It can be a challenge to move a project from one TFS source control to another.  This is because TFS has the concept of workspaces.  These workspaces are generally behind the scenes so you do not know they are being created.  If you try and move a project that is currently associated with a workspace it will complain when you try and connect the same project with a new source control.

The first step is to remove the workspace binding.  To find the workspaces go to: File>Source Control>Workspaces.
This will bring up the ‘Manage Workspaces’ window.

By selecting edit or double clicking on a name, the ‘Edit Workspace’ window will opened.

Select the workspace for the project you want to move to the new sever and delete it. VS should
allow you to move the project without any additional problems.  To connect to the new server
go to: Tools>Connect to Team Foundation Server…

Click on the server button then on the Add/Remove Team Foundation Server window select Add.
Enter CorpTFS01 and OK, then Close.  Select the new Server in the drop down list of the ‘Connect
To a Team Foundation Server’ dialogue box.  The available Team Projects for the selected sever
will be displayed.  Select all or the specific projects that you are interested in and click OK.
