projects show up after the upgrade to TFS 2010 Beta 2 within Team Explorer.  The Work Items, Source Control Tree, and the shared documents all seem okay.  (Sweet relief).


    Note that:
    * WSS Central Administration site comes up fine
    * the new TFS Web Access site comes up fine
    * the default WSS site comes up fine


    The missing part however is that none of the old project portals can be found.  The old sites are completely gone from SharePoint.


    Do you have any advice on how to recreate the Team Project Portals for the existing TFS projects that were migrated from TFS 2008 to TFS 2010 Beta 2?


    Best regards,
