Hello folks,

Recently I was involved in Installation and Configuration of Team Foundation Server 2010 Farm for a client. A month after the successful installation and configuration, Microsoft released Team Foundation Server 2012 in mid August 2012. Well, the company was using Borland Starteam as their source control and once started to use TFS 2010, their developers and project managers love it. No wonder right, moving from StartTeam to TFS. ;-) Anyways, long story short, they are now thinking of upgrading to the newest version of TFS. I had to work on what was supported and not supported by TFS 2012 from what we had currently in our Farm.

Below are some basic Hardware and Software requirements for TFS 2012:

Operating System:
  • Windows Server 2008 with SP2 (only 64bit)
  • Windows Server 2008 R2 with SP1 (only 64bit)
  • Windows Server 2012 (only 64bit)

SQL Server:

SharePoint Products:

Project Server:
Hardware:
